ABOUT SEIBEI

Hi. My name is David Murray, but most people know me as Seibei, a pseudonym taken from the short story "Seibei and his gourds" by Shiga Naoya. I've been designing and selling t-shirts for a decade now, and a lot has changed.

In February 2016 our son, Ben, was born. Sitting there in the hospital with my wife, Kate, I held Ben and cried. I wanted to do something to help other people, something in addition to making work that makes people happy, which is important, but difficult to quantify. 

A portion of all proceeds at SEIBEI go to benefit organizations that need help protecting others, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, Feeding America, Trans Lifeline, the Human Rights Campaign, RAINN, and more to come. On every product page, I'll list the organization and the dollar amount they receive per shirt sold ($5 or $10 per shirt for all new releases and most older designs), paid monthly.
