Grimace Shirt for Sale on Woot.com



This is a design I created called The Visible Grimace that is now for sale at shirt.woot.com, so buy one! I believe the name of the shirt has been understandably changed for copyright reasons.

It you're unfamiliar with how woot.com works, basically what you need to know is that this shirt will be up for sale for one day only. (If you know me and read this blog you may get a second chance, but more on that tomorrow...) Technically the one day time limit started at midnight last night, which I was awake for, but they must not have sent me the notification email until seconds before the thing went up which is why this time-sensitive update is a bit late.

It's funny to me how different people I know define when they think that I've "made it" or become successful. Personally, I consider my years of work and many designs for Splitreason as the most successful venture I've ever undertaken. Some people didn't think much of that until my Mario's Closet design went entirely viral, and a personal high point for me comes from a few big-name gallery shows I've been asked to do that I have yet to announce on this blog. But as soon as this shirt went up, I got some emails from people who were apparently waiting on me to have a shirt on woot.com to decide for themselves whether or not I had "made it. "

Not that I think I have, I just draw funny pictures and hope something good happens. I just mean this as a testament to the popularity of Woot (as of 1 pm today I've sold over 1,000 of these shirts!) I always majorly appreciate the support that my friends and family give me, as well as all the people who stop by the blog or email me with nice things to say. Thank you!

You make money doing what you love. I'm pretty sure that's "making it."

Just my opinion. Creepy shirt. But pretty rad. Congrats, as always.
