JAMIE FOXX Sporting Welcome Clothing Custom Shirts at the 2009 BET Music Awards

This project was a GREAT test for Welcome Clothing Hollywood.  The day after Michael Jackson's passing, Jamie Foxx's fashion coordinator arrived at the Melrose shop with a list in hand - she needed 6 MJ shirts ASAP for Jamie Foxx to wear at the BET Music Awards (which had been converted to a Michael Jackson tribute show).  The show was in 2 days.  We turned around all 6 in less than 12 hours.  The designs included the Bad album cover, Thriller album cover, "Eddy are OK" theme shirt, and more (all created by expert designer Clayton Garrett).  The next day 7 more were needed, including one very specific design for the OPENING ACT of the show!  I took great personal pride in designing all 7 shirts including the opening act "Beat It Shirt".  Not only did I get to make shirts for Jamie Foxx, of whom I am a fan, but I also had the opportunity to really test my graphic design skills since the only "guidance" provided by the customer for the Opening Act "Beat It" shirt was a 200 Pixel JPEG (pictured below).  Furthermore the picture only showed 1/2 the shirt...  Customer: "We need that shirt" Me: "No Problem".  I made the shirt in a few hours, printed it, and delivered it as requested.

Two Welcome Clothing Hollywood custom shirts made it into the 2009 BET Music Awards that weekend (the opening act Beat It shirt and a BAD album cover shirt).  Between the two, Welcome Clothing Customs were represented for over 20 minutes of "On Air" time at the converted Michael Jackson tribute.  Here are some pictures below (check the gallery section for more).  One last interesting note: Jamie Foxx and I have the same birthday (December 13th) and the same first name (Eric).  Sometimes the greater flow of life REALLY makes itself known to you :)
