    One of my shirts is finally being printed!

    When I was a kid I always wanted to be an artist, but somewhere along the way I gave up on that dream. In recent years as I slave away to earn peanuts working for the man I've kicked myself for doing that. So a little more than a year ago I started making T-shirt designs for fun (and hopefully profit ). I've had some limited success, but nothing I could quit my day job for. That's why I'm so excited that one of my shirts is being printed on a website that sells pop-culture shirts. I still won't be able to quit my day job, but at least it's a start.

    Here's the design:

    That is really cool, and I love this shirt! Is it one of the 24 hour sites? or will it be up to buy any day

    YES!!!

    Do me and yourself one favor: Do not ever again use the denigrating term of 'at least' in regard to your work and the accomplishments you achieve from it. There are untold millions upon millions of people worldwide that would gladly crawl over miles of broken glass in order to reach the goal you have reached.

    Granted it is only one small mound in a lifelong quest. But after much arduous work you now stand atop that mound. Enjoy the view, along with a well-deserved sense of pride and satisfaction over a job well done and a goal achieved.

    Now build upon it.

    I think it looks great. Combines two of my favorite things.

    Just ordered mine and look forward to wearing it out.

    Sweet shirt man

    That is awesome. I would steal it and use it as a FB profile picture, but I just changed it to one almost the exact same idea, but John McClane/Die Hard

    Very cool

    *edit

    I was looking at your other shirts on your site and saw the Power Glove one. I stumbled across that shirt last night at Ript and got a chuckle out of it. Well played sir

    Thanks, I thought it was pretty funny. Are you sure you saw it on Ript? I submitted it to them, but I haven't seen it there and they never told me they were going to do anything with it. Maybe you meant Qwertee?

    Thanks, you'd better wear it in one of your video reviews. Speaking of, I still haven't seen you wearing that Skeletor shirt I gave you at the Power-con. What gives bro? J/K (not really though).

    Congrats! I remember the first time one of my shirts was picked up! It's a fun experience. I have one up on Teeraiders at the moment and have had a handful of others on Teefury, Qwertee, Othertees, Ript and a few others. Always a great feeling to get them picked up.

    I actually wear it all the time! Are you sure I've never worn it in a video? I thought I had...but maybe not. At any rate, I do wear it regularly!

    I get asked constantly where I got the "Skeletor Rorschach" shirt thaqt you did. Though I just realized that you have that shirt available all the time through redbubble. I will start sending folks there!

    On Monday they posted some on their facebook page. I went back and looked and it it said "Want to see these designs printed for 24 hours? Be sure to click "LIKE" on your favorites to let us know". It was in there.

    Thanks for wearing it. I'm not 100% sure that you've never worn it in a video, just bustin' your balls.

    It's my Skeletor sugar skull design. I gave away about 20 of them at Power-con.

    Ok I found it. That's awesome that they put it up there. Too bad it's getting the least amount of votes. I guess people don't want to wear shirts of the middle finger lol.

    Yeah unfortunately it is a little crude for my taste to wear in public. However, it is really freaking funny and I literally lol'd when I saw it

    Hey, I get it. I have kids and I don't think I would even wear it around the house. I don't want them running around shooting the bird at people.

    For the record, I've bought several shirts from Redbubble. They are really great and IMO are a lot better than the shirts you buy from the 24HR shirt vendors.

    Just noticed that this design from Brad is on Redbubble. I'll have to pick it up during my next order.

    Each 24 hr site has their own "submit" page, with a list of rules and such. Redbubble you can use any image size 2400 x 3200 pixels, and has it's own list of rules as well listed on the site. If you need specific help I'm sure Brad or I would be more than willing to answer through PM on here.
