Stumbled upon this cool little project called Yellow Bird Project which, in a nut shell, matches great indie artists with charities by having them design illustrations for T-shirts to sell. What's even better is that YBP tapped pretty much every artists I listen to, and convinced them to design sometimes whimsical sometimes political tees for men and women. I had to do a double take when I saw Yann Tiersen was one of the artist who loaned his skills to the project. I became a little obsessed with him and his music when I found out he composed the songs for Amelie! Proceeds from each T-shirt go to help support the charity of the respective designing artist. And yes. One purchase officially crosses you over to hipsterdom.
Participating artists include:
