Hope this finds you well and turkey lurkey'd from the weekend.

If there's one thing we adore, it's our brothers from the great Light In The Attic Records, so it is a true pleasure to present our third tee shirt collaboration with those cats paying homage to: The Louvin Brothers, Satan Is Real! FINALLY! I tell you WHAT, it is pret-ty fun to design and scribble a tee shirt with such a ballsy statement + representing country music's finest white folk gospel'd opus (not to mention the BEST album cover ever). This is a project close to our hearts as well because our dear bud the great Jessica Hundley wrote the liner notes for the record which is now finally available to nab HERE.

Special thanks to Aja, Fred, and R + F chief photographer Hal Horowitz for the photos.

ALSO and as well..we here at R + F are feeling a lil jingle jangly and want to extend our gratitude for making this one of our most successful years to date. From now through December, buy 2 shirtz, type in HOLIDAZE upon checkout, and shipping is f.r.e.e. Beefhearts and Stevies back in sssstock. xo

"Mythical rock goddess and avowed sister of the moon, Stevie Nicks is the legend that just keeps on giving." -T. Cole Rachel for Dossier Issue 8

It is an honor to be collaborating with the great and important people at Dossier Journal on a limited edition tee shirt celebrating their cover star, the living legend: Stevie Nicks. I originally made the water color illustration for the latest Issue 8, which is out NOW on news stands and the vibes seemed fitting to take the tribute even further. It was a true pleasure creating this piece, listening to "Sable on Blonde" probably a hundred times, swaying and scribbling Stevie and her iconic style symbols that forever inspire. Well thank the stars, the sweet shirts are finally available here and via Dossier's site! Big thanks to refinery29 for breaking the gnus HERE.

The Dossier/Rotter and Friends co-branded shirts are limited edition, three color purple ink printed on power washed super soft pewter tees.

08/29: A Foxtail'd Toast

Category: Rotter and Friends | Posted by: Team | Add comment
FRIENDS.

Hope this finds you well and if on the East Coast: SAFE. Just getting back here from 2 days of major 'caned madness. Stuck upstate in the Catskills with no electricity, cell phone, internets, and my trusty HAIR IRON. That said, with cookie monster eyes aside, we were there for a special reason-to celebrate one of my favorite couples, Margot (Foxtails Dj partner in crime) and Matt as they wed amongst a serious fantasy sky right before the storm conquered. The officiant had remarked about how we must take hard rain as a symbol of preparing the earth for new beginnings, adventures, and hope-a cleansed palette if you will. What a great totem for love and starting a new season with wide eyes. I wish that upon all you readers-deep breaths, new mornin' cup of coffee, big horizons= the reset button..THAT said, I wanted to share the Frank Stella inspired invite I created for the wedding which was also made into little bubble bottles which we blew rainbow blessings onto the happy couple with as they waltzed off the aisle to BADFINGER-duh. ;)

Can't talk about this affair without mentioning these. God bless Margot and her 70's glitter Louboutins...

I know, we have not been the most righteous on wisdom lately, but I am updating frequent vibes daily on our lil' TWITTER, follow us, eh?
Big smiles and congrats to M + M.

“Jimmy Ford is the baddest white man on the planet.” -Sly Stone

Tears! Super proud to finally release the Jim Ford tees we have collaborated on with the dear people at Light In The Attic records. As previously ranted, this record means so much to my heart. It is bad ass, wide eyed, foot stomping country boot cuts of the best order and I highly recommend owning this beautiful piece of vinyl in your collection. Check out the below and nothing but gratitude vibes to our wonder buds/models Ivan, Alison and my chief photographer of life, Mr. Hal Horowitz. The shirts are available as a combo with vinyl here and at LITA and as I'm sure you'll notice, it comes at a sweet low price.

It is a true honor to present a sneak peek of this tee shirt illustration I did of country boot cut king Jim Ford in collaboration with our dear friends at Light In The Attic records, celebrating their re-release of 1969's Harlan County coming out July 26th.
jim ford
I have no words to express how major this record is. The entire ride is an essential collection of sassafrass'd country funk boogie beautiful jams. Anytime, no matter what city, what hour my friends and I play the song "I'm Gonna Make Her Love Me", the space is a sweatbox of dancing and denim make out sessions in minutes.


We will send a reminder on this magical release soon-hope you enjoy the illo which will be available in 2-colorways here at the shop and as a vinyl tee combo. Stay Tuned! Gimme that dandy candy!

06/27: Harry The Hipster

Category: Rotter and Friends | Posted by: Team | Add comment
FRIENDS.

Hope this finds you well. Just started workin' on my first comic book (woah island) so sorry for the delay in posting-it's been quite the month. Wanted to share my man Harry The Hipster from the show "Sam and Friends", Jim Henson's first Muppet show that ran on public access in DC in the early 1950's (and where the R + F name was harped from). HARRY is a major influence for the narrator/host character of the comic, bearing a strong laid back attitude with a major umbrella of c.o.o.l.-I'm puttin' in more of a late 70's night vibe to the mix, like this rad Larry Wallis jam below-can't wait to share more soon. ALSO, we have a sweet giveaway with our friends at Cat Party later this week, so stay tuned for more detailz.

So stoked to share this special project I recently worked on for the great KURT VILE, whose music has been a big influence and one of the few musicians of recent that bestows major power with his intimate jams. It's a real pleasure to illustrate a design for this guy-especially based on studio images that our bud Shawn Brackbill shot and featuring smokin' "O" rings, harped from 1977's Rankin/Bass cartoon "The Hobbit". I grew up in a house where my parents had commissioned a huge mirror with Bilbo Baggins and company painted on it- which explains..a lot.

This design will be featured on tee shirts AND tote bags (yes!) and available on all tour dates/ festivals Kurt will be performing on starting in July with Thurston Moore and also on his website. For tour dates click HERE pick up the gnu album Smoke Ring For My Halo HERE plus the great Mexican Summer release HERE.
