Cease and Desist - Tshirts for Everyone

Cease and Desist - Unisex T Shirt
by Factory Sample


A conceptual detournement, of a banned appropriation, made into a commercial object. Its a long story... 

Nothing exists in a vacuum. All creativity builds upon the past. And nothing is outside of the realm of human interpretation. Art and Culture is an ongoing conversation humanity has with itself. 

Freedom of Expression means companies don't get to pick and choose who they inspire, who makes art, and how they make it. That would be censorship.

BONUS: Everyone gets a free Cease and Desist Sticker in R2-Blue!

WAR-TOYS - 3 Editions - by Brian McCarty


War-Toys by

This first volume of work from the ongoing series chronicles McCarty's collaborations over the course of two years with children affected by the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. Working with humanitarian organizations including the United Nations Relief and Works Agency and the Israel Trauma Coalition, McCarty gathered children’s firsthand accounts in classrooms, community centers, clinical settings, and even bomb shelters.


Drawings that the boys and girls created are shown alongside the photographs they inspired, sometimes taken while fighting raged close-by. The resulting series provides powerful context for the children’s accounts while documenting the playthings available in each area. These cheap, plastic arsenals mirror what the children see everyday – in the news and on the streets. 

The 80-page, fabric bound book signed by the author includes over 75 photographs and illustrations; an introduction in English, Arabic, and Hebrew; essays by renowned expressive therapy experts Dr. Judith Rubin and Dr. Julia Byers; and a narrative account of the production of the series.


Available in 3 Styles:

*The Standard Hardcover

*The Special Edition with Figure and Print: (1st Picture)

 
• Alternate cover with hand distressed silver foil stamping. Limited to 50
• Individually numbered / signed title page.
• Toy artifact (34mm tall, cast in pewter) - molded from the actual toy solider featured on the cover and used in Wall Shooting.
• Signed / numbered 5x7 print of Wall Shooting.
• Certificate of authenticity.

*THE FOLIO EDITION (2nd Picture)


Fifty unique folios were created to help fundraise for the continued production of the WAR-TOYS Project. Each folio contains six signed and numbered 8x10 prints: three drawings shared by children affected by fighting in the West Bank and the three corresponding toy photographs created on the very first WAR-TOYS trip. 

Conceived and built by fellow artist and Grammy-award-winning package designer Hugh Brown, the folios are specially repurposed from surplus, French military medical kits. Their heavy steel cases have been filled with pieces from 7200 plastic army men, suspended in resin to form shelves for the archival prints. 

Each folio case is numbered with an engraved metal plate and is unique, inside and out. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
