New Skyline Fever in honor of my dad >>>

As many of you know from reading my blog, my father decided to take his own life this past year.  A little while back, I designed my next tattoo in his honor.  I drew up this handsaw, one that he had made himself, since he was a woodworker.  James and I decided to make it our next Skyline Fever design as well in honor of my dad.  He loved that James was doing his own thing creatively with his shirts, so I think its only appropriate.  He would of loved it.  We have decided to donate $5 for every one of these shirts sold to a suicide prevention foundation.  We are still researching which one, so if you know of any please let us know.  Until we decide, we will just set aside the money from each sale, and then send it in once we have decided.  All sizes are now listed in his shop.  James also created a facebook fanpage for his Skyline Fever shirts if you want to stay posted on what is new, you should follow him :)

P.S.  I cannot thank you enough for all of the love on my new lookbook.  It was a joy to create!  Thank you.

  3. I'm so sorry about your dad, miss. My mom (kind of) did the same and my wife almost committed suicide a few times since we've been together, mostly due to her depression and not being on medication at the time. Suicide is such a scary, real thing for those who know people who have, or have tried, to commit suicide. *big hug* What you're doing is such a sweet thing and I know your dad would be proud of you both.

    Your design is GORGEOUS. YOU should be proud as well.

  4. I think that is wonderful. The design is beautiful! I will be buying one for myself, and for a my friend who went through this very same thing with her mother last year.


  5. This is wonderful. It's inspiring to see what you are doing with your Dad's passing. I love the sentiment with the shirt as well. I don't know any direct suicide prevention groups, but do know of Jeremiah's Hope for kindness, which is a non-profit based on a boy who committed suicide due to school bullying.

    Beautiful blog and I'm excited to visit again and again. x

  6. This is beautiful... the reasoning for it and the design itself. I think I'm going to have to get one in the near future and what a great cause to support. hugs

  7. I love this--both the shirt and the cause. It's great that you are in a position to raise a lot of money for something you believe in so much. : ]

    The only organization I know of is one that probably many many people know of--To Write Love on Her Arms. Here's their vision, if you're not familiar with it: http://www.twloha.com/vision/

  8. It's beautiful Laura. And a wonderful tribute. Jeff was a carpenter too. He would have loved this shirt.


  9. P.S.--Laura, what size shirt are you wearing in this picture? I should be able to guesstimate which size to get if I know this. : ]

  10. Beautiful Laura x Me & my mum are planning to launch a t-shirt line this year with my step-dads artwork on as he died almost four years ago.

  11. beckie, im wearing a size medium :)

    charis, i think that is so awesome that you and your mom are doing that together, wow! love it!!!

  12. laura,
    these are awesome.
    i have a friend who is starting a project for suicide awareness/hope.
    she's photographing suicide survivors and giving them a platform to share their stories.

    it's called "live through this" or LTT. you can check it out here:

    what you're doing to honor your dad is such a wonderful thing. best of luck.


  13. I love this design...and the lookbook...and just everything you do! I wish you so much success in your goals of supporting a suicide prevention support org. I heart you so. Hearts, janna lynn

  14. Hi Laura, I just recently started following your blog. Your work is stunning and always brings a smile to my face and loads of inspiration. This past fall I lost a dear friend to suicide. A large group of his friends walked in his honor at the Out of the Darkness event. They seem to be a great organization that lends support to a lot of people. Sending you love and light in your journey. Joanna

  15. Forgot to post their link:

  16. What a beautiful tribute to your dad. Thank you so much for sharing. I'm very interested to hear what foundation you choose.

    XoXo S.

  17. The design is beautiful... hermoso!!! And above all, I love the motivation behind it and the love and support you guys want to spread. We, as a family have also lost people close to us, I sometimes wish there were more people like you in Mexico... best of luck and a big abrazo! xo

  18. I have two family members who took their own lives, I am so sorry for your loss... You should look into- To Write Love on Her Arms. It saved my life. Such an amazing nonprofit...


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
