Comment: Sorry for another delayed posting (with a few more to follow). I was traveling last week and a couple work outings and friends visiting have kept me busy ever since. I'm excited to finally share this little side project I recently finished. This is a shirt that I designed and had printed for a collaborative project with my father. After the whole Jesse Jackson debacle, he called me up and asked if I could design him a shirt that said "Nuts for Obama." Over the next 48 hours I got to work on shirts, a website, and acquiring quotes for the production. It all came together pretty fast and without a complete plan of how to get the word out—especially in a market full of 1000's of Obama related shirts. However, I think the provocative nature and double entendre in the message make for a great shirt. You know you want one. Yes I am shamelessly plugging my own wares for sale. Even if you don't buy one for yourself or as a gift or to burn in effigy—atleast visit the site so my late nights weren't spent in vain.
