It’s getting difficult to maintain Doodlesplatter on my own, but when I saw these, I knew I’d have to find some time. Somewhat unbelievably, there are no other Jon Burgerman socks in the artkive! Clearly that had to be remedied, so Jon partnered up with Sock It To Me to produce a pair of doodled socks in women’s and men’s styles. Each pair costs an affordable $9. Check out the rest of their funky foot-enhancers here.
The era of that previously blogged Pens are My Friends New Era cap is finally upon us. Thanks to New Era Cap Talk, here’s previews of six classic 59Fifity and size-adjustable 9Fifty Snapback caps designed by Jon. The collection should be available this month at hat shops and all New Era flagship stores. The retail price will range between €40 and €50.
Turtlehead are a collective based in Ireland with one eye on the establishment, another on the subversive and another on stuff they like. Their designs are part social commentary, part public art, part rant, part up theirs and part down with this sort of thing. Everything is limited to 500 pieces and all their t-shirts are printed in Ireland on ethically made and environmentally friendly 100% cotton t-shirts.
Jon doodles on clothes and also on skin, so it only was a matter of time before he pulled a Gallagher and painted on what appear to be rain-slicker-like-coveralls. Actually, come to think of it, don’t these folks look a bit like Woody Allen’s sperm in Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask? And I mean that in the politest way possible…
Were you wondering who made the burger sweatshirt (possibly called a “jumper” for our friends in the UK) Jon was wearing as he painted Bangalore in this AOL video? This bright yellow garment was lovingly crafted by the talented folks at London’s Lazy Oaf. It’s not a Burger Product, but it’s a burger product all the same.
Lazy Oaf is famous for it’s bright pop graphic T-shirts, reversible sweats and accessories collections. The company is driven by illustration, graphics, drawing, and fuelled by tea, hamburgers and Brian Blessed’s knarley foot. The Oaf’s have often contributed to print projects, exhibitions and events.
This East London based creative label was started by Gemma Shiel back in 2001 with hand screen printed tee’s and a market stall in East London, skip to the present and lazy Oaf is available in over 150 stockists worldwide. 2004 saw the opening of the lazy oaf store in Soho which houses all of the collections and further Oaf oddities sourced from Japan and the US.
Lazy Oaf products are designed in house by Gemma and the Lazy Oaf team from the Oaf HQ in Shoreditch, products range from their staple graphic tee’s to 80’s inspired bobble hats, greeting cards, jewellery and posters.
Everyone these days wants to dress like athletes and rappers. What about dressing like doodlers? They’re good role models, too. My only question: can I pull off bright yellow? You can get a unisex sweatshirt here, a girl’s sized sweatshirt here and a hat here. Rock!
I noticed that one of the more popular search engine queries that leads people to Doodlesplatter is “RipCurl.” This is all due to the great Green Goon gear by Jon. Burgerplex just added the 2008 orange RipCurl jacket and pants to its online store. I’ve always thought this all-over doodle aesthetic worked brilliantly on these garments (and I’m typically a detractor from the “all-over print” look). Sorry shorties and skinnies, but the gear is available in size Large only. Even though I’m a distinct Medium myself, I’d buy this in a heartbeat if not for the fact that 1) I haven’t seen snow in 10 years and 2) I’m looking out the window to sunshine, birds chirping and probably high 60s. I have no idea what a lot of the following means, although “goggle pocket” and “stink sack” sure do sound fun. If you’re genteel, like me, you may prefer the company of the 105-page Mountainwear Winter 2008-2009 catalog “smothered” in doodles by Jon instead. The catalog comes signed for £15. Tech specs on the winterwear are:
The jacket - £149.00

OK, posse, I may have let you down by not getting you the info on this commemorative wooden jigsaw puzzle in time, but it’s not too late to get a commemorative T-shirt. The shirt features the Choowie character from the 2008 Rogue Audio album, Haphazard. The 9-color print is an edition of 60 white T-shirts for just over $20 (marked down from $70) from oki-ni. Size large only. Guess that makes up for this.
Jon’s presence in virtual reality now extends beyond the landscape of LittleBigPlanet and the art galleries of Second Life. Lockwood Publishing has inked a deal to full-on Burgerize your PlayStation Home. According to this brief post, “everything from glowsticks to sofas will be released on a monthly basis.” Lockwood has also teased me with promises of animated (moving) furniture. AlphaZone4 got pictures of some of the shirts and sneakers. Check it out after the jump!
Jon has two T-shirts in the newest collection from 2K by Gingham: Stax Trax in charcoal and TOP in red. Despite selling T-shirts by the likes of Barry McGee and Yoshimoto Nara, you might not have heard of 2K. But that’s how they want it:
2K, a small company whose name was bestowed by Experimental Jetset, is totally anti-mass marketing. 2K is for people who are bored with the market and merchandise that has been controlled by mega mass-marketing brands. We have become determined to introduce the best and most unique artworks and artists to the global youth culture network through t-shirts that we recognize as one of the most informative mediums. Instead of spreading the name 2K, we attempt to gain recognition by the people through our vision of presenting artistic uniquities by artists we have met and become fond of.
More than 100 million sharks are killed annually for their fins. Enter PangeaSeed, a Tokyo-based grassroots organization to raise awareness on the plight of sharks around the world. PangeaSeed’s mission is to “create an open dialogue with the global community on the need to preserve and protect sharks and their habitat.” They are doing this through volunteer activism, art, film, music and photography. Recently, they collaborated with several artists on a series of exclusive T-shirts.
Jon contributed the above shark design to the “No Fin No Future” range. The shirt is printed on American Apparel Summer T-shirt (100% Sheer Jersey Fine Cotton with Rib Neck) in “old school white” and comes in extra small, small and medium. (There’s one situation where short people get the advantage, and it’s gotta be a Japanese shark charity? Seems kinda odd though, like I’m waiting to see if the reverse of the shirt says, “No Fat Chicks!”) Anyhow, it’s available for $35 USD + $12 international shipping here. Proceeds go to saving sharks and keeping PangeaSeed running. (Because running is how they stay thin.)
