    A nice surprise seeing my Ukelution shirt listed.

    Being a long time visiter to boing boing I am aware of, and absolutely adore Amy Crehore’s work. Her paintings contain (nearly) all of my favourite things…

    Monkeys- Check
    Nudie Ladies – Check
    Ukuleles – Check
    Cats – Check

    I will be first in line for one of her Uke T-shirts when they’re available. Its the closest im going to get to owning some of her art.

    Are your Ukelution shirts available to buy anywhere?

    That was my first shot at a type of screen printing, but I do plan on selling them eventually. Hopefully, within a few weeks.

    zym: Being a big fan of three of those four things, you’ll have to beat me to first in the queue.

    Alison: Let me know when you do start selling them.

    Alison, once those shirts are available for sale, could you send me an email?

  7. Alison January 20th, 2008 2:56 pm

    Woodshed and Minamin, I’ll let you both know once they’re available.

    Thanks for mentioning ukulele underground. We’re still working on getting our videos to play smoothly for everyone. Hopefully we’ll have it down by the end of the week.

    You’re welcome, Rayan. I’m looking forward to seeing more on the site. The videos have been working perfectly for me.

Got something to say?
