Making Prints and T-shirts

Alright, so here is the deal. After seeing the amount of support from facebook (thank you everyone, it means the world to me), I am going to go see what it would take to make T-shirts and prints of my work... So people can purchase them! Based on how much this will all cost... It could potentially be pricey. HOWEVER, I will see if I can't lower the prices because everyone has been so supportive of my work. This is more of a hobby to me, so even if I don't quite break even I am content. After doing some research on digital printing, this seems to be the most price efficient way to get all the desired colors on a shirt as opposed to screen printing. This is fantastic, since it's far less time consuming and can handle larger quantities! Now, the major question not so much the process, but what design to make! I am going to make a few more potential prints, and then I was considering having a vote-off on facebook. I will probably end up making a Group to "like." Anyways, if you haven't already subscribed to my blog, please please do! I am so thrilled to see that people from all over the world have glanced at it, and multiple times for that matter! This helps me to see what's working and what needs to improve. This is all very new to me, so please be patient. One thing is for sure, the more my friends give me the support, the more motivated I am to get something going! Thanks again.

Maybe I could legitimately make a cool comic.
Well now... Artist block is back and in full force... Has something to do with a over 40 hr/week job and possible seasonal depression. So, instead of actually doing something that takes time, I am fooling around with different aspects of the drawing app I have. I am an idiot, and just discovered layers... and now I find out that these layers can move... I think this design would make for a pretty sweet T-shirt... but per usual I have yet to do my research as to where I can make some... or even how much it would cost :/
Also, if and when I can even get my scanner to work, I want to also put some more sketches on here. I am hoping to have some time this weekend to really just relax and figure it all out. In any case, I will only make T-shirts if I get enough interest, and since my friends are all pretty much broke, I understand why it would be an issue... One can dream however that I could make something of a living off my work...
