SUBMITTED JULY 2018
BY CHRIS ECKMAN
I’m excited to announce that we’ve just finished designing the first batch of our Thrill of the Chase inspired t-shirts. This project provides us the opportunity to highlight some of the work of talented US Military Veteran artists and designers.
Treasure hunters and fans of the book and poem alike can share their passion with the world with Forrest Fenn inspired treasure shirts.
Our first designer is Kyle Gunter. Kyle is a US Marine Corps combat veteran who served three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as an Infantry Rifleman. Kyle has a passion for art and design that started at an early age and transcended into multiple mediums throughout his career. After leaving active duty, Kyle went back to school and got his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Houston. Kyle is currently an Art Director at M2 The Agency, based in Conroe, Texas.
We hope that you enjoy Kyle’s designs as much as we do.
Treasure Shirt Designs
There are five unique shirts to choose from and each one is innovative, attractive, and fun – all showcasing the spirit of the thrill of the chase.
All of the designs are available in a variety of colors/sizes and you can choose from sweatshirts, tank tops, and accessories as well as the t-shirts that are featured.
The Rocky Mountains shadow this potential clue where the statement is bold and has meaning to those searching for the treasure.
Anyone who is searching for Forrest Fenn’s treasure will know exactly what this shirt means and it’s the perfect way to share that you are a treasure hunter too.
By request from Lugnutz we’ve added a new gold colored design Brave and in the Wood shirt.
Forrest Fenn’s memoir is The Thrill of the Chase and nothing could be closer to encapsulating that slogan when it comes scouring maps, the endless nights of research, hiking through the mountains, and being caught up in the thrill and excitement of trying to find the treasure.
Got mad thrills? You know who you are and these words mean more to you than your average person – it is symbolic of your love of the chase.
Do you enjoy a little danger along in your search for Fenn’s treasure? If so, then this is the shirt for you. It depicts the skull and cross-picks – both being symbols of excitement, with a little bit of jeopardy.
Many have tried and all have failed. Will you be the one?
You definitely might not have to dig deep into the ground to find the treasure, but this is a design truly captures not only the prospector in us all, but the true outdoorsman. This design is more minimal and subtle but in just those two words, the entire meaning of a true treasure hunter is captured.
It’s up to you to choose your own adventure in life and whether you enjoy hiking, hunting, fishing, or treasure hunting – blaze your own trail is an affirmation that many live by.
Just four words yet they mean so much in keeping with the spirit of finding your way, as well as finding your treasure.
This design also features the states included where the treasure resides in one of them – Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico.
