I had the very great opportunity to get a hold of some awesome t-shirts from apparel line Billionaire Mafia and put together this video review to show all you guys the quality of the shirts that they offer. This clothing line that was reviewed is from their "Graffiti" section which really correlates to the designer toy/art industry. All the shirts and other apparel available through Billionaire Mafia is of the highest quality and is what you would expect form a high-end clothing company. Another great thing about them is that they give back to the community, to quote "Borrowing from the old mafia method of organizing a union to serve the less fortunate, Billionaire mafia sells affordable products inspired from the streets in an effort to share the wealth with our community through charities that preserve the arts, improve existing programs and make the arts accessible to underprivileged neighborhoods. There is no crime in giving back." Take a sec and go browse all their goods, you won't be sorry. Big thanks to the Billionaire Mafia for hooking me up with all these shirts for the review!
Jesse Hernandez was on hand, but only to support his budding artist daughter, Eliana. I recently saw the Hernandez family at the 3D Canvas show in Oakland. Cheers to them for always supporting the art scene. And big ups to Ray and Joanne (plus Chris and Perez) of Dragatomi for a cool show idea. You should go visit them. While we all debated what kind of group portrait to take, Greta, perhaps inspired by the Miao and Mousubi toys and our recent trip to Japan, came up with the new iconic picture pose of 2010. So go to Sacto and ask Dragatomi to show you how to throw the Lucky Cat. Peace sign? So 2009. Be sure to CLICK THROUGH to see all the fantastic pieces that were in this show!
