Starting a clothing project soon, just wanted to see what you all think.

C'mon bruh, afro samurai and bobba fett? Be original man, I know this is just some sketches and whatnot and nothing serious but don't get in a habit of biting other peoples ideas and art. Even that ship looks like you copied cowboy bebop.First off, its Boba Fett.
That's actually the point, I am just paying homage to some of the things that have inspired me all through my young life. Anime in particular is popular right now for brands to tribute to. The ship is Spikes swordfish fighter, The bounty hunter anti hero has been a big influence on a lot of the art I do, and Spike and Fett are both bounty hunters. Stop by my instagram Woolywolf if you want to see my original art, trust me I can do it! But I am taking advantage of the fact that I can honor the characters that have inspired every ounce of my art. Call it biting if you want, but I don't need to trace or copy someone to be original.

Think it through and come up with something original!!!

Think it through and come up with something original!!!I will agree that I think for the sake of starting I should do a more original design as well, these too I am just particularly excited about and want a couple shirts for myself. I think when they are completed in full you'll see that there's more to them than these character illustrations. But I won't drop either design. Ill be posting more art in a bit when I am closer to production, I have a Icarus idea in the works.

Hi I've started my own new brand. Its called YUGEN//+ . YUGEN//+ is a brand built around one of the many Japanese aesthetics. Created by me, John Adegbuji and established in 2014, we hope to provide apparel with quality and functionality. Yugen is an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and mysterious for words. Our only mission is to affect the culture, art, and taste pallet of a generation through creativity and innovation. Visit our site http://shop.yugen-again.com/ and tell me what you think. All feedback is greatly appreciated ! (Invalid img)Thank You !

I went bowfishing (fishing, archery style) last weekend at Big Bear Lake. I want one of these shirts now more than ever, BUT it must be an ode to bowfishing. If its possible... I'd love you forever.

lol this collection represents all fishing styles

Please, shut this project down before you lose anymore money.
If it didn't generate a profit, I wouldn't be doing it. No money lost on this end.

Question for those of you thinking about starting a brand, or in the process of starting one:

What are 10 questions you would ask someone (say James Jebbia or someone who has started and currently running a successful brand) about starting/owning a clothing company?

Every brand starts somewhere. Not everyone can drop $3000 or more out of the gate on a project. It all starts with the concept, something I feel like a lot of other brands seem to skip in the starting process. We're releasing a full line for F/W 14 that'll bring everything full circle.

We're not tryna flex like we the best brand out there right now, that's impossible. Just trying to put something out there as we get outta the gate.

Not gonna lie, these look like some pretty generic luxury-esque shoe, it just looks too basic and predictable…

Are these going to be under the know nothing brand or an off shoot?

I feel you man. Just something I was personally working on. Just wanted some opinions if it was worth following through with. Will most likely stick to the Know Nothing stuff and make clothes instead.

I mean if you have the opportunity to make good quality shoes, it might be something worth pursuing, I'm just not feeling this design. I have a feeling though that creating a successful sneaker brand is even harder than clothes. Still worth thinking about though.
