What if Photoshop Filters were Super Powers?


A few months ago the tshirt version of “Filter Heroes” (drawn by Joshua Kemble) made its rounds in the blogosphere. After a healthy amount of buzz it occurred to us that a good amount of people who enjoyed this concept may have loved to pin it up on a wall, but perhaps lacked the designerd courage to pull it off as a fashion statement. It is for that audience that we now present the art print version of the same design as a 13×19 glicée print suitable for framing or pinning up in your Herman Miller Office System.


In addition to this re-release, we also dug up the original sketches of this concept from around 1999 by Amin Amat who interned with us at The Chopping Block before he became a legitimate force in the comic art world. That version of the concept was to portray each member of the company as a hero whose powers were to be defined by the Photoshop filter of their choice. The difference being that those powers were to be in the body copy only and did not alter the appearance of one member to the next. While that does spoil much of the fun, the original version was to be more of branding exercise than a spoof on Adobe software. They are here attached below and see the original studio blog post about the tshirt for more about the birth of the concept.

Depicted from left to right is The Chopping Block as it was in 1999: Brian Romero, Thomas Romer, Mike Essl, Matthew Richmond and Rob Reed.

That???s One Nerdy Trio of Prints, Harry

nerdrider_hires craftsman_hires squidrobot_hires

A bunch of new prints suddenly appeared on chopshopstore.com and are even nerdier than a whole boat load of robot icons. Nerd Rider (left) is actually the original version of a tshirt that has mysteriously disappeared from our collection due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control. The Craftsman (center) was inspired by the video game World of Warcraft and the actual real-life appearance of most of the “warriors” that play the game. Finally, The Squid and the Robot (right) was inspired by the prevalence of of both squids and robots in tshirt designs during the year 2009.

All digital prints are produced and printed on archival Moab Rag Bright white and the weight is 190 GSM. The size of these particular 3 pieces is 13″x19″.
