Pompking Seasonal

posted in: Art, Products | 0

It’s that time of year again. Where fall is right around the corner, the trees start to display beautiful colors as a last hoorah before winter. Halloween preparation is in works, and the heat dies down a bit (in the midwest anyway).  This is our bread and butter, our favorite season.

September 1st marks the return of Pompking Seasonal, our super heavy hold pomade. Smelling of pumpkin spice, Our pomade smells good enough to eat, and holds like hell. We are so proud of this bad boy, the pomade that started it all.  In thanks to all of you for your continued support of our shenanigans, we will be doing a limited run of an alternate art label.

A few years ago a very talented friend Paulo Rocker created this label for us, we never got around to using it because we changed the OG scent to Bay Rum. The first 24 tins sold this year will have this exclusive label.

Stay Greasy y’all!

Pompking is thrilled to announce that we are teaming up with a fierce artist group called Mujeres Mutantes from Chicago, IL. These girls are not only talented and driven, they are opening doors for their female peers into the male dominated art world.

Pompking will be producing a private label and donating proceeds to help this collective continue to promote the arts through workshops, exhibits, vending opportunities, promoting woman freindly Zines and much much more!

 

Stay tuned for more details!!

As some of our loyal followers might know, our original Gamma Grease art was a chibi version of The Hulk designed by my amazing girlfriend Manuela. A lot of people still ask for our old art but we both felt that Gamma needed a new artist and a new feel (also we didn’t feel like getting sued by Marvel regardless of how cute the Hulk was lol) Which is when we branched out and looked for an artist which captured the feel and charisma of the pomade and of Pompking. Out of nowhere I found Nooligan, the piece that caught my eye was on of his characters off his amazing comic Union ST. Choir, which I highly recommend you go pick up a copy http://www.nooligan.com/#, so I instantly reached out to him. He agreed to working with us on Gamma Grease, he has provided us with 2 amazing labels for Cherry Cola and Gamma Green, both of which we are so proud of and he has agreed to work on the next Gamma product (we are in the early stages of working on the formula and Nooligan has been pretty busy so we hope to catch him at a good time)

We highly recommend you follow this amazing artist on his tumblr (http://artofnooligan.tumblr.com/) and his Instagram page (http://instagram.com/nooligan) to catch up with his latest work. Head on over to his site and check out all the great projects he has been working on and future events where he will be participating. Again we want to thank N so much for lending us his talent and imagination and for his offer to help us on future projects.
