Hey everyone! I know it's been too damn long since I posted a giveaway (or even posted for that matter) but hopefully the sheer awesomeness of these shirts will make up for it...
Chris Sink is a man of many talents. He's a painter (his true crime ones of Ed Gein and Albert Fish being my favorites), he's a tattoo artist out of Louisville, and he makes killer T-shirts from films that are hard to find shirts of! eXXXploitees is his company and he makes thick, high quality 100% cotton shirts printed with plastisol ink. Each shirt is hand screened and features designs from horror, exploitation, grind house, sleaze, and cult films. Do you know how hard it is to find a shirt for fucking "Manos: The Hands of Fate"? Who the hell makes that!?! Well, Chris does as you can see below!
|The movie so..."nice"...they had to name it twice!...literally, it's fucking hands in spanish...|
"What I try to do with my shirts is to offer designs that aren't widely available. It seems like every is either doing the exact same designs, or they're doing more comedic takes on them. While I don't think there is anything wrong with that at all, and I do own TONS of those shirts myself, I just started to miss the days of simple one or two color, straightforward designs. I think that stems from growing up in the punk rock scene in the late 80's, when that was mostly what you found. Simple, straight up designs in either black or white ink, hand screened nice and thick, on good quality shirts. Not a cheap transfer on a thin shirt. I also started to notice that there were a lot of movies that didn't have shirts available, so one day I thought "Why not do them myself?". I started with a few and then I noticed that people started asking me where I got them, and if I would make one for them. And so here I am... haha."
And the prices are just right. Starting at $20, you can get great shirts from your favorite grindhouse flicks. Personally, my favorite is Mark of the Devil (the top pic), but any one of them would be a treat to own...which is exactly what will happen to one lucky DBH reader!!!
