Bleepin’ Golden

07 July 2010



The great people over at Thirst are kind of obsessed with Chicago’s former governor. He’s like a train wreck you can’t look away from, or that obnoxiously cute kitten video with a billion hits. So they designed two shirts in his honor. Bleepin’ Golden commemorates these famous words “I’ve got this thing, and it’s bleepin’ golden,” and Blagito features the mugshot of Chicago’s bandit-of-the-moment – Blago in bandit wear.

They’ll be sold for $20 a piece for a limited time on thirstore
No matter how the trial turns out, we’ll always have Blago’s memorable words.

2010 Grads : Batch 1

07 July 2010

A few weeks back we reached out to students from all over the world, who are graduating this year, and asked them to submit their work to our new 2010 Grads feature. We had a huge response and have been really impressed with the quality of work. Thanks to everyone who answered our call.

We’ve decided to release the Grads in batches over the next couple of months, culminating in an extended feature at the end of the Summer. Till then, please feel free to get in touch with any of these guys/gals for work placements or job offers. The doors are still open to new submissions (for a limited time) – if interested, please send your name, school, url, graduation date, and a short bio to submit [at]
