New “Hawaii Entomology” store on Cafepress

April 10, 2010

So tonight I created a store on Cafepress called “Hawaii Entomology.”  The idea is that any money I make from items sold will go to support entomology in Hawaii. I haven’t quite decided who to give the money to, but I won’t worry about that until I actually have money to give. It will cost $7/month to keep the store going, so I guess we’ll see if I make at least that.  I’ve got a couple of old designs in there (“Koebele Would Go” and “Hawaii Entomology”), but I also added a new one – its the cover of Proc Haw Ent Soc 1(1) from 1906.  This is the idea that I had been mulling around, which I think I mentioned in my last post.  I was thinking it would be cool to make T-shirt designs from the covers of classic texts in entomology.  Unfortunately, I haven’ t really identified what those would be (and there could be some copyright issues), so for now I decided on the first issue of the Hawaiian Entomological Society Proceedings.  You can check it here http://www.cafepress.com/HI_Ento/7122933 .  On the back is the list of officers and members in 1905.  I might order one for myself just to see how it looks on an actual shirt.

Here are the images:

This store is a work in progress – I have some more ideas, but not enough time.  So while it might be a little lame now, I hope to improve it over time.

    Actually if you could redo the original cover art that would be a great service to the society!
