Before I headed off to LA for IndieCade 2013 last year I decided to kit myself out with some new duds (hello, the ’90s.). But instead of just buying the nearest Batman shirts, I thought, why not design some of my own? I’ve done it before.

A lot my friends are Venture Bros. fans. This is a t-shirt I had printed as a gift. It features a few quotes from the show that other characters use to describe Brock Samson.
