OK. The t-shirts will be ready to ship in about a week. Hopefully sooner.

 

Order your shirt RIGHT NOW at http://www.nanfa.org...t.shtml#MOshirt

I will be able to ship them as soon as I get them from the printer. Order by the last week in May and you should still get it before you leave for Missouri. After that, I'll just bring them to the convention and you can get it from me there. (If you're not going, just make sure I know that and I'll ship it.)

 

These are the 100% cotton version. If you want the quick-dry polyester version that might be printed, and if you PROMISE you'll buy it, please post a comment with the size(s) and quantity you want. They'll probably cost $35 plus shipping. If there's a lot of interest, they might be a little cheaper than that.

 

I am also selling a small number of posters of the design. Just to make it clear, I was not paid for the t-shirt design and I don't get any of the money from t-shirt sales. My recommendation would be to buy the t-shirt and get the money to NANFA. But if you like it and you want to look at it more often than just when the shirt's clean, pick up a poster. They're 16 x 24 inches. Archival ink on archival paper. If you want it framed, let me know and I'll figure out what it'll cost. If not, go to https://www.etsy.com...e-sucker-poster. They should be in my hand by about May 1. 

25% of proceeds from posters will be donated to NANFA.

A few facts about the design: I chose the species because it used to known as Missouri Sucker and is a big river fish that's perfect for a big river state like MO. I based the 2 main fish on photos I took while electrofishing the Wisconsin River with NANFA member John Lyons of the Wisconsin DNR. The two silhouettes are based on historical blue sucker images. The one on the left is from an 1884 illustration (of a specimen in the Smithsonian) that was copied in most publications for the next several decades. The skinny one on the right is based on the earliest Blue Sucker image that exists, drawn by LeSueur and published with his original description of the species (as Catostomus elongatus) in 1817. For more photos and info about the species, see my article in the Winter 2015 issue of American Currents or at http://moxostoma.com/bluesuckernames/.

For those keeping score at home, we're currently at 3 or 4 requests for poly.

UPDATE:

The t-shirts should be ready in a few days. GO BUY SOME NOW! (http://www.nanfa.org...t.shtml#MOshirt)

My posters are now in hand and ready to ship. I think they look pretty darn good. Colors are bright, printing is crisp. Please consider getting one if you can. I am hoping that any profit I make on them (and it will be modest) will help me afford the trip to the convention. They're $45 (including shipping). See my etsy shop for all the info: https://www.etsy.com...e-sucker-poster(A framed version is available for $50 more if you're feeling rich and fancy.) 25% of the proceeds from poster sales will be donated to NANFA.

I think I included you in my count.

At this point it seems unlikely it will happen. 4 or 5 shirts just aren't going to cut it.

10% of all the shirts made are sold and shipped. Let's get to at least 50% by the end of May.

Sorry to say this, but there will not be any non-cotton shirts. Only 4 or 5 people expressed interest. So if you were one of the people waiting for that option to materialize, it's time to move on and accept cotton onto your body.
