Duncan Hills Coffee!

Duncan Hills Coffee by Loco Robo Co.

I am a huge fan of the show Metalocalypse and the music that came from it from Dethklok (Brendan Small). For a while I had seen a bunch of other T-Shirt designs with the Starbucks logo on the daily shirt sights. So this was on the top of my mind when one day my ipod randomly pulled up non other than, the Duncan Hills Coffe Jingle. As seen here...


I frantically searched the internet to make sure this amazing idea had not been done already. And to my surprise it had not! I started working on it immediately. I grabbed a notepad and started sketching it out. I started with a loose sketch of the original Starbucks logo, then started drawing Nathan's face over top. I thought to match the mermaid tails (or whatever they are) I would put both hands up with the devil horns sign. But when I took this to digital it looked dumb, so I went with one of his classic mic holding hands. Now for the devil horns I ended up with, I took a picture of my hand to get the angle just right. Then I swapped the starts for pentagrams and BOOM a brutal design is born.

So finally this design is being printed on one of the daily shirt sites. This will be available at ShirtPunch on Thursday May 30th 2013 for only $10! If they sell enough they may even do the sequel designs! See below!

Of course all of these are available now at!

Kill Phil (Sorry Phil) printing on Qwertee!

Kill Phil (Sorry Phil) Available on for 24 hours!

This is my third official print on one of the daily tee sites. This design came to me around Halloween. One of my favorite movies was on TV, Shaun of the Dead, so of course I watched some of it. But I noticed that Comedy Central removed one of my favorite parts, where Shaun and Ed sit and plan how to save everyone, they go through several plans, all of which include killing his infected father-in law named Phil and rescuing his mother. Comedy Central only plays the last version of the plan. See the clip here.

So as that was on the top of my mind, Kill Bill Vol.1 came on and I came up with this idea. Kill Phil done in the style of the Kill Bill movie posters. Now I know what you are thinking... the Kill Bill posters are yellow. Once I got into the design I felt thinks were getting lost on the yellow background, so I found a version of Kill Bill on black with yellow type setting, so I went with that.

So I  merged the Shaun of the Dead stance with the Bride stance of the Kill Bill poster. I turned the cricket bat down to match the sword angle from KB and removed the flowers. I also decided to go with a more animated style to avoid licensing issues. I also added a swoosh of blood in the background to mimic KB but to also give people a reason to say "you got a bit of red ya."
