Ichiro: Who the Fuck is Tom Brady?

In this Reddit thread, /u/Clifford_the_big_red asked if someone would make a t-shirt with a minimalist illustration of Ichiro with the caption, “Who the Fuck is Tom Brady?”

So, I made one.

Thanks to Maggie for your guidance on refining the illustration.

(Here’s the PDF (for export) which should work for uploading to a t-shirt-making website.)

If you like the illustration, please consider listening to my podcast, Four-Finger Shotguns.


Fuckin’ A!

Fuckin’ A! t-shirts($25), hoodies($40), and stickers ($6) are now available at teespring.com/finga for as long as they keep selling. I think.

I haven’t used teespring.com before and their instructions are a little unclear. Upon further investigation, it looks like they do a print run as long as one shirt gets sold. (I bought one for myself, so the print run happens on Monday.) Then they do another print run every 21 days as long as one gets sold during that span of time.

If not, I can re-activate the campaign and the whole thing starts over again.

Pretty slick.

I miss Freehand’s “Paste Inside”. I’m sure there’s a way to do that in Affinity Designer, but I haven’t gotten around to finding it yet.

I honestly just miss Freehand. Shame on you, Adobe.

Personalized Credit Card

The bank has personalized credit cards now. They print up the card with a photo of your choice, either from their gallery or from an upload. Their guidelines are for a 840 by 840 pixel image but that’s a little bit confusing. They don’t seem to post any guidelines on the correct proportional sizing for a background image which shouldn’t be square, but instead rectangular.

No matter. This cropped fine onto the credit card. Which I can’t go back and review anymore for some reason. So no screen shot. My bad.
