I got an email from the guys at W+K this morning. My friend Jan passed away this week. I only met Jan the week that I was in Amsterdam for the show. But like all brothers of true metal we bro'd down about Sabbath, and Dio and had a few beers together. This one goes out to Jan... I'm listening to Sabbath mate.

Rest in Peace Brother of True metal...

So live for today, Tomorrow never comes

It really seems like we can’t get enough metal over here at 350 Broadway. After successful collaborations with Arik Roper and Ed Repka, we’ve decided to continue our legacy of working with the finest artists that encapsulate the twisted and macabre. This summer, we teamed up with artist Richard “French” Sayer for three new shirts. French’s usage of twisted, ghoulish images, plus an undying love for everything metal, made the partnership an inevitable one for Mishka.

From Aldershot, Hampshire in the UK, French is known for his extremely detailed line work of ghastly, mutated creatures. Having done projects for numerous skateboard companies – Zero, Creature and Real to name a few – as well as a handful of record sleeves, French is now bringing his unique designs to Mishka and blessing us west of the pond with not only his shirts but an art show featuring a selection of works. This will mark the very first of many art shows to be housed under the 350 Broadway roof.

French’s latest shirt design for Mishka drops July 30, 2009 at the Cursed Scrolls art show at our flagship store 350 Broadway. Cursed Scrolls runs for six weeks and will host the opening party on Thursday, July 30th at 350 Broadway from 7pm – 10pm.
