Despite your best efforts, sometimes you bring home things on a whim that just don't belong around your pad, like that life-sized cardboard cut out of Mr. Belvedere, or herpes. Giving you art that belongs, Nate Duval.
From a Western Mass native, ND's got an extensive collection of things to better everything from your crib and personal style to your polite written correspondences, with hand-illustrated gig posters, art prints, greeting cards, and graphic tees, all of which draw from an eclectic range of topics, like Norman Rockwell, but the exact opposite. Rock posters and decorative prints include the vintage-inspired Gomez, a red/blue/purple scene from an old drive-in restaurant billing the band's recent summer show in Austin; the Delectable Duo, a pair of Magritte-styled prints that feature two 19th century, Spanish-esq portraits of a man and a woman with mushroom and cactus heads; and a limited edition, hand-drawn psychedelic three-color "Flight of the Conchords" screenprint from their April performance at Agganis, a venue whose ridiculous bathroom lines almost necessitated you Kiweeing in your pants. ND's also got an animal-heavy line of tees like the Squidcyle, a soft slate blue jersey tee w/ a two-colored handprint image of an octopus riding a bicycle; the Kelly green Gorilla Runner 2, a rib-collared short sleeve silkscreened with the picture of a gorilla-masked runner crossing the finish line; and the olive Mr. Starfish, featuring a three-color print beige starfish donning a pair of cowboy boots, no doubt leftover from his cameo appearance in Brokeback Ocean.
He also sells a small collection of birthday/congrats greeting cards, and prints like the two color (metallic gold and brown) Hooray Coffee, picturing a smiling, arm-raised cup of coffee; plus there's a bargain bin where you can pick up some sweet deals on things like a "Business Cat" art print, which features a cat masquerading as a businessman, and reminds you a lot of Kandy, when she masqueraded as "someone who wasn't going to give you goddamn herpes".
