Rafi Perez Designs On Clothing And More

I recently decided to expand my art reach and hit a market that I’ve always been a little too afraid to hit. The market of clothing, mugs, and other cool home decor items.

The reason I have hesitated is because I am so used to being completely hands on with my creations. Every artwork and print that leaves my studio is touched by me and is completely bespoke.

And although I love the idea of producing artistic clothing with my own hands, it is an overwhelming task and one that would stretch me too thin and be quite expensive. Instead I decided to partner up with Redbubble and Fine Art America. They have a great reputation and between the both of them produce a plethora of great quality items.

I’m slowly but surely building a catalog of items. In the design phase I am creating the templates for each product and going over the details to make sure that they not only look awesome, but are top notch.

The plan is to have items for home decor, accessories such as iPhone wallets, Yoga mats, and clothing. The women’s line includes an A line dress and a Chiffon top, along with t-shirts for men.

I am currently in the design phase although technically I guess you can purchase the items I have already listed, though I have not released the series yet. I will be creating some designs that are specifically for t-shirts and various products offered and that will take some time. I plan on scheduling the official release for the Christmas season, so stay tuned.

Please let me know your thoughts and if there is any specific design or artwork you would like to see… I love the challenge.

25% Off Inspirational Limited Edition Hand Crafted Prints By Rafi Perez

As we hang out today in the studio, I am working on something new. There’s carving, etching, gluing, inking, cutting, rolling, and a lot of “oh crap” coming from me as I piece my technique together.Inspirational Original Prints By Rafi Perez

For a while now I’ve been wanting to create a series of pieces that are meant to be verbal reminders of feeling good. I sometimes add an empowering word or phrase to my paintings, but those are rare because I don’t really feel the urge to add words to imagery very often.

I remember back in my corporate days there were all these posters on the wall that were meant to motivate the employees. Things like the word ‘leadership’ with a picture of an eagle, or ‘teamwork’ with a bunch of dudes rowing a boat. I thought they were stupid… I still think they’re stupid.

Nowadays I have things that I put up in the studio and around the house to motivate me and give me a sense of empowerment. The difference is that instead of promoting complacency, everything I put up is about celebrating your individuality and feeling empowered… Also, they’re not stupid.

The other difference is that I hand create them, not simply print them out of a printer.
