Your New Favorite Shirts

You'll be the hit of virtual school in your new favorite shirts. All the other kids will look foolish on Zoom compared to you in your snazzy new "Free Hugs" T-shirt!

That's the best I can do when it comes to flogging my Sigmadog Shop on Redbubble. I'm just not very good at selling my own stuff.

It's the same with my paintings. I paint them and leave them lying around, often stacked up, leaning up against walls collecting dust. The only reason I have any hanging up is from spousal pressure and disgust.

For me the act of creating is enough of a thrill, and I feel like I'm imposing on others by hanging them on the wall EVEN IN MY OWN HOME! I know it's my own dwelling, but even then I'm reluctant to make it all about me.

But aside from that deep psychological problem (and all the others I dare not mention), I do like making a little money every now and then. And whenever I sell one of my designs on Redbubble, that's exactly what I make – very little money.

I calculated that it takes two shirt sales to bring in enough money for one beer at a local pub. I have to clothe a whole basketball team if I want a cheeseburger.

It ain't much, but in these days of Panic-demic, it seems to be the only income I've got.

So please take a look at my Redbubble Shop if you're interested. You find there are lots of options (T-shirts, hoodies, long sleeves, stickers, etc.). Buy if you wish, or pass the info on to someone who might be interested.

Thanks!
