To be frank, it is hard to find quality music in all those dazzling channels made available to us, surely we have no shortage in this digital era. I made this shirt to bring about the awareness of jazz music. I too love the work of electronic stuff, but to only embrace in one category of music is just not my way to enjoy what the world has to offer.
Hero On Turntable
It’s hard to beat the good old fashion turntable running into a tube amplifier out to a tall box speaker travelling into your ear and eventually landed in your heart. The voice of Nina Simon mesmerizes so many people in her time. Still, till this day, Simon’s music has never failed to ignite the passion in me. Surely there is more out there that share the same sentiment of mine. This being said, Simon is just one of them, and if you cannot hear it, you must be deaf.
Music Is Like Fashion
Have you ever come across people whom are the latest stuff out there and deem everything that happens before are like shit that should flush down the hole? I know a few in my circle, more to the point I think a lot of people are caught up with the fast motion of change, each have to outdo the others may have drive people to be like this. What can I say? People are either asleep or awake and they are entitled to have their own opinion.

Fingerprint was use as signature in ancient Babylon in the 2nd millennium BCE. To protect against forgery, a legal contract created between two parties by setting their fingerprints into clay tablet, which used to identify the marker.
Not only the Babylonian used fingerprint identification, have the Chinese used it as far back as 246BCE. Not until 1788, the German anatomist Johann Christoph Andreas Mayer recognized that fingerprints are unique to each individual.
Fast track to our modern world, by 1935 retinal identification was first conceived by Dr Carleton Simon and Dr Isadore Goldstein. However, the technology advancement was not capable to realize the idea for practical use.
In 1976, a corporation named EyeDentify formed by Robert “Buzz” Hill delicate its resources to research and develop retinal scanner, follow by the first commercial model to be release in 1978.
Today, there were many speculation of the coming RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology for the human race. The conspiracy theories communities acknowledge its coming is inevitable while others call it a hoax and insist this technology does not exist.
In 2002, the VeriChip Corporation (Known as ‘PositiveID Corporation’ since November 2009) receive approval from FDA to market its microchip implant in US. However the product was not successful due to the later finding that had caused cancer to hundred of laboratory animals.
How possible is the microchip human race? I would say it is not anytime soon. As whether you believe in an evil empire controlling the human with implants or this technology can propel the advancement of humanity to a higher stage, I leave it to you to conclude. I design this t-shirt to bring the awareness to the public of the microchip human implant.

Social media have reached a state where it have root into our daily life and become part of our daily experience. We laugh with it and cry with it. We learn about the world not just what the news tells us but also through our friend’s perspective to arrive at our own conclusion.
Some try to use social media to expose the truth of which to some people might not believe it exist entirely in their conventional environment, some will want to salvage as much as what is already a damage climate by bring out the awareness of pollution.
Be it what the reason behind the use of social media, it is a powerful voice of the people, it represent the world itself.
I want a t-shirt that represents this idea. This is the third revision. I think I would not make anymore change to this current version.
Hope you like it.
Bike Banner by Visionalfreeman
I have always admire Harley Davidson riders, they always have this palpable style in them while throttling down the street like they are the designate spoke man of the official motorcycle club. This inspires me to design the Bike Banner.
I want a different style compare to what already in the t-shirt market. A style with clean line and simplify approach, focus solely on the engine design and set in more metal-part details to form a masculine design.
As for the base, I want it not just print on a common black shirt but on some fresh colour with strong contrast.
Bartender Tee by Visionalfreeman
I have always admired the work of a bartender. Bartender not only serve drinks to customers, they also entertain the guests, create a relationship from customer to friend. A bartender remembers how, when and why customer wants the drink. He or she who is behind the bar anticipates the needs of the customers. Some customer like to talk, there are some who just want to be left alone, occasionally need some attention to fill up the glass without having to ask. There is no training for this sort skill. Only he or she who hands on the job behind the bar knows it all. I made this t-shirt to dedicate to those who chose to be a bartender.
8 Ball Pool by Visionalfreeman
It is my passion in the 8 ball game that had lead me to design this t-shirt. With this project, I deploy modern geometry perspective to arrive at this version of design.
I keep the colour simple because I like to see the contrast of the print on wide variety of colour shirts cater to customer who prefers either warm or cool colour.
35mm Photography T-Shirt by Visionalfreeman
The first time I set my hand on a 35mm camera to learn photography was a digital SLR. I was not entirely intrigue by the experience until I lay my hand on a 35mm Nikon FM2.
I am not making this a digital vs analogue opinion, rather the experience I had with the FM2.
Working with the FM2 or an analogue camera made me very focus on my subject and keep me on the edge, thinking of the lighting condition and the style I want to capture.
The result after I developed my first roll of negative film was interesting. The sensation between downloading digitally capture photo to the computer and develop a roll of negative film is different. I find that the process of getting the result is more rewarding to me than digital workflow.
In this encroaching popularity of digital products in our society, many of these film manufacturers are out of business. I made this t-shirt design to celebrate the beauty of film photography and bring awareness to the photography community. I hope that there will be enough users to support film production in many years to come.
Stop Drinking Emergency by Visionalfreeman
The idea of this design comes to me when I was having a drinking session with my friends. One of us got drunk and somebody mention if only there was push button to prevent such fiasco.
I than got on working on this by combining the element of an emergency button color in red attach with a tag.
