“Superheros (Blue) ”
- Artist Brian Walsby
Release # BFLD239
Limited to 300
This was the 2nd T shirt design that Brian and I released back in 2009. The first was a Melvins tee. We printed it on a light grey Hanes shirt and 300 of them sold out in a few days. Needless to say, I was/ am excited about working with The Descendents. For me, they’ve always been one of those bands that it’s impossible not to love. They’re powerful and aggressive, yet display a youthful vulnerability. Their writing is overwhelmingly catchy and relatable while retaining a level of complexity and constant surprise. They’re well known and have sold and recorded a ton of records; yet they survive as undefeated champions of the underground. They’re the nerds that all the cool kids worship. They’re the few, the proud, DESCENDENTS… The perfect band. -Charles Cardello
This one was pretty exciting for me as I’ve been a huge fan of the DESCENDENTS since I was a kid. I first met and hung out with them when they played/stayed in Raleigh in the 80s. I met up with with them several other times when I was a “roadie” for COC. My favorite interaction with the DESCENDENTS would have to be the time in LA when I went to see them and Milo was late. Somehow, it was decided that the band would start their set without Milo and I would fill in on vocals until he arrived. I sang 5 or 6 songs before he showed up. Of course I drew a rather in depth comic about this which was published in MANCHILD 2. After several sketches and ideas, we came up with this design of the DESCENDENTS as Superheros. I hope the folks who snag one enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoyed creating it. -Brian Walsby
