[MESH]: Artslam!'s little bro transforms Limelight into a silkscreen factory

Damien Velasco of Miau prints a shirt.


With Artslam! going strong for more than six years, Rob Perez and company are now looking to do for screenprinting what they did for grafitti/urban art: bring it inside a bar, add booze and some bands, and sprinkle DJs in to taste. The result is [MESH], and last Saturday night Limelight was turned into a T-shirt factory staffed by various San Antonio and Austin screenprinters. The theme of the night was "Double Feature," mashing two or more films together on a single shirt. This led to some clever designs (Lolita + A Clockwork Orange by Damien Velasco) and some obvious ones (Blues Brothers + Reservoir Dogs + Darth Vader = Men in Black), but film buffs had lots of different options to choose from, and — the best part — got the thrill of watching their one-of-a-kind shirt get made on the spot. Toss in an energetic set by Televangelist (a new project led by Mark Anthony Esquivel featuring members of Daytes) and loud noises by Czars and you have an event that could one day grow as large as Artslam! itself. Keep the ink flowing, dudes.
