Etsy Finds: LUNCCHB0XX

I’m kind of in love with Etsy store LUNCCHB0XX and its devilishly funny, stylish and typography-driven shirts. In fact, the Tyra Mail tee actually made me LOL. Thomas Roche, the shop’s owner, has clear love for a lot of things I also have love for – Mean Girls, Burritos, Pizza, Satan…you know, the yoozh. He(…)

So, why wouldn’t a bunch of great artists want to commemorate some of the show’s most memorable moments by creating unique, limited silkscreened posters? The Breaking Gifs project commissioned artists to do just that and the prints(…)
