New Stuff: Art Prints! Increased Fame!

I actually had a really cramazing Thirsty Thursday post lined up for today, but it’ll have to wait until next week — I have an exciting announcement to make (well, two actually):

First up: my Diver Riding Shark shirt was worn by Jimmy on FOX’s Raising Hope this week!

The full video won’t be up on Hulu until next week, but rest assured, it will be embedded ASAP (provided Congress doesn’t destroy the internet between now and then). There’s something vaguely satisfying about Jimmy passing his GED test while wearing one of my tees…

But even MORE exciting than this teeny-tiny step up the ladder of fame is the addition of ART PRINTS to the Ex-Boyfriend product line! While a limited selection to start, I hope to be able to add to the collection of available art prints in the future. Each 11″ x 17″ print is digitally reproduced on 100 lb. glossy cover stock, ships for FREE in sturdy cardboard shipping tubes, and is guaranteed to get you mad high-fives & fist-bumps at your next dinner party (if your dinner parties are typically held at the Jersey Shore. And if they are, the high-fives might be for your delicious rum-ham.)

New Stuff: Pterodactyl Springs Summer Camp!

I realized that while I mentioned this on Twitter and Facebook, I never actually got around to introducing it here on the blog: my new Pterodactyl Springs Summer Camp t-shirt!

What better way to relive the halcyon days of your youth than by throwing on this distressed vintage-looking tee from the Pterodactyl Springs Summer Camp? Guaranteed to evoke fond memories of warm summer nights spent listening to the lake lap against the shore as the flap of dinosaur wings passed by overhead!

Label News: Everything Old Is New Again

Wow, sorry for the radio internet-silence; the holidays can do that to a guy. And by “that” I mean “crawl into a cave for weeks at a time with nothing to keep him company but his wife, cats, and copious amounts of fattening food and booze”.

Speaking of cats, remember this cutie from our last chat? Well, she just had her surgery on Monday morning and is recuperating nicely in the pillow & blanket nest I made for her in the bathroom. I felt bad sending her under the knife without a name, so she’s officially Penelope, at least as far as the state of Maryland is concerned. More pix will be forthcoming.

Anyway, let me show you what I’ve been working on. First up is a new design documenting the on-going exploits of Fuzz Aldrin, first kitty in space!

Being the enterprising sort, Fuzz decided to make a little scratch doing what he does best, not unlike his bud Victorious Yeti did with his alpine resort. I present to you Fuzz Aldrin’s Astro Camp:

Cyber-high-five to Yuki Shichi, a fan who helped critique an early version of this design months ago and really got me pointed in the right direction. She rocks!

Another cyber-high-five to Victoria Vu, who loved the skull & cross-carrots on the Pirate Bunny jolly roger so much that she asked that it be made into its own shirt. Done and done!

Finally, as I’ve already done with my I’d Rather Be Making Out & Peanut Butter & Jelly Lovers tees, I recently re-designed my Now Accepting Boyfriend Applications and Now Accepting Girlfriend Applications tees. I think they’re way better now:

 

Well, that’s it for now. I should have some new stuff up in the next couple weeks. Tomorrow we resume our normal diet of booze, weirdness, Japanese robots, and hilarity!

New Drawings: Traveling In Wonderland Gets A Lot More Efficient, and Red Riding Hood Takes A Shine to Bad Boys

For your consideration: two piping-hot, fresh off the sketch-pad designs to kick-start your holiday wish lists!

First up is my transit map homage to the world of Lewis Carroll, helping you get around Wonderland & Looking-Glass Land with ease!

Next we have this pretty rad romantic interlude between Red Riding Hood and The Big, Bad Wolf called “Star Crossed”:

As usual, both designs are available in men’s and ladies’ sizes on a variety of styles. If you like ’em, share ’em! Visit the Facebook page and let me know what you think:)

Fun New Doo-Hickey: Ex-Boyfriend Spotting Around the World

Filed under: Label News — ex-boyfriend @ 6:34 pm

We added this fun new feature last night to our website: (click to play with the map)
Ex-Boyfriend Map

It’s an interactive map that reflects all the places our fans live. Each time we ship items to a new destination it gets a pin on our map. Check and see if your town’s there yet? If not, you can get it added when you place your first order.

Big ups to all our friends in Chicago, Toronto, London, LA, Washington and NYC. You guys live in the Ex-Boyfriendliest cities in the world. (AKA the cities where we’ve sent the most stuff :))

Hoodies Have Arrived

hoodies

We know tees aren’t the perfect thing to wear all year round. We can’t all live in Miami and So Cal. To make sure our fans in cooler climates stay warm all winter, we’ve introduced a line of fleece hooded sweatshirts. They’re available in a variety of colors for both men and women. Order one today and snuggle up!

New Funny Cat T-Shirts: Meet the Kitties

Filed under: Behind the Scenes,Label News,New Drawings — Tags: , , , , , — ex-boyfriend @ 6:05 pm

Cats are awesome, therefore I am in the process of designing more kitty themed apparel. Unfortunately, clothing featuring kitties is often the look favored by frumpy, suburban housewives. I’m working cat apparel of a different ilk. So meet the new kitties:

Fuzz Aldrin is a space kitty, exploring the depths of the cosmos with great curiosity. Fuzz has made several missions to mars, the moon and Endor (home of cute space counterparts the Ewoks).

Mr. Meowgi is a wise old ninja, taking on the bad guys with his fast flying paws of justice.

Fuzz Aldrin and Mr. Meowgi are part of a series of upcoming kitty characters to make their way onto clothing and accessories available from Ex-Boyfriend.

Speaking of kitties, apparently the Japanese are also crazy for them. Of course who can resist that sort of cute?
