The OSWP T-Shirt!
Dear listeners (and non-listeners!) of the Old School Wrestling Podcast,
Dre and myself are thrilled to announce the debut of the first Old School Wrestling Podcast t-shirt, designed by the amazing Box Brown who’s been featured in such rags as Mad Magazine and wired.com and helps run Retrofit Comics at retrofitcomics.com.
We’ve been thinking about the OSWP t-shirt for awhile. We wanted to do it right. We didn’t just want to throw a logo on a shirt and call it good. We wanted a t-shirt that captured our personalities and our (and many of our listeners) perspective on professional wrestling. After being introduced to Box’s art via the Atomic Elbow print zine with his amazing adaptation of the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Top 10 lists and getting to know him via Twitter, both Dre and I felt like he could come up with something that would really capture the spirit of the podcast.
We initially gave Box some vague ideas and he came back with some good sketches, but we weren’t happy yet. Finally Dre came up with the amazing “OSWP mail order gimmick” idea. We sent the general idea and some scans of old mail order gimmick ads and Box ran with it and blew our minds with his design, coming up with all of the specifics on the shirt. Special thanks to Atomic Elbow on the last minute proof reading.
