VIDEO: Ian Kamau – Making the ‘One Day Soon’ Tee

THE STORY: I had a few shirts made up for myself in the fall, one of them simply said “One Day Soon” the title of my most recent album. I did a show for Canadian Music Week that was curated my Shad and decided to wear it that evening. After the show two people, a guy and a girl, came up to me and asked if I had shirts to sell. I told them that I had just got it made up for myself and we spoke about the idea of ‘One Day Soon’ being about hope and asked them if I made some would they purchase them; they said yes. I decided to put the question out to a few more people, “if I made these shirts.. would you want one?” and within 48hrs had about 50 orders. I called my friend Javid; an artist and architecture student who started a social screen-printing and mural business called Under The Radar out of the youth space (The Loft) at Christie-Ossington Neighbourhood Centre in downtown Toronto, and asked if he could screen print the shirts for me. This is the video of his process (which I’ve never seen before).

Order ‘One Day Soon’ shirts by sending and email to with your size, style (male crew-neck or female v-neck) and colour (black on black or red on white) $25 plus $5 shipping. CLICK HERE to order the album (digital or physical copies).
