Gwen Stefani via Tim Armstrong!
You know, Tim Armstrong, the lead singer of Rancid? Also in The Transplants? Operation Ivy? Apparently, he took that photo of Gwen. And then he transformed it into a stencil and now two hundred 20x24 screen printed posters are available at Poster Child Prints for $50, signed and numbered! He also made fifty "Artist Edition" prints, each unique and handpainted by Armstrong, available for $150. On the site you can see that he even scrawled the lyrics to Rancid's "Ruby Soho" on one of the Gwen Artist Editions. This is Armstrong's first ever release of artwork, though he'll be releasing more in the near future. I honestly had no idea he was making art.
You all know I keep my ear to the ground when it comes to Gwen news, so, I thought this was particularly interesting. (More interesting, actually, than pregnancy rumors...which she's denying, by the way.) I am acquiring my own print, and will prominently display my all-time girl crush proudly in the apartment! Plus, a first-ever artwork from Tim Armstrong. Pretty, pretty sweet.
Poster Child Prints also has a pretty nice artist roster to peruse - Jim Houser, Tim Biskup, Mike Giant, Taki 187, Love Me, Dalek, Friends with You, and more. I've added their blog to my feed to keep up with it all, too.
Oh, by the way, they went on sale this morning at 9am PDT! Better get on it if you like them!
Anybody else going to get one? Think it's a pretty stellar homage to a stellar woman? I do!
