About me


I'm Steve and I started this simple t-shirt company here in sunny Los Angeles, California because I have a passion for graphic tees and would like to share mine with the world. My tees have a focus on the colorful, fun, silly nature of video games, TV, and culture.

I got my start selling t-shirts (plus stickers, and iPhone cases) on Redbubble, but now I'm striking out on my own.

I'm a proud gaymer and I love listening to J-Pop while I design these t-shirts. Many of my designs incorporate Japanese in them because I enjoy it so much. (Ayu fan!)

For now I'll be focusing on just t-shirts. Hopefully down the road I can add stickers and other fun stuff.


About the tees

All of my t-shits are printed on American Apparel garments manufactured here in L.A. using local printers. I'm only using one style of shirt at the moment and plan on expanding on the selection, but for now I wanted to keep it simple. Tank tops for the summer soundalike a good idea, right?

About the Tee

Printed on American Apparel t-shirts. The smoothest and softest t-shirt you'll ever wear. Made of fine jersey, it has a durable, vintage feel. These classic-cut shirts are known for their premium quality, as well as ability to stand up to a washing machine (will keep size and color after many washings). The shirts are 100% fine jersey cotton, except for the heather grey color (90% cotton, 10% polyester).
