…Ugly money can be beautiful?

Since 1998, Johnny Bitter, owner of Johnny Burrito, has been collecting funny money that has come across his counter from “unsung artists, poets, philosophers & pundits” who use national currency as a medium. His collection includes bills that have been drawn on, written on, mutilated, stamped, and even the occasional coin. I wonder how much some of this art would cost.

…Meat and Potatoes make good shirts?

Meat and Potatoes

Meat and Potatoes is “a collaboration of artists with freshly conceived, tasty ideas, packaged in very limited numbers”. Each limited edition t-shirt is hand silkscreened, then packaged in a meat tray with a numbered 6” x 8” print of the artwork included. Plus, a portion of the sales are donated to various food charities, because if you’re getting your fill of Meat and Potatoes, so should those less fortunate. Their designs are definitely cool and unique, and their packaging can’t be beat, so add a little Meat and Potatoes to your fashion menu the next time you order.
