This post is all about the story behind the Thulean Perspective t-shirts I’m selling!
Basically, when the call went out to us for assistance, after making a small contribution, I wished I could do more. I had a vision of the shirt that I wanted to create, and originally I was only going to make a few for myself and a couple of my friends. I simply grabbed one of the promo photos from Burzum.org and brought it into AutoCAD as a raster image, then used my mouse to trace the light and dark areas as closed polylines and used hatching to fill them in. I chose Cry Uncial font for the text, and found that the special “ô” and “ð” characters were not available in that font, so again I used closed polylines to make the little marks. Pretty simple really…it only took me a couple of hours in total.
I found out once I started looking at quotes that it is far cheaper per unit to have at least 50 shirts printed at once, especially with this where there are three screen-setups (one for each colour/side). So I had 50 printed in assorted sizes.
I think they turned out great, and I’ve been receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback! Shirts have gone out to all over Canada, the States and Europe. I’ve worn mine a few times so far and I find it’s a great conversation starter: people ask “who’s on your shirt?” and then I tell them a little bit about Varg and about the events that have befallen him and Marie and the injustice and ongoing persecution. Then I refer them to the website. It gets the word out there to people who would not otherwise know anything about it.
So where can I get a shirt, you ask! I’ve been taking all orders directly via email at email@example.com. They are $20 (CAN) each plus the basic cost of shipping. All profits will be going directly to Varg and Marie’s fundraising effort. Please get in touch if you’re interested!
