Introducing: Artist Collaborations

EROS Artist T shirt | Hand-Painted T Shirt | Long Sleeve T shirt | Unique T Shirt | Limited Edition T Shirt

Proud to introduce a new line of Tees called our Artist Collaborations. Similar to our Artist Edition tees that we auction off for the TRUE COLORS FUND each year, these tees will donate back to charity, but will be produced in a larger (yet limited) quantity.  These tees will take a graphic element and combine them with the vision of the selected artist to create wearable art.

Our first venture is with Dallas Artist Ven. Monkey & The Bee has taken a piece of one of his paintings and had it screen printed onto a long sleeve white tee. The print wraps around the neck collar to the back as well as from the front side to the back. What truly makes these t-shirts unique, is after the screen printing process, Ven hand-painted in a similar style to the original painting on each of the shirts. Each one of these shirts is a real piece of wearable art and a collaboration between Monkey & The Bee and Ven.

25% of the proceeds from the sale of each of this shirt design will be donated directly to the Youth First Program at the Dallas Resource Center.

Obituary – A FINE ART EXHIBITION BY VEN

and grab up one of these limited edition shirts!

Art saved my life. I was lucky to have found something to get me through my childhood.  Knowing the statistics, not everyone in our community is as luck as I was. I want to make sure programs like this continue to thrive, supporting our LGBTQ youth as they face the battles that we know intimately. Youth First is actively giving LGBTQ youth the tools to not only survive into adulthood, but live quality lives as adolescents by providing safe spaces to be themselves.  It is only by donations that they are able to fulfill their purpose. – Ven

February has been Awesome!

Our first shout out goes to Dalton & Kiva Rapattoni … They took the time out of their busy schedules to stop by Monkey & The Bee to purchase an Awareness Tee to support the Dallas Resource Center Health Campus – Nutrition Center. On top of that Dalton posted this silly picture of him wearing our tee on his Instagram account and got us a few more sales (which means a few more donations) that we may not have gotten without their help. Thank you Dalton & Kiva for your support … we truly appreciate your kind spirit and helping us out with the February Awareness Tee charity!

Coming up for M&B

We are in the planning stages for our Spring photoshoot and getting new designs ready for the Spring. Stay tuned because the Monkey has a lot of ideas that are going to take a LOT OF MODELS!  Want to model for our next shoot … send us an email: info@monkeybeetees.com
