This was created for the challenge in the T-Shirt Revolution group. The challenge read….
Brand new t-shirts only please. We’re going to play a little game of chance for this speed tee challenge. Head over to your bookshelf. Select any book that catches your eye and open it. Any page will do. Find a paragrah. This paragraph will be your topic. We want your t-shirt design to visually represent the content of this paragraph, whatever it may be … Please include the paragraph in your description. You have 24 hours.
My idea sprang from the first paragraph of Page 151 of Coronado by Dennis Lehane.
YOUR FATHER PICKS you up from prison in a stolen Dodge Neon with an eight ball in the glove compartment and a hooker named Mandy in the backseat. Two minutes into the ride, the prison still hanging tilted in the rearview, Mandy tells you that she only hooks part-time. The rest of the time she does light secretarial for an independent video chain and tends bar two Sundays a month at the local VFW. But she feels her calling – her true calling in life – is to write.
