Arts and Crafts: Mike Sportes
Filed under: Arts and Crafts | Posted by:

In this day and age of computer generated album art and tee shirt design, the work of Mike Sportes is a refreshing and much needed addition to the art world. His art nouveau influenced images are mind-blowing in their complexity and after years of drawing skillful doodles, flyers, and smutty t-shirts,   he’s now devoting his time to hand drawing images for band merch as well as personal projects. He counts folks like Jenny Lewis, The Chapin Sisters and Dawes among his list of fans and clients. You can always find Mike at his shop Filth Mart, Tuesday- Sunday. Orginally located on 13th Street in NYC, the shop has since relocated to sunny West Hollywood where you can purchase his original tee designs as well as loads of killer vintage tees you can’t find elsewhere (a proper post on FM is on its way). Check out more of his work after the jump.
