Well-travelled wears

October 6th, 2009

So I was all stoked about my first t-shirt sale to France last month… and then last week, the photos below landed in my inbox:

I’ve mentioned my Uncle Carton here before… Well, that’s him in the red. He kindly supported my hare-brained scheme, ordered shirts for his entire family, and then did photoshoots with everyone wearing the new tees during their vacation. The first pic includes my Aunt, my cousin and his wife, and their adorable son — and was taken at the Tokyo Disneyland. The second pic is Uncle Carton with his son-in-law, in front of the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai. How touching is that?

I also recently made my first sale to the UK. It was a particularly humbling sale because the customer is one fine and talented artist. Her name is Katriona Chapman and we met on twitter. She’s got some mad illustration skills — check out her website here. When the package landed, she kindly posted this:

It’s surreal to think about these tees being worn in other timezones. If I ever make a sale to Australia or Santorini, I’ll have to see what I can do about making it a hand-delivery…
