This month we are working with four artists, with work spanning various forms of photography, illustrations, graphic design and skateboarding.
Here is some more info on each of our four artist's limited garment prints and their chosen charities.
Steven Eloiseau in aid of Justice for Breonna Taylor
Steven Eloiseau is a photographer and artist who has a gift for shooting editorials, portraits, commercial, and live events. Growing up at the intersection of culture, music, and entertainment in Brooklyn, NY, Steven loved art, especially galleries. However, he was skeptical that art would be considered a real job and instead, completed his master’s degree in Social Work.
After spending years helping his students express themselves in the pursuit of their happiness Steven discovered that the best way to do this was to lead by example. In 2017, he pursued his childhood dream full-time as his real job. His risk turned out to be his biggest reward after quickly being commissioned to photograph influential people (Will Smith, Mary J. Blige, Dapper Dan) and work with notable brands (Adidas, Complex, Tidal, ESPN). His approach to the craft is simple: Photography is not the picture, it’s the emotion.

ALL AVAILABLE UNTIL NOVEMBER 30th
A few words from Sodamilk about her artwork and choosen charity:
I like to bring light to the oddness in the world with a hint of cute. The characters you see are fragments of me, thoughts I've had or feelings I've felt. I often laugh as I draw my images, and that’s how I want other people to react. Even at the ‘gross’ stuff we intercept on a daily basis. It’s completely normal to think ‘I wonder if my tongue can reach my belly button?’ right? I laugh at myself, and you should too!
Thanks to Danny Cozens and his beautiful photography. Our first Finite Edition has now ended and we are placing the order for your t-shirts. Thanks to everyone that has supported Danny Cozens and his chosen charity of Huntington's Disease Association.
If you missed it here's some info behind Danny's choice of images and his connection to Huntington's Disease Association.
Our first Finite Edition is nearly over and with 8 days currently remaining on the campaign we are happy to say it's looking like it will be a success. We understand this is the beginning of the road and things take time to evolve but happily, we have sold a good amount of t-shirts to cover our own costs and contribute towards Danny Cozens's chosen charity of Huntington's Disease Association.
It's not over yet, there are still eight days remaining on the campaign, so please if you haven't already, take a look at his amazing images and support a fantastic photographer and his chosen charity.
Danny has kindly spoken about the photos he took while in South East Asia and also the reasoning behind his choice of charity. Check out the slides below for more info.
The mayor of San Juan is using fashion to make a statement to the world, and to President Donald Trump. In a recent video interview, Carmen Yulín Cruz wore a t-shirt in a fabulous act of owning the insult Trump had thrown at her previously. Donal Trump claimed the Democratic party told Ms Yulín Cruz to be “nasty” to him. Cruz reacted to this comment by wearing a t-shirt with the beautifully blunt word 'nasty' written across it.
Hitting back at the president, she told Univision while wearing the statement T-shirt: “What is really nasty is that anyone would turn their back on the Puerto Rican people.
Mayor Cruz has repeatedly attacked the federal response to Hurricane Maria's devastation of the US island territory, claiming it has been too slow, after millions were left without power and basic necessities.
Danny Cozens Finite Edition is now live. Head to our shop page to check out our collab with photographer Danny Cozens. Three images from his travels around South East Asia printed on the back of 100% Cotton, Organic T-Shirts for his chosen charity of Huntington's Disease Association.
