TBT: Today, I'm looking back on my first T-shirt submission to a shirt-a-day site. I didn't know what to expect, but was met with months of rejection emails, usually without any kind of feedback. This pushed me to create better designs, and the possibility of that golden acceptance email kept me going. At times, it was discouraging, but it was an important and necessary exercise in rejection therapy. "Thunderbolt and Lightning"--a Pokemon/FFXIII mashup--was the first design I ever submitted anywhere, and I look at it today as a reminder of both where I came from and where I'm going. I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane with me!

A humorous design, TRUST ME, I'M A CLOUD. This design has a grey cloud taking a photo. The cloud has lightening bolts for arms and a rainbow eye. It is holding a camera with a large lens. The concept is based on recent events which make it clear that the cloud is not to be trusted.

The 24th Infantry Division was an infantry division of the United States Army. It was inactivated in October 1996, it was based at Fort Stewart, Georgia and later reactivated at Fort Riley, Kansas. Formed during World War II from the disbanding Hawaiian Division, the division saw action throughout the Pacific theater, first fighting in New Guinea before landing on the Philippine islands of Leyte and Luzon, driving Japanese forces from them. Following the end of the war, the division participated in occupation duties in Japan, and was the first division to respond at the outbreak of the Korean War. For the first 18 months of the war, the division was heavily engaged on the front lines with North Korean and Chinese forces, suffering over 10,000 casualties. It was withdrawn from the front lines to the reserve force for the remainder of the war, but returned to Korea for patrol duty at the end of major combat operations.
