After Eleven Apparel starts in 2004 when Morgan Gore, a fifteen year old high school student from New Jersey, took the opportunity in graphic design project on a T-shirt. Since beginning, Morgan’s designs have had strong roots in music and the action sports industry.
In 2005, Morgan began selling After Eleven at The Bamboozle, an annual three-day music festival held in New Jersey. And After Eleven currently sponsors some bands like; As Artifacts, Foolish Ways, Rushmore, Someone Like You, Every Last Thursday, Cain & Abel, Our Judgment, and more. In 2010, After Eleven made its mark at the Vans Warped Tours as an official tour sponsor.
Like artist YemaYema, I’ve always wanted to learn to skateboard. Something about cruising down the street, standing on a sweet deck sounds rather appealing to me. It’s even cooler if you have a great design on your deck. I will learn someday. It will happen! But enough about me, let’s talk about this design.
Skateboard Boy ($12) is a new Tilteed Limited design by YemaYema that shows a skateboarder having a great time riding through town and getting some big air. He even has his ghost friends right there with him, with one helping him out with his tricks. And it wouldn’t be as fun if there weren’t any energizing music for him to skate to, so he’s definitely prepared with that boombox. What do you think they’re all listening to?
This is the first shirt in months to be printed on mint at Tilteed, and I’m glad because it fits the illustration perfectly. A design like this definitely calls for a bold shirt color, and mint is one of the most unique colors that American Apparel has to offer.
Skateboard Boy ($12) by YemaYema is available at Tilteed only until Noon PDT on Wednesday, October 20. Be sure to get yours before this boy skates away, never to return again!
