New Tees from Art In The Age

by Andy on October 12, 2009


Okay, so these tees aren’t ‘new’ as they were released at least a week ago now, but if I haven’t seen them, they’re new to me!

In typical Art In The Age style, they’re pretty odd design, but also pretty great, so it works out quite nicely. AITA tees are good quality, so whilst $34 is not particularly cheap for a tee, I can guarantee (but not actually guarantee) that the tee will last for a long time. If you’re the kind of person that enjoys reading press releases (though to be fair, I actually managed to read this one without dying of boredom unlike most of the releases I get sent, yes, that’s right, I have died several times whilst reading press releases), I’ve included the one that accompanies this line after the break, also, the pic above links to a much larger version in which you can see the designs much better.

2 new tees from Art In The Age

by Andy on April 11, 2009

Okay, my integrity is already probably questionable at best, but Art In the Age are the reason why I’m in Philadelphia, so it would be just downright rude for me not to post about the latest couple of tees that they’ve released.

I got one of their newer tees from the Spring line (I think) a few weeks ago, and the quality level has gone up from my review of the David Lee Nagel tee, and they didn’t exactly suck then. The Spring line is a bit thinner and softer than the average tee, at least the one I got was, so it’s perfect for the increasingly sunny days.

AITA: Win Six Hoodies!

by Andy on May 16, 2008

Art In the Age of Mechanical Reproduction Hoodie Giveaway

Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction are having a bit of a spring clean, and as part of that they’re giving away six of their fine, fine hoodies. I can’t decide whether its one person that will win all six of the hoodies, or if the six get distributed amongst a few winners, but either way there are some hoodies up for grabs. The you have until the end of the month to complete your entry.

AITA hoodie Competition



Damn, that was long title!

I’m currently wading through the quagmire that I call a ‘migraine hangover’, the day after a bad migraine where you feel like you’ve got a hangover but didn’t get to have all the drinking fun, so I’m going to hand the typing duties over to whoever it is that writes AITAs press releases.

The new Spring/Summer 2008 line from Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction highlights seven new artists creating original designs. One of these bright artists is Thom Lessner who designed the David Lee Nagel parody tee.

The very talented Mr. Lessner brings bipolar hero worship alive in this tribute to both Patrick Nagel and Diamond Dave in the David Lee Nagel tee. The tee is available for both men and women and includes the 80’s, 90’s and the naughty auties all in one!

Thom Lessner originated from Ohio and is now living and playing in Philadelphia. Thom’s parodied cartoon renditions of pop culture figures have become his signature style and his works have traveled through Philadelphia’s SPECTOR gallery, Los Angeles, New York, and abroad. Currently, Thom is an ardent skateboarder and a rock n’ roll star in the costume-clad band Sweatheart.

To be completely honest, I don’t think that the David Lee Nagel tee is the best of the bunch in terms of the latest releases from AITA, but they seem to be really excited about it so I might be missing something, but I guess its hardly a surprise that my favourite has gold foil on it.

If you’d like to get 20% off this tee (or any in their store), just use the coupon code FF2008 in the checkout from now until May 9th and you will receive that 20% discount. Thanks to Katrina for that coupon code.
