Sorry, seemed from your whole post that none of Lee's suggested marketing
methods appealed to you.

Well, t-shirts and mugs are simply a lower grade, higher volume market that is
consistent with the numbered prints market. My favorite tie is one with a
reproduciton of Munsch's 'The Scream' on it (which I wear for weddings... ;p).
Licensing your artwork to t-shirt, mug, tie, greeting card, poster, beach towel,
and boxer shorts manufacturers is simply one more revinue stream to exploit with
your artwork.
