DEEZHOG. I wore this hoodie all through our US/UK/Germany/SXSW tour this spring. It was designed and printed by Michael Files in Asheville, NC. The hedgehog design was inspired by Deez friend, fellow musician, and Asheville resident Angi West's love for the spiky balls of cute. The hair, of course, is Darwin's.
Michael created the deezhog to commemorate Angi’s birthday, and our back to back gigs at Emerald Lounge. He then printed a limited run of tees and sweatshirts which we took with us on tour. Three shows later we had sold out.
This is the loudest article of clothing I own. It has received more compliments and smiles from strangers than any other. And, it makes me happy every time I put it on.
I am happy to report that Michael has decided to make more DEEZHOG clothes. You can get them at his website, HERE.
