Kurt Cobain Sketches Turned Into 'Kurt Was Here' T-Shirt Collection with Live Nation

Kurt Cobain’s sketches are now immortalized on T-shirts.
 
The clothing line, dubbed “Kurt Was Here,” is a partnership between Cobain’s estate and Live Nation Merchandise. The collection is being curated by Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Nirvana frontman, and features more than 50 pieces of clothing. All of the designs were taken directly from Cobain’s original artwork and have reportedly not been edited or resized to fit on the clothing.
 
“It is the right time to share this collection of Kurt’s work with artists, collectors, and fans, allowing them to experience Kurt’s legacy in a new way, and collectively celebrate his lasting impact on the world,” a Live Nation representative told Rolling Stone.
 
The collection comes just after the 25th anniversary of the grunge icon’s death. Cobain was found dead in his Seattle home in April 1994 from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
 
A portion of sales from the collection will go to the Jed Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to suicide prevention among teens and young adults.
