Johnny Cupcakes 20th Anniversary Vintage Collection T-Shirts

It’s hard to believe that Johnny Cupcakes, one of The Blot’s favorite indie brands, is celebrating its 20th anniversary!  To celebrate this huge milestone, JC is rebaking some of their favorite (and their customer’s favorite) designs throughout 2021.  While most releases this year will have a special 20 year emblem printed on the back or sleeve, these occasional vintage JC t-shirts will also have this “VINTAGE RECIPE” hem print along with a “rebaked date”.  These small, clean details not only commemorate this epic journey Johnny Cupcakes has been on, but it also separates these rebakes from the original releases.

Johnny Cupcakes 20th Anniversary Vintage Collection T-Shirts

To kick off the 20 Years of Johnny Cupcakes Celebration, JC has released 3 vintage favorites: the Nintendo inspired “Powermitt 2.0”, the Hook homage “Capn Cook 2.0”, and the Karate Kid “Cobra Kakes 2.0”.  Johnny Cupcakes brought back some heavy hitters with these three pop culture homages!  What classic JC tees are you hoping are rereleased this year!?!

Death Folk Pop 2021 Painting Series by Mike Egan

Death Folk Pop 2021 Painting Series by Mike Egan

The Blot was thrilled to learn that artist Mike Egan would be revisiting his popular Death Folk Pop series of paintings in 2021!  As Mike explained, “As I’m getting older I’ve been reflecting back on my life and thinking about what has influenced me over the years. As a child of the 80s the one thing that keeps jumping out at me is pop culture. The toys I played with, the cartoons, video games, movies, etc. These characters have been great friends to me growing up.”

“This is why I wanted to continue my “Death Folk Pop” series in the new year. These paintings have become a way for me to say goodbye to a younger me. But also a way for me to look back at my life and remember the good times I had with friends bonding over our love for music, toys, etc.” – Mike Egan

The first two pieces in Egan’s newly ongoing Death Folk Pop series is the Marvel Comics inspired “Spider-Man Holding a Skull” and the Star Wars inspired “Death Star” featuring Darth Vader and Stormtroopers.  Each painting comes signed and titled on the back and is painted with acrylic on a cradled wood panel that measures 20”x20”.  Head over to MikeEganArt.com/shop to find out more or email Mike directly at 1977egan@gmail.com.  Mike has a list of characters he wants paint, but is also open to commissions or other ideas.
