Ace collaboraton with
noted artist J. Morrison.
By Blurt Staff
Every month of 2011 Xiu Xiu’s singer Jamie Stewart and
artist J. Morrison will collaborate on an ultra limited edition handmade
art t-shirt collection. The shirts will be available as a special 12 piece
yearlong subscription (which includes 13th subscription only bonus
shirt) or as individual shirts ordered per month.
Each month the shirts will commemorate a figure who has influenced the
artists. Part rock shirt and part art shirt, the shirts will
creatively honor the person’s name with a new illustration. This
month’s honoree is late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury (see above), on
long-sleeve black American Apparel.
Friends since 2003, J. Morrison and Xiu Xiu have a long
history of collaboration, having worked together on album covers,
performance art, haiku vs. sticker box sets and posters. J.
Morrison is a Brooklyn-based artist/designer who is widely
exhibited and has created artwork for four Xiu Xiu records.
