HORROR SHOP OF THE WEEK: BOOGEYWOLF
As much as I geek out over killer designs and cool products, what really sets a shop apart from any other is the passion behind the products. One shop that definitely deserves a tremendous amount of love from the Horror community is Boogeywolf.
Run by an extremely talented artist who custom prints shirts from the back of his van, this shop features a variety of unique horror-inspired designs in a range of styles, including men and women’s cut tees, baseball tees, and tanks (as well as hats, pins, patches, and more).
I absolutely love his aesthetic. Lots of black and white and pops of red. Simple, but striking. As a gifted illustrator, even his logo is one of the coolest I’ve ever seen — and definitely something you’d be proud to wear on a shirt or other merchandise.
But what really makes Boogeywolf so special? He goes out of his way to support and nurture other artists and small businesses in the community. He regularly sponsors huge giveaways, like the amazing Beetlejuice 30th Anniversary giveaway going on now, that are exclusively designed to garner more exposure for other deserving shops and creatives. He’s even helping to sponsor a current mega raffle to help get a fellow horror shop back on her feet after a devastating fire (click here to learn more).
Boogeywolf lives by the mantra “Collaboration Over Competition”. He’s as generous and kind as he is talented, and he definitely deserves your support.
