I'm not a smoker but there have been some pretty key figures in my life who smoke and so I have this fascination with lighters. As has been the case with other lighters I've done, when I'm coming up with each specific design, I try to imagine two things: one, being electrified and/or somehow affected by knowing you have this very weird and singular totem in your pocket. it's in there, rubbing around, getting old, wearing and tearing, and you are forced to remember that every time you sit down. And two: what must it be like to be out somewhere and someone asks you for a light and you give them one and they see this lighter...what must that conversation be now?

This particular design is something I'm really excited about and proud of...it follows in the footteps of the least popular shirt from the 2071 Capsule — Meta. I've got a deep fascination with using parts of headlines or parts of logos or otherwise recognizable marks, as well as taking, let's call them 'points of emphasis' out of context and seeing what they emphasize. In this case, they emphasize that Spider-Man is a big drama queen which, truthfully speaking, really fits in with my worldview and reinforces my love for him.
