In the beginning of February I quietly launched a new project call Chest Laser. Itâ€™s an online independent clothing and art store. All of the products and designs are made by different artists but share a common theme and/or look.
My goal is to create a place where people can shop for artist-made goods and to be an alternative to shopping at major chain stores. Other places try to profit off the artists; I let the artists profit from me.
I got the idea from Shana Logic. Her store sells mostly cutesy stuff, so I want to create a store that sells edgier things. I also know a few artists that have things to sell but donâ€™t have the internet know-how to sell them online. Since I have the know-how and they have the talent, this should work out great.
I would like to thank Matt Gondek for creating the graphics for the site and the first limited edition shirt. He also helped in the brainstorming for a catchy and edgy name for the store.
I am working out contracts with two more artists. I hope to have their products up sometime next week. Keep checking the site for more details as they become available.
I am always looking for artists to partner with to sell their creations. If you are an established artist or just starting out, I would love to hear from you. Contact me at jmosley at chestlaser dot com for more details.
