Reckless Erica FAQ
What is Reckless Erica?
Reckless Erica is a collaboration between two friends to start a clothing company that asks invited artists to produce artwork loosely based on a theme or phrase. With the artists never knowing their challenger, we take their submission online for a head-to-head battle and vote from the community, leaving only one left standing. The winning art then lands itself on a t-shirt and sold in our shop in limited-release.
Who's Erica?
Reckless Erica is a girl that doesn't always seem to be on the right path but is always where she wants to be. We first met her in a story by Paul Arden (Whatever you think, think the opposite.).
Who is behind this effort?
Shhh... We're keeping this part a bit secret as we don't want to lose our day job, at least not until we sell enough t-shirts where we can.
How often do artists battle?
Right now, approximately every two weeks.
Do the artists get paid?
They do. Besides a kiss from Erica, the winning artist gets a few dollars for every t-shirt sold.
How can I become an invited artist?
We are currently hand-picking artists we've respected and loved for years, but if you feel you've got the chops and ego that can take possible rejection, email us at recklesserica [at] gmail [dot] com.
What kind of shirts do you print on?
The always comfy, sexy and U.S. made American Apparel.
Do you ship international?
We sure do. We ship anywhere that has a mailing address.
Do you even know what you're doing?
Yes and no. We've been involved in fashion, art and print-making. We like music, the internet and making friends. We like girls and boys and even the ones that fall in-between. This concept is not perfect by any means. We don't know if it will fail or succeed, but we do know this is a combination of everything we are passionate about and that is what matters. We also expect it to evolve over time, you can help with that, send your feedback to: recklesserica [at] gmail [dot] com.
