Great to hear! Thanks, solarvalue.
Quoted from Zitt:
Are these the shirts you were "contesting" away in the other thread?
Bump appreciation dance:
*LOL* Oh, man. That's become a named-rule now?
Regardless, gracias for the kind words, Don. Keep up the great work with The Pinball Podcast, and happy 51st to you and your podcasting life-partner, Jeff!!!
Quoted from mjfisher:
Brilliant artwork Ryan - you've managed to capture the key P3 points on one T-shirt - very impressive!!
That comment means a lot, mjfisher. Sincerely.
Ha-ha! Back atchya, Rock!
Glad you're diggin' it, Law!
I am not speaking lightly when I say that Lexi needs to be a requisite stop if you're attending TPF. Here's how my naive perception of the P3 went over the past three Chicago Pinball Expos:
2012: Oh, that's nice. Gerry made a cute little asteroids pinball machine, but it looks like he forgot to bring his backbox. NEXT!
2013: Okay, Gerry brought his backbox this time and now there's a MASSIVE COLOR INTERACTIVE display for a playfield. Well, I guess if it's good enough for Dennis Nordman, I'll give it a flip.
2014: 710.gif Complete mind-splosion. Display 75% done. Rules 75% done. Game is freakin' fast, crazy-fun, and INTUITIVE! Instead of static blinky inserts, there were text instructions and arrows that CHANGED based on rulesets and achievements. I've never been so sure of what I'm supposed to do when I first stepped up to a pin. Not to mention that there have been updates upon updates (user profiles, user-based difficulty settings, start button cancellations, customizable tournament modes, cooperative play settings, completed MFG prototype, playfield artwork, to name but a few!!!) even after the showing at Expo, many of which have been based on user feedback(!??!). CRIKEY, I want to play this P3 MFG prototype at TPF so badly. Maybe next year TPF will be big enough that their radius will expand up to Michigan.
All this to say, make the P3 a priority play at TPF. I cannot stress this enough.
Quoted from jlm33:
Wanted to order one T-shirt, and ended up on the Paypal page, which calculated a cost for delivery for France of... $35.
$55 for a T-shirt?
I am no Macklemore...
Quoted from gstellenberg:
Oh gosh - terribly sorry about that. Our site is set up primarily for board sales, and we ship all boards internationally using Priority International, which has fortunately *never* resulted in an issue (knock on wood).
Jean-Louis, if you want to paypal the shirt cost directly to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me your shirt size, I'll ship one to you for free.
Any other international customers interested in buying only a t-shirt can also issue paypal payments directly. Just please add $10 to the cost of the shirt for shipping.
Man...cool, indeed. Go, Gerry.
There are a lot of factors: complexity of the job, response time of client, my work load (I'm also a Professor, an event organizer [the Director of the Michigan State University Comics Forum], and a daddy.), however I typically request a month or two to work with a client, but in a pinch I can turn around a job in a couple weeks. I've been lucky because for most of my pinball illustration work, folks have thought far in advance about their project and given me ample lead time to complete it. If you're interested in what the process looks like, you can see an example here: http://www.elephanteater.com/10334
Finally, I'd quote Gerry's typically thoughtful and intelligent response above, but I wouldn't know where to start. I think it's safe to say we have a mutual admiration society here. Contributing art to a P3 game would be a dream come true. Here's hoping the stars align one day. In the meantime, keep doin' what you do, Gerry.
