Get Sticky with Gluekit

Boat!

Gluekit had this idea over the summer, being that we’re big fans of new music and the different services, blogs, and media outlets that help tune us into new things. Funny as it sounds, we’ve found a couple of keepers on Spin’s Artist of the Day series. We started thinking how it might be fun to design one-off shirts that feature our favorite bands– participating in art-based fan culture, and spreading knowledge of the music we love. Proceeds could benefit Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts or Americans for the Arts or [fill in the blank for some good-doing non-profit]. Something that sustains a civic culture the supports or aids artists. [This is all still something we’re rolling around in our heads.] We dubbed the nascent project “Positive Spin.”

Incidentally, we also thought making band-inspired shirt would be a great way to play with quick’n’dirty clothing production and try to bring in some play with textiles and form. So– without further adieu– here’s our first shirt, for a band that’s just so awesome: BOAT. We’re keeping this one– and probably won’t be launching “Positive Spin” anytime soon. But for the time being, we’ll continue experimenting within the sketchy lines we’ve set up.

Gluekit really hopes BOAT plays the East Coast someday soon!
