{     BEAUTIFUL/DECAY VS. SKWAK Shirt     }    

http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/04/beautifulskwak-thumb.jpg I have not wanted a t-shirt this badly since I was at the mall beggin' my moms for a G'n'R Appetite tee back, back in the day, day. Beautiful/Decay hit it with this one, for reals. Beautiful/Decay has been pushing and promoting emerging artists through it's magazine since it first began, and because of their honest efforts and fresh tastes, they have grown from a small street zine to a full-on, internationally-known, officially badass art magazine flown all over the world and sold everywhere but Walmart - thank Jesus. So now, building on their success, they've gone and started making t-shirts as well and damned if they didn't go and make some of the freshest tees you're going to buy this year. The tee line features artwork done only by artists that have been featured in Beautiful/Decay Magazine, uses mega-high quality 100% cotton, is 36 Needle Knit (whatever that means), and has custom cut bodies that will make all you hipsters look super-hottt whether you're snorting blow off a camera lens in a discotheque or perusing a menu in a breakfast spot called 'Eggs' situated in the basement of a Russian flower shop. So, all the shirts are rad, but let's talk about the one I l-o-v-e. It's done by Skwak and he's just straight bonkers. As Beautiful/Decay puts it: "Skwak expresses his artistic thoughts and views on reality through his conjured up Koogai. Both in flat illustration and plush forms, the Koogai are the personification of disgust! By vomiting they symbolize the world that is now full of stupidity. They are polluted and polluting monsters. By feeding themselves with our pollution, they transform it, then vomit poison, which infects towns, seas and, mankind." Skwak says, “I only want to tell people [through] the Koogai that pollution, human stupidity, and the lack of tolerance is scaring me." Yeah, that's good. He's got a good head on his shoulders. And lucky us, his being scared looks really fucking nice on a t-shirt.
