Seattle artist and muralist, Henry, has teamed up with 1201 Apparel to release a collection of exclusive graphic tees featuring his work, which benefit the locally founded non-profit organization One Day’s Wages. You may recognize Henry’s work on the sides of many buildings and various structures around the Seattle, but this is his first time having his work feature in the apparel space. By collaborating with 1201 Apparel, all Henry’s tees and prints sold at will contribute $5.00 directly to One Day’s Wages to aid their efforts in alleviating extreme global poverty.

1201 was first born out of a “desire to facilitate generous giving by combining local art, culture, and style.” The brand seeks to produce apparel featuring the designs and work of local artists, but also strives to benefit the same community that shapes them. For their first line, 1201 and Henry have joined together to produce great classic tees which showcase the fun, emotion-evoking characters of their partner artist’s work.

The brand prides themselves on being very “artist-centered” and makes a great attempt to make the work of the artist the centerpiece of their online showcase. At, all visitors are able to read up on the featured artist and non-profit partner, as well as browse through the many Henry works that can be seen on-site. Currently, the apparel can only be purchased on the brand’s site alongside many exclusive replica print options.

1201 Apparel’s main objective is to “spread great local art and style while befitting worthy causes.” Make sure to be part of the movement and shop the full selection of Henry featured product.



The Seattle’s Art Community Joins Forces with Lucid Live Jazz Lounge in L’ Union Fait La Force…Strength Through Unity Silent Art Auction. Gala Bent, Adriana Grant, Allison Manch, Emily Pothast, Studio Narvaez, Laura Wright, Specsone, and more…

A time to heal, a time to pray, a time to celebrate and remember lives lost from the recent tragedy in Haiti.  Lucid Live Jazz Lounge is pleased to present L’ Union Fait La Force…Strength Through Unity Silent Art Auction, February 10, 2010 from 5:30-8:00, bidding 7:00-8:00 at Lucid Live Jazz Lounge.  This auction is a fundraiser to support the rebuilding of several hard hit communities in Haiti, but it’s also a celebration of resilience and unity. The event will feature a diverse lineup of Seattle based artists, and live jazz throughout the evening. No Cover or Ticket.

The story of David Pierre-Louis, Lucid Owner was recently reported by Katie Couric on CBS news. They followed David as he left Seattle in search of his Mother in Haiti only 3 days after the quake hit.  He has since held several fundraisers to support his goals to bring water filtration, and medical supplies back to those who need it most.

Following the auction, guests are invited to enjoy the vintage sounds of 1920s jazz with Miss Rose & Her Rhythm Percolators. The Seattle-based quartet will play from 8-11pm and will continue with the evening’s fundraising efforts by donating all of their tips to Union Fait La Force…Strength Through Unity.
