Yes, this is what we call "Springtime in the Rockies"!  Not that the I'm actually IN the Rockies - more like beside the Rockies.  But snow is part of our normal experience in the spring, even in May.  Typically it doesn't stick on the ground, and if it does, it melts fast.  I've seen snow in June before (and rarely as early as Sept)!  Now we're moving into the summer routine, which means thunderstorms.  Last week I saw the heaviest hailstorm I've ever seen -- 2 inches deep of hail on the ground!  The newly leafed out trees have been completely stripped of leaves.  It's an adventure, just living in Colorado!  I think it was 1989 or 90, we had baseball size hail.

I was looking at the red bubble store.  But the ones which have the rain have black sleeves.  Or you could change it to white, I guess, but I just haven't seen one like that before.  I thought it would be the whole image in a rectangle, on the shirt.  Although I guess the artwork shows up better, the way you have it.  Because shrink it all down into a rectangle, and you wouldn't see the details.

Is it available as a poster or print?  Then I could get a shirt without rain, but see the rain part in the poster.

PS
I'm not sure if you keep up with community developments, or if you even see the front page of this forum.  So just in case, this forum will be effectively (but technically not completely) closed starting in August.  A new forum has been built on the Inkscape website, so we'll be switching Inkscape support to that forum, when it opens in August.  We'll still keep all the tutorial resources here though, since the Inkscape website doesn't want 3rd party links.

You would still be able to post messages here, but there won't be as much traffic in the forum as there is now.

We don't know what will happen with InkscapeForum.com.  We haven't had any contact with microUgly in almost a year.  I suspect it will eventually die, when some software upgrade comes along, and he doesn't have time to do it.

Hahaha, nice one! :D

As for the clothing options.. Yes, on most of the shirts I used a character-only version of the image. I often do that, especially when the image is in a rather wide format like 16:9, which I use frequently, like in this case. Like you said, if the entire picture were to fit on a shirt, it would be rather smallish... probably looking as if somebody stuck a postcard on it.

Posters and different kinds of prints are available too.

Btw thanks for the PS. I have to admit that I don't really keep up with community stuff and haven't seen the front page and announcements in a while. Looks like it's time for another migration again soon... losing 8 years of personal history and a combined ~300k views from this and the inkscapeforum thread *sob* :D Ah well, the world keeps turning.

Not lost!  Look at the archive which an Inkscape developer made for us.  This way, we still have InkscapeForum as a resource.  It's updated regularly, at least until InkscapeForum finally dies, so we keep everything. 

http://alpha.inkscape.org/vectors/www.inkscapeforum.com/

Are the prints at redbubble too?  I looked under Wall Art but searching your username didn't find anything.

Edit
Nevermind, I found it.  Weird, if I search your name, it says "we found a person by that name, but no works".  But if I go to your profile, then I find all the works.

Yay!  Not sure if I can take a photo wearing the tshirt, but I'll try.

Haha, that's okay. You don't have to if it's too much trouble or you simply wouldn't feel comfortable with it.

With "lost" I meant that I'm gonna have to start over with a new thread again. It would be awesome if we could simply migrate entire threads, with view count and everything and keep them going in the new place. But hey, in the end it's just abstract numbers anyway.

Here's something I did to help somebody out with a school project about medieval witch trials. See this blog-post for a little bit of info and some additional variants.

Eeekk!
Huh? I hope that wasn't the sound of you fainting because of the handsome rogue :D

Here's some stuff I put together for the current Monogram challenge in the Inkscape group of Facebook. There's a few short words of explanation for these thingies in the blog-post.

Alright, here's one last post for this week. I think I've spammed enough :D A guy in a helicopter simulator (yes, this is EXACTLY how they look like!), family request for my dad's birthday.

Didn't faint, but reached for my pepper spray!

Yeah, apparently that FB group has been running contests and stuff.  I wish they would announce it outside of FB.  Contrary to popular opinion, not everyone on the face of the earth is a member of FB (or visits the group very often).  And announcing it to the whole community might be interesting to others.  They might even want to participate.

I'm hoping to get some challenges going in the new forum, as soon as it opens.

Oh yes, there have been many challenges in the group. Problem is that in order to participate, you'd need to be logged into FB anyway. So I guess there's really not much point in announcing stuff outside if you can't take part if you don't use FB. I'm not saying join FB if you haven't done so yet, but for everybody who already has an account, it's definitely worth joining this group. I don't know how much they're "moderating away" but people are usually very friendly and helpful.

Here's a simple new piece. Some elderly gentleman :D
