Love Me, next come the t-shirts – maybe on Etsy?


loveme 2

Shortly after Valentines Day I noticed an interesting scribe of Love Me on a friends flickr site. A couple days after that I saw a different one in SoHo on Mercer St. Since it wasn’t that many days after that luv holiday I thought the person may have just been in a festive mood a left it at that. But last night I saw a new one or at least new to me and while it’s no longer February it still seems fitting. Who doesn’t enjoy the words “Love Me”? That question also got me thinking, what if shirts with the same mark started popping up. I made the above image for illustrative purposes. It wouldn’t be that hard to sell them through a site like Etsy and the shirts would have a decent back story to go along with the creative script. From that scenario I jumped around a bit – what if the person selling the shirts wasn’t the actual artist that was the one making the words outside – would there be any recourse? What if the person outside was the person selling the shirt – they’ve just admitted to a small and lovely crime. Not a huge deal but those kinds of questions got me thinking. Anyhow – I don’t have any background story aside from what I see when I walk through SoHo. If anyone else can help me with more story on the Love Me thing, please drop a line in the comments.
