Pretty Nice Stuff

We are two Amsterdam-based “artists” named Laurens and Thijs. We do concepts, illustration, design, editorial work, and we silkscreen t-shirts under a label called pretty nice shirts. For the Freezing Favela, we (and our moms) stitched together a 30ft. t-shirt. Inside it we give workshops based on the idea that searching for perfection is futile and no fun. We’ll experiment with various drawing and printing techniques, and different states to be in when using them. We make pretty nice stuff, and that’s okay. It’s relaxing not to aim too high, and besides, things may paradoxically become more awesome when you’re not trying be too awesome. Or they may not, of course, but who cares?
