Opening Reception: Saturday, December 15, 2012, 7 pm
Exhibition Dates: December 15th – January 13, 2013

Each of us has our own monsters in our bellies, each our own animals in our skulls. Come to Mission: Comics & Art and join Cody Vrosh for his solo art exhibition “To All The Creatures Within Us”. This new collection of recent works explores the conscious and sub-conscious relationships we have with the beasts that inhabit our heads. Through post-human androids and post-apocalyptic gasmask girls, the binding note comes from the chorus of creatures inside us. They, who whisper in our ear with terrifying comfort, and tell us to trust the beasts, and chase the white rabbit. On December 15th we raise our glasses To All The Creatures Within Us.

Mission: Comics & Art
3520 20th St. Suite B
San Francisco, CA 94110
Ph. # 415-695-1545

The opening reception for "To All The Creatures Within Us” will be held at Mission: Comics & Art on Saturday, December 15, starting at 7 pm. The exhibition will be on display from December 15th until January 13 and is free and open to the public. Drinks and snacks will be served.

Curious Cases for a Good Cause

We're excited about these fantastic laser engraved bamboo iPhone cases designed by Cody for the launch of Mantrastyle's Limited Edition Artist Series.

Mantrastyle makes iPhone cases featuring inspirational designs that reflect a person's mantra.  The cases are made with 100% organic bamboo, a rapidly renewable source that doesn't require pesticides and has a lower overall carbon footprint than synthetic cases.  10% of the proceeds from every case sold online is donated to Freedom House, a non-profit organization that helps survivors of human trafficking.

Cody has created 3 new exclusive designs as their first featured artist:

Something Woodsy, Something Blue

When we were planning our own DIY wedding back in 2009, we came to discover that while brides have an infinite array of wedding fashions to choose from, the groom's attire options are sadly far more limited.  That's what got us started screen printing neckties.  Cody created an illustration representing "Wood, Water & Fire", the theme for our wedding and screen printed ties for himself and his groomsmen.

Since then, we've had the honor of having several grooms use our ties for their own weddings, which brings unto us great joy.  We've decided to begin offering wedding tie sets, starting with two of our most popular designs.

The Timeless Wedding Tie Set, a set of 5 of our Bigger on the Inside Doctor Who TARDIS Inspired Ties for the dashing Time Lord and his dapper groomsmen.

The Wood Grain Wedding Set, a set of 5 of our Against the Grain custom-designed wood grain ties, perfect for a rustic outdoor wedding.

Both sets are now available in our shop.  If you need more or less ties, or want to mix and match colors, message us and we'll be happy to work with you to create the perfect set.  Happy nuptials!

And because all this wedding stuff is making me nostalgic, here's few pics from our own wedding...

Monkeys and Replicants

We've got a couple of new tie designs up in the shop!

Our Replicant Tie is a homage to Bladerunner, the quintessential cyberpunk future noir film and one of our favorite all-time movies.  Roy Batty's "Tears in Rain" death scene (played by the magnificent Rutger Hauer) had a such huge impact on me as a kid, ensuring I would be obsessed with robots and posthumans pretty much forever.

Being a monkey is hard work, hence our Serious Monkey Business tie.  There are kittens to battle, trees to climb, and bananas to steal from your house.

Happy Pi Day!

Our Octo-Pi Mathematics tee was featured today in a rad Pi Day treasury on Etsy's front page:

SOPA Strike

Tomorrow, we will be censoring our blog post in support of the SOPAStrike to protest SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act), the misleadingly named and dangerous bills in Congress that would give copyright owners unprecedented power to block or shutdown websites entirely if they are accused of hosting or even linking to infringing content.

These misguided and ineffective bills would give the government and corporations the power to censor the web and effectively break the internet.  Yes, break the internet.  This is how dystopias happen, people.

SOPA has been reportedly been shelved (though is not completely dead), but PIPA is still moving forward.
