Work Sets You Free T-Shirt – Deadline Designs

19 12 2009

I found a strange inspiration in this design as I read the news that thieves stole the Nazis’ infamous sign declaring “Arbeit Macht Frei” – German for “Work Sets You Free” – on Friday December 18 from the entrance of the former Auschwitz death camp.

The slogan “Arbeit Macht Frei” appeared at the entrances of other Nazi camps, including Dachau and Sachsenhausen. The long curving sign at Auschwitz is considered the best known and it is the basis of my design.

New Batman Movie Study – Deadline Designs

23 11 2008

I don’t have to convince you that my favorite superhero is Batman. For personal reasons and my job relationship with the City of Los Angeles, I feel inclined to this character because I’m a volunteer firefighter and I dress in black, sometimes, in dark blue, when emergencies arise. Therefore, I’m one of these Dark Knights who saves lives and property very often.

This study is my reminder that I’m in public service helping my community in the City of Los Angeles and Hollywood. A city very similar to Gotham City in many aspects. Otherwise, I live therefore I am.

And one more comment, if you live in California, please prepare for the Big One Earthquake. I don’t have to tell that your survival ability depends on how well prepared you and your family are.


Design By Humans – Deadline Designs

Today, I just joined Design By Humans to experiment with Jumbo Prints and other techniques. It seems like a  lot of creative fun and a good opportunity to be rated by other artists. As per DBH Terms of Service, my new designs at DBH will not be included in other POD internet stores.

My new profile at DBH is Fraktur and you can join DBH and leave comments. Thanks.

Obama Power – Deadline Designs

5 11 2008

‘Change has come to America’ in the words of the new American President Obama and he is a winner with a historic position in the White House.

I usually don’t do political tees but I consider my design part of the celebration of America and in the words of Timothy Leary’s Manifest, ‘We have to mutate.’

The design is based on the musical Hair, a tribal peacenik celebration, which comes also at the beginning with the prophetic song of Aquarius and if you don’t believe in astronomy (or astrology), check the position of the stars. Aquarius’ lyrics comes as very pertinent song saying,

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius
Aquarius! Aquarius!

And that’s what precisely has happened to America. We have entered in the Age of Aquarius. You can read the rest of the song in websites that include the Aquarius song.

My design is available in this section in items of different background colors. No more falsehoods or derisions for the people of America. Somewhere Inside America, something there is a rush of Greatness. May God bless you, Mr. President.



Einstein Returns – Deadline Designs

2 11 2008

This is a post from my other blog, Big Bang Tees, but I thought it deserves to be included here because the photodesign is very cool.

There are many funny renditions of the new Joker that appears in the new movie of Batman entitled The Dark Knight. Mr. Ledger made a superb job hard to improve and it will remembered as a classic role forever in Hollywood. However, I was searching for the authentic Joker in real life and I found the answer from my science books. The answer was Albert Einstein, a scientific superhero with a great sense of humor, who also made a classic photograph with his tongue out.

My photodesign was colorized with still the best system available, Kodak Precision Color Transformers Management System. Interesting, Adobe Photoshop never included this color profile system with support for Pantone after modifying Aldus Photostyler. If you’re interested in ordering the tee, go to this design section and order the item in different background colors. Enjoy Einsteinmania!
