Inside the actor's studio

I worked out the other day that for every tshirt I design, there about 13 abandoned (and finished) concepts. Here is the Halloween shirt design you won't be able to buy, it is called "Ghost Uncle" and it illustrates exactly why someone who spends most of his time trying to make wordy and elaborate stories about land sharks and caravan parks shouldn't attempt a simple graphical motif without the supervision of an adult.

I think this is what happens in peoples dreams if they leave songs like Birdie Brain and Blueberry Boat on when they go to sleep.

Well, I couldn't see myself wearing it, but it is perhaps the cutest thing I've ever seen.

yeegods that's horrid.
my "bears will eat you" shirt has recieved a plethora of positive comments from the patrons of the tabletop gaming store at which i work. perhaps you should keep to overstating the obvious.

I'm about as cool with that as you'd expect me to be. Not very.

My collection of Scarygoround t-shirts has become known as "the health warnings" in our house. Mostly because the first two I bought were "Bears will eat you" and "Vampires are biting danger".

Very uncool to sell other people's art, methinks.

i wasn't thinking about selling it. i wanted it for myself. i think it's one of the coolest designs you've done yet, but you said you'd never make a shirt of it. oh well, working on deleting it. *shrug*

I tried to email you, but it got sent back to me...
I really didn't mean to make you mad. I didn't realize that the shirt would be up for sale, I just wanted to make it visible for you to see. Like I said, I had no intention of selling it; honestly, I just wanted it for myself. I’ve deleted it, and I really feel like a complete shit (excuse my language). I’m so sincerely sorry, I can't say that enough. I love your comic more than pretty much anything and I would hate to have
upset you by doing something so completely boneheaded. This sounds kind of silly, but can you forgive me? (I’m actually totally frazzled over this whole deal! Please say you forgive me!!!!!!!!)
