For Summer 2011, Stussy worked on a series of t-shirts with animator JJ Villard.
A graduate of CalArts, JJ has worked on huge Hollywood films such as Shrek the Third, Shrek Forever After and Monsters vs. Aliens before landing his current gig at Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. JJ’s personal work is drastically different from the high profile projects he typically works on. Inspired by 80′s pop culture, horror films and things of a darker nature, JJ used the idea of a sketchbook to inspire his tees.
Using pens, pencils and markers, JJ created a series of t-shirts capturing the rawness of a sketchbook. See him speak in the video below.
