San Francisco based art apparel and accessories line Upper Playground is releasing a collection of four t-shirts designed by artist Alex Pardee, who worked for bands – among others – The Used and In-Flames . Fresh off of opening a pop-up shop in San Francisco for his partner brand, Zerofriends, Alex has delivered four t-shirts – Hellraiser, Spider Ram, The Carpenters, and The Second Hugging – exclusively to Upper Playground that all stay true to Alex’s twisted animation style.
Alongside the release of the tees, Upper Playground and Alex Pardee are offering an opportunity to snag some limited edition giclee prints – the first 15 purchases of each of the four t-shirts in the Upper Playground online store will receive a corresponding giclee print of the design starting on 10/7/10. The giclee prints measure 5″ x 7″ and are printed with archival inks on velvet cotton rag paper – each print is extremely limited to a quantity of 15 and is hand-signed and numbered by Alex Pardee. All four t-shirts are available exclusively at the Upper Playground webstore and at Upper Playground retail locations.
