    Having printed shirts with a wide range of riders and most recently Mike Murphy himself, my next print is going to be of me. Because, well, why not :) I don't expect it will be all that popular. But I was thinking of revisiting an older design at the same time. Looking back there are quite a few designs to choose from. Kind of favoring reprinting the skeleton art on a white shirt. But still have a thing for the samurai design. John Acosta's tail grab was a classic and I don't have a single shirt left of that design. Chad with a beer is pretty cool and the faux Coors logo on the front was a lot of fun and I didn't get a cease and desist letter. Nates outline gainer sold well. Any favorites?

    Like them all, and own most of them. The anime isn't on your list, but it's one of my top 3. Just like the design, not an actual anime fan. The skeleton and the negative line art tail grab are the others.

    I am always a skull fan. I know, they are outdated, but I love to live in the past.

    The line art tail grab a close second.

    Would you / have you ever, printed on a good towel? Your screen prints on a quality towel would be very desirable for me and maybe others

    Towels are a whole other deal! I used to print on golf towels, because they are small and don't require a really big screen. Printing full size towels takes quite the set up. Most beach towels are pretty thin. Heavier weight towels with longer loops are hard to print on with any small details. When I was in the business I recommended that customers find a towel with graphics they like and get them embroidered. So, no towels at this time.

    Not my best print, the Murphy design came out way better because I took the photo and made sure his face was well illuminated. Too much contrast in the Apache shot. Going from bright white on the side to a dark shadowed face doesn't lend itself well to reproduction in 8 opaque colors. But I HAD to have a shirt with myself on it :) The sweatshirt I printed on is so plush... but how long before it has hot sauce or shoyu stains?

    how about a flag? Many foilers fly flags, whether it be off their deck, dock, or boat. A hydrofoiler community flag to fly proudly?

    I like the idea of a flag. If it wasn't too big. I'm attaching a photo of a flag my friend made. He supplies the pin flags to Torrey Pines. 13" x 20.5" Well made. I could even print on something that size, but this is a really nice example of embroidery.

    Getting foilers to agree on anything is like herding cats... so that may be a bit of a challenge :)

    I have a weird surprise graphic endeavor in the works for Vegas night at Apache Lake.
