There’s a new exhibition honoring former wrestlers who have passed. I must say this was cool to see, because I remember when I a used to watch wrestling when I was a young child, even attending a WWF event at Madison Square Garden and enjoying some of the performances by some of the wrestlers depicted. Here’s some of the art from this exhibition.
The Dead Wrestlers Society Show opened on 21st September at Aspex Gallery, Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth – and runs until 30th October.

Johnny Cupcakes will be releasing their latest collaboration t-shirts. They released previous t-shirt collaborations with Warner Bros. and Hello, Kitty, but now it’s time for Nickelodeon. Johnny Cupcakes puts out a limited amount of t-shirts and they’re not reprinted, so if you like them and it brings back memories, I suggest your purchase them. If you can justify the $35.99 price tag that is great. The print is good for the most part, not the best, sometimes they use soft inks, but the shirts are soft. They have a hemtag and a mitten for the tag on the inside, which is smooth and won’t scratch the back of your neck.
3 new designs that are out on t-shirts and hoodies from 7th Ink. There’s an nifty laser engraved wooden box set that contains all the shirts, but for $95.00. The best piece out from 7th Ink’s latest collection is the “Midnight Owl” which has two different colorways, the blue colorway is limited to 10 pieces. I remember voicing my opinion when Matt asked publicly which of the 4 colorways worked best for this design. I think the outcome is very well done, with the owl being very eery and for lack of a better word haunting. It’s by far the best piece with the red or blue colored circular pattern in the background. The design that I am not a fan of at all is “Shakespeare’s Wolf”. That is released on a navy blue tee and navy blue hoodie. I believe he nailed it with the colors, but the illustration does not strike me as one that should be worn. He made a werewolf and added a skull with the quote from Hamlet to give it a theme, but it’s just not horrifying cool.
The tees are $25 while the hoodie is $45 and they come with a limited edition wooden engraved coin. 7th ink prints on American Apparel. Having owned t-shirts from them, the colors are nice and the ink doesn’t fade. The downside is that it’s a bit heavy and think if they printed with waterbase or discharge inks, it would make it top notch. The personal touch added to the package is great for brand loyalty, but I believe Matt does it with a sincere “thank you” to all those who purchased from his company. So, when you receive that note thanking you and hoping you enjoy that shirt, feel good that he cares about you, the customer. Overall, it’s a good release and from a brand that cares on providing you with something awesome to wear.
