Inspiration comes in many forms. Graffiti. Photography. T-shirts. T-shirts of t-shirts.
Let me explain.
Last week the Marc Jacobs store in New York City’s Soho neighborhood was hit by street artist Kidult.
Well…at least the ginormous graffiti said ‘art.’
That may sound like bright-side thinking. But Marc Jacobs went one step further.
The label created t-shirts bearing a photo of the abused storefront and is selling them for a whopping $689 exclusively at the Soho store.
I believe that’s known as ‘high art.’
Kidult has denounced Marc Jacobs as a ‘capitalist thieve’ on Twitter. And Tumblr Wilfry has decided to make some bucks off the very public altercation by selling their version for only $35.
And I’m telling the story. Of the artist who spray painted Marc Jacobs. Who made t-shirts of the graffiti. Who ticked off the artist. Who was copied again in a tee by Tumbler Wilfry.
And everyone made money but me.
Yep. Sounds like a blog.
