It stands for Eyes, Mouths & Noses. Creative AF, I know.
It originally started as a drawing I did in October 2017 for #Inktober using only Eyes & Mouths. A year later I'm playing with the idea again and added Noses. Boom! T-shirt design number 2 (EMN) is born.
Fast forward to 2019, a couple weeks before San Jose Day in April. I wanted to make a new shirt for the event and get it done quickly so I thought drawing SAN JOSE in my EMN style would be a piece of cake. Wrong! It took me an extra two months to get shirt number 3 (EMNSJ) made. Barely in time for SubZero in June.
Fun Fact: They are not faces. Each eye, mouth and nose is fully independent of one another.
The list below are the names of people who bought shirts from me on the first day I sold them. It was Friday, June 1st 2018 at the Subzero Street Fair. All I had for sale were my logo tees, the 1.0's, available in black and white. Not a single person, who didn't know me, bought a t-shirt. Only my friends did. I could have easily sold zero and given up on t-shirts entirely after the festival. Instead I sold 12 shirts that weekend and decided to keep the party going...
