Lots of people talk about wanting a "virtual presence", though that's usually before they realize those Tamagotchis need to be fed constantly. For a Coloradan shirter finally establishing his own, browse the work of Adam Sikorski.
Raised in Aurora and currently churning out t's in a studio on Santa Fe, Sikorski's just launched a legit online shop to peddle cheeky shirting previously only available at non-e-stores like Buffalo Exchange and Fancy Tiger, also what you'd call Siegfried and Roy's pet, which spends way too much time at the maul. CO-themed shirts include "Coloradical" paired with a state flag or an 8-bit mountain vista, a football helmet'd joint in Broncos colors, and "Stay Real, in Colorado", with the state outline and Denver marked by a star, though not by Jeff Daniels, as he never comes back here. And also, isn't a star. His newest (and more random) styles include "Crime." with a mustache right under the neckline (designed to be pulled up over your face to make you look like a dastardly criminal), one with a stack of feathered arrows, and another featuring a dandy six-armed octopus with a monocle, top-hat, and umbrella, which loses nearly 100% of its effectiveness underwater.
Getting semi-serious, he's also just dropped a design inspired by September's wildfires, with a burning tree surrounded by adorably unconcerned woodland creatures -- who also make for poor gifts, because the only thing worse than virtual poop, is poop.
