In Absentia

After nine and a half years in Sydney, I am packing up and heading back to live in Far North Queensland where I grew up. Rather than heading straight up though, I am taking a bit of trip down south, then west and then back up north. If anyone wants to follow the adventure, I shall be attempting to upkeep a blog here:

As a result, I won’t be spending much time on RedBubble, so please don’t be offended if I’m not replying to things, or commenting on your brilliant work. Normal service shall be resumed in about, oh, 3 months or so?

From the Back of the Closet #3

Okay, so it’s been a long time between drinks for FTBOTC, but I felt it was time to look back on some of the very first shirts I ‘favourited’ on RedBubble.

This is the very first favourite I made – Smoke of Beauty by kipishiux.

Check out some of her other work, particularly her illustration. Wonderful stuff.

Three Peaks Craziness

My good friend Sam has decided to do the three peaks challenge for charity later this month. This involves climbing the three highest peaks in the UK within a 24hour period. Sounds crazy to me, however it’s all for a good cause – the Smile Train. The Smile Train, the world’s largest cleft charity, is dedicated to helping the millions of children in the world who suffer from cleft lip and palate through free surgery for children, free training for doctors and research to find a cure.…

I’ve designed three shirts for Sam to sell to help raise some more money before and after his climb here, but if anyone else feels like doing a quick design and sending it on Sam, I know he’d be most grateful. It doesn’t have to have “Three Peaks Challenge 2009” in it or even relate to the challenge in any way

New RB T-Shirt Print Quality?

I’ve just received a shirt I ordered from RedBubble today and the quality is amazing. Does anyone know if they’ve changed suppliers? The colours were strong, the print was nice and crisp and had great feel to it. Without a doubt, the best I’ve received so far and I’ve ordered 20+ shirts.

No Free Shipping With Four Shirts?

I just went to order some shirts and found out there’s no free shipping anymore when you order four or more shirts. When did this happen? I for one am disappointed. I don’t think it’s very good business sense either. I was going to order four but changed my order back to three.
Read Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely and you’ll know the power of “free”.
