Check out the sweet new teal-colored Faces of Death tee. They feature a collection of recently dead celebrities ranging from cultural icons (Dick Clark, Phyllis Diller, Neil Armstrong, Mike Wallace) to screen legends (Ernest Borgnine, Sherman Helmsley, Andy Griffith, Ben Gazzara) to an inordinate number of musical greats (Whitney Houston, Etta James, Adam Yauch, Donna Summer, Levon Helm). Each drawing was rendered by one of my wonderfully talented and humorous friends, in styles ranging from painterly to primitive. The Faces of Death idea was originally realized in 1997 in a music 'zine my pals and I did called, Gank, and continued in 2002 on a t-shirt printed in my kitchen. 2009 was a banner year for celebrity deaths and demanded the reanimation of the franchise. 2012 is a tribute to some great lives lived. Special thanks to Justin at Crown Prints. Let's hope we can keep it going.
