Tom Eglington is a self-taught artist and writer. He has developed an illustration style that combines elements of vintage Japanese prints, 70s sci-fi, outsider art, comics and collage. From William Burroughs to Jack Kirby via Henry Darger, his work channels a bizarre fantasy world of occult symbols, lowbrow pop art and hallucinatory visuals.
Jeremy Fish x Upper Playground releases new Superfishal designs this week focused on “survivor relics of the true era of Vanning”.
“Much like the sad trending of fixed gear bikes, and more recently vintage chopper motorbikes, the iconic 70’s van is unfortunately somehow having a retro resurgence. We at Superfishal have been up on the vintage van game for the last 15 years, and have always loved a good shaggin wagon, stabbing cabin, or rolling room. The vintage van t-shirt capsule is a direct reflection of our everlasting love for a little home on wheels. Don’t get it twisted, these drawings were inspired by real survivor relics of the true era of Vanning. Be sure to score these now before naked tattooed unicycling becomes the thing to match your old timey haircut and weak facial hair.”-JF
