Ok, so I am not actually dead. [Feb. 9th, 2010|10:02 am]

Sorry for the prolonged break in posts - travelling to other countries and a commute to the mouth of hell and back each day (well, Twickenham actually, but they are similar) have eaten up a lot of my time in the last few months, but I have been doing 'things' and I will be posting them here. Honest!

Anyway, there is some t-shirt related news: firstly my t-shirts are not going to be available from Topatoco for much longer, so if you want to get one you should probably buy it pretty soon, because once they're gone, they're gone. The shirts can be found here, for now. I guess there are too many hot young webcartoonists out there today, with hot young t-shirts of their own to sell, but I'll show them! *shakes wizened fist*

But if you are still hungry for my own brand of t-shirt-related nonsense, you are in luck, because I have produced a shirt design for shirt.woot which has just gone on sale this week! It has an owl on it :


If you'd like to buy this shirt, it's going to be available for a little while longer from this site here.

And I will be posting stuff again soon. I ... I promise?

That's a nicely vague thing to promise.

Woah woah woah, I only promised I'd think about thinking about maybe scanning something if I accidentally doodle it. Don't try to pressure me into anything.

I don't have a table, but I might come as a visitor... that is an immensely depressing thought.

Despite my irrational fear of Owls, this shirt pleases me immensely!

I actually already ordered the Beaver and Steve riding on their respective steeds and the I <3 You ones about 3-4 years ago, but I ended up wearing them out, so I just ordered new ones. You're the only person who's ever made shirts I've loved enough to buy them twice!

Yes - there are three B&S shirt designs still available here : http://www.topatoco.com/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=TO&Category_Code=BS but there are limited supplies, so order soon.

$270 shipping costs

(Link)

As it's the last opportunity, I would certainly like to buy one or two B&S T-shirts and even endure the torments of sending them over the Atlantic to the heart of Europe - if the magnificent shipping cost calculator at topatoco.com didn't return an even more magnificent amount of $270 for shipping to Slovakia... That's simply too much even for a hardcore fan of Their Unfeasibilities. Is there any other possibility to buy your B&S T-shirts?

Re: $270 shipping costs

I think it depends what shipping provider you select - according to this page: http://topatoco.com/help/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=23 if you pick USPS rather than UPS you can save an awful lot of money. If that's still not working, try contacting topatoco through their help page: http://topatoco.com/help/
Slovakia deserves t-shirts too!

Thanks for the response, I looked a little bit closer and found out, that USPS is not available for Slovakia (while it's available for Czech republic and Austria - living in a small country sucks... ;)
While it's still cheaper to make a short trip to either of the neighbouring countries than send the parcel via UPS, I asked some friends living there if they could possibly accept my package...
I don't give up so easily... ;)

t-shirts arrived!

(Link)

Woohoo! It took almost 1 month, but today the t-shirts finally found their new home! After spending a few days in Vienna they were brought to me by my ex-classmate, whom i haven't seen for ages. So thanks for this nice meeting, too... ;))

I bought this shirt on woot when it came out! Long story short, woot linked me to your website which linked me to this blog which has awesome illustrations which lead me to choose you as one of my subjects for a typography poster assignment. I hope you don't think this is creepy, I really enjoy your work :)

You've got to be quicker than that if you want to catch an owl, I'm afraid.
