Of course quarantine has sharply curtailed my shopping. Okay, I’ve spent many sleepless night trawling through eBay listings and perusing e-commerce sites. But most times I don’t pull the trigger. I posted about this purchase before, but it finally arrived and I wanted to share.
Here’s one exception. I saw a comedian Meg MacKay who I follow on Instagram wearing this Bitly Jack T-shirt by Walking Eagle News and I had to have it! PS, her comedy album “Probably A Witch” is out on iTunes today.
This is my second Walking Eagle merch shirt. The first is an instant fave because it is super soft (and both help support local talent). But on a personal note, as a young mixie growing up in the ’70s, half breed Billy Jack was the closest thing me and my sisters had to representation in the media, even though Billy Jack was a grown up, part Navajo man who knew Kung Fu and the actor who created him was white. Kung Fu was very cool in the ’70s.
And because I’m more a child of the 1980s than the ’70s, what better way to represent than with 8-bit style graphics?
