"Shoeless" Joe Jackson, one of eight Chicago White Sox players wrapped up in the infamous Black Sox Scandal surrounding baseball's 1919 World Series. Even though Jackson and the other seven players were acquitted of doing anything wrong, the new commissioner of baseball still banned all eight from ever playing baseball again. Sadly, even after being found not guilty of any wrong-doing, baseball still refuses to reinstate Jackson.

"Oh Tennessee, My Tennessee What Love and Pride I Feel for Thee. You Proud Ole State, the Volunteer, Your Proud Traditions I Hold Dear." Starts the poem "Oh Tennessee, My Tennessee" written by Admiral William Lawrence. I've decided to start a line of shirts based around the states. This is the second in the series. The first being of my home state of Missouri.

I was looking to make a new Facebook header for my personal page. I wanted something to inspire myself and others to create something: Art, photos, food, woodworking or whatever. Just make something, created something that has a special meaning to yourself or someone you care about. Just CREATE!

I love me some coffee and I know there are many people out there that do too. I have seen many coffee themed t-shirt designs out there, but I wanted to make my very own, with my own cup and my very own hand drawn lettering. I hope you all enjoy it...maybe even with your favorite cup of java in hand.

My favorite holiday! I've seen various skull designs all over the Internet and I wanted to do my own take on the old skull and crossbones...but I wanted to make it a bit silly. I hope you all like it and of course... HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Popularly known as "The Show Me State", Missouri actually has no official state nickname. There are many stories as to where the phrase came from, but the one circulated the most comes from a speech by Congressman Willard Vandiver in 1899, who said, "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton, cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I'm from Missouri, and you have got to show me." This is in keeping with the saying "I'm from Missouri" which means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced." I'm a Missourian through and through. A skeptic about everything from UFOs to Bigfoot to the Paranormal. If you want me to believe in something, you're going to have to show me, first hand with my own eyes.

I was going to use this design (not the color) for a potential project for a sunglasses company, but nothing ever came of it, the project stalled out before I even submitted the design. It has sat on my computer and I finally decided that I would put it out there in several different colors, both solid and gradients, and maybe patterns and let you good folks have a wide variety of selections to pick from. This is the first color combination, a light colored center becoming a chocolate color at the outer edge.

In St. Louis we bleed two colors, Blue and Red. We love our major sports teams. It's ingrained in our souls. If you're born here 9 times out of 10 you're going to be a fan of one or both of these teams for life. We are fanatics of one and a Nation for the other. You can guess which this is a shirt designed for! We cheer for our "Boys of Summer" win or lose! We get attached to players like they're members of our family! When they're traded, we mourn...99% of the time. When a new player is traded to us, "The Nation" makes them feel welcome and embrace them with open arms. We in "The Nation" are a classy bunch, we appreciate the game and, be it our boys or the opposing team, if you make an outstanding play, we give credit where credit is due.
