Claw Money was commissioned for the second time to support the Small Business Saturday that took place on Saturday, November 29th. Claw Money showed her undying NY support this year by covering Nolita’s Little Cupcake Bakeshop with her iconic Claw and other bright designs that fit perfectly with the adorable cupcake shop vibes to promote the Shop Small event.
The Small Business Saturday movement was started to remind us to show the necessary love for the small business hustle that keeps our NY communities up and running. Having long embedded herself into NYC history and as a die-hard New Yorker, Claw is able to give back to her city and promote the “Shop Small” movement by supporting the hard work of the Little Cupcake Bakeshop.
The Bakeshop itself has the quaint corner bakery set-up your grandma would die over completely down but adds its own unique funk with bold graphic tees, snapbacks and featured local artist items for sale as well. So whether you want to grab a “Dreaming Princess” cupcake or a “Fuck” Snowglobe, the bakeshop has you covered—holla at grandma with the cupcake thooo.

HBO Documentary Films released “Banksy Does New York” this November to chronicle the artists’ 31-day stint in our very own, New York. The documentary followed the unleashing of Banksy’s pieces spread borough-wide to be viewed by any and all that happened to catch the undisturbed originals while they lasted.
True to Banksy form the artist kept the city on their toes—keeping his identity anonymous and his locations on lock. In the city that never sleeps, with ears and eyes everywhere, it was no surprise that everyone from city officials to die-hard dog walking Banksy hunters had something to say about Banksy’s NY residency. And it was only natural for HBO to then hone in on world renowned Graffiti artist and influential New York native, Claw Money to be interviewed about the artist running on her turf. As a staple in NYC graffiti history, Claw was able to add in some OG perspective and why it was no shock Banksy picked NYC for his takeover.
You can peep Claw Money in the full-length documentary on HBO On Demand or HBOGo!
