When I was 12, I discovered a lot of things. Music was integral to helping define who and what I liked, and I went in as full bore as a 7th grader could. I locked up in my room memorizing liner notes, I wrote zine upon zine, and of course, I accumulated a hefty collection of buttons.
I work at a music magazine now, so I'm still surrounded by tour dates and bravado. I don't pledge my undying allegence to any one band, I don't really wear band t-shirts. But I can't give up buttons! They are still small and understated. They are utilitarian if you need to hold pieces of fabric together. They are little conversation starters.
Basically, they are awesome. And these are little pieces of art.
When Taryn Hipp wrote about her artist collaboration project, I knew right away I wanted to be part of it. Taryn's done buttons for me before--but these are special. Full color and sold in a set, they are only available at Taryn's online store, and at my shows.
There are only fifty of these sets available, so snatch them up while you can!
