"Sincerity" T-Shirt - Yukio Mishima's severed head
I did a block print of this basic design about a year ago. Several of the prints are for sale at this week’s “Germophilia” show in Philly. There are a few unframed ones going for like $20, as well as a framed one with daubs of my own blood for $50, so if you’re interested, contact Kevin Slaughter.
However, block prints are not so great for t-shirts, but I really liked the design, so I updated it by making the face more of a half-tone graphic (it’s Mishima’s severed head, btw).
I probably will not be selling these…too labor intensive to be profitable on this scale. I was just tired of wearing my staple plain black t-shirts all the time, and wanted something that related to my own work.
The quote on the back will read:
“His was a battlefield without glory, a battlefield where none could display deeds of valor: it was the front line of the spirit.”
- Yukio Mishima, Patriotism
