Darrin is our next guest designer and has created quite the treat for all of us. Tomorrow the 28th of February I will be posting the shirt and it will be for sale in the store and Spencer’s shirts will be coming down at that time. I hope you’re all really excited because I am and have of course already added my order for one. Perks of running things I guess. Until then here is a little more about Darrin and his Pirate Abe that you will all see tomorrow.

Darrin Martin was born in the outskirts of the Washington D.C. area in 1982. He lived a full childhood. He was a daydreamer; he lived to create. Sure he enjoyed to play video games and wrestle, but he knew when it was time to get down to business. Darrin was no stranger to his imagination, however; he loved to read, play music, and had a passion for illustration. As his years took him to new places and presented him new opportunities, he seized them all. After high school in Langley, VA, he went on to a University where he continued to pursue his passions. He discovered he could put his creative juices to work and entered the field of design. After two long, ambiguously productive years and a “bureaucratic anomaly” of sorts, he was forced to an early retirement from continuing with his education in the field of design. After another few years and several other bureaucratic pitfalls Darrin squeezed through the cracks and graduated with a degree in English. Don’t worry, though, because only weeks after graduation Darrin received a job offer from a company with which he had previously interned. Darrin currently resides in Spokane, WA, where he creates performance automotive parts for Eurojet Development. There he designs, prototypes, and models aftermarket parts for Volkswagens and Audis. For many years he has also been part of several other companies and has had a hand in designing clothing as well. “Pirate Abe” is a reflection of Darrin’s inner self; it also represents the universal battle against the establishment and, of course, convention…
