ABOVE THE NAZCA LINES
Bookmark and Share

Chicken Or BeefBack from South of America. Had been to Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands and Peru. To get a better overview of some the world’s biggest and ancient geoglyphs we had a funny flight across the famous Nazca-Lines located in southern Peru. The Nazca lines were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.
As the Nazca Culture left its impressing marks in the Nazca Desert, Marc Ecko tagged the Air Force One (as part of a giant staged campaign), we (of course a bit more modestly) eternalized our lovely Chicken Or Beef-Girl on the nose of plane OB_1302, based at Aeropuerto de Nazca Maria Reiche. Nazca-posterprint and stickerpacks available at Shop.ChickenOrBeef.de. More pictures behind the scenes in our magazine and blog about design, art and traveling: Magazine.ChickenOrBeef.de.

Chicken Or BeefCan’t wait to prepare the travel bags, sketchbooks and camera equipment for our South of America Tour this summer!!! We will be on the road in Peru, Ecuador and and will say »hello« to giant turtles on the Galapagos Islands! As usual we will be back with new illustrations, pretty shirts, fancy stuff and tons of new ideas! To bridge the time we made the tour-poster and another one called “Nothing To Declare” available for sale as high quality prints at ChickenOrBeef.de (width: 500 mm, height: 700 mm). Although they come to you signed, “officially” sealed and packaged in rolls we didn’t want to deprive you from (printed) creases on the posters.

JOTOPIA BOX JELLYFISH SHIRT
Bookmark and Share

Chicken Or BeefHere comes the new Jotopia T-Shirt design. It is inspired by our trip to Australia and snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, where you have to be really aware of highly lethal box jellyfish and always should wear such fancy stinger suits. In case you got stung by one of these cute little sweeties you have at the most about 50 seconds to disinfect the wounds with vinegar, which is desposed at most of the beaches at the west coast of Australia and to start with cardial and lung massage. Don’t worry! – Having always worn such suits, you will still have the pleasure of new Jotopia designs in the future. The Box Jellyfish Shirt is available for sale at KatRock’s Jotopia-Super-Online-Store ChickenOrBeef.de now!!!
Feel free to drop us a line in case you want to preorder this shirt. Enjoy with salt and vinegar!
