    Hi Guys,

    I'm Ryan, the 2014 Event Artist for Pinball at the Zoo.

    patzMensShirt.jpg

    Sales for the 2014 Pinball at the Zoo shirt I illustrated went pretty darn well. So well, in fact, that they're now SOLD OUT! We're considering printing another run, however that run depends on demand. If I can get at least a dozen shirts pre-ordered this week, we'll go ahead and print some more.

    How does this work:
    Over the course of this week, folks interested in a shirt can navigate to the T-shirt pre-order section on my website and place your order through the PayPal button provided here:

    http://www.elephanteater.com/comics#shirts

    If, by the end of the day on Friday (May 16th, 2014), I’ve secured the required number of pre-orders, we’ll go ahead and print some more shirts. If we do not meet the required number, then the second run of shirts will not be printed and I will refund your pre-order money in full (PayPal makes it very easy to do this).

    Specifications:
    These are high-quality, ring-spun cotton (very soft) shirts with a 4-color screen printed image on the front. Once the sizes reach XL and above, I'd probably suggest ordering the next size up (...if you're traditionally an XL, order XXL...if you traditionally wear a XXXL, order XXXXL.). I wear a Large and I'm comfortable in a Large, but I've heard comments from the bigger guys that they fit a little more snug than they're used to.

    So, that’s it! Hope to see some more of these mean green machines walkin’ around. If you have any questions, feel free to comment here.

    Sincerely,

    The shirt rocks, Ryan. Great work.

    Good luck with the limited-edition version.

    Ryan, do you plan on having gold-flake lettering for the Limited Edition (LE) version of the t-shirt? The ladies from Cyclopes wanted me to ask... GLWS!

    Ha-ha! Why you gotta tease me with those awkwardly-proportioned temptress clones?

    *LOL* I'll have you know, I'm still rockin' Roger Sharpe on my iPhone wallpaper.

    thatGuy_Cyclopes.jpg

    I swear, that image makes my day every time I look down at it.

    Thanks, again, for bringing the Cyclopes and thanks, too, for the well wishes on the T-shirt re-print.

    Take care, Brad!

    It the only thing I have (for now) to tease you about Ryan, so I keep going back to the well! I need to contact my Michigan friends to come up with some new material. And I hope to see plenty of people in PATZ 2014 t-shirts over the next 10+ years!

    What does the SM mean on the front of the horse?

    #14 5 years ago
    Quoted from spfxted:

    What does the SM mean on the front of the horse?

    Artist's signature. Cyclopes art was by Seamus McLaughlin.

    (I don't need another Pinball at the Zoo shirt, but like the one I picked up at the show! )

    It's a well worth revisiting, Brad. That art package doesn't tire easily. Ha-ha! ...and I am not easily offended, so keep it comin'. *LOL*

    The Cyclopes artwork is one of those rare times where bad becomes good again. It's so far past bad that it rounds the corner and becomes good again. No, scratch that, not good...AWESOME! I just love it.

    Tempted by the temptresses' plumber cracks,

    Last day bump. Still need a few more orders for a reprint. Thanks for all the positive feedback so far, guys! ...even from those who already bought a first-run shirt. That means a lot to me.

    Best,
    Ryan

    Alright, guys, this Re-Pre-Order is a GO!

    I don't exactly have the numbers I need to cover my costs, but it's close enough. Plus, I exhibit my work at a few comic conventions each year, so I don't think I'll have too much trouble moving them. Thanks a bunch for your interest in the shirts.

    I'll be placing the order early next week, so if there are any remaining folks with an interest in the shirt, please head over to this link to place your pre-order:

    http://www.elephanteater.com/comics#shirts

    If the button is still up, you can still pre-order your shirts.

    Once I place the orders, it will probably take a week or two for me to receive them, then maybe another week for me to get it to you. I appreciate your patience with this. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a msg here or PM me. I'll be happy let you know where we are in the process.

    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to update this thread to let you know how things are going. Payment was made and the shirts are on order as of last week. The company told me it will take up to 10 business days for turn around time (but hopefully shorter). I'll post here again once I receive them (or receive more information).

    Thanks again for your pre-orders! Can't wait to get these shirts to you.

    Sincerely,
    Ryan

    Okay, so the t-shirt printers turned these things around in record time, the shirts arrived at my house a couple days ago (they look GREAT, just like the first batch did), and I JUST finished packaging all the re-pre-orders. I'm off to the post office now, so if you helped make this pre-order happen, you can expect your shirt sometime this week! ...unless you're in Australia, then it might take a bit longer.

    The pre-order status has now been removed from the paypal button on my website, so if anyone else is interested in a shirt, feel free to head on over here:

    Thanks, again, for your support, guys! Hope you like your new threads! I sure enjoyed making 'em and it's been a blast seeing them around a few pinball gatherings recently!
