I've recently been jumping through flaming hoops — in the good way — to put together a shirt design for Daring Fireball, the excellent site of developer, author and fellow Philadelphian John Gruber.
I couldn't have been happier to work on this baby. It's based on his childhood dream of being a famous daredevil stuntman, a dream he can only live out today through his website, and on the 3rd Saturday of every month when he jumps his motorcycle over 15 helicopters piloted by man-eating crocodiles.
If you're tired of your old shirts, filled with holes and entirely devoid of helmet imagery, head on over and purchase one from John. And remember, you don't just get a shirt — a purchase gains you access to Daring Fireball's member feed, and helps support someone who works damn hard to do what he loves for a living.
Two people, if you want to count me in that.
It really does seem like a long time since I put together an article on additions to the Work wing of Bearskinrug Manor. In fact, yesterday Mr. Sutter commented that I "snuck" in the Peoplemals paintings that I had put up way back in January. So feel free to check out some of the recent additions to the Gallery and Portfolio sections if you haven't been there in a while. If you have, ignore this last part, and pretend I wrote something poignant about clouds.
