The sequel to Aj Michel's COVID t-shirt zine project, I've Worn All the Shirts in the Drawer, Got a Box Full of T-Shirts is another charming daily project in an effort to stay sane through a global pandemic.

Justin Hocking's daily erasure project of Donald Trump's book The Art of the Deal has been one of the bright spots of 2020. Through whiting out large portions of the text, Justin finds the true, miserable and hilarious essence of each page.
