Architectural Boston and Once Upon a Time

This is the design I did for You and Who, a company that sells t-shirts and give to charitable organizations with every sale. You and Who just launched their City Pride line, a series of t-shirts that feature the name of a city, each one designed by an artist from that city. I was so thrilled when they contacted me and asked if I would do the shirt from Boston. I thought it would be a challenge to come up with a design that both represented the city, and also had the city's name in the design. However, when your city has a lot of character, then it is not hard to find inspiration.

You can order t-shirts here: You and Who.

Note: The Architectural Boston t-shirt was designed and made before the Boston Marathon bombings. The sale of this shirt will benefit homeless shelters in Boston, not the charities that were set up after the bombings. There is, however, another t-shirt on You and Who's website that benefits the One Fund for the victims of the terrorism (with the One Fund's logo on it) if you are looking for a way to support that charity also.

Other news: I got my copy of Once Upon a Time, the fairy tale with a twist-themed anthology by Gurukitty Studios in Canada. I illustrated Troy Minkowsky's alternative version of the Hansel and Gretel story, which was fun to make, but a sad, sad story indeed. You can buy a copy of Once Upon a Time here if you're interested in quirky fairy tales (strictly for adults!). If you don't want to buy the $15 printed book, you can download the digital version for $4. Enjoy!
