Stussy x John Pound...

If you were alive in the mid eighties, then you have probably seen John Pound’s work even if you don’t know his name. He’s the artist responsible for drawing the phenomenon that was Garbage Pail Kids. Released by the trading card company Topps in 1985, Garbage Pail Kids left a mark on many childhoods. For Stussy's spring 2009 collection, they worked with John on a series of tee shirts, mixing his famous style with some of our iconic imagery.

Having put together a capsule for Stussy earlier this year, his most well-known work is perhaps his special Garbage Pail Kids work for Topps back in the 1980s which was an unexpected success; “I had turned it in, in January of 85, and I didn’t really hear much from them, until maybe May or June. They were doing a test release and said ‘Oh man, it’s really taking off. Sales are really going good on Garbage Pail Kids. Lets do another series.’” Check the feature out over at
