So I made these T-Shirts...













For that multi-million dollar Uniqlo contest thingy and they didn't even pick my designs. Too bad. Maybe it was because I used this image as my profile picture? Oh well.

I wonder who will win in the end. The prize is 3 Million yen! That's a lot of dough. And Yayoi Kusama was judging - she is one of my favorite artists. I wrote a post on her last year - my second post on my new-born blog! (October 13, 2006)....

Friday tomorrow again?? Hmmmm...time is really escaping me somehow these days!

Uniqlo haven't got a clue. They used to be this chain that you could only find in the suburbs of Japan, and one day, they turned around their "Brand Strategy". They haven't a clue. That's why they didn't pick your design, you should be glad. Fight it, Bree, Fight it, don't give in.

I want that ants one.

Also, you should make that eye one with the eyes closed. Wear it as a pair with Patrick and walk around winking to people without winking... The Art of Winking Without Winking.

Oooh - that is a killer idea! I like that. Weird I didn't think of it...then it would match my favicon!

Ya. I am bummed about Uniqlo. I really thought they would like something kind of wacky - I mean with Y. Kusama as a judge??? Come on! I thought she would be all over my eye design....sigh...thanks for the encouragement...

hi, i just stumbled on your page by coincidence and think your t-shirts are very beautiful.... in fact your whole blog is very nice.
why not send the designs to www.graniph.com, another crazy japanese label (they are always looking I heard).

Wow - dearest of my youngest brothers,

What an enthusiastic response! I am so glad you liked the shirts! Maybe if I can figure out a way to make them I WILL send you and your friends some...that would be cool...hmmm...Okay - let me figure something out.

That would also solve the whole Birthday/Christmas present for you now wouldn't it...!
