The world of comic books and fashion don't often collide -- it's not like Stan Lee's going to come out with some sort of "Lee jeans"...wait, that's brilliant. Is that taken? Bridging the comic-fashion divide like, right now: Spaghetti Kiss
Springing from the mind/pen of a Baltimore-based, Maryland Institute College of Art-schooled graphic novelist, SK's nerdy-cool line of t's and accessories're based almost wholly on their creator's comics, whose tales of apocalyptic lost species and "diabolical Kalosian Space Pirates" almost makes up for its disappointing lack of moonlit Lady and the Tramp make outs. Comically drawn (!) t-designs include "Robot Blues", with an indigo blue base and a silvery-white robotic creature hanging down from the neck line (curiously inspired by Edward Scissor Hands and Captain Eo), "Man Beast", with a horned, slouching skeleton, and the maroon "Bad to the Tusk", with a laid back elephant posting up on his Harley -- partially created as a tribute to the artist's father, who apparently needs to exercise, and must have really thick skin. Non-t fanboy fun includes the heather gray "Skullopus" hoodie, with tentacles hanging off a human skull, the just-made, screen-printed "Sea of Robots" messenger bag, and the available-for-purchase
comics graphic novels themselves, which range from his 90-page debut ("Birth") about rival alien colonies, to a space-faring adventure about a kid in "the deep cosmos of space...with his parents", which presumably becomes a nightmare when his mom finds the dirty magazines hidden under his space hammock
Ever penning, SK's also hooking up commissionable, full-sized poster illustrations; or choose from existing works like "Spring", with a bloody, sword-carrying samurai, or the thuggish police-portraying "Protect and Swerve" -- also what drivers'll do while straining to get a look at your Captain America-bottoms.
