This month, we've asked Buy-Tees to write up a review of OC's artist-designed t-shirts. Buy-Tees make and sell t-shirts as well as providing valuable feedback to t-shirt manufacturers and designers. They're also an online fashion magazine featuring reviews and news in the world of tees. For more information about what they do, click here.
Monkeybiz is a South African run, non-profit, income-generating scheme that helps women in the townships of SA by providing them with craft skills to make beaded animals. The women employed by the scheme sell their work to Monkeybiz, who pass on the animals for sale all round the world. The women, in turn, are able to buy supplies and education for their families and continue to work from home in order to provide for them. Buying their craft work has a direct impact on the quality and prospects of their lives.
A range of Monkeybiz beaded animals are available in our Hinde Street store.
Watch their video for more information.

Nomenus Quarterly is a collaborative publication and platform, working with artists of all mediums and disciplines within the worlds of the fine-art and fashion. It is published online four times per year, and additionally in print as a series of limited edition folios and books. Nomenus was conceived initially as a location where commercial artists could be viewed in a more intimate and personal manner, focusing on the physical act of creation. and utilizing a more classical cannon of aesthetics. All works presented in Nomenus are created for each edition, or are previously unpublished. In 2009 Nomenus has also teamed up with The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Gagosian Gallery to present archival materials from contemporary artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Lucian Freud and Roger Ballen. The limited edition folios are presented internationally in a series of 50 copies per issue, with original German etching prints bound in a numbered box. Each issue differs in terms of quantity of prints and respective price. All folios are printed by hand in New York.
Nomenus Quarterly is curated, designed, photographed, and art-directed by Erik Madigan Heck.
