A unfinished ; B a joke ; C grey looks OK on black with white outline. D 
similarly looks better with outline.

C,D mouth too big , too near to edge.

Did I miss part of this discussion or is this what you regard as asking 
for permission to use the name and logo for some arbitrary unspecified 
sum? The wording suggests you will decide what you "donate".

Maybe this permission was sought elsewhere. My apologies if that's the case.

Not that you've spent a lot of time on the design but shouldn't this 
start with saying you have customers willing to pay $14 and how much 
would the project team accept for your profiting from their name and 
hard work?

I would think anyone paying $14 may imagine they are donating  the 
profit on the sale to the project.

It seems like the $3 is a sales donation for a direct link leading to a 
sale. Do you also make a donation if a Gimp referal leads to you selling 
a Ubuntu shirt ? How is all this followed.

I am not a member of the gimp team but I think you owe a bit more 
clarity and respect to those who's FREE work and brand prestige you wish 
to cash in on.

Maybe you would like to explain better how your accountability for 
attributing sales and donations works. To and outsider it seems a bit 

I'm sure it's just your small scale , easy-going way but the good 
manners of going about things the right way never hurts.

Nice carousel you have for printing BTW. If all your shirts are 5 colour 
hand printed screen prints you should put that up front. It would help 
justify the price tag.
