About the design

A - E - I - O - U . . . and sometimes Y.
Like an awkward kid on the playground, 'Y' never knows if he is going to be 'in' or 'out' of the vowel club. So, he just hangs out on the back of this shirt, waiting for an invite.
Words have always been my recess. When I was four, I wrote my first "book" on the back of some of Dad's old business papers. (The protagonist was a wolf who ate wolf food instead of people.) I still remember sitting on the cold basement floor, awed over that my two hands had made a real story happen.
The magic of making letters make pictures is one high growing up hasn't worn out of me. This shirt celebrates that love. I hope it will inspire the kid in you to do a little scribbling of your own.
