The Provincetown T-Shirt Collection:
Provincetown always has a mysterious way of popping up into my work.
I first visited "P-Town" over 20 years ago and it was an awakening. I never knew I could feel so free being myself.
I wanted these shirts to express that sense of freedom and I knew there was one guy who could bring it to all to life.
Acclaimed artist Andrew Sedgwick Guth and I tapped into our shared love of Provincetown to create this set of tees.
We were inspired by real life places & things like biking to the dunes, ferry rides from Boston & of course, Spiritus Pizza!
But this is also a celebration of the joy & freedom that made us fall in love with this magical place.
These Were Made by Hand:
These graphics were made by the hands of Andrew Sedgwick Guth. The tees are Made in USA and each piece is hand signed and numbered by the artist.
First, he carved out the artwork - that's right, he CARVED out the artwork with his own hands! From the carving, a traditional 'block print' is created.
The block print is used to make the screens for printing on the actual tees.
No short cuts here, this is an old-school technique that preserves a more 'human' & 'natural' distressing, a hallmark of Andrew's work.
Lastly, he personally pulls the ink on to each tee shirt to create the finished item.
No two shirts will be exactly the same - we think it is cooler that way.
PIZZA FETISH: I swear, the first thing I think of when I think of Provincetown is sitting at Spiritus Pizza at 2am, having a slice and watching everyone walk by. It is a real -life theater. I wanted something a little edgier than a slice of pizza on shirt, though. I think we came up with something kind of f*cking awesome. I think 20 people have already asked me where I got mine. Up 'til now, it has been my own little secret.
