My mother had 16 first cousins and her family was very close. So, it’s a little odd that there hasn’t been a reunion since 1991. Due to some heavy pushing from a few dogged relatives, we’re breaking that trend and meeting next week Friday in Monterey, CA. Of course, I couldn’t resist designing a T-shirt for the event. Here’s the front of the shirt, available through Zazzle.
I was floored with the technology that’s now available for printing. They can reproduce a full color design on pretty much anything, in any quantity FAST. Being from the old school of T-shirt design and production (I created and screen printed t-shirts and handbags for my own micro-business on Kaua’i, a gazillion years ago) I find this nothing short of miraculous. Of course, I’ve been told that it’s not the same quality as screen printing, but I guess I’ll find out.
Anyway, I’m being prophetic in assuming that we’ll survive all the cousins, aunts, uncles and sisters for 3 days in beautiful Monterey. So, the back side is as follows:
I do wish I’d said “the Family Reunion” and said where it’s being held, but truthfully, the design took up all of my weekend and I burned out on it.
