Mission Bicycle Company is offering its first line of locally printed, limited-edition Día de los Muertos T-shirts. In the past, the company has designed calavera-inspired (skull) bicycles by staffer David Archard. This year, new staffer Jacob Niebergall designed the American Apparel T-shirts that incorporate bicycle gears within the skull. According to Niebergall:

“I really enjoyed doing the research on traditional Día de los Muertos iconography. After that step it was just a matter of sitting down, drinking a lot of coffee, and trying to piece together which bicycle parts would work for which parts of the skull. The chain links made great teeth. A saddle made a perfect for the nose.”
