This is Not a Pipe T-Shirt – from The Girl and Rhino

I love this Magritte inspired T-Shirt from The Girl and Rhino, I have the actual shirt and it’s a great quality shirt and print. I met these guys at the Filmore Jazz festival and their shirts look great. They got a lot of press a while ago for their AT-AT dreams t-shirt which is also brilliant and gets a smile from anyone in the Bay Area. You can’t drive over the Bay Bridge without someone saying “hey you see those cranes over there on the dock…. ” yes we know :-)

I also love this threadless on which i have mentioned before

    Now, I don’t claim to be an expert on art – far from it – but does that first Magritte t-shirt actually *work*? I thought the point of the original painting, The Treachery of Images, was that it wasn’t a pipe but a picture of a pipe, and that the picture is not the object. Putting the phrase on a t-shirt, which actually IS a t-shirt of a pipe, seems to miss the point slightly.

    I do like, and own, the Mario one though.
