In the mid 80s, while working at various magazines like Vogue,Vanity Fair and Paper, I designed and printed t-shirts for my company RePop. I’ve recently stumbled upon several vintage shots that feature those shirts. Straight To Hell: The Manhattan Review of Unnatural Actswas a little ‘zine edited by my friend Victor Weaver. I produced a show for STH at The Pyramid which each week featured many luminaries of the day; John Waters, Kenneth Anger, Quentin Crisp, Taylor Mead, Jackie Curtis, etc. I made a shirt to sell which has become sort of collectible.
Later, I did another show, Bad Boy, after Victor and I had a falling out. The title of the show came from an Eric Fischl painting that had I had just included in a layout at Vanity Fair. Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato would DJ those monthly parties at Danceteria which featured naked go-go dancers from the Times Square theater The Gaiety (where Madonna later shot scenes from her book Sex.) Anyway, those days are long gone but I love the fact that these shirts in a small way, immortalize that time.
