Eight-year-old EVO contender gets exclusive clothing line

Eight-year-old Noah "The Prodigy" Solis exploded onto the elite gaming scene this year by placing in the top 48 Marvel vs Capcom 3 players at EVO 2011. It hasn't taken Solis long to capitalize on the attention he's received because of his skill at such a young age by landing a contract with The Traveling Circus competitive gaming team. As a part of the deal, he will get an official clothing line featuring designs by the eight-year-old himself…

Noah lives in Lompoc California, with his Father Moises Solis, and two brothers, Sisto and Qualy. In his own words, "I went with TTC as my sponsor because they treat me good, they are nice people, they give me hope in my future, and they believe in my ability. I like their name. [They] are nice to me. My dad is comfortable with their character and my brothers approve."

The sponsorship means that Noah's tournament booking and other appearances will be handled by TTC, and some of the sales of his clothing line will go to his family. Noah's first t-shirt design is a self portrait printed on 100 percent cotton that's machine washable and preshrunk. We think the work shows a lot of potential with the bold use of the artist's signature and impressionistic interpretation of curves. You can get your own from TCC for about $20. Don't wait too long — the price can only go up as Noah matures as an artist and a professional gamer.
