Affinity Community Services x IPaintMyMind Fundraiser: Equal Rights & Justice T-Shirt by Sam Kirk
IPaintMyMind Board Member and multidisciplinary artist, Sam Kirk has created an exclusive t-shirt in collaboration with Evan La Ruffa of IPaintMyMind.
The idea was centered around finding a phrase that said it plain and that said it clearly. Then we came up with the idea of Sam’s awesome figurative work existing inside IPaintMyMind’s headline font, Noir Pro Bold and we landed on a keeper.
The result is a detailed yet bold design that represents our shared values. The t-shirt is only available here and 50% of proceeds will benefit Affinity Community Services on Chicago’s South Side and 50% will benefit IPaintMyMind.
Sales end December 4th and all orders will arrive in time for Christmas Day!
