Pekar Couture

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

By Larry Smith


With Harvey Pekar’s 70th birthday fast approaching this past fall, SMITH comcs editor Jeff Newelt had a great notion: Let’s see if we can arrange for 70 artists who heart Harvey to each render a “Harvey Head”, and then surprise him on his big day. I thought Newelt was nuts to think he could coordinate 70 artists in what was literally under two weeks time. But Newelt got more than 100+ contributions, and the heads get rolling in—120 and counting. Now, we’re pleased to feature nine Pekar noggins on our new Pekar Project T-shirt, found on our sparkling new Spreadshirt shop. Not a T-shirt wearing type? Go for a Pekar Project hoodie.

Pekar has done what the Cleveland Times calls “some of his best work in years” with SMITH, and we’re so glad to have this wearable way to honor him and The Pekar Project. The nine artists brought a different style and flare to the Pekar visage. Starting from the top left corner going right, they are: Jeff Smith, Sean Pryor, Tara Seibel, Jeffrey Brown, Adam Roth, R. Sikoryak, Joseph Remnant, Fred Harper, and Rick Parker.

Thanks to these artists, and everyone who has made our Harvey Heads Gallery an amazing experience. We hope to see a lot more floating Pekar mugs out there soon!

You can order your Pekar tee or hoodie here.
