Hi! I really like this question. For those of you who haven’t seen it, here’s one of my earliest designs, Super Homosexual.
There are no plans to reprint this tee, BUT it’s possible with any design of mine that if demand is high enough I’ll consider a reprint sometime down the line. This tee is one of the very first ones I released - probably around 2007 or so.
Here’s a fact about me that I don’t mention nearly enough: before I got into t-shirts and graphic design as a hobby that eventually consumed my entire life, I was a Japanese Language and Literature major. I was very interested in bringing more of Kobo Abe’s works into translation in English, in particular (I’m a big fan and I wish he was more represented on the shelves in the West!). However, while looking into grad school programs, I got kinda disenchanted and was having more fun making t-shirts and making people laugh, so I just went with that (I’d also been in the running for a few translation jobs and didn’t get them, so I’d just been feeling a bit down on my abilities as a writer and Japanese speaker).
I need to get back into more designs related to my academic upbringing; I’ve got a stack of Japanese books I’ve been meaning to get back into reading so I can start working along those lines. THAT SAID: I can’t just make a goofy tee with a joke about The Face of Another or something. If I start making tees influenced by modern Japanese literature, I don’t wanna fuck around, I gotta get my knowledge back up and just let it happen.
