The main design elements here were X-Faces harvested from the headers of Gnus users. The X-Faces are very low-res and black-and-white, so I though that that might look interesting on a shirt.
A year after making that decision, I finally set up the shop on, took orders (via PayPal for the first time, as well as Visa), sent the orders to the t-shirt printers, and got them on June the 6th. As promised! It's amazing.

|The most important detail on the shirt: My face||The back of the shirt|

The total number of shirts made was 181, if I remember correctly. Packing them up and shipping them off was a breeze, but I had help.

|The help: Alcohol...||...and Buffy. If you got the wrong shirt sizes, it's all their fault|
And that's all, folks.
