He-Man and Skeletor, Garbage Pail Kid-style

Garbage Pail Kids artist John Pound created some new clothing for Stussy. I didn't see an obvious link to the clothing,but Stussy posted a long interview with Pound. For example:

STUSSY: What were some of your inspirations for those drawings?
POUND: Some of it was coming directly from Art Spiegalman’s idea of what would be good, and what would really push people’s buttons. He wanted it nasty and disgusting, and angry and rebellious. All the wrong stuff basically. At the time I thought, ‘Oh Well, I could do this, this is something I wouldn’t have even thought of doing at the time” cause I had my head in this weird place of fantasy art. Years later I realized something in my background too, about being familiar with kids. My mom had run a nursery school/monastery school in southern California, so I was around this. That’s a weird influence too.
Read the whole thing here. Pound drew He-Man and Skeletor as a commission. Via.
