It's BRFC's 13th anniversary. I've been thinking a lot lately about that meme that references the idea of being told you'd become more conservative as you got older, but how you've just become wilder, and yeah, that really feels like me lately.
I'm always thinking about different ideas and values that I aspire to or hold and how to illustrate them as a design. Like compassion - in a way I think a lot of my stuff promotes a compassionate lifestyle, like telling you not to die today, but maybe that's not clear to everyone.
So I finally just decided to write a bunch of my values down, straight up, on a shirt. Are these all of them? I doubt it. Will some things change over time, and new ones get added, or valued more over others? Sure, that's why Pro Growth is on there. Do I say I hate things all the time? Absolutely, but I'm 100% groups that are hateful towards, or create an environment that is overtly hostile towards to an identifiable group. (per antihate.ca)
Putting aside the double negative positivity, and making the message clear, here's the BRFC 13th Anniversary shirt. I only made 13 of them, including one for me, so there are 12 available. They're on Comfort Colors blanks, which I absolutely love with their garment dyed colours, and vintage-y feel, but they cost more, so these shirts come at a premium price as well. IF I end up making more in the future, they'll be different, and on my regular blanks (which I also love.)
