This was a simple design I made because I wanted to see it exist. I’ll be the first to admit that it takes no special skill to trace from an aerial photo of the Great Lakes. The creative element here, if it can be called that, comes in not doing anything else. These shirts have nothing but an outline of the Great Lakes on them. No promo for your friend’s indie band. No logos. No cities, states, or any other political boundaries in the design. Just the lakes: Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior. No explanation. So that if you wear one, people familiar with Midwest geography will recognize it, and other people will have to ask, “What’s that random inkblot on your shirt?” That’s all.
