The Blot recently stumbled upon FifthSun.com, which is the official online retail for Fifth Sun, a leading supplier of graphic apparel for the retail clothing industry. While I was looking through their online store, I noticed there were a number of officially licensed Star Wars t-shirts based on artwork from Mondo’s 2010 Star Wars Screen Print Series. There were t-shirts featuring the artwork of Tyler Stout, Kevin Tong and Ken Taylor without any reference to Mondo or the artists. While I’m sure everyone had to sign ownership of the original artwork over to Star Wars back in ‘10, The Blot hates that the artists themselves aren’t given any credit for their work. Ugh… It almost makes me not want to blog about the release of these Star Wars t-shirts.
The unofficial Mondo Star Wars Screen Print Series T-Shirts by Tyler Stout, Kevin Tong and Ken Taylor is currently available at the Fifth Sun online store in sizes S-2XL for $22 each (the crewnecks and raglans are a little more).
