We're thrilled to introduce the second in a series of California-inspired Amoeba SF shirts with the Amoeba SF Surfer tank and tee! This colorful retro design celebrates the unique culture of the Northern California coast line as our little buddy takes to the waves. These unisex tees and tanks run in sizes small through 2XL and are just $15.98 each, available online and at Amoeba SF. The tees are 100% cotton and tanks are an 80%/20% cotton/poly blend.

Our first tee celebrates the state song, “I Love You, California,” with our Amoeba standing in for the California grizzly bear hugging the great Golden State. Those t-shirts are available in unisex crewneck, slim fit scoop neck, and children’s sizes 2, 4, and youth large.

Both shirts in the series were designed by Amoeba SF’s own Luciano Talpini Aita and silk screened here in the Haight Ashbury District of SF by our good friends and neighbors, Free Gold Watch. Talk about Keeping it hyper-local, FGW is just a block away from Amoeba SF and has been printing Amoeba SF’s line of gear for many years! FGW’s store front contains one of the greatest pinball arcades in the Bay, so stop by, play some pinball, and support this wonderful, uniquely San Francisco business.

Amoebite Luciano Talpini Aita is a contemporary visual artist, Illustrator, filmmaker, and musician. He studied arts at Facultad de Bellas Artes in Argentina as well as musical theory and piano at EMPA, and has participated in various group shows and solo shows in the United States, Japan, and Argentina. He has lived in Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, and San Francisco (where he currently resides). His artwork is figurative, non-conformist, and conceptual, rather somber and texturized with emphasis in small and repetitive details. His paintings are mostly acrylic on canvas or glass transfer water colors, and his drawings are ink and metallics on paper. His graphic design collaborations include Nordstrom, Triple5 soul, and Amoeba Music. Find his online portfolio @lustcommander on Instagram.
