Jerry Shirts (jshirts.etsy.com)
This week’s Tuesday uEtsy spotlight is Jerry Shirts, an Etsy store offering some really unique artwork on a different medium – old records.
It was this portrait of Cleveland’s own The Ghoul that caught our eye. Since it’s painted on a 12″ record, Jerry Shirts says it can “be turned into a clock or hung as is.” We think that it’s good enough on its own, but if you want to convert it to have a classic horror host of the midwest tell you what time of day it is, this is the product for you.
On top of that, Jerry Shirts showcases some real talent. Take a look at the Night of the Living Dead record for sale. Want to have Karen Cooper keeping track of you? Who wouldn’t?
On top of that, Jerry Shirts has Ash (Evil Dead), Regan MacNiel (The Exorcist) and such classic monsters as Frankenstein, The Creature from the Black Lagoon and The Mummy on old turntable favorites. Check out the image below of cult-hit ‘Nightbreed,’ vividly portrayed on a 12″.
Along with horror both classic and new, Jerry Shirts offers painting of punk icons (Circle Jerks, Agnostic Front) and some stylistic renderings of Sanity, Guilt and meth-mouth.
Some of Jerry Shirts’s more ‘traditional’ artwork showcases some of the founding fathers of horror rock: The Misfits. Both Jerry Only (above) and Doyle Von Frankenstein (below) are rendered on 8×10 canvas. Buy them both along with his Danzig portrait and stage your very own Misfits reunion.
A great steal for the prices offered, Jerry Shirts is a classy way to decorate your workplace, living room, bedroom or general punk-rock-horror hang-out place of choice. Head on over and check out his store today to see what he has available for you.
