First of all, we're sorry that we missed last week's DTG Friday. Things here in the art department have been busy to say the least, and we're up to our eyeballs in design work. There has been some really cool stuff coming through here lately, and we'll be adding in a gallery of art to our website soon! 

This week's DTG Friday features a cartooned big rig tow truck. It's an illustration that I did a few years back, and has been one of the most popular designs I've ever posted on my own website and Flickr feed. Who'd have known that big rig tow trucks had such a following? Maybe it was my love for big trucks that came through in the art - when I was a little girl there were no Barbies and dolls in my room, only die cast cars and trucks, Star Wars figurines, stuffed animals, and Army men. A shirt like this would have been one of my favorites for sure. 

Here's the original sketch of this hauler: 

I originally created this 'I LOVE TRUCKS' design for my young nephew, who definitely LOVES trucks (his 3rd birthday had a trash truck piñata - not kidding) and according to his Mom he wanted to wear it every day for a week after receiving it. He's grown out of it and is due for a new one.

I'm sure you know a child that loves trucks as much as I did, and this is the perfect gift for them. It's printed on a 100% cotton t-shirt and is available in sizes 2T through kids XL (14/16) - click here to order!

As usual, we ship anywhere, so if you want to send this as a gift to a far away grandchild or loved one, we can accomodate that for you. Just be sure to note that when placing your order

Thanks for looking, and we'll see you next week!
