$10 RIPT Apparel: Put Up Your Hands

Join the conversation

You can't blame me for thinking that today's shirt was another in a long line of Halloween tees.  The arms that reach over your should look like they've been ripped from a zombie and the accompanying picture is of a graveyard and a lurching ghoul.

Given a little time, though, I realized that Kevin L. Cornett, a design student from Dayton, is actually trying to recreate for you the emotion and energy of a big concert crowd and an overexcited performer.  It's easy to see why he chose to distress the hands, breaking up all that black, but perhaps there is a better way...like an ornate latticework for skin.
