The merchandise that goes with the Blind Guardian – Live Beyond the Spheres album is now available from EMP.
The artwork on the shirts and sweaters might look identical to the album cover but I made a few changes:
- I moved the dragon further towards the front so that it pops out of the attire a bit more.
- Also I decided to build upon the theme of chaos, renewal and decay by changing the edge of the image so that it breaks away into the void (hah!) of the cloth.
- Last but not least I enhanced the color scheme so that it works better in textile print.
- For the back/pocket print I expanded some of the imagery from inside of the digipack.
So: What you get is not just a cover artwork slapped on a shirt – but a custom-tailored image adapted to the textile, the beloved bandshirt.
I am looking forward to wearing these to the next Blind Guardian shows myself. And I am really glad that we got to make a girlie-top.
