...presents: a side helping of awesome art in the form of a Tumblr. Enough phenomenal photography, opulent illustrations, ill installations, rad queers, visionary video art, magnificent new media, and miscellaneous ephemera to get you through the day.
My favorite part of this awesomely nutty trailer for Matthew Thurber’s brilliant new graphic novel, Infomaniacs, is Dan Nadel.
This came in the mail today. SO FUCKING GOOD! Highly recommend!!

Featuring an iconic original illustration by Jiraiya (児雷也), virtuoso of Japanese gay artwork and one of our favorite artists on the planet, the sweatshirt is an ode to gachimuchi (ガチムチ) love. Here’s what Jiraiya said about the two men on the sweatshirt, Asakichi (朝吉) and Seiji (清次):
These two guys have the same muscle mass, but I’d guess different body fat percentages.
In my opinion, they’re a perfect couple. But if they fight, their house will be partially destroyed.
Be one of the first 50 people to pre-order and receive a free card signed by Jiraiya! The sweatshirts are currently being manufactured in Los Angeles and orders will begin shipping at the end of November.
We’ll have the sample (modeled above by MASSIVE’s Anne Ishii) on display this weekend at Bent-Con. Come by and check it out!
