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.
After nearly two years, Jon makes a triumphant return to sprucing up your sofa. With doodled cushions last seen here, Jon is now working with ClickForArt on a new range of pillows. Lovingly titled Trample and Scrum, the cushions are approximately 46×46cm / 18×18″, constructed of super-soft faux suede and printed with non-toxic waterbased inks. The pillows are printed with a graphic on one side and a plain black back. They feature a feather-filled inner. Only 250 of each pillow have been printed. They will be delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Each cushion is currently available and costs £39 or ~ $60 at Burgerplex.
Oh, but that’s not all. I clicked over to ClickForArt and saw some exciting teasers. I’ve seen the quality of their merch through US stockist, Neon Monster, and it’s really quite impressive. From this ad I snagged off the CFA site, it looks like we may be seeing another pillow, a zippered (iPad?) case and an eye mask.
Here’s a bit about Click For Art from their website if you’re not yet familiar with their products: Read the rest of this entry »
I recently happened upon what has got to be one of the coolest charities on earth: Nottingham-based The Music Exchange, “a not-for-profit social enterprise providing quality music at an affordable price and run by homelessness charity, Framework.” The shop is staffed by “individuals who have experienced a period of unsettled life” and helps them “rebuild their confidence and self esteem whilst gaining invaluable retail experience”. How awesome is that? Not to mention this:
The Music Exchange supports local bands by providing them with an outlet to sell their merchandise and recordings commission free. The only agreement is that bands perform at one of The Music Exchange benefit nights held through out the year. These nights celebrate new and exciting music, with any profit going directly back into the shop. The Music Exchange is also currently working with bands to release vinyl singles on our own label.
Jon created two T-shirts (blue and magenta) to support the charity. You can get them at the shop for £15, or with a little international finagling. (BIG THANKS to Jason from The Music Exchange and Molly from The Neon Hive!) Don’t forget to become a fan of The Music Exchange on Facebook. They are located at 18 West End Arcade, Chapel Bar, Nottingham, NG1 6JP and open Tuesday through Saturday from 10AM to 4PM. Most albums and DVDs at The Music Exchange are priced at just £3.
You can also try to get one of the shirts in another creative way: Jon is currently running a contest on his website. Leave a comment HERE answering the question “What’s your favorite doodling music?” and you could win a shirt. Jon’s contest closes in 1 month on July 1st. While you’re there, scroll through the comments and get some ideas for new music.
A Jon Burgerman shirt without color is a rare shirt indeed. In fact, aside from 2007’s black on white On the Wall shirt, I’m hard-pressed to ID another completely monotone shirt in the artkive. Until now. Jon made this new all-over print “Grappin’ Money” shirt for La Painthouse, a division of the Paris-based The Dirty Cream. Definitely digging everything except the price, which is $65.25 USD before international shipping charges are applied. Ouch. If you’ve got the scratch, or maybe you’re located in France, check it out though. Cool shirt in S, M, L and XL. The La Painthouse line also features shirts by MCA, Reach and Shin Tanaka. FYI, entomology of “Grappin’”?
It’s probably too late to get this in time for Christmas, but if you haven’t decided what to get for the little people in your lives, Burgerplex just got some stock of the kids’ shirt Jon made as an exclusive for Yoyamart. The shirt is red with a monkey and Yoyamart logo and comes in child’s sizes for £15.00 here.
P.S. Check out the festive holiday makeover on Burgerplex:
With all the weird ripping off and ebaying going on lately, you’ve got to do your homework. So when I saw this purple shirt pop up on the Bay, I asked Jon if it was legit. Indeed! This “Nanny State” tee is so limited, it’s literally a 1/1. Featuring an interesting wraparound embroidered design, the shirt was unfortunately canceled circa 2004. Looks like someone got hold of a very rare sample. Congrats to the high bidder!
UPDATE: Jeps just sent in these other Nanny State shirts via a previous eBay auction!
Anxiety is back, not that it ever went away, really. At least for me, it didn’t. But for the rest of you: here’s a second chance at two great Anxietees. “I am Anxious” [previously blogged here] at right hails from Jon’s Anxiety Room show, and the Anxieteam shirt at left [previously blogged here] debuted at Brooklyn Bailout Burlesque. Both shirts are available in a variety of sizes for just $20 each at Factory Fresh. My anxiety requires me to offer some advice to any interested parties: The blue T-shirt is American Apparel and fits snugly. The black T-shirt is Gilden and fits averagely. If you sweat a lot, note that AA sleeves will be taut to your arms, while Gilden will leave your pits with breathing room. If your muscles are bulging, it doesn’t really matter, but then again, you probably don’t have too much anxiety, anyway. You’re welcome.
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 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.
Remember Big Lizard’s Big Idea from May? Truth be told, I still don’t fully grasp the concept of the overall project here, but it remains clear that Jon did the logo. And now that logo is on a T-shirt that you can buy for £15 including P+P here. It’s a lizard! Eating ice cream! Where else do you see this?*
