They arrived!
I got my t‑shirt printing done at ooshirts.com. This is the second time I ordered from them and the quality and price are awesome.

The shirt is inspired by Rolando Politi’s Winter Flowers (the art recycled sculptured flowers along the front side of La Plaza). This is a new shirt for the 2021 season. This is a cooperation with Juriel Furukawa who made the design of flower shapes. The color is a deep purple described as “Blackberry” and these “day glow” colors are pink and electric green. They do look great on you!

All proceeds are donated to the new solar pavilion at La Plaza. Please let me know if you like to pick up a shirt at the garden

and for sale in my shop:

BOYZandGIRLS is a gender-fluid fashion brand inspired by the casual street style of New York City.

The original idea of BOYZandGIRLS was born 25 years ago during the height of New York City’s club culture. Our first promotional projects included artwork for the Limelight, the Tunnel, Twilo, and MTV.

A group of boys and girls started an office in a 1‑bedroom apartment in Loisaida, Lower East Side making a living out of design, art, and entertainment, promoting parties and events for clubs and concert venues taking over New York City, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Berlin —and shortly we became world-wide. BOYZandGIRLS co-created Flyer magazine, a printed monthly club guide with a circulation of 100.000 copies, conveniently pocket-sized and filled with concise information. The magazine took a look at life in and out of New York’s thriving club culture.

Today, 25 years later, BOYZandGIRLS is reborn into an official fashion brand supporting a gender-fluid, anarchistic, art-based lifestyle. From the beginning, BOYZandGIRLS embraced diversion, cultural acceptance, and tolerance, making the brand a statement to any generation before and after.

Currently, our pop-up shop is being displayed at the art gallery on 616 East 9th Street. Every Friday we host an open studio called “Factory Friday” from 5–9 pm. Check out our website at www.BOYZandGIRLS.com and follow us on www.instagram.com/boyzandgirlsdesign.

2022 Vernacular Typography photos that I posted on Instagram with the hashtags #vernaculartypography #nyctypographysafari #parsonstypesafari #vernaculartypographysafari #typesafari #typography #typographicsnyc #nyctypography #anselmdastner #vernacularphotography

It’s fascinating to see the vernacular of a neighborhood through its marks of ordinary everyday objects that tell an authentic story, and some are just plain beautiful.

This is the door-hack next-level post which you will see if you click through the pictures. Initially, there were four doors from Sara’s, now defunct, sniff, studio. that great old New York loft space on Allen Street. Two of the doors were cut shorter to fit the narrower space in the 9th street ‘railroad’ office. The rest pieces became the bottom shelves for the kitchen counter, and the 3rd door became the counter and top shelf. It’s super-low weight and low cost (the drywall anchors and the 2x3s cost about $30). I wouldn’t advise to table dance on it, but it’s very stable otherwise.

I am not sure how to attract customers to ring the bell to check out the shirts and carts, but maybe we need a sign and some more things to sell. 9th street is not about selling things, and I just want people to stop and look and, it’s just fantastic to have a street store, got to use. Let me know what you think, please. thank you!

Sidenote: the only one that rang the bell was telling me that Jesus is the son of god. I said, “Maybe, Amen and Namaste and Inshallah”; 9th street is a chapter in itself.

Happy and excited for this new chapter. I will share an office space with Andrew and Annette on 9ths street, which is my favorite block here anyway. I know so many people on this block because it’s next to the La Plaza community garden.

This new office has a front gallery space in which we will feature our favorite famous artist friends and maybe sell some t‑shirts as well.

I imagine that the backroom will be turned into a library tea room with a chaise longue and vines and tonnes of art books. The middle area has large surfaces to print and space for the computers to build web spaces, teach, publish fanzines, write that novel (or mine would be a reversed history of graphic design and anecdotes about typefaces).

Alright, here is the move: each a bundle of art, all perfectly wrapped up before the 2022 blizzard:
