Kerouac Designs on Black Tees (Until They Invent a Darker Color)

I have a very Important client, by which I mean a darling whose cheeks I've kissed and who probably has heard me pee at least once. Mags The Very Important and Kissable-Cheeked needs a t-shirt design for Kerouac Fest 2009. I'm a HUGE Kerouac fan, but ok only just as of today when I saw this:

because wow- I am so in the groove of that kind of uber-casual voice because of the whole Infinite [Jest DFW Brain Drain] Summer thing. So, I am thinking I need to dig into some Jack when I finish my David. Also, my dog is named after Dharma Bums so I'm kind of a bad mom since I haven't read it.

So, here are the choices, and perhaps you'll help Margaret decide. Click images for bigness.


Also, there is news of the me making money variety: I got approved as an Amazon affiliate or assiciate or assistant book whore or something. So! If you aren't at your local independent bookstore, and are thinking of buying one of the lovely aforementioned writings, please think of doing that here:


  1. I lurve them all but the first one is the best.

    You are my hero.

  2. Yep, I agree L. I am madly, passionately in love with that quote. I wanna get that quote drunk and make out.

  3. First one is definitely my fave too!

  4. It's been decided -- we're going with the first one!

  5. How am I supposed to decide?? All of them so great. I love the quote in the first one, and I generally steer toward anything involving words. But I'm also in LOVE with the graphics of #2.

    I can't choose between the two!

  6. Erin, I'm glad someone else is feeling #2. I like it- In my head I call it "Heidi Does Jack via Franz Klein" :) I'll put them all in my CafePress site soon. Today is "Kill The Dust & Mold" house cleaning day.
