Flugel Mi Melodyhorn!
For a very short while, I was in a band. They were multi-talented extraordinary human beings, and I was green- and played nothing but my own vocal chords.
The lead singer decided I needed to bust out some kind of instrumentals along with the rest of them, as it would look far better on stage. So he drove into town (we were in Sicily at the time) and procured a Glockenspiel and a Melodica.
Believe it or not, I fell in love with the melodica- it's got such a soothing sound, and lends itself well to big reverb in recording. It may look silly to some, but there's a reason it's on a bunch of dub reggae mixes!
After my trip with the band I came home and made this design to pay homage to a very cool life experience, and a very cool instrument.
The shirt is a Unisex Fine Jersey Short Sleeve T-shirt from the original American Apparel line (before they were purchased by Gildan). It's undergone a distressing color removal technique which has an effect that hints at tie-dye. The art was hand screened in my studio in Brooklyn, NY.
Pre-washed, fits as expected.
One of a kind- only available in this size.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or requests for this design on a different size. So long as I can get a hold of a purple shirt similar in quality to the older American Apparel I can make this again. If you want a different color I'm happy to send you photos of other options.
All of our apparel comes packaged with a pair of hand-stamped 3D glasses and a one of a kind hand-painted 3D printed ornament.
