Grover T-shirt collaborations
Grover T-shirt collaborations
Several months ago T-World journal (the world's only bi-annual journal dedicated entirely to t-shirt design) approached Jake Nickell at Threadless about curating a collaborative t-shirt design for that most lovable of furry blue monsters, Grover for Sesame Street's 40th Anniversary.

The catch was that it had to be 6 colors or less, and had to be completed in one week!

After coming up with an initial concept that everyone liked, I was lucky enough to art direct and compose the project that includes design elements from 21 artists living on 6 continents.

There's a great writeup of the project and our collaborative creative process in the current issue of T-World, available here:

And hopefully the shirt itself will be available sometime soon as well! If it does go to print, the Grover luggage tag will be on the back hip rather than the front.

And a big thanks to all of the contributing artists: Tan Nuyen, Brandon Ortwein, Stuart Colebrook, Tonteau, Rodrigo Ferreira, Jim Gray, Dianne Gordon, Blair Sayer, Jublin, Keith Kuniyuki, Ross Zeitz, Marco Angeles, Robbie Lee, Aaron Hogg,
Ben Foot, Brian Cook, Wotto, Gavin Rampling, Dann Matthews, Ian Leino

I'm so impressed with how you put it all together. Thanks again. I'm glad that I jumped in and did the TX Sticker. This was a great project to be a part of.
