These are supposed to resemble notebook covers. The text is all filched from my notebooks, appointments, colour specs etc. I loved Basquiat’s early Warhol collaborations. But what did Andy think when he saw a nice logo he’d drawn covered in hip street language? “Er, very nice…you’ve actually drawn over everything… But. That’s. Fine.” They look nice as T-shirts as well. What’s the point of wearing a T-shirt everybody understands?

The liner answered with a blast that should have flattened Manhattan. Totally badass. The captain’s most satisfying job of the voyage.
