Japanese T-shirt collection: video games and directional tactiles.

These three were from a shop in Shibuya, Tokyo circa 2007. We weren’t allowed to try any on. We were given generic shop stock in white to try, then we hoped that the different brands would have consistent sizing. The middle T-shirt design is made of puff-paint and the tactile indicators are raised up. This was a favourite amongst the Landscape Architect community in which I used to work. The other two are based on 1980’s video games: Galaga and Dig-Dug. The grey T-shirt is capturing the pixel moment where the Pooka character is blown up (using an air pump!) by a miner. The photo links also show the back print, if there is one.
