Remember Anneke’s awesome post about Minerva Teichert’s use of a particular shade of red and how she and her friend wished it came as a crayon? Well I suggested that it’d make for a great t-shirt, and Anneke, who is a design goddess, came through with a pop-art Minerva Red crayon design. I really like it. I like how it both celebrates and subverts latter-day pop art cute by paying homage to a preeminent, beloved LDS artist and her love for the Savior.
Here’s the link to the AMV Spreadshirt Store where the Minerva Red t-shirts can be purchased. The design is available on either black or white shirts, including three different styles for women and, for the first time — children’s sizes. Proceeds from the sales of Minerva Red products will be split between supporting the hosting costs for A Motley Vision and helping Anneke pay for grad school.
Many thanks to all who have purchased AMV t-shirts so far. One or two more t-shirt purchases and we’ll reach enough sales to pay for this half of the year’s AMV hosting costs.
A special shout out to Gibby who got one for his dad (click through for photographic proof).
Unfortunately, the esoteric way to nonadvertise the fact that you are LDS, e.g. the LDS Deseret Alphabet With the Characters Represented in Hex Code design, didn’t do much for anybody (in spite of the fact that a lot of people clicked through to view the designs). Perhaps it was too esoteric. But just in case it was the t-shirt styles holding you back, I have created additional female styles (slim fit and a modest v-neck version) to that set of shirts (click on the link above) based on feedback from the wife. You can also now get the original A Motley Vision in Deseret Alphabet design in the v-neck style. The wife loves hers — and looks great in it.
As always, stay tuned: we’re on track to roll out a few more quirky, esoteric, totally-Mormon designs over the next six months or so.
