Stussy just released a series of T shirts that Peter Bagge designed for them, which can be seen here along with a video interview with a very bearded Bagge man.
Bagge has also been doing a monthly comic strip for DISCOVER Magazine. Each strip features a famous (or not so famous) scientist of yore behaving in the quirky, asperger-y ways that scientists are renowned for (Bagge has uploaded a sample strip in the "pics" section of his MySpace page for you to marvel at here.)
Meanwhile, a book collection of Bagge's REASON Magazine work (accurately titled Everyone is Stupid Except for Me) will be coming soon from Fantagraphics, and he's more than halfway done with a GN for DC/Vertigo. Could be a banner 2009 for Mr. Bagge!
Certainly the first major national ad campaign to throw around phrases like "But sometimes polyps develop on the colon of mankind."
Look for a new Robert Williams book from Fantagraphics in the fall of 2009.
On Saturday, May 17th, Overkill Shop in Berlin presents "Cheech Wizard goes to Berlin" with artwork by Vaughn Bodé, featuring an appearance by Mark Bodé and celebrating the launch of a limited-edition Bodé sneaker from Puma. The sneakers look pretty sweet (especially riding a Peter Bagge-designed Manik skateboard, I bet), though for me personally they take 3rd place to the Gary Panter-designed Simpsons Vans and Jim Woodring's custom-designed Chucks.
