Two short stories & assorted bits!
‘Widows’, penned by Rantz Hoseley, first published in Awesome 2: Awesomer. ‘Honolulu Lorie’s Lava Love Lounge and Poodle Emporium’, was meant for Popgun 3 and ended up published in Popgun 4. It was a bit of silly I wrote on a cocktail napkin and then played around with for a few years. + More! Going to be trying the smaller 22-26 page digest size out for a few issues, keep them shorter and cheaper. Let me know if you like the format.

My Søciety6 Line.
Søciety6 is a creator oriented, high quality print on demand service for art prints, posters, shirts, Iphone cases and laptop skins. They also have some kind of retialer network going, sounds good. I’m looking forward to is the option to get a large stretched canvas version or framed pint in the 26″ X 38″ size range, but each image can be purchased on any of their item options. They use reputedly only the best of the best and ethical. so you can purchase with a clean conscious. I always liked it when Mr. Rogers took you to places where they made things, in the spirit of that you can watch their factory at work in this clip, check it out, and click on any of the items bellow to go to my Søciety6 shop!
I’ve also set up shop on zazzle.ca, where you have an incredible amount of flexibly to edit and customize your item.
The down side of that is I can’t make you any warranties about where the shirts or other merchandise are manufactured or how. They do use american appeal, so that’s an option. I’ll look into them some more in the future but for now buyer be aware.
As for the quality, it’s not bad at all! I’ve made a few things for myself to test them out. As they claim, it’s professional grade merchandise. Their printed shirts don’t look exactly the same as silk screen shirts do, more like the images on photographic fabric prints like those [now retro] 70s shirts I grew up with. The ink is in the fabric rather than on it? But it looks good and i like them because I find they breath better than silk screen T’s do under larger full colour image areas. I’m confident the images i’ve selected will look very good on you, and i’ve left most set with the option for you to go in and resize and position the art to your tastes if you like.
So far I’ve set up 22 cool original shirts available in a wide selection of styles. But you can get something printed on just about anything via this company, from dishes to bags to phone cases of all kinds to do-dads and thingamadoodles. So something I’m offering via Zazzle is limited edition made to order items. You can order a sketch, or illustrations from me, [see the bottom of the page for my rates], and have them printed on whatever you like from the Zazzle catalogue! Or maybe you want a new business card? After we design it if you like it could be produced and shipped to you via zazzle.
I’ll be experimenting with different designs and items, check back in for things to your taste, or make a request! These sites make fabrication stupid easy so within reason, anything could be arranged. So yes, if you have a custom item you’d like to have contact me about it.
