Whimsical Story Text And Actual Background Text Together–
I love space. I love adventure. I love monsters and creatures. I love creative storytelling. I have combined each of these affinities and mushed them into 4 (4 in an ever-growing set!) pieces depicting future astronauts that were sent from our very-far-into-the-future Earth in the year 4418A.H.E to investigate celestial sounds too low to be a star, too high to be background radiation, and too rhythmical to be anything of nature. They don't know how far it is, how long they'll have to travel to reach it, or even its exact location. The only thing they do know is that they're willing to check it out because it's their job.
Finally they reach their destination and here we are witnessing each of the crew's initial, frightened, sympathetic nervous system-activating reactions to what they originally sought, on these commemorative shirts.
Aboard their ship "Carrageenan 6" we have the second in-command Decklan Trident Bustanoby, medical enthusiast Bosson Jakkobi Malmsteen, ship maintenance manager Phillip Phillips Julius, engineer Miles Howard Winslow xiix, map reader Ralston Uuf Concano, robot-and-music player Terminus Lee, lifeforms specialist Lionel Doovius Kambbak, and as many others that come into my mind.
I feel like my artwork style is I-don't-know-what-I'm-doing-and-managed-to-make-this-here-look! and this set of illustrations is very much the same. Mostly I like to amuse myself and other people so that's the direction I naturally head towards. Lately I've been focusing on perspectives and I have been challenging myself with a more broad use of color as well.

The Shipping Box And What's In It–
Packing supplies by EcoEnclose and all printing by greenerprinter. Packed by me, and shipped by USPS Priority.
It is my goal to ship shirts as soon after they get ordered as I can. Since these are more uncertain times for business as well as individuals I am estimating anywhere between 1 to 3 weeks. I think the shirt is worth the wait and if you don't, then for now, hold off on ordering. Maybe sign up for the mailing list to get updates.
