The new t-shirt–the first of the new series–is called ‘Red Girl Fiery Hand – Keep It Lit’, and it features one of Sarah James’ original photographs of an iconic piece of street art that she discovered on the Lower East Side in NYC in early spring of this year. Sarah James believes the ephemeral and constantly changing street art and graffiti scene of NYC and especially the Lower East Side is one of the things that makes the Tee shirts so iconic. It’s very exciting to be now immortalizing these works in high-quality Tee-shirts.

In a market now defined by fast fashion and ubiquitous trends, Sarah James believes her new Lower East Side street art merch collection will allow shoppers to wear something that feels really one-of-a-kind. Unlike classic NYC tourist merchandise, Sarah James believes her authentic and carefully curated pieces are perfect for NYC natives and visitors alike.
The first t-shirt in her new series, ‘Red Girl Fiery Hand – Keep It Lit’, shows an image of an exaggerated female fire demon with a sinister but also inviting smirk painted on her face and a beckoning hand with fire-tipped fingers. Sarah James captured this mural against an orange backdrop with classic Lower East Side wall vents, cables, and other markers of daily life clearly evident.
The street art that was the subject of Sarah James’ photograph has since been added to, altered, and painted over in parts, as is common in the bricolage of the Lower East Side and NYC graffiti scene.
That’s why she is proud to capture it in its initial glory in her new t-shirts. Interested shoppers can buy one of her new t-shirts in classic black, red, royal blue, purple, navy blue, or pink. It is available in sizes S to 3XL and is made from 100% pre-shrunk cotton with a seamless 1-inch rib collar.
Sarah James Jazz Merch designs, prints, and makes its Tee-shirts in the USA. US shoppers will receive their order within 7-12 business days.
Sarah James has been capturing NYC’s street graffiti for over 25 years, and she said of her first t-shirt design, “I love how street artists manage to create consistently original imagery to inspire and entertain New Yorkers, and I find art where I can before it gets ‘altered’. I hope my new Tee shirts will help you stay inspired and “keep it lit.”
