New Batch of Johnny Cupcakes Goods

Johnny Cupcakes just released a new batch of tees, and I have to say that this might be one of my favorite releases. The Warhol inspired Soup Can T-Shirt immediately caught my attention and Legalize Cupcakes once again infuses an old school illustration style that we’ve become accustomed to with Johnny Cupcakes. A plaid heavy aqua version of the classic crossbones design rounds out my favorites from this release batch.

Also of note is the Johnny Cupcakes Crossbones Umbrella. I’m in the market for a new umbrella and this just might be it.

The new tees are priced at $35.99 a piece with the new Make Cupcakes Not War colorway priced at $38.99. You can snag the fancy Johnny Cupcakes Umbrella for $29.99.

101 T-Shirts for Artists, Art Snobs and Photoshop Gurus

So despite the first epic shirt list being daunting and time consuming, I decided to do a follow up! This time, I switch from the natural sciences to the arts and humanities by featuring 100 + 1 T-Shirts for artists, art snobs, photoshop gurus and everyone in between. Know someone who enjoys art? Chances are, they’ll enjoy at least one of the tees on this list!

Side Note: This list almost proved to be futile! I started this list about a week after the epic 101 T-Shirts for Scientists, Science Geeks and Nerds list and it took me nearly a month to compile a list of 101 worthwhile T-Shirts that fit into the category of appealing to either artists, art snobs and/or photoshop gurus. I almost gave up on the list. The first time I called it quits was after I found the first 10. Then when I reached 50, I thought, 50 is a nice round number, why not stop here? But I kept on searching every corner of InternetLAND and I eventually found 101. I hope you enjoy this list, because I sure had a difficult (but worthwhile) time compiling it!

The Eloquent Delinquents Opens in New York City

If I were in the Big Apple I’d be checking out this gallery featuring works by artists like SEEN, Banksy, Damien Hirst and Russell Young. They’ll also be featuring items from pop culture icons like John Lennon and Andy Warhol. Here’s an image that I snatched from Juxtapoz of a life size hand painted fiberglass cow by SEEN. 

You can check out The Eloquent Delinquents in New York City at 41 Wooster.
