can't-knock-the-hustle

I know I already posted my face today BUT the shirt my 23 y.o. nephew Dylan designed & submitted for consideration to Cotton Bureau (which they then chose to produce) was in my mailbox when I got home tonight!

I ordered one big enough to wear to bed because sometimes I’m a genius.

They’re no longer available (Cotton Bureau only does short runs of their shirts), but thanks to those of you who also ordered them!

i literally just walked into a social media marketing company today and said “hey i drive by u guys every day, can i talk to ur community manager and analytics head” and they were basically like “lmao sure let’s sit u down for an interview”

My 23y.o., graphic designer nephew Dylan’s This Side Up t-shirt design got chosen for production by Cotton Bureau*! This Side Up is an impossible object (a 2-D type of design that is interpreted by our brains as 3-D) which is associated with the Penrose triangle.

The t-shirts are available in men’s XS-5X & women’s S-XL cuts in grey, indigo, and cranberry (that’s what they call the colors, I’m not being a dick who uses artsy names for blue and burgundy), and are super soft.

*cottonbureau uses a pre-order system, meaning every design gets two weeks to sell as many as it can, and then they print them. Cotton Bureau handles all the selling/printing/shipping/customer service. They ship two weeks after the pre-order deadline, which in this case is July 13, and the expected ship date is July 27.

There are 3 days left to order, if you happen to be interested. https://cottonbureau.com/products/this-side-up
