The daily t-shirt project goes on!
I’m a city dweller from Stockholm, Sweden. Looking out my window it’s really difficult to imagine that there are huge animals like the Elk (or moose, whichever you prefer) at large out there. In autumn every year there are reports about elks in peoples gardens, elks wandering in to roadside restaurants, and tame elks hiding out on farms over the yearly hunting season.
It’s no fun at all to collide with one of these giants. I’ve seen what cars look like afterwards (yes, even Volvos). And the Elks seem to keep crossing large roads, especially at dusk and dawn.
So, our roads are lined with these Elk/Moose warning signs, and still, I have only once actually met one out in the woods. It’s not up to me to say if this sais something about how common they are, or about me needing to get out more, but this traffic sign has almost become a Swedish national symbol. The warning signs vanish from our roads in thousands each year, especially in Småland, in southern Sweden.
So when i managed to find a free image file with this popular traffic sign, my t-shirt making addiction jumped in. I just couldn’t help but open a Cafépress store with it, and put it on just about every item i could in there.
