In the beginning…

It started as kind of a joke. Back in 2007 the Pittsburgh Steelers had just hired a young coach that not to many people had heard of but he must have made one hell of an impression because he beat out many other better know candidates. After seeing several interviews with him I was sold and began joking that he would be the Messiah that Pittsburgh fans had been waiting for for to deliver them to the promised land. This idea was floating around in my head and while doing research for an Elvis Presley illustration for a client I came across an image of The Sacred Heart of Elvis and Saint Tomlin was born.

And it was so.

The company I was working for at the time wanted to test a new screen printing technique but needed a design with more detail than we normally printed and asked if I had anything they could use for the new process. Later that afternoon the first Saint Tomlin t-shirt was made and that evening I wore it to my oldest sons football practice. Within five minutes of saying my hellos to all of the other parents on the sideline one of the Dads did a double-take and asked me "Where did you get that shirt?!?" When I told him I had made it his next question was "Can you make me one?" quickly followed by "No wait, can you make me six?"

And I looked over all I had made, and I saw that it was very good.

I haven't rested since.

Care Instructions:

We HIGHLY suggest that you machine wash the tees inside-out in cold water, and do not use bleach! This will help to preserve the designs. Be sure to wash dark colors separately. Also, do not iron over the designs. We also suggest to not have the shirt dry cleaned because solvents are often used that may be harmful to the print. Hang dry or tumble dry on a low setting. Shirts may shrink a little due to 100% cotton construction.
