new t-shirt design for utensil
I drew this t-shirt design as a collab with Utensil in Beacon for WearTogether — an initiative by Kalene Rivers & Dan Weise to raise money for local small businesses and artists during these difficult times. A bouquet of kitchenware for kitchen wear. (Or living room wear, porch wear, anywear.) Up now for pre-order only through June 8. Scoop it up at
Shirts will be printed and delivered to supporters after a successful presale. Profits are split 50/50 between artist and business unless otherwise indicated. While I hope you will consider buying mine, there are many great designs by local artists for other businesses as well, and it all benefits our community!
I like drawing utensils and I like to cook and bake, and eating things that are made for me. Kitchen tools are probably in service now more than ever, as we are home prepping all the meals. This bouquet of utensils includes some new and shiny from the shop, and some vintage ones from my own collection. Every whisk, every spoon has a story.
"I love the idea of a project that supports both local businesses and local artists. I immediately thought of Erica when I saw this opportunity. I was fortunate to work with her for Windows on Main Street a few years ago. Her art work has a beauty and practicality to it much like the kitchenware at Utensil. I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Erica again!" - Emily Beldon Burke, owner of Utensil
