Princess Diana Tribute Tshirts

Is it possible it's been 20 years since Diana, Princess of Wales, left us? It was 1997, and the 20th anniversary of that terrible day is coming up. It's hard to miss all the tributes, TV shows, magazines, and articles that are coming out now.

Iconic images of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1983, 1989, 1993, and 1997

Opinion is still divided about Diana and her legacy. Some believe she was wronged by a husband who never loved her and a system that didn't support her. Others (with whom I disagree vehemently) believe she was manipulative and slightly deranged. Those of us who watched her life, from wedding to funeral, were witness to the evolution and transformation from an almost schoolgirlishly naive teenager to a sophisticated, shrewd woman. There's no doubt she was highly intelligent, and was grievously wronged. Loved by everyone except the man she yearned to be loved by (Prince Charles), she could have become a bitter and twisted person, but instead she learned to live life as much on her own terms as was possible under the circumstances. She forever changed the monarchy, not just by giving birth to a future king (and a "spare" - the indomitable Prince Harry) who is bent on modernizing the monarchy, but by lifting back the curtain of mystery that the monarchy used to hide behind. She showed us they were humans, flawed and imperfect, and the monarchy will never be the same.
These two t-shirts are made in tribute to this remarkable woman, and contain quotes that are emblematic of her life and her gifts.

Princess Diana Quote "Carry Out a Random Act of Kindness"


Princess Diana Quote " I Lead From the Heart"

2017 Solar Eclipse Tshirts

We're less than a month away from the event of the summer! The 2017 Total Eclipse of the Sun will occur on August 21, and if you haven't started making your plans to get somewhere in or near the band of totality, you better get moving!

Cool 2017 Solar Eclipse T-Shirts at Amazon.com (Prime Eligible) 19.99

It's going to be the most talked about 2 minutes in history, with the possible exception of Secretariat's amazing Kentucky Derby run in 1973 (he set a still-standing track record of 1:59 2⁄5 - an amazing feat!) .
In some of the major cities along the band of totality, expect traffic chaos. And forget about getting a reasonably priced hotel room in cities like St Joe Missouri and Nashville Tennessee. But if you live near, or can get to, a small town or even better a campsite, you still have a chance.
Check out the band of totality here:

Bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, blankets, viewing glasses, cash and whatever else you might need for this event. And don't forget to dress everyone in your viewing party in awesome solar eclipse t-shirts! These are all available at Amazon and are prime eligible which means if you have Amazon Prime you get free shipping! T-shirts are a great way to not only remember your event for years to come, but they serve a purpose in the present, as well. If your party is wearing the same t-shirt, you're not likely to lose each other in the vast crowds.
So whether you're going to be viewing the eclipse in Madras, Oregon, Greenville South Carolina, or any point in between, get to planning now!

New T-shirt! Frederick Douglass

Do you know who Frederick Douglass was? I'll bet you do. You know who DIDN'T know who he was? Donald Trump. In early February, according to CNN, "...at a breakfast to mark the beginning of African-American History Month, he shouted out 19th century abolitionist Frederick Douglass, who died more than 120 years ago, as "an example of somebody who's done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice." Oy vey. Our response was to design this tshirt that pokes a little fun at the President's ignorance, while making a larger point or two. It features an image of the great orator and activist, with text that reads "DON'T BLAME ME, I VOTED FOR ULYSSES S. GRANT."

Buy it here for $19.99. Amazon Prime Eligible!

Oh, Mr. Trump, in case you're reading this, Frederick Douglass, according to Wikipedia, was "an African-American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. After escaping from slavery in Maryland, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York, gaining note for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writings."

RESISTANCE t-shirts

I'm going to share with you a bunch of resistance-inspired t-shirts today. I hope you like them. I've designed them specifically to wear to rallies and marches. The fonts are pretty large, so there's great visibility. I try to use humor and optimism when I can, black humor when I must, and anger when it's called for. Topics range from climate change to impeachment. All of these tshirts are available in my shop - called LOVE AND DEFIANCE - at RedBubble.
I always want to hear from other folks in the resistance! We are all doing what we can, and my contribution, in addition to marching, maintaining a Facebook action page, and being as active on Twitter as possible, is to create t-shirts we can wear as we resist. I hope to inspire and I hope my designs give life to the thoughts we are all thinking today.

The election. Ah, the election. I have to admit, after the election, I went into a downward spiral. I was depressed, I was angry, I was stunned. Still am, to a certain extent. But the anger has now become a call to action for me. I realize that I have taken my country, my government, and my freedom for granted all these years. Sure, I voted, I always vote. But I did so with a complacency that I think many other people felt. Now, suddenly, we are faced with scandal upon scandal, and a president who scorns, insults, lies and refuses to take his position seriously.


If you don't like my politics and my viewpoints, that's okay because this is still America. But be warned now, I am going to spend many posts, for the forseeable future, highlighting RESISTANCE apparel. I am going to be showing off IMPEACHMENT t-shirts. I am going to do my bit to design items that call out to the world that there are millions of us who did NOT vote for the embarrassment that is now in the White House.


If you do like my politics and my viewpoints, thank you. Please bookmark my page!


To get started, here's a tshirt I designed yesterday. It just came to me as I was reading all the news about the Russian connections.
