TeeFury veteran artist CoD Designs (aka. Steven Gelenter) took the reins this round to curate his own collection. Attracting many new artists to the TeeFury artists circle, the set debuts tonight (3/25) at midnight Eastern Standard Time. To kick the latest in this continuing Artist curated series, here’s a few words from CoD:
First off thank you to the excellent staff at TeeFury for allowing me to takeover for the week. What an honor to be among such insanely talented company! I’m referring to all the amazing artists I chose and the ones TeeFury chooses to print day-to-day. I wish I could have worked with everyone but they limited my print spots because they knew I would get carried away 😉The motivation for the collection I put together was based on things I love. I made sure to pick designs that I would absolutely buy if I didn’t already have 1000s of t-shirts. I dug deep and searched some of my favorite subjects across the internet. I’m the type of person who knows what they want instantly. So when a design caught my eye it was easy to place in my pile of maybes. Narrowing it down to this select few was the hardest part. I have to give a lot of credit to TeeFury and Art Directors across the world for having to choose between apples and oranges! I also wanted to be fair and make sure I chose 1 design per artist. This way I get to expose fans to all types of styles and artists in one giant collection.
Being an artist on TeeFury is an incredible experience. I’ll never forget the first day I was printed way back in 2011. For the first time in my life I felt appreciated for the work I do and recognized for my talents. This is something I feel every artist is entitled to. We often get discredited for our genius and at times undervalued for our efforts. Sometimes an encouraging word is all we need to make us continue with design work. I reached out to a select few with some encouraging words and hopefully made a few people smile. I had the privilege to give a bunch of talented artists their time to shine. I’ve already had my moments in the TeeFury sun… let’s let these new and old friends of mine have theirs! Also be sure to follow each and every one of them. Leave them really nice comments and support their passion for creativity!
I hope everyone enjoys the collection and finds at least one amazing new shirt to wear 🙂Your Pal,CoD. A.K.A. Steve
Without further ado, the fantastic designs here:
