i'm contributing to pop-culture rather than just parodying or riding its coattails.
late last year, threadless was contacted to take part in a project focusing on sesame street characters. the staff then brought it to the alumni group (printed threadless designers) to come up with an idea to make a collaborative piece that centered around what makes grover who he is. the idea of his traveling tales trunk came up and the group went to work on grover's stickers collected on his journey.
the full project was for "t-world magazine" an australian bi-yearly publication, and the magazine just came out today:
and here is an early scan of the magazine (if you squint, my name is creditted third from the bottom right)

if you want to get a better idea of the construction of this collab, please visit the flickr set. and an extra special thanks to ian leino for compiling everything and keeping us all in the loop!
last we had heard, t-world and the folks at children's television workshop were very interested in seeing this printed on (can you guess?) t-shirts! i would be very pleased to see that happen!
