At ConnectiCon, Joel Watson was all "Hey, do some t-shirts." And I'm all "I can't I am small and weak." So he says, "Yeah we know but do them anyway here's how."
So here I am doing tshirts again! Some people are really great at designing tshirts. I am not one of those people! I am much better at doing only webcomics and starving. But the way I have this set up works around that. These shirts are made to order. I don't gotta do a print run of 30 million, sell only two, and then live out of a cardboard box. (Presumably the cardboard box that the shirts came in.) I also don't have to mail them myself! I get to keep drawing both my webcomics! There is no downside. You get shirts you hopefully want, and I don't die destitute on the street, pretending a cafeteria tray is a Cintiq.
And because these are made to order, that means I can be more experimental and throw up some shirts that people have asked for, but were ideas that I didn't think had mass appeal. So right now this is a brainstorming session, where I throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks.
Right now, because I'm in the middle of moving, and because Joel did a comic about how my wife is unsatisfied by my small penis, I'm just gonna link you to his Sharksplode FAQ page in lieu of my own. All of the information is the same. It's the same t-shirt/shipping company. When I'm done moving, I'll just plagiarize that and put it on my own site. Because that's the kind of friend I am to Joel. Joel's FAQ page has all sorts of information on the high quality of these shirts, the sizings, etc. (Remember, girls sizes run a size small! Also, I don't know what that means. Check out the size charts. I will be stealing those, too.)
Here's the store link! Let us do this thing, and clothe ourselves. As time goes on, I'll let you know when I throw additional designs into the store. I have at least two more that I'm holding back on at the moment. They're not as strong, I feel, but that's what this experiment is for, right? To try scary things?
