Dun-da-da-DUN!!!  www.walmart.com/ip/Men-s-White…

Yes that's right, Wal-Mart is now carrying my "Vantage Point" t-shirts!  :la:  You should already be seeing them in your local Wal-Mart (here in the US) or should be very soon.  ^.^  These are a cheaper version than the ones normally put out by The Mountain, but they are still Mountain t-shirts and thus full of awesome!  Look for them next to the huge jars of mayonnaise, family packs of TP, $5 DVDs, and bargain cases of baby wipes. :D

My other t-shirts are available here: www.goldenwolfen.com/shop/tshi…

Corporate sponsorship for teh win! :dummy:

More about this:

The deal with Wal-Mart is something that the CEO/Art Director of The Mountain managed to wrangle.  Artists of certain t-shirt designs that Wal-Mart was interested in were asked if they wanted to participate in the deal.  I get a small percentage off the sale of each shirt, and the percentage would be even smaller for the Wal-Mart deal since it would be a bulk thing, thus we were given a choice about it.  Smaller royalty cut, but the amount of t-shirts ordered by Wal-Mart plus exposure was a no brainier for me!  I don't like or dislike Wal-Mart; I shop there once in awhile too.  Besides, I look at this purely from a business point of view.  Its amazingly good for my business, and right now I will take all the exposure I can get!  More exposure will hopefully mean more licensing deals coming my way and that's what I aim for.  

Sandra's "Animal Feathers" t-shirt design was picked up by Wal-Mart as well, so it isn't just me :)

Seriously, I work hard to get myself "out there", busting my butt to travel to shows, promote myself online, hand out flashy business cards to total strangers...anyone that might be interested (Sandra has been amazing at mentoring me in all of this).   That combined with a bit of synchronicity, or just plain dumb luck, and the ball gets rolling.  It has taken almost ten years to do so, but it certainly is starting to roll now!

And this isn't even the "big news" I'm still sitting on :D  (though I have no idea which will mean more in the end, this Wal-Mart deal or the other thing I am waiting to reveal.  Time will tell!)

I finally got to a Walmart, but though they had other shirts from The Mountain, I couldn't find yours, and the Walmart website says they aren't available at this time - I hope I didn't miss my chance! I'll be checking a super-walmart tomorrow. I was so excited to be able to find something from one of my favorite artists in a real store - you can buy anything online, but that's special. X3

FFFF. They always do that when it comes to wolf stuff. I guess because animals aren't fashionable to women or something. We "prefer" butterflies and rainbows. Meh. Figures. I could rant more about men vs. women in the eyes of social acceptance, but I'll just leave it at that.

Heh, nooooo. I'm somewhat incapable of having children, and I've been -happily- single for four years and aim to continue to be so. To me getting married or having a child is sort of everyday stuff; not really remarkable. When I say "big news" I mean something that doesn't happen very often and to very few people. Something truly amazing. That is the sort of big I am talking about.

I appreciate your enthusiasm though! ^.^

I work at walmart so when they came out a few weeks ago I was telling everybody to buy one and go check out your site. Ours is selling them for $9.00 And I will be honest. Your stack is lower than any of the other stacks. We can't keep them on the shelves long enough for the next shipment to come in. And if you want the small or medium. Forget about it. They sell the day we get them in.
