Jason’s Tshirt on top of Google

I recently sold another “GLHF”-themed shirt on Zazzle. That’s 8 so far, which is not bad considering I’ve done virtually no advertising or promotion.

Being rewarded for pure creativity. Imagine it.

The sale prompted me to wonder how easy it is to find my shirts; there are several where “GLHF” sets up a punchline.

I typed “GLHF shirt” (without quotes) into Google and was pleased to discover my products form the top 3 results. Awesome!

So now, if you have friends that play SC2 or other RTS games where “GLHF” is a common expression, instead of telling them “my friend Jason has a thing on zazzle if you go there and search open door and go to this store”, you can just say “Google GLFH shirt”.

Did I mention Christmas is soon?

Recent Projects

Though I haven’t posted much since the move, I have been extremely active in various projects; here are just a few.

  • MINDWRITERS is well underway. Scenes 1-3 have been sent to my known readers; if you did not receive them, you aren’t on that list. Send me an email to rectify: jason.r.peters@gmail.com
  • Designing Starcraft II and World of Warcraft themed tshirts on Zazzle. To my pleasant surprise, my very first SC2 design sold two shirts inside a week, which prompted me to tap additional creative juices. You can view my designs here:

  • Compiling two fan tribute videos for Starcraft II as an exercise in amateur film-making and an alternate mode of storytelling.
    • The first is a serious “teaser trailer” for the action and plot of the game, set to my favorite track of Bear McCreary’s compositions for Battlestar Galactica. The track is called “Prelude to War” and I thought it extraordinarily appropriate for Starcraft themes and images.
    • The second is a spoof on the serious nature of Starcraft II. Leaning heavily on the premise of WALL-E, I show a lonely SCV in search of love…and eventually finding it. I wanted to see how hard it would be to tell a “love story” just using music and images without dialog or even facial expressions. (Even WALL-E had facial expressions and body language.)
