On The Rise: Artful Dodger
Posted May 2, 2009on:
In my last “On The Rise” article, I talked about Kallusive Clothing and their use of color, vectors and quotes. They are one of the many few clothing companies out there that I think uses these mediums well. Another clothing brand that I also like is Artful Dodger. Artful Dodger combines detailed designs mixed with textures as well as unique quotes and names. The thing I like most about Artful Dodger is the names that they choose for each design. The names are all unique and goes with each design real well. I have one of their shirts (Boy’s size small, haha) called the “Death of a Craftsman Tee” (shown above) and I absolutely love it. The front is kept simple with just a small logo on the upper right side of the shirt while the back showcases a stunning skeleton (hence Death of a Craftsman) design surrounded by crazy vines, branches, pins, scissors as well as a ribbon wrapped around it naming “Death of a Craftsman”. Everything about this shirt just flows perfectly. Its crazy, every time I wear this shirt, I feel as if I have a huge tattoo on my back!
I have to admit though, I adore their older collections more, simply because to me they’re more unique and eye catching – but I still like this clothing line. This line is definitely worth the look and do visit Artful Dodger’s website, Artful Dodger Collection and you can purchase their clothing at Karmaloop.
