It all started with a pair of unicorn socks.. January 26, 2015 13:07
When I randomly met fantasy author, Peter S Beagle, I did not know who he was!
I was selling my unicorn socks & tees & Peter off-handedly informed me that he'd written a book about a unicorn. I traded 2 pairs of unicorn socks for his yellow paper-back novel & went about my business.
Peters poetic writing style, along with his inspirational quotes, immediately caught my attention. I was hooked!! This wasn't any ordinary novel, this was a fine piece of literary art.
That book was titled 'The Last Unicorn' originally printed in 1968.
Growing up in England, 'The Last Unicorn' was not at all prolific, but i couldn't understand why i hadn't even heard of it. Peter used subtle Northern English dialect & Robin Hood references in his writings ( I am from Nottingham) .huh?
Then I discovered the animated movie version with actors Allan Arkin, Mia Farrow, Christopher Lee, to name a few. The movie was stunning, hand illustrated by hugely talented Japanese artist Kubo & the TopCraft team, later to form the infamous Studio Ghibli ..AND thats not all...The Last Unicorn was the annual Xmas movie they rolled out every year in Germany ( Das Letze Einhorn! ).
Could 'The Last Unicorn' be the best kept, little secret, ever?
Needless to say, I became a rabid Peter S. Beagle fan, devouring his other talented novels, Tamsin & A Fine & Private Place.
When Peter approached me about becoming an official licensee / brand manager, I could not be more elated. (You can call those unicorn socks damn magical!!)
The stunning artwork, along with the inspirational & funny quotes, are simply to die for. I am truly honored to be part of the 'Last Unicorns' new journey. (..you know there is an interactive Broadway musical in the works, right?)
So this is the very start of that journey, (..Peter would probably call it a fairytale)
We have exciting plans for a LAST UNICORN merchandise mix. In the mean time we didn't want to hold off. We are introducing the 2 nostalgia frame tees of 'The Last Unicorn' by NewBreed Girl' that we made especially for Jan 2015 TLU Cali screening tour.
Also check out our own kawaii-cute designs. We have limited quantities on everything, so don't wait. These are not available in any big store, we prefer to keep it personal.
