All this stuff, I made for you

In the spirit of Holiday gift guides and such, this is pretty much everything available for sale with my drawings on them. I made it all for you.

Original Drawings

Selection varies, as the drawings tend to sell rather quickly. Check the shop often, sign up for the shop newsletter and/or follow me on twitter to get the latest updates. (I've been busy with some commissions and upcoming exhibitions, so there hasn't been much in the online shop. I hope to remedy that very soon)

Signed Prints

8x10 inch signed prints, just $20 each. This is one of the first things I ever sold on the internet. If you haven't visited the shop in a while, you should, right now. I've got some new ones available, including I'm a bit shy, if you were a chair and if you can read this it's probably windy. Yes, I really do sign them all myself, and I pack and ship them too (sometimes with the help of my 9 year old son).


Not many of these left, so get one or two while you can. Most online booksellers are out of stock, but The Book Depository has it, and they ship for free internationally. Find out more about the book, or just buy in here.


Printed and fulfilled by the almighty Spreadshirt. There are some new designs, including stop the bad music and what to focus on, as seen below. See all the t-shirts available.

Temporary Tattoos

By now you've probably already heard about these fun little non-committal tats from Because they're so darn fun! See all the designs available.

iPhone and iPod
skins and cases

I get asked for iPhone skins on a regular basis, so I finally set up shop on Society6. They do iPod and iPhone skins and cases, as well as prints. I'll get to their prints in a moment...

Framed prints, large prints

I've been wanting to offer larger prints, and framed ones as well, and now they're here. For example, you can now get a 28 x 34 inch print of Beard Octopus. That's a pretty big beard/octopus. You can also get nice looking framed prints too, like the ones below. Shop for (unsigned) prints, framed and unframed. (they do stretched canvases too! I know, it's all quite overwhelming.)


MiniCards from - they're like little calling cards. They're smaller than a business card, so they stand out in their own little way. Get a set customized with your own contact information from the US or UK sites.


Well that's it. Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to produce in the comments below, or send me an email. I'm always open to suggestions.

I used to be against the idea of offering merch with my drawings on it. I just didn't want it to become my focus, and end up makng drawings specifically for t-shirts and such. But I soon realized that for many, it's a preferred, and possibly intimate way of bringing art into one's life.

European t-shirt shop now open

Hooray! I now have two t-shirt shops: one based in the US, and one in Germany. So you can now order H is for Holy Crap tees from whichever base is closest to you.

By the way, this is a shirt I ordered for my son:

All of my shirts are printed digitally by Spreadshirt, and I've been really happy with the quality. I especially like how my watercolour drawings are rendered. Here's a close-up of my son's t-shirt (which had been washed and dried several times before taking this photo):

Not all of the shirts have this look. I converted some of my drawings to vector graphics for some of the tees, because they looked better and bolder that way -- I made changes to some drawings so that they would work better as t-shirts.

Celebrate your artsy fartsy-ness:

I've used American Apparel tees whenever possible, however they are a bit more expensive in Europe. I wanted to stick to sweatshop-free tees, and I haven't tried out other companies at the moment. Continental looks promising though, and is offered by Spreadshirt. Anybody familiar with them?

Shop for t-shirts: North America | Europe


T-shirts of my drawings are now available! I am super excited to finally offer some of my drawings on shirts in a little shop set up using Spreadshirt.

Below is my 5 year old son, wearing his favorite slingshot shirt. It's been washed at least a half dozen times, and the design has held up really well.

Visit the t-shirt shop and have a look around. Everything is just on tees for now, but I'll add long sleeve things and such. Let me know if there's something in particular you'd like to see.

(I tried out a number of different t-shirt services, and there are actually a few good ones out there, so it was hard to choose. Spreadshirt is working out pretty well.)

Mustaches enjoy cycling too: a drawing for Lap the Lough

Lap the Lough is a non-profit fun cycling event outside of Belfast, Ireland. Participants bike around Lough Neagh, Ireland's largest lake (heck, it's the 3rd largest lake in Western Europe!).The organizers asked me to do a drawing for their t-shirt, and I said yes because they were so charming.

The original drawing is SOLD for sale in the shop. All proceeds from the sale of this drawing go to Lap the Lough and the charities it supports.

Famous People's Teeth on a t-shirt

I'm really excited to have a drawing made into a t-shirt by the brilliant folks at Turtlehead (use discount code "marc johns" and get 20% off until June 10th). They've done shirts by Keith Walsh, Adam Cruikshank, Will Bryant, Will St. Leger, David Shrigley, and many other terrific artists.

To be honest, I've been hesitant to do the t-shirt thing. I don't want to get to a point where I am drawing for the purpose of making products. But I like Turtlehead's approach. Besides, any organization that has worked with David Shrigley is tops in my books!
