EFK or bust…


My Eat Fuck Kill 20th anniversary site goes live TOMORROW.

Not only have I created a bunch of new products based on the original EFK button, but I’ve also dug through boxes and boxes of old photos in my garage to find EFK-related images.

The pop-up shop part of the site will only be open until September 23 (and will be closed while I’m at Burning Man). Along the way, I will be adding new products to it, partially influenced by YOU. So, if you have something you want to see, I will try to make it happen.

P.S. This probably goes without saying but I’d love it if you checked out the site when it goes live. I’ve moved past a bunch of creative blocks to build it. TY!

Real things you can actually buy: yay!

Shark stroller buggy

Duh nuh: For babies, for cats, for dolls… this shark stroller by Maclaren has raised the bar on whomever or whatever needs to be pushed around ($250). Note: I hear there is a much cheaper version available at Target.

Querkles color-by-number book

Adios regular coloring books: I spotted these Querkles “puzzling color-by-number” coloring books at Michael’s recently and it really took me a minute to process what was going on with them. If you go to the comments section of this page, you can see how they are created too, dot-by-dot. So cool!
