For Holiday 2013, we worked with Cleon Peterson for our artist series. The collection is comprised of 3 shirts based on Peterson's paintings. In his anxiety-riddled world, violence is the status quo. His dystopian scenes evoke Thomas Hobbes' description of life as war between individuals: "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short. Deviance is simply the norm, and the displaced individual is forced to navigate this wicked world alone, finding hollow bits of pleasure and meaning in violence, sex, religion and drugs."

To go along with his collection we're releasing "Practice Of Masters", a web exclusive print from one of his graphics. It's an 18" x 18" screen print on 320 gram coventry rag, edition of 125. To shop the collection click on the image below.

We also visited Cleon in his studio for an in depth look on his fine art and career in design. Peterson describes his bedlam as "a gray world where law breakers and law enforcers are one in the same; a world where ethics have been abandoned in favor of personal entitlement."
