The Moustached Amputee is heading out to sea on a T-Shirt this year.

You've heard the story, heard the song, now you can display the most excellent goldfish that is Freddy Mercury, in all his ElRat envisaged glory.

I listen to a lot of Hersh music, and am often inspired to draw pictures because of them. I never expected my T-Shirt ideas would be for anyone but me... But here they are, actual Hersh shirts, out of my mind and into the world...

Screen printed onto a Black T-Shirt, in orange, eco friendly, water based ink.

All shirts have a soft finish, and are fully machine washable inside out at 30c

No stiff, plastic, flaky prints, here you can buy something more environmentally friendly, soft, comfortable and hand printed.
