My Brain Is On Fire

Every tropical ecologist needs a good t-shirt to wear in the field. Image above is from my favorite t-shirt from the Peruvian Amazon - western Borneo years (1894 - 1995). Shirt has long since been washed into oblivion,  but I was given a promotional postcard of the drawing when I bought the t-shirt in Berkeley, California. It's pinned to the wall of my office. [NOTE: And my brain is still on fire].

I had that same t-shirt, also bought in Berkeley in the mid-80s. Mine is long gone, but I've always loved the design. Thank you so much for the picture!

I saw someone wearing this at UC Davis in the late 80's. He was in the art department, I figured it was an art thing. Wish I had picked one up back then.

This is so crazy, my mom is the artist of this. This is my favorite design of hers. Happy others liked it too. :) she’s told me about her times selling these

Will she do another run of the shirts?
