First off, I’d like to apologize to anyone who might find the title offensive. What really interests me about this topic is how t-shirts designs can be different, or stay the same as you look at different countries. For every This Is How I Roll, there is Play Back That and Swimming To You. Clearly, there’s a lot of attention and creativity applied to these shirts, as Wikipedia explains:
For the same reasons that a Chinese character or a Japanese Kanji tattoo seems “exotic” to many in the West, Asians may appreciate English words or gibberish for its aesthetic appeal alone; straight lines, frequent symmetry, and the unembellished curves of Latinate letters may all appeal to Asian senses of aesthetics and balance.
With this in mind, I’m wondering where some of you are from. I’ve checked last month’s logs, and I’m seeing a bunch of visitors from Sweden, Australia, and Ukraine (which is where I was born). Of course the majority of my visitors I believe are from the United States, which is where this blog is based.
