Artist/graphic designer Ryan McGinness has a show coming up that all you SoCal people should go to. You may not know Ryan’s name, but you probably would recognize his work: he has a very distinctive style and he designed a number of Beck t-shirts ~2002/2003. There are a couple here and here, but he did others as well, including the stormtrooper shirt.
Anyway, Ryan is an awesome artist, so if you can, definitely go check out his show.
From Boing Boing:
