Some of the wonderful folks at Mondotees/Alamo Drafthouse have come together for a brand new art-related venture, Nakatomi Inc. They have designed some super rad shirts, but the most exciting thing is their invitational poster/t-shirt project. Here’s the way it works: For $50, you get a limited edition t-shirt and matching screenprinted or letterpress art print. The first artists on board are Daniel Danger, Todd Slater, and Kevin Munoz, but Rob Jones, Tyler Stout, Jermaine Rogers, Paul Pope, and a ton of others have designs on the way. The packages are available for one month, or until 250 pieces are sold, whichever comes first. Here is a brief mission statement from the company:
“Like a gargantuan reptilian beast looming over Tokyo, NAKATOMI INC towers on the threshold of a Brave New Era in nerd fashion. It is our solemn oath to meticulously select only the most white-hot shards of ’80s, ’90s and future culture in assembling our high-quality assault against drab modern apparel. A composite Voltron of boundless geek obsession, we represent multiple lifetimes of pop-culture mania and lowbrow art taken over the max and directly into the hands of nerds, goofs and the common man. All our products are created with the best and most durable components while our friendly and responsible staff are available at all times to answer any questions, but make no mistake…NAKATOMI is a rabid, Saturday Morning sugar cereal-fueled permanent weapon in the war against adulthood. RAGING ! ! ! ! ! !”
This should be an exciting new venture for sure, there needs to be more companies getting creative and putting out awesome art products like this. To check out the first three designs by Daniel Danger, Todd Slater, and Kevin Munoz, and to keep up on what they are doing, visit NakatomiInc.com.
