Dead-simple artistic expressions can be the most effective ones -- you don't need more than two minutes of mind-blowing noise to make a classic punk song, and you don't need more than two minutes blowing an ex-punk-turned-producer to make a classic pop song. Getting dead-simple with the t-shirt, Coyote Alert.
Straight out of Denton, Coyote's an ever-broadening line of solid-hued shirts rocking (probably) purposefully unaccomplished free-hand drawings of everything from animals and insects to video game iconography and ominously disembodied facial hair. Hand-screened onto American Apparel tees, hot designs include "Flies Revolt" (squadron of houseflies approaching from the right side of a V-neck), "DinoBot" (a boxy robot standing at attention next to a T-Rex mech), and "BFF", featuring former Halo archenemies brought so close together by the bonding experience of war, they've actually become 15-year-old girls. Scraggly haired numbers include "The Boss" (Texas outline sporting a nose and handlebar moustache), "Hair Today" (some guy named Gustaf's beard tumbling down to become ocean waves), and "The Potato King": a heavily bearded yeoman-farmer standing uncomfortably next to his old-timey font'd title, as if embarrassed by the praise heaped upon his root.
Coyote's at its most direct with text-based numbers bearing messages like "This shirt was made by Coyote Alert and therefore demands respect". So get on your knees if you want to be a star.
