JOHNNY – SLAMTOWN “Office of Mayor” – Wrestling T-shirt

I already had the pleasure of designing several original custom T-shirt designs for the U.S. wrestler John Hennigan
(John Morrison / Johnny Impact / Johnny Nitro / Johnny Mundo)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Morrison_(wrestler)

Johnny contacted me a few weeks ago and asked me if I felt like doing a new one for him and I of course said “Hell, yeah!”. He gave me a rough outline of what he was looking for. As always it needed to be an 11 or more on the “badass scale” and I was very happy to oblige.

SLAMTOWN – Office of Mayor Shirt design by Ian David Marsden

We went through several different variations. At one point we thought a biker style patch might be fun before we changed direction and ended up with riveted and bolted metal. A very fun project and I can’t wait to wear one of these myself.
