I have this t-shirt for such a long time ago, but honestly i never wear it even one, maybe because it is black or maybe because back then i'm still slim and wearing this makes me look like a rapper than a hardcore kid, i gotta start wearing this more i think. since i'm bigger now.
As we all know this is not a band t-shirt, The is D.A.R.E. t-shirt and i am lucky enough to get this one. a friend gave it to me, he has a thrift shop, i told him " if you manage to have a DARE t-shirt please let me know" so he went to his room and gave this too me, turns out this is his private collection.
i don't know why, this shirt is simply one of the best shirt i have. i like the front design of the time bomb with 3 major religion symbol on it. and on it's back it says "Is This What ABRAHAM Really Wanted?". i don't know i figure this design is very cool.
One was a straight edge hardcore band from The Netherlands. The band released a 7 inch titled ‘No Submission’ in 1993, a split 7 inch with Spawn on Crucial Response Records in 1994, and then a CD titled ‘Crusade’ in 1996. i got this later on around 2007 from my friend, he gave this as a gift.

i love Look Back And Laugh, they are pretty underrated band, but they kicked so many ass. Too bad i never heard anything from them anymore. Here's a story, couple of years ago Conquest for Death came over to did a show here in jakarta (they show was especially rad, one of the best show i've ever attended), Devon, the vocalist (who also once sing for What Happens Next?) approach me and told me "wow dude, i never thought that anybody here would ever know about Look Back And Laugh, i actually know them, and can i take a picture with you? i want to show them that someone actually knows LBAL". So he did take a picture of me and him and show it to the LBAL guys. Devon sent me an e-mail later on and said that they were pretty shocked that anyone knows about LBAL. a pretty cool story...at least for me it is.

I'm glad i have Tragedy t-shirt, i know it's not anything special but at least i have one of their design. I'm actually looking for the Nerve Damage design and the Vengeance design. but we'll just have to see about that, right.it would complete me if i can have two of those design.
i got this shirt from one of the members, i force him to give it to me and so he did, this shirt was actually the test print t-shirt, currently on that time they only made 4 t-shirt. A really good band, Thrash Hardcore Punk kinda like Holier Than Thou and A.N.S with Discharge influence in it.
A pretty underrated band if you ask me, they play something like Cro-Mags and they are pretty good, i bought this randomly when my friend offered me to order stuff online. i still have a several bucks left so i picked this, the package arrive and it has a copy of their cd. sweet deal.
i used to love Stretch Armstrong back then, but with times are changing, i get bored of them, somehow i just seem don't care about it anymore. Don't get me wrong they are a really awesome band and me and my band once covered their song. i don't know why i just seem not too care about them anymore...sorry :p
This is the 2nd Pulling Teeth t-shirt that i have, it was sent to me a long with the Cherub longsleeve euro tour.
The story behind it was i offer my art to D, i finish it but never came contact anyone. couple of months after i sent the design, it was used for Euro tour poster and was printed as longsleeve. so i sent D another message about how i appreciate that they did actually use it for something, but i never got anything from it, turns out D forgot what my e-mail is and been waiting for me to send him my address...haha.
oh yeah this design is made by Nabbe the Bastard
I love Outbreak, and i love the design it was made by Mike Bukowski. too bad about this shirt i sold it because i needed money for tour. i sold it to my friend, he promised me that if he ever get bored with the shirt or needed money he is going to sell it back to me, Yeah he sold it alright....but not to me...such a prick!
Heresy has always been my favorite ever since i heard about then the first time, it's fast and harsh and what not to love about then? i forgot where i picked up this shirt, maybe i found it a thrift shop here (thrift shop here in jakarta is always at a huge market, there are literally hundreds of stalls and most of them are 8 meters wide)
You have got to love Cro-Mags, right...well it depends to certain people but i do certainly love Cro-Mags.
I picked this design because it is a Ramayana design and i kinda find it unique. i'm currently looking for the Narashima design (the lion eating a man). now that shit is cool
My D.S.13 shirt...this shirt is probably of of my favorite, i can put this one into my top 10. first it's because it's D.S.13, second it's because it was designed by Pushead, and 3rd i picked this up from my friend who needed money to enter a show so he sold me this for $7. sweet deal.
think i'm going to collect more pushead design from now on.
Boston's finest band, i love this band ever since i know them a bootleg victory rec compilation, back in 1998. manage to buy yet another of their bootleg tape (apparently back in those year all you can receive is bootleg).
Oh funny enough, i found this shirt at a local thrift shop, it was dusty and dirty but hey it's a bargain.
One of the several design of Carpathian when they came to jakarta
i didn't manage to see them, cause i was sick for like 3 months.
This shirt, i borrowed it from a friend and i don't have any intention of giving it back. but turns out my other friend who knows the owner of this shirt, force me to give it to him, he also have no intention of giving it back to the owner. Oh well, it's not my responsibility anyway now..haha

I purchase this one at a store...nothing special really. though i do remember that i bought this in half price...
oh well also to remind myself that this t-shirt is still at my friend's house. need to get it back cause i ran out of non-black t-shirt. i got bored at black t-shirt anyway. already start selling some of my collection.
One of the designs i made for A Thousand Punches, if you notice the past post, it was called a thousand punch, now they change the name to A Thousand Punches due to grammar correction. So yeah, this is one of the newest design i made for them, the first ever design for new name A Thousand Punches. this one was still a test print, the lower part of the t-shirt are too low for the print thus making it look like it has been cut low and sewn up. i've been thinking about getting the better version of the t-shirt from the band though.
This is not a band merchandise! atleast to my thought...this should be.
this is from local clothing line called NOTORIOUS.
why i posted this? it's because i like the design, and i consider this one as a collection. once this one goes out, it will never get printed again...and only several of these were made. fuck it, it's my blog i can post anything i want anyway...haha
Not sure if this is Clint Eastwood or not, but it sure does look like him.
I receive this t-shirt while they were touring to Indonesia, at the jakarta show.
i got this and other freebies from them as a down payment for creating another design for them...yay!!
This is the first Outbreak t-shirt i've ever hold. i'm not sure when but was around 2005-ish. back then Outbreak weren't as hype as it is today. and it was really hard to get this one, since one one actually listens to outbreak or know outbreak back then. I manage to buy another same design of this t-shirt. but the thing is the newer version i bought doesn't have any white print in it...it only uses black & red ink on grey shirt. i sold that version and kept this one. i looked everywhere and turns out that this design is pretty rare cause it's printed in 3 colors. hopefully i'm not mistaken about this :)
Jakarta's finest experimental band...i'm not good at describing genre. let's just say that if you like Jesu, Amebix, Bongzilla, Eye Hate Good & 65 Days Of Static, you might like this band. did i mentioned that i made the design? well whatever....
it was the first time i made any design for band in what i describe above, so i really have no clue on how to make it. Most of my designs are punk + hardcore +occult +zombie related...i made this design inspired by their song "At Sea (We Are Nothing)", and by their album theme. hand-drawn art, and copy paste to a full circle...no biggie about it. but turns out they love it. Cheers for me.
there's a hoodie design also, but i'll upload them later since i'm kinda lazy doing it now.

Fuck! three months without update...shit i gotta start putting up bunch of more of this t-shirts collection. Yeah took me long enough time to collect more t-shirt to upload anyway, haven't take those picture yet though. but i will soon enough.
I made this design way back then, i was sending message to Pulling Teeth and they asked me to make a design for them, i send them the design but never receive anything from them...it was okay, i mean i didn't asked for anything in return anyway. I sent them a message again after i noticed that it was used for their Euro tour...Dom forgot about my email, then he asked me for my address. i receive this an another t-shirt. sweet deal...
after this, they asked me to do a couple of more design for them.
