A Mathiole and Frickinawesome collaboration symbolizing the continued abuse and illegal wars funded around the world by first world countries continuing to purchase diamonds from these areas.

Matheus and I strongly urge people to research their jewelry purchases to make sure they are buying conflict-free diamonds in order to not support these regimes.

If this design is selected for print, Matheus and myself will be donating half of our winnings to Hands For Africa, a charity that specifically aids the children and families of Sierra Leone and other countries in Africa that have been maimed or severely effected by the diamond trade.

Thanks so much for the strong support out of the gate, Matheus and I took about a year probing the concept to make the graphic as strong as we could, it's for a good cause and we didn't wanna muck it up :)

Forgot to mention - kudos to the pair of you for keeping the victims in mind by your tentative donations. I dig designs with social justice meanings, so a double respect to the both of you!

The thought behind this one brings tears to my eyes. You fellas have hearts of gold. It'd be even more incredible if Threadless set it up so that a percentage of the sales went to this cause as well. MAKE IT HAPPEN, THREADSTAFF!

love that diamond texture and how the blood drip!! $5

titus toledo

a powerful concept: hi ho!

Admiral cause, indeed. The only thing I would question is whether this image alone (and on a t-shirt) expresses powerfully enough that the wearer is against the acquisition of blood diamonds. It's a lovely graphic and one that would seem fit for a graphic novel cover - the rest of the novel would fill in the missing narrative.

Thanks so much Reags, we really want to turn that tentative into a one thousand dollar donation. It costs 99 dollars for a prosthetic arm or leg that was chopped off many children to instill fear in the rest of the villages to stay in line, so we could help out upwards of ten people in substantially bettering their lives.

That would be amazing, I likes this idea Jeremy!

Thanks for your thoughts on this Garo, appreciated! Hmmm, Matheus and I always intended for the graphic to be as descriptive as possible about a visual telling of the phrase "blood diamonds", and I feel we made the point and our cause as well known as possible without of course spelling it out, haha. It was never our intention to tell the whole story, which would be done most likely if someone asked you what your shirt meant, which is also why we provided some additional information about Sierra Leone's and many other third-world country's illegal regimes funded through the diamond trade.

Thanks again all for the amazing comments!

nice one!5

Raulio

Awesome!

Good thoughts Jeremy/Garo. I'm all for a percentage of sales going to this cause as well and even if the design doesn't directly speak against BDs as such, I believe the imagery is powerful enough to start little conversations such as this...and we all know all big things start small!
