Apparently T-Shirt Diplomacy's existense is mandated by the "1977 T-Shirt Accords", which represented "the belief by all sentient beings that the best way for humanity and alienkind to learn and benefit from one another is via a joint commercial venture selling imprinted casual garmentwear." This was news to me, but it sounded worthwhile!
Because my most recent t-shirtery is already happily housed by my pals at Topatoco, I decided to provide T-shirt Diplomacy with some of my older, out of print designs:
And after that, to be honest, I kind of forgot about it.
Well, T-Shirt Diplomacy has decided to launch their venture today. And, well... have a look at the creator line-up. There's lots of familiar faces like David Malki, Chris Hastings, Alina Pete, and Ryan North. But some of them are... a little weird. And their designs are even weirder.
Consider, for example, the works of Norm Al Hughman:
Or Ambassador Xog:
Or... actually I'm not even really sure what is happening here:
And that's just the tip of the iceburg. Just check out the full creator listing! I don't entirely know what to make of it. But I suppose it's some kind of honour to have my designs featured among such a... worldly crowd.
Long story short, you can now pick up some classic S&F tees -- and plenty of other confusing stuff -- at T-Shirt Diplomacy! Really.
