I really hope this one prints.

I rarely comment and I (obviously) haven't bought many shirts, but last year I had a friend pass way. He was born with a heart problem, and one he had many, many surgeries for over his life. He went in for his "final" surgery to fix an issue that he had lived with all his life. The surgery went very well. He was in the recovery stage, out of ICU, and then suddenly, abruptly, died one afternoon. He was only 28.

For his funeral I made a senbazuru (one thousand paper cranes), with the help of a lot of folks. It's how I got to really know his family, and how they got to know me. He was sort of a black sheep, so this really makes me chuckle in so many varying ways. Fingers crossed this goes all the way to the top.

Easy, no. I had very little sleep that week coming up to the funeral, but once I got there it was so worth it. Everyone said it was beautiful, and the whole family really loved it.

It's apparently still hanging in his old bedroom at his family's house. Traditionally they're hung up outside, and just allowed to deteriorate with wind/water/whatever, so they say they're just gonna leave it up until it falls apart. I was really flattered.

Brilliant. I fold these all the time when I'm bored and there is paper around. Programs, gum wrappers, old post-it-notes... you name it. So should this print, I will buy it and wear it with these, with pride!

yes it is beautiful - and a sad and moving story behind it.
just like the film 'Black Swan' nominated for the Oscars another sad and moving story.
I wish you luck on this design

Augh, this totally breaks my heart. Please contact me somehow if you print this shirt elsewhere, I will buy it.

Love this tee shirt, similar in theme to Vincent Van Gogh's the Iris.

Re: Black Swan



I get that I'm really late on this but I hate when beautiful shirts like this don't print. I would be all over this.

But hey, we got one with Zombies. That's original.
