AAA TEE History : The Short Version
I've been designing cool, fresh, badass, original, unique, one-of-kind t-shirts - on and off - for over three decades, man and boy. This new incarnation of my on-again, off-again label, courtesy of Etsy, is my first serious foray into the field in some time. My brief (and ugly) flirtation with Amazon Merch ended badly. That's a long story in and of itself, and I may tell it elsewhere. Let's just say that their asinine rules and regs not only took all the fun out of being in the business, but actually ended up costing me money. By all indications, this should go better.

AAA TEE History : The Longer Version
See above, then read on...

So the thing is, I've been designing (and to some extent, marketing) t-shirts for over 30 years. I got started back in the (gasp) 1980s, an era now mostly lost to the mists of memory (thankfully) -- though trickle-down Reaganomics and NAFTA continues to destroy the American middle class to this day.

(Yeah, I'm fairly politically active and I'm no GOP fan (especially after Trump), though the truth is, I left the Republican Party (or more exactly, it left me) decades ago. My politics colors some of my work. I hope you dig it. But if not, deal with it. ;-) )

Back in those ancient days of the prior century, I learned how to design for silk-screening, and started producing designs -- my own, and knock-offs of popular shirts selling in channels my connections wanted to capitalize on.

In other words, if the shirt shop across town was making a killing with a particular shirt, it was my job to make a copy of it. Not only was this not very satisfying, it was galling and kind of upsetting. I always felt kinda bad -- dirty even -- about ripping off others, even if the "design" (such as it was) was little more than black helvetica type (words, in other words) on a white tee. But it was still stealing somebody else's *idea,* right? Sadly, ripping off the other guy was, believe it or not, standard t shirt industry practice. BTW, pretty much nothing has changed in the ensuing decades...

Now, an *original design* or unique piece of art could be copyrighted, and most people were not brave (or stupid) enough to rip those off. It was technically much harder to do even if you wanted to try. And if you did, well... can you say lawsuit?

Of course, back then, there were only a few places in town you could get shirts made. Everybody knew everybody else, and it was much harder to get away with blatant rip offs of copyrighted material. Today, with literally scores of means of producing shirts, online and off, and hundreds (maybe thousands) of providers and channels, it's a lot harder to police infringements -- at least for the small guy. The big corporations, on the other hand, have dedicated staffs and teams of lawyers just ready to fire off the ol' cease and desist letter, to be followed by even scarier documents should you not comply (or cave).

Back in those days of yore, I had crazy dreams and ambitions of being a titan of the t-shirt industry. Well, hah. Fat chance of that!

By the time I finished college, I was already working in local ad agencies, and making far better money (at least as a wage) than I did in "the rag biz," as we sometimes called it. The allure of making huge bank (relatively speaking) from hot t-shirt designs and sales had never materialized, because none of those t shirt empresarios I was working for had ever seen fit to cut me in on the action. That was pretty galling too, I might add.

So I said "Fuck it!" Oh, and "Fuck off!" And "Fuck 'em!"

If Habib and Jose and Sammy the Slick weren't going to show me the love, I was going to take my tools and go home. Which I did.

NOTE: I really thought they'd miss me. They didn't. I found out the hard way that there were plenty of other starving artists out there who were willing to prostitute themselves for the paltry sums I had objected to.

I mean, I'd create a great design, sell it for a pittance, and then watch Habib or Jose or Slick Sammy make a killing on my work. Besides, working in a nice, air conditioned office on a 100º valley day, instead of in a Van Nuys silkscreen sweatshop -- for more money and respect -- had it's charms. Can you dig it?
