SPAWN TILL YOU DIE – LONG SLEEVE
This seems to be the image that most people remember me for. It’s been the most popular T-shirt and poster for over a decade and would probably make a nice epitaph for my tombstone. It sums up the two great urges in life quite nicely: Eros and Thanatos; Love and Death. What else is there? They connect us to all our vertebrate cousins and by extension to all the spineless wonders as well. The shirt shows up in movies and TV shows every now and then, inevitably worn by a bad guy- and it’s usually one of the classic black-and-white shirts we first produced. I’ve spotted it on disaffected teenagers in Newsweek magazine and on the occasional rock star in Rolling Stone. One of my proudest moments was seeing a member of Metallica wearing one in a Hit Parader magazine spread.
