Crooked Monkey Gets Graphic
Oooh, after a long horrible technology drought, I'm back on the keys with lots of catching up to do. First off, must tell about the uber-hip fete Sunday night local T-shirt company Crooked Monkey hosted downtown in a top-secret warehouse location. The invite--a blank t-shirt with the details on the back that arrived with a bag of candy bananas--was the tip-off that the night would be unique. And it was. Company owner Micha Weinblatt treated a group of writers, bloggers, social butterflies, friends and family to vodka cocktails, DJ spun tunes, a much-loved photo booth and a little art-in-progress as we saw our white t-shirts folded into squares and hung into a blank canvas for an artist to make into a giant monkey graphic. Which leads nicely into the point of the evening--the launch of the Crooked Monkey graphic t-shirts, which we absolutely love. No words, just design. Edgy as always. Look for a Crooked Monkey to appear in the new Twilight movie, Eclipse. You can find the T-shirts at Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom, Fred Segal and Lord & Taylor too. Our local boy is hitting the big time. Hey Micha, when will we see Vincent Chase with the Monkey on his back??
Our tees are hung on the wall and made into a graphic design--a monkey, of course.
