Those Diesel Sweeties

diesel sweeties

I’m probably one of those Canadians that are likely not to scream to the world about where I’m from (unless I’m outed by an “eh” that slips out every once in a while). But when Christina who apartment sat in NYC w/ Maddie while I was away and came to visit me at Renegade for lunch, I couldn’t help but smile at the t-shirt she was wearing. It was a red shirt with a pixeled maple leaf. She ordered it from diesel sweeties, a really cool t-shirt company that has a lot of shirts in the theme of pixel art. In addition to the shirts, the site tries to include comics with the characters wearing the shirts. I’m a huge fan of the pixel based grid, if someone can convey meaning within the constraints of 16 px x 16 px, it’s something that I consider to be a talent. So hey, if there’s a company that can do something that says Canada in a cool way, I’d be happy to show where I’m from.

Check out the shirts at www.dieselsweeties.com/shirts/allshirts.shtml and thanks Christina for making Maddie one happy weimaraner while we were away!

    Umm… The comic came first, and it’s nationally syndicated now, too.

    The shirts are cool though.

    I’m with you, Michael. I rarely need to scream out my nationality. Even all those times I traveled overseas, I never once felt the need to put a maple leaf on my backpack to make it clear I was not American, but this shirt says it in a way that makes me happy and proud.

    As for that dog of yours, I couldn’t have asked for a better companion in New York. She really made it feel like home. Neither my nights nor my days were lonely. You’ve got one fantastic hound there. But don’t let it go to her head now!

    thanks for the fyi Candice – I’m glad to see that I’ve been corrected

    well Christina, Maddie’s head has already grown larger after seeing her pics on your site – she’s got a serious ego now

    : )
