Miriam Dym, based in California, is mainly occupied in printing fabrics these days, but among her many textile operations is LRP --Logo Removal Project. Send her your ugly-ass printed corporation-shilling t-shirt and she will--yep-- remove that logo, replacing it with what we call an underpatch in a random but lovely shape dictated by your advertising slogan or ancient sports team or defunct charity--or whatever you've got. Of course she could do similar work on anything with a hole, but we do love the way she creates the holes in the first place.
Watch this space for more VMs from Miriam, and an order form for your own.
