How did it start then I hear you ask?... well I think I have to go back some months to the 26th February 2014 to be exact. Where I reached out to Derek Padula, for some advice on my concept, and who would be a great artist to get involved.
Javier – “the other half” of JustSaiyan describes our meeting and relationship like this “I would say that you contacted me because of Derek, and that even I'm not bilingual, we talk to each other like 2 buddies lol” yehp says it all really, 2 buddies, who are constantly skyping each other – have design talks – life talks and basically shooting the breeze everyday!
Up until the 25th of April 2014, the un-official artwork we created for Goku and Vegeta had all been for me, for my birthday. That all changed when Derek suggested that these awesome t-shirts designs should be stuck up on DBZ Reddit, to get feedback.
When I posted “I stole trunks time machine, Look what I came back with - not your usual” On Reddit.. I wasn’t expecting that much feedback so quickly… I had nothing, no website, no social media, not even shipping set up – NOTHING. Over the next couple of hours I built a website, started social media (twitter) to capture demand and questions!
This is the start of something that, at the beginning of the year wasn’t even a thought – It was the fans, which made Justsaiyan, I am merely the orchestrator to deliver dreams and happiness!
