I’m all kinds of excited to share with you that an article I wrote for a really amazing online publication called Wear Your Voice Mag just got published today! It’s about supposed fashion faux pas women over 30 shouldn’t wear anymore, but the tone of the article pretty much says “fuck that, I do what I want.” I’m hoping to make it a regular series as I focus on different faux pas. For this one I wrote about graphic t-shirts.
I went to my first Comic Con in 2004, and around this time I was completely obsessed with the contemporary art scene and I found out that many of the artists I liked were going to be there! Seonna Hong was one of them, and while stalking her work on the interwebz, I came across a t-shirt company with mischievous little critters printed on each tee called Gama-Go (she had a few shirts w/her designs on them). I saw that they were going to be at the Con as well — from there on out, I was a fan. Every year I’d go to Comic-Con or WonderCon, I’d stop by their booth and tell them to just shut up and take my money and proceed to throw a few $20s at them and run away with cool stuff. <– OMG, I’m just kidding. I was totally civil.
It’s been really awesome seeing Gama-Go grow into what it’s become as they were all about t-shirts, hoodies, bags, and toys in the beginning, but the 11-year-old company have added housewares and quirky tech accessories into their delightful arsenal, and even have their own flagship store in San Francisco. And you should totally check that out if you ever happen to be in SOMA.
Anywho, they’re about to have their 9th Annual Sale which is usually held at the Rickshaw Stop in SF (I was lucky enough to go to it a couple years ago), but this time they’re taking the sale online that way err’body can get in on it!
It starts tomorrow (Nov.15) from 12-5 pm PST and everything will be 50% off! Their tees are usually $28, so you can get one for $14. CRAZYNESS!!!
I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite items in the store so you can all get a good feel of what Gama-Go has to offer.
