Basquiat - Early Favourite

I've long been a fan of graffiti and in turn Jean-Michel Basquiat. I saw a show of his in Venice 6 or 7 years ago and was instantly hooked. Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be in NY when the Brooklyn Museum put on an amazing display of his work. My girlfriend bought me this T-Shirt in the museum store. It is made by 2kshirts and they have a great collection of T's here . The cotton is nothing special but the colour is great, really lemony and the design works on a couple of levels. I guess most people think its some sort of statement about the wearer (hey at least my girlfriend thinks I'm ideal right!?) but you occasionally get a knowing look of respect from fellow graffiti/Basquiat enthusiats. Check out the site for a wide selection, my only beef is the excessive delivery charges they have, especially for international orders, I mean how much does a T-Shirt weigh right?


  • Hi there! I was just surfin blogs via the nav bar up top
    and found yours (like and adventure). You write better
    than many of the blogs I just went by, so have you
    ever thought about trying to make a little money
    blogging? Not tons, but I mean, just enough to
    pay for some other things like webhosting or a car
    payment, etc? Well, please do NOT confuse this with
    the cr*ppy comment spam I see all over the place, but
    I spotted a very cool free book on how to make money
    blogging blogging and blogging some more..!

    Hey, if you're gonna do it, you might as well get a LITTLE somethin' for it...!

    Take care, and keep up the great writing,
