Fur Face Boy, local clothing brand and graphic designer from Grand Prairie, has been designing unique t-shirts since last year. I became aware of Fur Face Boy’s existence shortly after meeting the Sore Losers and meeting some of the people behind Unkommon Kolor; I knew there had to be other local designers passing under my radar. I was right.
Late last week, after tweeting about my intentions to pick up one of Fur Face Boy’s Series III shirts (specifically the FFB Fancy) I received a DM response with a coupon code good for 15% off my order. Using the code sent over by Fur Face Boy I bought a shirt and then waited for Monday to roll around for it to arrive.
Opening the package Monday afternoon I found the shirt I ordered along with a second shirt and a note written on the bottom of the PayPal receipt. What was this? Threw in an extra shirt for the hell of it? That’s good enough reason for me! When was the last time you bought something and were surprised with extras thrown in “for the hell of it?” Sans promotional items or stickers, it’s only happened to me once. Not that I don’t like stickers, the back of my laptop is covered in them and it’s recently been expanded to include the Fur Face Boy sticker that came with the shirts.
Support your local creatives, whether it be designers of clothing, producers of music, or owners of stores. Not only do you get away from the mundane commercial filth that fills stores and radio stations, but you get to build an actual relationship with the people behind the products.
Find Fur Face Boy’s clothing at Adikt, Centre, Good Records, and We Are 1976 if you’re in the area, or you can always order straight from the source at furfaceboy.com. Follow Fur Face Boy on Twitter, he’ll be the first to let you know when the new FFB lines are released.
P.S. I’ve been sick for a little over a week and been eating lots of soups and drinking lots of hot chocolate. The day I wore the new blue shirt I got Pho splattered all over the thing. It’ll be clean again soon once it meets with the washing machine. Thanks again for the great designs and the extra shirt Ha!
