This t-shirt features a portrait of Penny Modra accompanied by the words ‘Stay nervous’. Part of what makes Penny such a great writer and editor is how she applies the same intense focus and anxiety to everything she does. Regardless of whether it’s an Instagram post, a petty cash receipt or a feature for The Guardian, Penny gives it her all. ‘Stay nervous’ is her slightly fatalistic way of explaining this approach. It’s a reminder that something could go wrong at any time.
Joanna Anderson is the artist. We approached her for this job because we like her work. Luckily, she agreed to do it—otherwise, we would’ve had to draw it ourselves. That wouldn’t have looked so good.
This is an AS Colour t-shirt. The sizes are standard adult men’s, and they run true to size.
