PAPA Shirt

Things are getting pretty exciting over here in DTZ HQ!  The new issue is shaping up nicely, and Alec and I are throwing our full weight into it!  So, while we slave away, I thought it would be nice to pull up a pinball image from the ole Jon Chad archives.  Last summer, I got to do a shirt design for the staff of the PAPA World Pinball Championships!  I really want to make it out to PAPA HQ in Pittsburgh one of these days, but for now, I'll have to be satisfied with ooh-ing and aww-ing from the sidelines, and drawing art of them.
I'm happy to say that I've gotten the chance to do more art for PAPA!  Some of which I'll show you soon, and some that you'd have to go to Pinbrugh 2013 to see!  Very exciting!

Oh, and by the by, anybody out there have an extra one of these staff shirts kicking around?  I *cough* never actually got one... 


  1. Ha-ha! Wow, that is so rock 'n' roll! I love that shirt design, Jon! Great work. Wish they were selling these. When do we get to see your Pinburgh '13 design???

  2. I wish they were selling them too! I'll have to make a bootleg one. You can see the poster design here: but I'm still keeping the shirt and ***** design under wraps :) Dude, your stuff for DTZ5 is AMAZING!!

    So you did a tropy design?? Was it an illuminated backglass?? Man I'd love to see it.
