The Boombox Tank: I will never forget my first trip to Provincetown. I was 20 years old and now looking back, it felt like the gates to my adult life opened up that weekend.
I remember being on the beach with my best friend and flirting with the boys who had placed their towels next to our's.
We exchanged the 'hairy eyeball' all day but no one had the nerve to break the ice.
Finally, one of them pressed 'play' on their boombox and "Physical Attraction" by Madonna came on. It isn't a very famous song, but it is one of my favorites.... I knew that I had found my tribe.
Before I knew it, I was dancing on the beach with a bunch of strangers without a care in the world.
I had always been so self-conscious, I don't think I ever knew how it felt to finally let my guard down and just be myself.
When Andrew showed me the draft of a boombox illustration he was working on, it was like he had some creepy crystal ball that peered into my past. Friends have a way of just knowing, don't they?
The Provincetown T-Shirt Collection:
Provincetown has a mysterious way of popping up into my work.
I first visited "P-Town" over 20 years ago and it was an awakening.
I never knew I could feel so free being myself.
I wanted these shirts to express that sense of freedom and I knew there was one guy who could bring it to all to life.
Acclaimed artist Andrew Sedgwick Guth and I tapped into our shared love of Provincetown to create a set of tees - and they caught a lot of attention.
With things hopefully getting back to normal, we wanted this year's to be extra colorful & extra fun.
We were inspired by real life places, things & experiences like biking to the dunes, making new friends on the beach, flirting at tea dance and getting a little too tan at the pool.
This is a celebration of the joy & freedom that made us fall in love with this magical place.
These Were Made by Hand:

Made of 100% Cotton
Due to a lack of materials, this year's tees are imported and then hand printed in Harrisburg, PA.
No two shirts will be exactly the same - it's cooler that way :)
