We circle back to artist Rodrigo Pires and his company Designed by Death as he tackles the tiniest of killers in this awesome shirt design.
Hey, horror fiends. You may recognize the name Rodrigo Pires. We did an artist spotlight on his Ghost artwork, which has now become official Ghost merch on their website. A huge congratulations to Rodrigo for that amazing achievement. Even though his Ghost art is fantastic, his company, Designed by Death, tackles horror movies too.
A huge thank you to Designed by Death for sending us this amazing shirt design. Aside from the Ghost designs, one of my favorites was The Smiths song “There is a Light that Never Goes Out.” I love how Rodrigo takes some of our favorite songs, bands and movies and turns them into amazing comic book style shirts, shoes and more.
That’s right, he makes SHOES and they are just as amazing as you imagine they would be. Designed by Death sent us a shirt featuring one of the smallest and funniest slashers of them all, Chucky. I can honestly say that I have never seen Chucky quite like this before and it has become one of my most favorite shirts.
The shirt features our favorite serial killer inhabited doll holding a pizza cutter as the advertisement to Chucky E. Cheese. I can’t tell you how many compliments I have received wearing this shirt. The design is so big and colorful that it begs to be noticed. Check out the unboxing and then keep reading for more information.
If that isn’t the most creative representation of Chucky than I don’t know what is. It’s like a mix between Child’s Play and Five Nights at Freddy’s. It’s truly hilarious. The shirt itself is incredibly soft and the black fabric is a deep black. The print isn’t too thick and cannot be felt on the inside so there is no discomfort in wearing it. After several washes in cold water, the print holds up like a champ and the dark fabric hasn’t faded. I wouldn’t recommend drying unless you want to explore how much shrinking this particular cotton might do.
Overall this shirt is wicked. The design is amazing, the shirt is insanely comfortable and it’s by an artist that you all should definitely support. This shirt was sent to me but my opinion on the shirt and Designed by Death is entirely my own and I am a big fan. This particular shirt is from Teepublic but you can also find his wares on Ghost’s official merch store. This shirt is $20 but on sale now for only $13!
