This poster is more of a storytelling piece and shares the journey of second-hand clothing through the unique perspective of a single t-shirt. I wanted to create a sense of movement and emotion as the viewer experiences the journey of this t-shirt from an apartment in New York to a dirt road in Africa. The story is hand-written and placed among the images of the journey, giving it a sort of 'open storybook' sort of feel.
Her name was Susie. She bought me to work out in. So strong and durable I was back then. One day, I found myself stuffed into a garbage bag. I was thrown into a big pile, in a musty basement. But, I guess they didn't want me there. So I was taken away and squeezed in to another bag. Then it was dark - for a very long time.....
When my bag was opened, I could tell I was in a different place. They called me "second rate" and I was carried away once again. It was hot and dusty and I was spread out flat in the sun. One day an old man picked me up and took me me with him. He said I would bring him luck....And I did.
It's nice to be wanted again.
