With an artistic style hovering somewhere between the thick lines of classic tattoos and the rhythmic patterns of old etchings -- and thankfully zero interest in running raffles at charity events -- The 50/50 Company is a husband/wife graphic design team out of West Chester that's releasing a new ltd-ed print and tee every month of 2011, as part of their attempt to "visually assault the general public", or what Snooki calls "leaving the house". Designs, screened onto soft, slim-cut shirts, include Grizzly, an interior view of a bear with a human skeleton in his belly; Beard, featuring a shirt-length tangle of facial hair designed to "fake people out while you grow the real one"; and Apple, a Genesis (the book, not the band) nod showcasing a cardigan-wearing horned dude offering an apple to a pensive Adam in loafers and khakis, which thankfully conceal his own forbidden fruit. The prints, done on fancy-boy French paper, include stuff like USA (a map with every state covered in a different geometric pattern of diamonds and damasks), Bear Bones (a grid of human bones hiding a picture of a bear), and Wharf Cats, depicting two gnarly felines and a sailor wearing Nikes, presumably the same ones favored by street-boating legend Earl "The Boat" Maniboat.
In addition to the monthly issues, the couple're doing a kick-ass mustachioed skull tee plus a series of small prints including the Hot Dogs series, featuring various canines screaming "HOT!", so you can be pretty sure they're not watching MTV.
