Get your summer threads at as I am proud to display my first apparel designs on this Holland based site. Be in style during the Olympics or sport unique fan apparel next season watching your favorite teams across Europe. Visit the online shop if you fancy yourself making a statement as a Man City fanatic or lover of all things Seria A. Brilliant work from other featured artists adding their own touch of flair, including Samuel Casal of Brazil, Robert Krums of Chicago, and Calum Margetts of Wales.

I have been collaborating on original designs, half in full color, for the European Championships 2012 and football in general, with Sven of FootyTees. For all designs, I worked on digitizing hand-drawn lettering and painted logo’s with a touch of Adobe Illustrator’s live trace on ‘La Furia Roja’ piece. ‘The Red Fury’ is a nickname for the Spanish national team, possibly the greatest soccer team in history because they are now consecutive winners of Euro ’08, World Cup ’10, and Euro ’12.

Finding a perfect outlet for soccer related art is a dream come true and I have to thank Hireanillustrator because that is how FootyTees found my work. Are you interested in submitting art and seeing your design realized on a hoodie or t-shirt? Check out

James illustrative work is driven by his passion for the craft. Although James possesses countless illustrative abilities, I find that he has a real niche for what I would describe as an abstract, hyper-realism. I commissioned James to create a very stylized title for me to use within my Youtube web series comedy sketch, "Hoop Conspiracies: Boston". James was incredibly easy to work with and not only captured my envisioned concept, but greatly surpassed my expectations. James Hartzell is an excellent illustrator with an extremely wide range of diversity and I highly recommend his art.
