Thanks to everyone who came out to awesome con. Even the cat who fell asleep during the Hip-hop/comics panel. We’ll try harder to keep you awake next time, I promise (And I think @Depthzine will have video of the event for you and whomever else missed it).
Hey good peoples! Tomorrow at 5 I’ll be on Depth of Field’s hip-hop and comics panel. If anyone wants a book signed or something, I’ll be around from 4. Give me a holler here or on twitter if you plan to swing thru. Because if I don’t hear from anyone, I’ll probably just wander around outside. Real Talk.
I know pins are annoying, but if I didn’t use it, these ninja would slip right past your radar!
These are limited edition Ts from the Gratuitous Ninja MSGR collaboration. Each shirt is a wearable piece of art made from the finest cotton with sewn on tags. The graphics are hand pulled by Japanese craftsmen (possibly ninja). I only brought 30 of these shirts back to the states with me. MSGR is a renowned Japanese streetwear brand out of Fukuoka. They’ve been engineering highly functional and stylish clothes for the highly competitive Japanese streets for over ten years. Gratuitous Ninja, started as a comic by Ronald Wimberly. The graphic novelist who created Prince of Cats for Vertigo, Illustrated Sentences for Vertigo and adapted Something Wicked This Way Comes for Hill and Wang. Gratuitous Ninja follows Ninja who search for personal meaning in a world in which their amazing adaptations have become obsolete.
These shirts are the first to go up, but I’m planning on posting some other stuff.
