Due to the unrelenting and unbearable angst of our participants and friends, we have made our Gales Custom Tee-Shirt and Hoody available for order on the Gales Storm Gathering Website.
The hoody and tee design comes courtesy of Shawna Franklin of Body Boat Blade in Orca Island Washington. Shawna has been an inveterate print maker and artist with charcoal, watercolor and drawing for a long time. After the popularity of last years design, we asked Shawna to make a custom 2012 Gales Design. My friend Bryn Boulter from Biggs-Gilmore helped us design the layout and lettering for the shirt and off we went. We offered them in classic black with white lettering for our trend-setting crowd. A deep and pithy quote from the inimitable Signor Neruda is on the chest pocket area reads, “I need the sea, because it teaches me” should impress your friends with your knowledge of world literature and prose. You will be the talk of the town, no matter what town you are in.
Picture yourself sipping a soy decaf latte at a Northern Michigan gas station where deer feed, hunting knives and turkey jerky are sold, being able to quote a Chilean Poet to your Speedway attendant, pretty cool huh?
