As you can see, this fine design features a drunk Mexican looking skeleton. Whats not to like about that? Unfortunately, we can’t claim the credit for the design. That belongs to the artist, José Guadalupe Posada. He was a Mexican satirist and illustrator, and the drunk skeleton comes from a paper discussing a Mexican presidential election, which ended in the Mexican Revolution from 1910. If you are interested, the skeleton is Francisco Ignacio Madero González, the Mexican President from 1911 until his assassination in 1913.
Who wouldn’t want that on a t-shirt?
To be honest we know very little about early 20th century Mexican history. What we do know is that drunk skeletons are very cool. We’re sure you agree.
While we can’t do much about Central American turmoil from a hundred years ago, we can do a bit to make life a bit easier for folk in the 21st century. We have put a bit of effort into finding companies with decent ethical credentials to make the actual t-shirts. That means the environmental and social impact of you getting dressed on a morning should be a little bit limited. We can’t promise you buying this (or any) t-shirt is a step towards a global utopia, but we are trying our best and we would like to think that’s worth something.
Either way. Drunken Skeletons? That’s good stuff.
