Tshirt, 1994, 7-Year Bitch




This iconic Hempfest® t-shirt, from the 1994 event at Gasworks Park, is the first of many by the award-winning art team of Jamie Sheehan and Art Chantry. It's a very limited second edition collector image that was created for the 1994 Seattle Hempfest® and was originally printed on both hemp paper and hemp burlap as a poster. Hempfest’s® art director at the time, Jamie Sheehan, teamed up with punk art poster icon Art Chantry to make this art design award-winning poster image, one of which hangs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in Cleveland Ohio. Headlining the 1994 Hempfest® was the bombastic all-female Seattle punk band, 7 Year Bitch, and the gigantic mosh pit and stage-diving at that year’s 15,000 person event are still talked about in punk rock circles today.  Sheehan and Chantry continued to collaborate on several more award-winning Seattle Hempfest® t-shirts and posters. This design won the 1994 Art Director’s Guild Award for Excellence in Design and a Summit International Award from the same year. The all-female Seattle punk band, 7 Year Bitch, headlined that year!   The difference between this Cotton version and the Hemp version is color and price.
