Am by no means artistic, but I have fun making up t-shirts when an idea percolates. This one is in tribute to Jonny Greenwood, who recently scored Phantom Thread. The repeating note is from one of the themes used in the movie.

I thought this one would sell, but alas, no takers.

@nevets88 - Nice work. Do you have screen printing equipment or a digital t-shirt press? It looks like SP from the images.

I quick story about t-shirt printing... While in art school, I had a classmate who used to design and print t-shirts while living in Southern California. It offered a modest income that would basically pay for his consumables and a bit of his time. He showed me some photos of some of his designs - mostly sailing themes - and then came upon one that for whatever reason, started selling like crazy. The design was not much different than the others, but it became a craze for the area and he couldn't keep up. Said he made a lot of money off that one design. Then, as suddenly as it had started, they just stopped selling.

The design was basically a one-hit wonder.

@JonMA1 I have an account on one of the t-shirt services like Redbubble, you send in an image and they do everything but they take a substantial cut. It's mainly because "I want this t-shirt I'm imagining but no one has it so I'll make one for myself". And if it actually sells, which I don't expect, I'll just use that money to buy more t-shirts.

I did this one in like a minute and sold half a dozen. I look at purchases more like upvotes on social media.

Cool hobby. The quality looks really good for a digital press, but that shouldn't surprise me. That technology just keeps improving.

Do you have people comment on the shirts and ask where you got them?

I can see that, definitely a compliment. I had a portfolio full of artwork stolen back in the day. I chalked it up to either someone liking the art enough to commit a crime or my teacher throwing it in a dumpster.

Unfortunately no, so basically an exercise in self expression. :-P It earns enough  to get free t-shirts once in a while.

    • I'm so glad I don't have to worry about my kyphosis...that would be a nightmare....
    • For the jeans, I think a lot depends on the course. There are some people who end up choosing between golfing or not depending on what they can wear based on time. I play a lot of public courses that have, shall we say...a relaxed or perhaps country setting. We routinely have construction guys roll up in their battered rig, roll out and head straight to the tee (the courses know them well enough to let them pay after the round) in dirty jeans, shirts, etc. Wide range of abilities from double bogey hackers to some guys who run a lot of pars. I love these courses because I can wear gym shorts, tee shirts, and just play. I see people ranging from the above all the way to the guys with the tight tucked tour set-up, belt, etc.   My enjoyment of my personal round has nothing to do with which groups I see ahead or behind me or, for that matter, if I am matched up with them. Jeans, cut-offs, wife-beaters, none of them bother me or my round, only the personality of the people I am matched with.   I also sometimes play much nicer courses...I have been able to play the private With Hollow side of Pumpkin Ridge, as one example, and there I do wear the ugly-@# shorts and a nicer polo. I also intentionally play there very seldom as I don't enjoy the round as much in clothes I find ugly.   Which likely means the codes are working. They keep people like me who don't care about what other people are wearing away from courses where people are more interested in the atmosphere. For me the beauty is there is room for both. I have no need to play those courses and those courses have no need for the money of people like me, they seem to be getting along fine.  
    • Thank you! I see what you mean. I always want to put the club so I can kind of see/feel the clubface in my hindsight, is this a wrong/bad habit? Or should the club be in this position but I just shorten the swing?   
    • he got it from me. When I make contact with my driver, I easily drive it 260.     Inches, that is.   on a good day.   the rest of the time it is centimeters
    • I've had to go the Dr. twice since April, the clinic area of a hospital.  My experience was the same, it seems extremely safe.
