To James Haunt, the world is a big canvas. He’s painted murals on walls at the LA Fashion Week venue Box Eight, at the US Open of Surfing and on streets around Los Angeles. Sometimes those images can be found on the mobile billboard of a T-shirt. “One day, I’m given an opportunity to paint a mural, then I have to come up with a concept,” said Haunt, who was born with the name James Gillette. “Then I say, ‘I really like this piece; maybe it would work well on a T-shirt. … It lends itself with being creative.” For his self-named downtown Los Angeles-T-shirt label, James Haunt, the artist uses a number of graphics from his murals. Graphics could be flying saucers, a robotic-looking face with eyes and a smile that seems way too big, or Southern California beach girls. Of course these pop-art pinups are wearing James Haunt T-shirts. The label also offers T-shirts that are primarily blank except for a small pocket on the front bearing James Haunt graphics. James Haunt T-shirts have been placed at retailers such as Tilly’s, Zumiez and Kitson. The graphics are printed on custom-made T-shirts. They wholesale for $11 to $13.
