BQT’s designers represent a vast and shady network of artistic talent from across New York City. Sometimes we even let people who reside outside of New York design shirts for us, provided they can answer a few simple questions regarding subway connections and rent control laws.
Even as we speak, new designers are creating the next round of shirts for BQT and will be featured here soon. If you’d like to join BQT’s roster of artists, or would like to learn more about our current artists, shoot us an email or click on the links below.
