What Do Dime Bags and Bob’s Burgers Have In Common?
It may sound like the opening line of a corny joke, but Dime Bags and Bob’s Burgers share a pretty cool fact. Sirron Norris has created art for us both! Sirron Norris was the lead designer for the show Bob’s Burgers, and now, has designed a batch of pins and patches just for us.
Dime Bags has become a community of like-minded people. We consider ourselves and our customers to be chill people with a sweet sense of style who are always ahead of the latest trends. We’ve partnered up with a pretty cool artist who has made us some pins and patches for you to further customize your Dime Bags products. Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to introduce to you: Sirron Norris!
About Sirron Norris
Sirron’s work has adorned buildings and streets of San Francisco since 1997, so he’s got a pretty sweet track record of over 20 years. He graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and since then has been praised for his fun, bright-colored, cartoon style work.
He was the recipient of the Artist in Residence programs at the de Young Fine Art Museum of San Francisco and San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in 2000 and 2002. This guy is known and loved for his growing track record of public art contributions. Norris is known for his extensive public art contributions.
His most famous mural, “Victorion: El Defensor de la Mission” is located in San Francisco’s historic “Balmy Alley” and has been featured in tons of media platforms. From magazines to books to advertisements, it wouldn’t be a surprise if you’ve come across Norris’s artwork before. The Calumet Mural, located at 18th and Bryant in the Mission district, currently stands as his largest at 600 square feet. It was recently featured in an international Mitsubishi television commercial for the launch of their newest vehicle in 2014. His work as a muralist was also used as the platform to launch the new Ricoh Theta campaign in Japan and the US. Basically, he’s becoming an international sensation.
Besides murals, Norris also has tons of remarkable artwork he’s created in several mediums, including multimedia, television, film, and illustration. He was the lead artist in Fox Network’s animated show “Bob’s Burgers” (how cool is that?) where he created backgrounds and character designs. In 2010, Norris’ art career was featured on the PBS News Hour with Jim Lehrer and in the TV show Concrete Canvas in the United Kingdom.
Our Sirron Norris Products
Norris has designed for us 5 patches and 3 pins, which all feature fun cartoon characters or buildings that look like they’re straight out of San Francisco (which comes to no surprise).
One of the coolest features of our Dime Bags is the option to remove our branded Velcro patch and to replace it with one of the dozens of other patches we have available. While we think all of our pins and patches are pretty cool – there’s something for everyone, we can just about promise you – our favorites have definitely become Sirron Norris’s work.
There are tons of shops in San Francisco that carry Dime Bags products. If you’re ever in the area, be sure to check out Norris’s public work, and grab a Dime Bags from a local smoke shop as a souvenir!
