I can assure you that I (almost) never pandered and poured my heart and soul into all of my designs. Maybe that was a mistake, but though it sounds extremely corny, I consider this art, not just a way to turn a buck. Anyway, this'll be my last design for shirt.woot. Thanks again. We now return to your regularly scheduled programming.
Hey ace- This makes me sad. I know how frustrating the derby can be at times, especially on odd weeks when the fog is a battleground of cats and coffee again, but the derby needs you-- certainly now. Good, creative folk are what makes shirt thrive, and I still have hopes of a derby renaissance where artists support and critique and challenge themselves to keep improving. That renaissance needs artists who, like you, care. I myself have not been as active in the forums as I had been in the past (been preoccupied with other projects) but some of my favorite people live here and it's the ones that are able to just keep on keeping on and develop a thick shell who survive and grow. I feel like I've seen you evolve multiple times over the last few years and I'd hate to see you leave now. I get it though, and respect your choice. - just hoping you have a shift of heart.
PS- check your mail.
