Blind Guardian Tour Shirts 2016

This year I have once more had the pleasure of creating art for one of my favourite bands, Blind Guardian. I am always excited when the band approaches me to talk about artworks related to the music of Blind Guardian. These new paintings are linked to their latest album Beyond the Red Mirror. I would like to use the opportunity to share the new artworks with you.

Working with the band is a real pleasure because they know exactly what they want and understand how the creation of art works. Working with them is both challenging and gratifying.

  • Why only black? I’m so tired of total preponderance of black t-shirts in metal. There are so many other nice colours! If people were able to accept Hansi with short hair, then IMO they would not react hostilely to such a ‘novelty’.

    Great designs. I already bought a Blind Guardian tour shirt last time they came through, but I think I might have to buy another.

  • Beautiful!! Do you know where I can buy the US Tour shirt? I’ve seen the band in Fort Lauderdale last weekend and need a 2.shirt

  • Wow, that looks awesome. So good to see traditionally created artworks. Looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future. Keep it up!

  • Thank you very much for your feedback Tagril. I understand your request and keep it in mind. Black seems to be the favourite color of most of the metal community when it comes to bandshirts.

  • Mitch, thank you very much for your feedback. I am happy that you like my artwork.

  • Thank you very much, Katja. I appreciate your feedback. I am sorry to say that I do not know where you can buy the US tourshirt elsewhere than at the merch booth at the concert.

  • Thank you so much for your feedback, Felix.

  • Bought the “portal”-shirt on their 2015 tour and a longsleeve back in 2012. 🙂

    I agree with Tagril. I have so many black shirts, but only a few white shirts of some bands.

    From these designs I like the “a feast for the crowd” (good one^^) and the “Prophecies”-shirt. 🙂

  • Beautiful artwork, absolutely stunning! But as already said here, I miss other color options :/

  • Thank you for your reply ❤️ Love your art!!!

  • I agree. Offer us more colors.

  • Robz, thank you very much for your feedback. It is great to get feedback regarding the t-shirt colors. As I said to Tagril, I’ll keep that in mind in the future. Personally, I can imagine something on a grey t-shirt.

  • Thank you very much for the feedback, Lucas. I’ll think about possible color options.

  • Thanks for your feedback, Jeremiah. I will consider some color options in the future.

  • Lucas Sirieiro

    Commenting mostly to congrats on your designs, they’re awesome! I really want to buy the Prophecies t-shirt, just couldn’t find them on the internet for sale yet (not even on ebay!). Do you know where I could buy them?

    Btw, I second the idea of having more colors, gray would be certainly nice.

  • Thanks a lot for your feedback, Lucas. The Prophecies shirt is available at the EMP Online store. You can just click on the photo of the Prophecies Shirt in my blogpost. It is linked to the shop.

  • Hey folks, the EMP website isn’t working for me (times out).

  • Sorry to hear that. The links seem to work for everyone else. Try again in a few hours or contact your provider. Good luck!

  • I would love to purchase 1 of each of these in an xxl or xxxl however the commerce site is only limited to Luxembourg and Germany. Is there a best route to buy these for personal use if you are outside of those countries?

  • Hi Sam, just scroll down the bottom of the site – there you will find links to all the EMP shops in different countries. They have shops at least all over Europe.

  • OMG FINALLY – after searching the www I found the US Tour shirts online:

    You’re welcome!!

  • Thank you very much for the information, Katja.

  • Dear Andrea,
    Any chance to download these great artworks in high resolution for my desktop pc screen, please?

  • Dear Valeriy, thank you very much for your comment. I am glad, that you like the designs. Unfortunartely it is not possible to publish the artworks in high resolution. Kind regards!
