How the Trouble Started

Ok, so, way back in November of 2007 I put up my original Octophant for sale, even as the ink had barely dried after my first stint of screenprinting. And I thought nothing would come of it, really.

And then famous nerd jwz linked to it and suddenly I sold all of them.

I was briefly under the impression that the internet had presented me with a license to (almost literally) print money. I have since been disabused of that notion by the actual reality, but I am apparently still doing this noise. And it’s somewhat that nerd’s fault.

I am only recalling this because I just got my first link since then from jwz and I was slightly sad that I didn’t have any Buntacles to sell. (Yet.)
