The Pekar T-Shirt (A Deal Harvey Would Love)

July 29th, 2010 by Larry Smith

When we created the “Harvey Heads” T-shirt drawn from the 120+ portraits that an incredible collection of artists/Harvey enthusiasts made as a surprise for the late Harvey Pekar’s 70th birthday, we knew it was cool, but had no intention for it to be a collector’s item. Now with Harvey’s passing wearing the T-shirt takes on a new meaning (and every time I wear it, it sparks a conversation about Pekar with a stranger; a lovely thing). This weekend Spreadshirt is offering free shipping for its partner shops such as SMITH (on the Pekar shirt, a Six-Word Memoir shirt, or any SMITH apparel), so I thought it would be a good time to let everyone know about the Pekar tee again. It’s wearable tribute to a master storyteller, one we miss an awful lot. Use these coupon codes when you checkout: FREEWEEKEND (U.S.), CADFREEWEEKEND (Canada).

You can order your Pekar tee or hoodie here. For more on the making of the Harvey Heads (spearheaded by Pekar Project editor, Jeff Newelt), and a list of the nine artists who contributed to the T-shirt, read an earlier post. Above: a postcard I received from artist Rick Reilly. Rick’s Pekar tee had just arrived and he was moved to record that moment in the best way he knows how.

    Harvey Pekar was my favourite comic book writer and I’m so sorry he’s gone. I’m studying the History of Art at college and I have a task to choose an artist and write a critical analysis essay. I don’t know even where to start but I have an idea to return to Pekar’s creations. This leads me to regard Writingcheap samples as a basis of my assignment

    It can be applied in moments before bed and, as it uses platinum as a delivery vector, it retains the ingredients on the surface of your skin as you sleep for greater efficacy. No time-consuming skincare regime, just a single-step pampering ritual that will show real results.
