The other week I was at a friend's birthday bash at Dig a Pony, where my friend Lauren Black (of Brick & Black) received her first t-shirt from Tyler Short: An amazing Michael Jackson tribute, with aviators and all. I knew I had to find out more. Short is an illustrator who uses sharpies and his incredible drawing skills to make one-of-a-kind custom tees. He’s made shirts of icons ranging from Kate Moss to Biggie, Jimi Hendrix, Iggy Pop, and many more. Short gladly takes custom orders, and is currently hooking me up with my very own Mary-Kate Olsen tee (swoon). Rumor has it he’s teaming up with Solestruck for a pop-up shop this summer, but in the meantime you check out his site here, and order up the tee of your dreams.
