The Real Fun Capsule

Just For The Fun Of It

Spring 2021

Real Fun, Wow! is a sprawling artistic enterprise born from the mind of Ojai, California-based illustrator/designer/muralist Daren Thomas Magee. Though his pathway through the art world has been unconventional, he commands a loyal following, and we think it has something to do with the sheer exuberance on display in his work. Whether he’s devising a fresh mantra (“Joy is Now” is a favorite) or transforming one of his subtly stunning prints into a massive mural, Daren’s perspective and approach are one-of-a-kind.

For The Real Fun Capsule, we asked Daren to imbue four of our pieces with his unique brand of magic. With some signature TS styles—The Heavy Bag Tee and The Western Shirt—serving as his canvas, Daren cooked up some brand new printed and embroidered designs that perfectly capture the breadth of his talents. The resulting pieces are truly something special, adding a refreshing dose of Real Fun, Wow!’s signature whimsy to our timeless silhouettes. Enjoy the collection, and most importantly, have fun—
