If you’re anything like us, the first think you think of when you hear the words “relentlessly cheerful art” is Tickle Me Elmo – as your eyes start to glaze over. Ironically enough, that wouldn’t be that far from the truth because James Hance Relentlessly Cheerful Art is all about the Muppets. It’s also about everything else in pop culture worth being aware of (Iron Man, Batman Superman, Star Wars, you get the idea). Hance starts with a scene you’re probably familiar with (Van Gogh’s Starry Night), then adds some classic nerd (Batman) and ends with something completely ridiculous and totally awesome (The Dark Starry Knight). If you can’t find anything you like in the collection of re-envisioned Michelangelos, Warhols, and Van Goghs then you’re doing something wrong.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
