Are they of any use?



Nancy, those are very nice and clear...a little on the smaller size but they would work on a lot of the products.  If you want me to try them on the products can you let me know the relationship to permaculture so I can come up with the proper title and keywords? And don't forget to send Mr. Wheaton the "permission slip".  Or, are you just showing these as an example? Either way, I particularly like the one with several stalks of wheat! Nice work!

FYI to all who are/will submit your great artwork/quotes/etc...

You are not giving away ALL your rights to your artwork...it is rather  "non-exclusive" rights -  which means you still can add/sell your artwork anywhere else that you want to....you are just giving Mr. Wheaton permission to sell them on any stores we create.

If y'all can add a title, a few "keywords", and the connection to Permaculture when you post your artwork and/or quotes, etc... here it would be a big help.

Thanks again and God bless!

Thanks...do you have the rights necessary to sell them on the PODS? I'm assuming yes?

Rose,
They are a gesture to the title of one of the books by Masanobu Fukuoka `The One Straw Revolution`which is loosely about natural farming methods, but about accepting releasing control to nature.
A secondary theme is that individual personal impact might be small, but if we each change that makes a big change.
I hope that helped!
I'll try and remember to send though a permission slip tomorrow. I'm on the wrong computer just now. I've got a couple of other ideas....I'll try and get them in a usable format. One's another simple graphic, the other uses a nice picture of a mature forest garden.

Martin Crawford's Forest Garden. I visited there in 2018 and was so impressed. This is a 28 year old forest garden that supplies Martin and his family with much of their food with hardly any effort (now) other than harvesting.
From the carpark you can see the layers planned into the garden.

Nancy, thanks! We got your images.  We'll be adding the "Seed/Rebellion" and the "This is a Food Forest" ones to the stores....they are very small so they won't work on some of the products, but we'll try as many as we can.

Mr. Wheaton...we are looking to use some of your quotes from the permies facebook page and are wondering if you have the rights to (sell) the background images used (such as in the one here), or should we just use the quotes by themselves?

I have no idea where the background image came from, so i don't know if it is public domain or something else.

I'm not gifted with creating art the way others are and I have no knack for picking the right fonts, but here are some ideas for items to put on the site if you're looking for inspiration. I took a couple of Paul's quotes from another thread and in some cases pared them down slightly to make them shorter for mugs. I personally like the simple aesthetic of this type of mug and/or t-shirts with just a quote, and some of his quotes are perfect, IMO:
https://www.amazon.com/survived-another-meeting-should-email/dp/B01NCTTSS6/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=funny+quote+mugs&qid=1645464150&sr=8-2

I prefer being labeled an asshole to being the puppet of a nitwit - Paul Wheaton / permies.com
True conflict resolution comes from the sharing of knowledge. - Paul Wheaton / permies.com
Be okay with pissing off icky people and suddenly you have license to do epic shit. - Paul Wheaton / permies.com
Without challenges, you can never be fucking awesome. - Paul Wheaton / permies.com
Weeds: because Mother Nature refuses to be your personal bitch. - Paul Wheaton / permies.com

Some suggestions for quotes combined with art that's on this page or the art in his books:

The overall mission is to change the world. - Paul Wheaton/permies.com (With Paul in overalls drawing)

Permaculture is a more symbiotic relationship with nature so I can be even lazier.  Paul Wheaton/permies.com (This could be combined with either the permies hill art from this thread or the hammock graphic that was used in the Better World book.)

I share solutions so the bad guys shrivel up and blow away. Paul Wheaton/permies.com (combined with a dandelion pic)

Making a better world through learning good things rather than being angry at bad guys. Paul Wheaton/permies.com (combined with hugel in desert pic from this thread)

My overalls have superpowers... they repel people who think fashion is important. Paul Wheaton/permies.com (combined with Paul Wheaton overall colored drawing on this page)

Thank you for your suggestions, Sonja...right now things are on hold with the stores while it is being figured out if their policies mesh with  sustainability.

In your "Building a Better World" book there is a cartoon about the risk of a gas leak compared to the list of a wood pile "leak." It is in the chapter about rocket mass heaters. Anyway, that cartoon hit my funny bone and I think I would wear it on a t-shirt.

I have a vague idea, kinda' on the periphery of this thread.  

It would be neat to find a way to encourage or sponsor the super-talented artists from among the forum.  There is at least one super talented artist on the forum here, from projectonward.org, and I bet he could draw some AMAZING permaculture background art for you if given the right inspirational details, time and funding or encouragement.  Especially in light of Autism Awareness month happening in April.

Perhaps some kind of competition, almost like Google Doodles?  Perhaps pie or candy is exchanged for the winning art submission's digital rights?

Or perhaps a coin could be raised in a fund (or for a charity) in order to commission an artist to draw something permaculture specific (hugel, organic pool, terracing gardens, food forest), in exchange for the digital rights to their awesome permaculture drawing being available as background art, etc.  Almost like an art kickstarter, and you would get digital distribution privileges.  It's a vague idea.

That's a great idea!
I'd love to participate, but as I'm fairly new, I don't really know what to draw. I could really use some suggestion from older permies.
