the t-shirts…
TIMBER! t-shirts are hand-drawn and hand-screened in a garage in California. All shirts are made in the USA.

the beginning…
In early 2006, artist and six year screenprinter, Chad Eaton, drew a lumberjack line drawing and printed it on a few t-shirts for his own amusement. Friends began asking for them. Friends of friends began asking for them, and before he knew it, he was listing them online for sale. This became the perfect outlet for Chad’s drawings, and to Chad’s surprise, has continued to grow year after year.

the story…
All of the TIMBER! designs fit into a story that sets a conflict between lumberjacks and their bosses with forest dwellers, including bigfoot, stuck in the middle. Each design adds more to the story, and as a body of work, have created a complex mythology involving issues with environment and labor among other things.
