About the design
on February 20, 2006
I wanted to do a map of paranormal activity in the U.S. pointing to the fact that not only is the country steeped in a rich living history but also home to it's own fair share of superstitious nutters (hence the double entendre of the 'US' in the title). When the Joy of Text competition arrived I felt it was the perfect time to roll this out.
I have painstakingly researched (googled) the paranormal activity of each individual state. Where my research fell flat I relied on artistic license to fill the gaps...
The first incarnation of this design had a large 'Para-Normal US' across the centre of the map, however after an avalanche of advice to discard it I decided it might be prudent to listen to the critics for once. After much thought I decided to hedge my bets by leaving the first version on the guys shirt... If you like it that way, please leave a comment and maybe if it gets printed I could convince threadless to splash out for a second ink colour.
