Ronin


So Ronin is our latest anime graphic t-shirt. This shirt is pretty special as its production was met with blood curdling setbacks. Ronin was ideally set to be released on late January. Unfortunately our printers had ran out of the custom tags that they normally stitch onto our shirts for that Boomslank brand experience. In retrospect it was my fault for not tracking this properly. As if I had tracked our hem-tag inventory, I would have re stocked in time for the Ronin. Anyway, having run out of tags, we went to our supplier out in Canada to get more tags, but our supplier was on vacation and had assumed that her employees would do the right thing and take care of us. But her employees went out their way to do the wrong thing. They turned of their phones and ignored my countless emails to them to restock on tags. Calling them everyday and going straight to voicemail was really painful. And I was rather reluctant to go to a new supplier as we found a good routine with these guys. But eventually I had to do it. The show had to go on after all.  So we found a new supplier and placed our orders with them.

These new guys defined the word "Suck". As if to give me a preview of the impending craptacular experience, the sample tag they made for us was absolutely wrong. The colors were inverted and the star looked like a blob trying to take the shape of a star.

 


While our previous supplier would get the tags done in a week and ship to our shirt printers, these guys would normally take 2 weeks to print the tags. Now that wouldn't be so bad if that was the only problem. Somehow they managed to take a whole month to do the tags. And after they had completed the tags and shipped it to our printers, our printers called us to let us know that the tags were so badly done that there was no way they could use them. At a certain point your anger turns to a sad kind of laugh. The laugh you make when you realize that you've been tossed into a perfectly bad situation. Didn't even bother calling the suppliers as I was genuinely tired of dealing with them or even hearing their voices. So I went back to our previous supplier. That was when she told me that she was on vacation and that her employees should have taken care of me. To which I just laughed again and simply proceeded to place my order with them again. And in a timely fashion that I am accustomed to, the tags were done and shipped to our printers. This was all done in March. Way off the mark considering that it should have been released in January.
 
Anyway as they always say, "All is well that ends well. Our new shirt arrived today and I have to say it looks amazing. Well you be the judge. Check out Ronin.

Boomslank in the wild. Anime t-shirt watch.

So if you run a business, especially a small one, you get a really good high from seeing your products being utilized by strangers who you could never identify from Adam himself. Is a big difference when you see strangers wearing your anime graphic tee on the street or at a convention.

All shirts are now $25!

All tees 25

So, yesterday or was it Tuesday, my brothers and I, met and we talked about how we could make the shirts cheaper for you guys. We noticed that the shirts would be cheaper to print if we ordered in larger quantities. Well , fortunately the profits from last year's sales, provided us with the opportunity to increase our volume.

So to keep from rambling, all our shirts will now be going for $25! Also keep an eye out for newer products coming soon. ;)

Have you ever looked at a drawing and it sucks you in? I mean like you experience it more than just visually. You can feel the breeze, smell scents, and even hear sounds from the drawing. I experience this when I look at the works of one of my favorite artists, Shinkai Makoto (新海 誠). I really wanted to do something like that with Pisces. I hope when one looks at the drawing they can feel the subtle breeze or hear the deep bassy sound of a 30,000 kg. humpback whale passing above. Well...not sure if I succeeded but hope you like the art. ^_^

Hey guys! We've missed you all. We've been caught up with introducing some new product segments. But in all that chaos, we managed to get one new design in the pipeline. Stay tuned, we all hope you love this design half as much as we love it. It will be available in sizes small to XXlarge. That's right we are bringing back XXlarge. Some awesome fans requested it and we listened. :D

I have always been a huge fan of anime involving mecha (anime talk for machines). Shows like Gundam series, Evangelion, Escaflowne, Code Geass, even the classic Transformers all fall under this category.
I love the mechanical details the artists put into the machines. One could almost imagine them existing in the real world. So I really wanted to design a mecha themed shirt, but also illustrate a cutaway art of the mecha showing some of the internal mechanical goblins ^_^. I also used a member of our ever-increasing cast of mascots, "Mie chan: as the pilot XD.
