Denver Artist Relishes Opportunity To Design Strange Music Merchandise

Published: November 26, 2010 in Strange Music by

For Denver artist Josh Rogers, the opportunity to design for the company that’s been steadily releasing his favorite music has been a dream come true:

“I’ve been a fan of Tech’s ever since he first came here with ICP and did the show at Red Rocks. It’s crazy because I’ve always done pieces for the artists–canvasses for Tech and all the other guys on the label. Getting that offer from Liquid 9, when they asked if I wanted to design for the merch team–it was a pretty big deal for me because I’ve been trying for so long and it finally happened.”

Josh (also known as KANZ89 in the art world) has been preparing for the opportunity ever since his humble beginnings as a graffiti artist at the age of 15. Since then he has built quite the reputation: currently he has made many large-scale murals around Denver and was also one of the first graffiti artists to be commissioned by the city to create a public piece. Before being contacted by Liquid 9, Josh got his feet wet designing t-shirts for Ill Style Heroes, a clothing company that sells shirts designed exclusively by top graffiti artists around the nation. So far he has designed shirts for Strange Music, Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun and Brotha Lynch Hung. Josh’s talents are not only in demand from elite MCs but marquee athletes as well: he has also designed for former Bronco and current Miami Dolphins wide reciever Brandon Marshall. For a 21-year-old earning a BA in fine arts, Josh already has quite the resume and a very bright future ahead of him.

Josh’s Personal Favorites
I asked Josh to name a few of the shirts he had designed that he felt the most proud of. Here’s what he said.

Strange Music Red Tag T-Shirt
“Here in Denver there’s a lot of people with that shirt, so it makes me pretty happy that it’s a popular shirt and to know that I designed it.”


Strange Music Black Anarchy T-Shirt

“This one’s just one of my favorites in general.”

You can find these and other items designed by Josh at the Strange Music Store. All merchandise is 50% off until Sunday so be sure to get it while the getting is good! Click here for more.

    No one wears ’em in public, too damn offensive.

  • Nice! This is the same guy that Won that Damn Fool TV, Big Scoob Graffiti Contest. I’d still love to see that made into a shirt.
