To give you a little insight to start off with though, soon after the start of his brand, he would sell shirts out of his suitcase while traveling on tour with his band. So, to take it back to his roots, and back to the basics, he decided to tour the country once again offering well-crafted, well-designed, limited-edition , often cupcake-themed shirts out of his suitcases. The first stop he chose was my wonderful (that's the truth - not just my bias speaking) hometown of New York City. I arrived about twenty minutes early to the event to be blown away by the enormous swarm of fans and lengthy lines that stretched from down part of one block to another (insanity pictured below - and apologies for the mediocre photography throughout the post, my camera was acting up a bit). The line would only continue to grow throughout the evening. All to meet Johnny himself (who's only twenty-seven years old, I might add), get a special edition tour shirt or other goods, as well as just to show support for the unique brand.
Two in the morning was the time the clock showed when I got out of the shop, tired and ready to head home.
These experiences, people like Johnny, are really a strong part of what keeps pushing me. Johnny is able to live such a fun, positive, memory-filled, successful life; all at the same time while creating something truly timeless.
