The Hard-Ons are very flattered that John Burwood has lent his intense and quirky talents and spirit to a t-shirt design for us. John’s design and art are right up our alley – comic characters that are surreal, monstrous and in-your-face -Raymond Ahn/ Hard-Ons
Having been given the honour of coming up with a shirt design for Australia’s beloved punks The Hard-Ons, I decided to turn to my fandom of Kaiju for inspiration. The first creatures I came up with were the two metal kangaroos. The body shape of a kangaroo made Metagojira an obvious choice for this parody… I call ’em Metaroo and Metajoey. Next I turned to another uniquely Australian animal – the platypus. Nothing unusual here.. Just a duck billed, beaver tailed, otter footed mammal that lays eggs. Add to that a pair of venomous spurs, and you’ve got one deadly Platyrider! Lastly, the most true blue of the bunch – the thorny devil. Found throughout Australia’s deserts and scrublands, these tiny critters look like they’d make a hell of a menacing kaiju. Devil Doragon rounds out my four Aussie inspired characters, making this shirt design all set to go! –John Burwood
