HURRICANE SANDY T-SHIRTS

November 2012

In response to the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, Greenpoint-based artist Sebastian Errazuriz created his “I Still Love New York” t-shirt, taking the classic I <3 NY shirt and dipping it midway into blue ink to represent the flood line. He also produced an alternative design using a t-shirt emblazoned with the NYC subway map, dipped diagonally into the same ink to capture the power outage the hurricane effected. Errazuriz teamed up with Grey Area to sell the t-shirts to raise money for victims of Sandy and relief organizations, and the project was met with an overwhelmingly positive response.
