AnyForty v Chris B. Murray
About the T Shirt...
AnyForty v Philadelphia artist Chris B. Murray combine to create this cool sci-fi inspired T shirt. Chris tells us about his inspiration behind the work
When Alan Wardle (the owner / creator of AnyForty) commissioned me to design a piece for their new artist collaboration line I was thrilled! He expressed that he wanted me to create a sci-fi sort of piece, something edgy but attractive. Of course I wanted to create something classic and original for the brand. So I began watching every sci-fi movie I could get my hands on from Star Wars to Alien to the modern classic Prometheus. All helped inspire in different ways.
Originally I had drawn the character inside the helmet to be a frightened man that was getting attacked by the alien. We both agreed after that a woman might be more striking for the design. So we went with that, I finished the illustration and we were both super excited with the final design. Since working on this piece I’ve kept in touch with Alan and have been talking about producing several other pieces of the new year. So stay tuned for more CBM V ANYFORTY!!
