In the wake of the Great Toilet Paper Panic and the postponement of Fiesta due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Alamo City artist Robert Tatum decided to make lemons into lemonade.

Tatum, no stranger to topical designs, quickly whipped up his own version of Fiesta 2020 merch over the weekend — a cheeky Fiesta logo that prominently features an empty toilet paper roll.

The design is available on a T-shirt, and Tatum also printed up a drink koozie version with help from Crooked Arm Printing. According to an Instagram post, the koozies will be given out with each tee purchase while supplies last.

If you're stuck at home trying to wait for this to all blow over, you needn't worry — the Fiesta 2020 shirts are available for purchase for $15 on the Choice Goods website.
