I am starting my 100 SHIRTS Campaign to raise awareness about my 100% creator owned book OINK. There are two goals- The first is obvious, promote OINK! A hero for the downtrodden fighting dogma and toxic ideology at every opportunity! The second and maybe more important is to raise capital to create merchandise that I can bring to shows and grow this little business so I can make more books the way I want. My hope is that this is really a beginning of something much larger, and you can be part of that story. Selling books is hard but the one thing I know to be true is everyone dislikes being naked and shirtless in public...it's a fact! I have a modest goal with a clear vision of how to grow my little empire but...who knows. If we sell 200, 400, 1000 shirts! What then? MORE BOOKS! Less people being NAKED?!
I have two shirts available at the moment which you can purchase directly through my store (that little button up top)
So what else do we have planned? One of the things I’m MOST excited about is to have a Cast statue that the amazing Francesco Fabiani who spent most of last year making all the materials to make the OINK statue, but it will be expensive to mass-produce, but possible with your help. He's invested his time and the expense of producing the original sculpture. I'm going to find a way to make it happen. You can help by picking up a a shirt!
This is a great way to support independent artists. I’m running a small business, making art driven books, if you want to see me make more books like OINK a simple T-Shirt is the BEST way you can support that effort, buy one for a friend and tell them that wearing it makes them a patron of the arts and less naked...because it totally does!
This is mostly your fault anyway, all your 'liking' and 'following' me, it's got my head all big thinking I might be able to actually make a living from this. It’s because of you that I believe this is even possible! You gave me the spark which started this fire! Let it burn!
