FASHION: The Extropian T-Shirt

The Extropian T-Shirt is here!

181K, 8.5" x 11" at 72 dpi.

I still have the original, mostly text-based file, so I can change that if that's not the right size.

But IT'S NOT FREE. Or maybe it is. I haven't decided. What's the industry standard on residuals?


About the Banner: I would like to ask anyone who uses alternate versions of the "rainforest" line not to put my name on it; if this line is merely omitted entirely, *along* with the line about ending pollution, feel free to impress others with the majesty of my Name.


Is anyone interested in the JPEGs for my "Singularity 2005" T-Shirt? That's what I currently wear at conventions - without the ugly little copyright notice, BWAH HA HA. (side 1) (side 2)

Speaking of which, does anyone know someone who can transfer a 72 dpi JPEG in "thousands of colors" to a T-Shirt so that it comes out AT THAT RESOLUTION? My actual T-Shirt looks a lot less impressive, not to say, or perhaps scream at the top of my lungs, BLURRY.

For that matter, the brain-and-chip insignia looks a lot more impressive in the original RGB 16-bit color instead of CMYK, but you can't have everything.

I consider said image to be my PERSONAL INSIGNIA, so use it NOT without permission lest the DEMONS OF COPYRIGHT VIOLATION tear out thy nostrils.

On the other hand, I don't mind people walking around with my personal insignia on their T-Shirts, practically shouting "I'm a minion of Eliezer Yudkowsky!"

This one definitely isn't free, though - that image was NOT easy to put together.
