When the Thrush Knocks

When the Thrush Knocks

“Stand by the grey stone when the thrush knocks, and the setting sun with the last light of Durin’s Day will shine upon the key-hole.”

-J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

I’ve always loved the role that the thrush plays in the Hobbit, and I’ve been looking for a good way to incorporate all the related symbolism into one art piece. When the movies came out, the portrayal of the dwarf Dwalin as a tough, tattooed badass got me wondering what other tattoos he might have. If I were him, the thrush would be top of my list.

If you’d like to see this on a shirt, please vote for it over at Threadless. Thanks!

I had Kurt over at KARVT do a laser etched version of Heave Lies the Crown. It turned out PHENOMENAL. Seriously, my mind is blown. He’s running a contest for one over at his instagram, open for the next couple days.

I might do some more of these and put them up in my store if theres some interest…

Gama Bomb – Backwards Bible Shirt Design

Just finished these for the always amazing Gama Bomb‘s new song “Backwards Bible”. Its a sort of story about a half-assed satanist’s botched satanic rites. They asked for an evil goat headed cultist doing the Fonzie style double thumbs up. Who am I to argue? It was fun getting to do two different colorways for thiss design. I think I prefer the purple… gama-bomb---backwards-bible-seps-2
