Giulia’s DS106 Shirt, 2nd. Edition

“Giulia’s DS106 T-Shirt, 2nd edition,” art remix by @giuliaforsythe

After five years of tender loving use, Todd Conaway (@Todd_Conaway, on Twitter) lovingly parted with his official Limited Edition Giulia Forsythe DS106 T-shirt.  Todd’s shirt,  available exclusively through the 2012 DS106 Kickstarter campaign by Jim Groom (@jimgroom), had accumulated too many additional holes where there weren’t supposed to be holes.

A quick query to Giulia (@giuliaforsythe, on Twitter) prompted her immediate reply with a link to her original artwork.

It was a little photoshop work for me to prep the image to print white on transparent (essentially, remove the black) so that the shirt colour takes the place of the black, as with the Kickstarter original, but the design is now posted to the ds106zone store on Zazzle.

If, like Todd, you are in need of replacement, you can now get one. If you didn’t have an opportunity to get one in 2012 and would like one now, you can get this 2nd edition release now.

Zazzle will let you choose an alternate colour (as shown above) and cut (women’s fit, long sleeves, etc.) I let Zazzle notify me of their sale events, and try to order things when they are at a nice discount.

T-shirts are available today (July 29th) from the .com store at 40% off with the code SUMMERHOORAY

The DS106zone store is at and you can link to the shirt directly here: Giulia’s DS106 T-Shirt, 2nd edition

Flex Your Creative Muscles with the Daily Create Summer 2017 T-Shirt

“The new Daily Create Summer 2017 T-Shirt,” design and GIF by @aforgrave

It’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since The Daily Create – Summer 2014 T-Shirt, but time flies when you’re having fun!

In response to Alan Levine’s (@cogdog, on Twitter) DS106 June 2017 30-Day Daily Create Challenge, I’m getting my creativity tools all splayed out on my desk in preparation for June, and the summer months beyond.

The Daily Create for today, June 1st, 2017 is #tdc1970, which revisit’s the skinny-kid-on-the-beach comic book ad and provides the prompt, “Charles Atlas, Charles Schmatlas. My Creativity is bigger than your muscles.”  The description continues with “Make this uncreative skinny kid a blossoming portrait of creative prowess! Show us your creative muscle, your photographic bicep, your video burpee (for the love of our eyes, do not take this literally, think metaphorically!)

Rather than re-visiting the old comic directly, I decided to get things in place with a newly updated T-Shirt that community members could wear while flexing their creative muscles (whether on a beach, or simple thinking about one).

The original 2014 shirt was a fun project because it gave me a challenge of selecting some appropriate icons from The Noun Project to use in representing the 5 create types — drawing, audio, photography, writing, and video.  I liked the clean design then, but was conscious that some new create types had emerged over the past three years, and relished the opportunity to source some additional icons for design, remix, and GIF.

The updated set of icons, representing eight different types of Daily Create categories, are presented on the back of the T-shirt, along with the newish URL which changed from to on September 3rd, 2015.

I also decided to update the front of the shirt, changing the message from “Keep Calm and Create On” to “Keep Calm and Make Art.”

I’ve posted the shirt design to The DS106 Zone store on Zazzle, where you can select a shirt fit and colour to suit your own tastes. The white-text is designed to reverse out of a darker coloured shirt, so you can’t have this on white, I’m afraid. Colour is more fun anyway!  There’s a GIF in the sidebar that shows some shirt styles in different colours, with links to guys and gal shirts to get you started. You can swap the shirt style to many different cuts and fits. Go wild! But Make Art!
