!! OMG, a contest: WIN one of two limited edition T-shirts from artist Dean Sameshima !!

il_570xN.618225096_2g64.jpg
We’re giving away TWO uber-sexy t-shirts from artist Dean Sameshima!
A bit about Dean from the Deano, himself:

I am an artist based in Berlin, Germany.
This a shop inspired by my Tumblr page: http://cruiseorbecruised.tumblr.com/ which is a visual diary of my inspirations in visual art, queer histories, gay underground subcultures of the past as well as my heroes in literature, performance, music, film, etc…

I am a huge fan of T-shirts, I wear them ALL THE TIME, even in the winter. They communicate our personal interests, politics, desires, loves and obsessions. When I see someone wearing a shirt from a band I love, I automatically feel a sense of connection with that person. It’s a cool feeling.

I’m inspired by vintage concert shirts (especially bootlegs) as well as Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren‘s Seditionaries shirts from the 70’s and their use of images appropriated from various subcultures. My shirts are like the concert/tour T-shirts for the various films, artists and authors I admire. I will be producing more and more editions and hope you all will enjoy them on the walls of your bedrooms, toilets, hallways, closets…where ever you want to add a bit of subtle (and
not-so-subtle) QUEERNESS!

THE CONTEST: Which movie is the image printed on the shirt (above) from, and why was it awesome?
THE RULES: Please email your contest answer/entry along with your full name, North American shipping address, and telephone number, and SIZE (Small, Medium, or Large) to [email protected]. All personal information is collected in accordance with our privacy policy.
Our favourite 2 responses submitted will win one of two t-shirts! (We also highly recommend checking out Dean’s Tumblr, AND if you just can’t wait to win a contest, then you can purchase a variety of them today over at Dean’s Etsy store.)

!! OMG, a novel idea: Cory Arcangel’s new book is just people Tweeting that they’re ‘working on their novel’ !!

working-on-my-novel-1.jpg
YAASSS! Artist Cory Arcangel (and man who helped to recently dig up some long-lost Warhol art on some old floppy disks) has a new book out! Working On My Novel is a carefully-curated collection of Tweets, all of which contain the phrase “working on my novel.”

“[The book] is about the act of creation and the gap between the different ways we express ourselves today. Exploring the extremes of making art, from satisfaction and even euphoria to those days or nights when nothing will come, it’s the story of what it means to be a creative person, and why we keep on trying.”

Procrastination is suiting content for a great coffee table book, and what better source to draw from than from Twitter?? You can pre-order the the book HERE.

!! OMG, the most magical place on Earth: José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros remixes classic horror icons and Disney together for new exhibition !!

1014401_392186987552973_1557897266_n.jpg
Artist José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros‘ new show DisHollywood combines classic movie icons and Disney fairytales and reimagines them in a dark (and likely more realistic way) that questions their fairy-tale endings. From José‘s gallery:

DisHollywood is a barometer for measuring our tolerance and acceptance levels; a new way of observing the “happy ending” that trumpets the time of equality is now. In contrast to the baroque fantasy implied by the original, idealized presentaion of these characters, a new context of social vulnerability shows the darker side of our contemporary society.

Check out the rest of the painting after the jump! Which one’s your favourite?

!! OMG, start your (nuclear) engines: Artist Saint Hoax drag-ifys some of the World’s most infamous leaders !!

drag6.gif
Artist Saint Hoax has released his controversial “War Drags You Out” series featuring some dragged out personas for some of the world most terrifying, powerful, or infamous men! Saint Hoax explains:

The recipe for an iconic queen:
1- Flamboyant name
2- Fierce persona
3- Defining outfits
4- Personalized hairdo
5- A trademark feature
6- One hell of a PR team

Just like drag queens, political leaders are expected to entertain, perform and occasionally lip-sync a public speech. But unlike drag queens, the fame hungry leaders don’t know when to take their costumes off.

Hitleria Hysteria, Madame O’ Sane, Vladdy Pushin, Baricka O’Bisha, Ossie B, Georgia Buchette, Queen Abby and the rest of the queens are waiting after the jump! How do you feel about these?
