I love merch.
But the overhead of even a short run of posters or t-shirts is just too pricey. So when a colleague told me about Threadless, a website where you post designs, and the ones that garner the most votes get printed, I decided to give it a try. “Kaiser Chick”, the cover image for my 2008 Primer exhibit catalogue has always garnered a good reaction from people, so I retooled that drawing as a t-shirt design. I’ve made the stroppy little fowl life size (three inches tall), and put him dead centre on a battle grey tee.
(February 11 update: The design didn’t survive the Threadless voting. I might print it myself sometime when I have the time. I like the little dude.)
