For years Nooka staff and friends of mine always looked forward to the souvenirs i brought back from trips to Japan. And the most beloved/coveted of these is always the fresh crop of Graniph t-shirts! I literally keep half a suitcase empty to make room for the 20 or so t shirts of theirs i would buy each trip. This being no secret, my dear friend Tomoyo in Tokyo made an introduction to the design team of Graniph and the project below was born! So, special thanks to Tomoyo, Yamada and Graniph for making this happen – i’m really very thrilled. I of course, will blog again when it gets closer to the release date and I have more samples to photograph. Verbage from the press release is below.

Nooka and Graniph are thrilled to release a new collaborative t-shirt, designed by matthew waldman this may, available in Japan only. The limited edition t-shirt features a star made of the nooka’s popular Creatures of the Night CAMO print. This exclusive design is printed on a heather grey shirt, with sizes ranging from extra small to large for men and women. Anyone who purchases this collab t-shirt can enter to win one of the 2 creatures of the Night watches. This campaign will hit graniph shop sometime in may 2010.

Graniph is a clothing design company based out of Shimokitazawa, Japan, that specializes in producing designer graphic T shirts. Using a unique design strategy, Graniph releases as many as 100 new designs every month featuring different artists and designers around the world.

The sights, sounds, and smells at a flea market are as much a part of the experience as sifting through the discarded possessions of strangers. Part of the appeal is the bizarre voyeurism it involves, gawking at things people once believed they needed but have since found no use for. And as any flea market veteran will attest, the experience is purest when the people you are buying from have just emptied their attic or garage, packed it into a car, and driven to a parking lot somewhere to sell it all. It’s a cleansing ritual — a hit-and-run way to quickly purge things that have outlived their usefulness.

Hello my lovely KDU friends!

I love behind the scenes, so I thought I’d share some photographs of in progress drawings as well as PS screencaps.

Some girl drawing…because girls are pretty.
