Vectored. Please see my last post for the context of this odd line from our Constitution.

“Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.”

Damn. Article 1 Section 1 of the Constitution just says that legislation shall be made by a Congress, made up of a Senate and a House of Representatives. Then, Section 2 jumps right into how to fairly count the populations of the individual states to determine how many representatives they have. Including the contritely vague addressing of enslaved individuals as essentially three-fifths of a person. The south, worried that its states might be unfairly represented in Congress without the inclusion of slaves as part of the population, struck a deal to count them, but no one could go so far as to agree that they should be counted as a whole person. Unreal.

That anyone wonders why people of color would question their perceived value in this country is naive and willfully ignorant. We wasted no time assigning a lesser-than value to them at the very top of the nation’s founding documents.

Roughing out the next #ConstitutionalCartouches joint. Spoiler alert: this shit gets weird quick, y’all... 📜

Another side project. 🙄

I’ve created lettersofrecognition.tumblr.com. Name recognition can be everything in politics. Take Donald Trump—no please. Take him. Anywhere but here. Democrats need to reclaim congress in 2018 for us to have any hope of regaining some semblance of the progress we've made as a country over the last decade. I'll try to highlight swing district challengers and other important 2018 contenders, along with infinitely shareable artwork of their names, in hopes of making them familiar to as much of the voting public as possible, come election time. - - -

Beto O'Rourke (D) is currently a member of the U.S. House representing Texas’ 16th Congressional District, and is running in 2018 to unseat Ted Cruz in the U.S Senate.

Many of these posts will more often be candidates running to take over spots in the House, as it is much more within reach for Democrats this mid-term election, but tough as it may be, there are few causes that feel more worthy than getting Ted Cruz out of Congress.

Beto is from El Paso, TX, and believes healthcare is a right, not a privilege. He’s also fighting hard to keep big money out of our democracy, and end political gerrymandering. “Voters should pick their representatives, not the other way around.” Find out more about Beto, and get involved — https://www.betofortexas.com

Also, hear him on a great episode of Jon Lovett’s live podcast show Lovett or Leave It.

Gettin chunky over here.

This is not one of those daily projects, FYI. #ConstitutionalCartouches

The lettering cartouche is one of my absolute favorite things to design. I’m starting a little side project to both practice more of these, and also study the U.S. Constitution more closely. Here’s today’s — “We The People”

The opening words of the preamble, which at the time of its writing, really only meant native born white men. 😕

Tough loss at the first game, but he had fun!

One of my favorite things I’ve ever designed. Green ink vines busting out of a gold foil cartouche. #cottongram

If you’ve been under a rock lately, you might not know that @cottonbureau has put in a TON of work, making truly better blank t-shirts for women and men from scratch. We got to try them on when we were there on the tour, and they’re really something special. They’ve raised over $90k toward their $48k goal on Kickstarter, but you should still back them before 8PM ET tonight so you can be first to get these amazing shirts!

Just search for Cotton Bureau on Kickstarter now! #BlankbyCB
