A thursday in June - Snapbacks, shirts, zines, prints, and stickers

It took longer than I planned, but the long awaited store update is here.

There's Deth P. Sun shirts, as well as some extremely limited zip hoodies as well. The image used is from two pages of his zine, When Night Comes. For me, these 2 pages spoke volumes in terms of storytelling, mood, technique, and overall DethPSun-ness. I immediately fell in love with these 2 pages, and I wanted to join them together, and try and create the darkest Deth shirt I could. The red on black made sense, and I'm extremely pleased how it came out. The zip hoody was a shout out to the zine, with both images separated while unzipped, and coming together zipped. Shirts are $25, zip hoodies are $45.

The logo snapback came out better than I could have imagined. The embroidered logo sits center on a black Yupoong classic snapback. They've got a green underbill, and are all tagged with thelastcat tags.
$30 each.

Aaron Jupin is a young artist out of Los Angeles. I first learned of him through the magic of Instagram. His art finds a middle ground between abstract and cartoon, blending new and old, and creating an entirely new artistic entity. I was able to get a few of his latest zine, which are all hand screenprinted. Behind the Cartoon Curtain is 10 pages of looking at the cartoon backgrounds we take for granted, through the artistic lens of Aaron Jupin. $15 each, edition of 30.

Akari Tachibana is a close friend and extremely talented young lady. While her main artistic field is fashion, her drawings and paintings that derive from her work are art pieces in themselves.
Three of her drawings have been made into screenprinted vinyl stickers. High quality, long lasting, and beautifully detailed, you can have all 3 for just $3.

Lastly, we've got some Zachary Sweet prints for sale. Zachary Sweet hails from the bay area, and is one of the hardest working artists out here. Constantly cranking out high quality art, his imagination knows no limits, and seems to flow freely and effortlessly from his head to his hand to the paper.
Four drawings of his have been made into giclee prints, and can now be purchased on the site.
Only $10 each, these offer a nice glimpse into the strange imagination of  Zachary, and reveal his humor, his talent, his technique, and his dedication to his art.

And thats today store update. There will be alot more coming in the next few weeks. Original art, prints, a special summer shirt, and in August, the annual TheLastCat event. More details coming.
