Shary, who lives in California, got his start with band t-shirt art during high school in England:
It was pretty good seeing my artwork on people’s bodies, so from there on out, I started contacting bands that I liked. I thought that since I liked them, that maybe I could help them out by doing stuff, if they are into it too.
Interested in a Chris Shary original for your band? It's easier than you might think:
I think that art should be affordable. You should also be getting what you are worth. I have people who are contacting me every week to do t-shirts or album covers or single covers or whatever. It’s very, very easy. I’ll work with virtually anybody. I’m flattered when people want me to do things for them.
