This T-Shirt by Milton Carter is a bit grim if you think about it, but I am sure that it is all in good fun. Some might even think of Faces of Death 2010 as an homage to some of the celebrities that we looked up to. The T-Shirt features a wide collection of celebrities and pop culture icons who passed away in the 2010.
The T-Shirt features “a collection of recently dead celebrities ranging from cultural lumiaries (Lousie Bourgeois, Dennis Hopper, Alexander McQueen, Lena Horne, J.D. Salinger) to musical greats (Guru, Ronnie James Dio, Alex Chilton, Solomon Burke, Malcolm McLaren) to pop culture icons (Tony Curtis, Corey Haim, Jimmy Dean, Gary Coleman, George Steinbrenner).”
Faces of Death 2010 is available now from Milton Carter’s Etsy site for $20.
The concept of a The Faces of Death T-Shirt originates way back in 1997, when M. Carter published an image of the deceased from the year (1997) in a zine called Gank. The series then continues in 2002 when Carter screen printed a T-shirt featuring 2002 deaths in his kitchen. Following 2002, Carter went on to make versions of Faces of Death for 2009 and 2010.
I actually think these are pretty neat. It is at the very least an interesting way to remember people that we may have admired. Below you’ll find some images from the 1997, 2002, and 2009 versions of Faces of Death.
