This was created for the challenge in the T-shirt revolution group. The challenge read….
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.
So i grabbed a book that i thought would have some interesting paragraphs….Richard Pryor’s “pryor convictions”.
…the paragraph reads…with some editing…
“I never wanted to be white. I always wanted to be something different than a n****r, because n****rs had it so rough. I tried to be a black cat with neat hair. I thought that was the problem”
so. i drew a quick sketch of the man himself and gave him the neatest ’fro he could ever have….although he did keep his pretty neat.
