Pillow Fight Designs is back in action!

Pillow Fight Designs is the creative brainchild of Seattle-based artist Leigh Riibe. Starting in 2003, Leigh set out to create accessible art in the form of handmade clothing and accessories including shirts, screen printed tee shirts, totes, and more.

Pillow Fight Designs has transformed itself many times over the years. As a tee shirt company all the designs are conceived and executed from start to finish by Leigh. Meaning the designs are created by her, transferred to film, burned to screens, printed by her hands and sold by her online or otherwise. Pillow Fight as a freelance design gig means working with businesses including High 5 Pie, Fuel Coffee, Molly Moon's Ice Cream, Cafe Flora, Marination Mobile, and Don't stop Believin Records to create tee shirt designs, posters, print ads, design websites, and layout album art for bands like Triumph of Lethargy, Pony Time, and Strong Killings...

Pillow Fight Designs is currently creating one-of-a-kind photo blocks. Using the increasingly popular iPhone app Instagram, Leigh prints photos she has taken in her everyday life, mounts them onto 4" x 4" wood blocks, and resin coats them. They were on exhibition in a collaborative show called "we like you" with Mika Loudon at Fuel Coffee in Seattle from Oct-Nov 2011. Below is a brief description:

"“We Like You” is an attempt at taking something so instant, accessible, and disposable back to a time that was more tangible, artistic and appreciated."


JANUARY - FEBRUARY ASSIGNMENT I wanna make love in this club: songs you wanna hear out.

Due: February 29th, 2012

As a present to you in this brand new year, we here at TVMOTMC Headquarters have decided on a theme that is pretty much wide open. Since getting our toes wet in the DJ thing, we thought it would be a good idea to get some ideas from you what we should play at our next gig.

With this assignment, you can pretend you are the DJ, and make the perfect set list for your DJ night at your favorite club. Maybe you want to go to a dark saloon and hear all the saddest music in the world while you sip on bourbon and reminisce of past loves and losses. Or perhaps you'd like to go to the local goth club and listen to 90's industrial music all night long. Maybe
you'd like to find a nice quiet library in some small town that you can swoon along to your favorite folk records. Or maybe you want to dance all night at a 3-story club in the gay neighborhood and get laid.

No matter what you decide, we hope you have fun with this assignment. And please don't forget to make beautiful cover art, include a track list, and send $3 with your mix.

♥ Share music, make art, and keep post alive.♥
