Yes, you read that correctly! Threadless has teamed up with one of the most popular artists around on an all new Select t-shirt collection. For those of you unfamiliar with Threadless’ Select line, it is Threadless’ premium line of clothing and it now includes four designs by England’s own Olly Moss! Three of the four designs you will probably recognize, as they were recently released as screen prints at Olly’s solo show at Gallery 1988.
Kevin Smith’s debut film Clerks is one of The Blot’s all time favorite movies. There was a time I could quote the entire film line by line. I don’t get to watch the film as often as I’d like, but this is one of those events I’d kill to be at! Tonight Austin Books and Comics is flying in Brian “Dante” O'Halloran to be present at a screening of Clerks at the Blue Starlite Drive-In Theater in Austin, TX. To commemorate the event Austin Books and Comics commissioned Tim Doyle to design a print for the screening. Tim seriously did a great job with this print! It touches upon so many key moments of the film and includes some awesome Easter eggs, like the Death Star shaped moon in the top right hand corner.
Clerks by Tim Doyle is a 16”×26” signed and numbered screen print. The Standard Edition has a limited edition run size of 325 pieces, while the Black and White Variant with metallic silver inks has a limited edition run size of 125 pieces. If you're in Austin, head to the Starlite Drive-In for the screening where you can pick up a print and meet the clerk of all clerks, Brian O’Halloran! Like The Blot, if you don’t live in Austin you can email or call Austin Books and Comics and they’ll place you on a waiting list to purchase the print. Any prints not sold over the weekend will be sold on a first-come first-served basis.
