Did you watch “True Blood” last night? I’m a fan of the HBO TV series, and, yes, I would buy a Merlotte’s branded barmaid teeshirt, and merch that says Team Bill (I wonder if Kitson has made any of them). But would I buy these hand painted denim pieces, lovingly created in honor of this TV series? Not likely. I think the artist who painted these True Blood jeans is very talented. Having said this, I still prefer the silk screen or embroidered look.
There’s something about hand painted items that seem so fragile. If I were to buy these items, I’d probably end up having them mounted and encased in lucite for all to see. But, I’m the type who would prefer to walk around town sporting something that says “Fang Banger,” (okay, not really) “I’m Dating a Civil War Veteran,” or “Feel Free to Glamor Me.” I got a million of ’em.
