Rockin' Jelly Bean x Big John for Naked & Famous Denim

Juxtapoz // Saturday, October 12, 2013
Rockin Jelly Bean is a classic Japanese artist in the world of salaciousness that we have covered in the magazine over the years, most recently the Pushead-curated Halloween issue of 2009. The artist has recently teamed up with Canadian jean makers Naked & Famous and Japan's oldest denim maker Big John on a special collaboration that features Bean's work on the leather patch and labeling. A little dirty picture or two should fit nicely on your butt.

Where to start... lonely hearts in Brooklyn, wandering gardens, signature rats, a political statement on the US military, cheap philosophy, and today, October 11, a meatpacking truck filled with stuffed animals called "The Sirens of the Lambs" that will tour NYC's meatpacking district and then citywide for the next two weeks.
