Hope you had a grande time breaking bread with family & friends. I did. First time in perhaps nine years that I have been home and not on tour for Thanksgiving. Many years of holidays while on a tour bus, fun but not the same as being with blood. I am very grateful to have Neil Gaiman for my boss, he has allowed me to stay home & work on projects, a big one being getting Neverwear to the next level.
I am preparing to go visit Neil tomorrow & give him some updates on what we are doing with the website. Recently met with Greg from Likeable Development & got some excellent advice from my "brothers" Jouni & DanGuy. For the next two months, I will have a small pop-up shop as we give Neverwear.net a little polish & shine.
Stay tuned for that update soon, probably around Dec 5th.
Meanwhile, several items will be cleared out, discontinued or otherwise shelved. Now is the time to raid Neverwear, and for incentive we are offering 25% of anything in the store.
Use the code: HelpKitty9 at checkout to keep some money in your wallet.
I will leave this code up until Friday, Dec 7th, midnight PST.
for example: 25% off makes this $10.00 Anansi Boys teeshirt $7.50.
Art by the lovely & talented Dagmara Matuszak.
We debuted this shirt at ComicCon 2007, a landmark for us to track the first shirts we ever made. The details are the ones that hooked us. The delicate printing of "Neil Gaiman" on the back of the neck, the Neverwear sleeve mark & the fine spiderwebbed martini glass...amazingly detailed print quality of the fine line artwork of Dagmara.
here is our good friend & magician, CROW GARRETT modelling the Anansi Boys beauty:
detail on back of tshirt neck:
These are Hanes' cotton Tees, if that helps any with sizing.
all we have left are smalls, mediums, and larges.
OR you can get the gorgeous OLIVIA/NEIL print that is usually $150.00 signed by both, for $112.00--
The Michael Zulli IN RELIG ORAN prints are going away as are several of the other limited edition prints. Help us clear some space for some new ideas. Take a look around. All my Kitty's treasures will be going away over to Etsy. I'll leave things up for a few more days, while I travel to meet with Neil.
You all have been so kind and supportive over the years, I hope that you'll continue on my journey as we step into the new...Neverwear 2.0!

Started with the best of intentions at ComicCon 2007, lil' Neverwear got left behind by all the tour buses, coughing up airplane dust-- poor Neverwear was hailing a cab in the pouring rain, trying to keep up with me, while I tried to keep up with Neil Gaiman.
and everyone knows, that man is near impossible to keep up with.
With the help of many, (thanks Jouni & DanGuy & Christopher Salmon!) we are now working (again) toward Neverwear 2.0.
long story short, MANY of the prints/tshirts/products will be retiring.
They may turn up at conventions or in charity auctions.
For now, though, it's time for them to go into hiding. The new pop-up shop I am building doesn't allow for all the rambling products I have now on the current NEVERWEAR site.
in this light, I am offering a coupon for five dollars off anything, good from today, Sat. Nov. 23rd until it expires on Nov. 25th at midnight PST.
the coupon code to use at check-out is: grateful2013
(you will get this Neil-money-sticker in your order.)
in the meantime, I will be moving all my Kitty treasures: comic book magnets & jewels over to Etsy shortly. Get them now!
speaking of Sandman, I will be attending tonight's showing at Gallery Nucleus...
