“I Need a Sugar Fix” Shirt by Brieland Graphics

2016 update: Original artist website tasart.com. Commented below!

shirt.jpgThis t-shirt was bought by me in possibly 1994 (going by the date it was copyrighted) in a store like K-Mart (which i think it could have been). The teeth, eyes, and anything else white is glow-in-the-dark. Since my purchase in 1994, I have never seen someone else wearing or know of anyone that has one of these shirts. This page will hopefully solve that problem. If you have any information on this rare peice of clothing or have one yourself, please use the comment area.


bothshirts.jpgThe shirt I own today was not the only one I ever had. I originally had one that got ripped on the shoulder. A new one was bought immediately (the one I have now). The torn shirt was found recently and since it was only worn a few times the color is in great condition.
