Who doesn’t like a nice ironic shirt? I don’t know the answer to that, but I’ll tell you right now I do and I cried a little on the inside when I found out this Ript Apparel design was on sale during my birthday and I didn’t take advantage of the sale.
Even though pigboom, the Philippine designer who made it, has his own online store I’m pretty sure this Studio Gojira design won’t cost $10 if and when he puts it on sale. Darny darn.
Update: Yup, his design is up on his official Red Bubble page for $30. A bit pricey (and yes, before you go there I know you can get it for $20 in other places), but it’s worth it if you got the cash and can help support the artist directly.
