For those of you not familiar with David Shrigley, the Scottish-born illustrator behind Err and Merry Ezcema, I suggest you get yourself to a bookstore because he is about to be everywhere. The artist, whose “Faux Naive” illustrations often depict the humor in everyday life as seen with a distinctly British sense of humor, will be combining with Anglophilic sweater makers Pringle for a series of limited edition series of designs which will be used on T-shirts and twin sets available September 10th in Tokyo, Hong Kong,  and London flagship stores.

However, the collaboration with Shrigley will not extend to merely wearable items. According to Flashart Online:

“On the occasion of the celebrations for 25 years of London Fashion Week, Pringle of Scotland will produce a billboard, designed by Shrigley, that will be displayed for the whole month of September across London’s underground network among the works displayed for “Art on the Underground”.

Pringle, a long time supporter of arts education , will be giving 20% of the profits from the shirt to arts and social institutions.
