Oliver-Barrett-Illustrations

Oliver Barrett is one of the greatest illustrators around today, and it’s a good bet that his name isn’t ringing any bells for you. Do you read Wired, or drink Pepsi, or shop Urban Outfitters or enjoy Marvel work? If you answered yes to any of those questions (that should just about cover everyone reading this), you’ve probably seen Barrett’s work. From band posters to portraits of Steve Jobs and Bill Murray to typography work for Cleveland State University, Barrett combines his unique illustration style (there are lots of lines) with cultural references that anyone would find interesting. It’s fun, it’s funky and it will look even better on your wall than it does on your computer screen.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
