In my continuous attempt to corner the CYS art market in every way, CYS now has merch! That's right, you can finally have your very own CYS logo mug (sorry about the funky previews) or even a CYS Triskelion pin! and you don't even have to trade your points for them!

There's these designs along with a few others including the penguin and the CYS flag. Let me know if there is any others you'd like to see. I've also got a few throwback designs in the works. . .

--- Here is the link to all the designs and you can click and view everything you can get them on! ---

If you do end up buying anything, I implore you to share photos when you get it. I'd love to see them!

Ah and here's the thread, awesome. We might have real CYS merch for future contests now, I'll have to check out how their ordering works. I know I do want a penguin mug and a notebook with the flag on it.

Can I suggest a t shirt with an ominous reaper figure, and ENDMASTER overhead in letters like a heavy metal album?

In fact, can I just commission that? I'm just gonna start using the patriotism money that nobody else seems to want.

"Touring since 2007" with his list of his games somewhere so that it looks like songs and holy shit I'm warming up to this random idea now.

I wish I had a lot of papers on my desk so I could buy something in the acrylic block and use it as a paper weight.

These are so neat.

All right, that's it, the penguin must be mine.

And whatever's inside it as well. Give them to me. Now.

I could try regurgitating it if you like, but I doubt it'll taste as good.

I love the simple and playful style you have going in the panel art, it's not polished, but it is expressive.

As for your little business, I have to respect the hustle. All the good fortune in the world to you. The Triskelion design is clean by the way. I'd gladly own a shirt bearing that image. As someone who has been on this site a long time, I have the original art really burned into my retinas. I didn't take the opportunity to comment at all when the art switched over, so I'll do so now.

I joined 2011, which was a surprisingly good year for CYS. (I mean GOD DAMN look at the top games from 2010 for comparison) 2011 was the year Eternal was published and also the Year SindriV started his Homo series. Go to the 2012 and Berka published his first games here while SindriV cranked out even more Homo literature. Why am I saying all this? The Nostalgia of the original, especially the banner, is unbeatable. That's all the stuff the old art makes me remember. It connected me to the way this place used to be. Which I've always liked. I had a lot of fun here.

However, the site is even better today than before. This era of CYS is, in my estimation, its best ever - by far. 2018, 2019, 2020, look at those top tens. How many features? How many amazing new authors made a home here and shared their talents with us? This new art reflects that positive trend..

I seriously, seriously appreciate what you did and are doing here.

Could we get the War on Intfiction image there? Without the words so we don't drive traffic their way.

War on Hypocrites, if it has to have words. It's the same thing.

Seconding the War on Intfiction logo, that helmet and quill would look sweet on a notebook. And I sure would like one confused dumb penguin mug to mix in with the set of regular ones I'm going to get for my brother's family this fall. Added to that I think some pics of MHD herself on a few things would be neat, it's a fun character design. It could fit a t shirt with a general 'woo creativity and imagination yay' theme without confusing too many normies I think.

Actually I completely forgot the confused noob penguin was Nightwatch's edit, whoops.

@nightwatch

Please repeat that you don't mind, in front of witnesses.

Don't mind at all. It was just a minor edit to the reading penguin design anyway. It'd be really cool to see it on things, so I hereby give full intellectual rights to the confused penguin avatar thing over to MHD. That should be stuffy enough to appease even lawyers :P

Hi! I get so excited watching the orders come in! Thank you all again!

I added the knight helmet and quill. . .an artsy design of yours truly. . . and you can now get the penguin on clothing!

Also, if you spot any copycat sellers trying to sell my work as their own, let me know. The EndMaster tshirt was the first victim!

Really wondering how often art theft happens there now, and I wish we could deliver CYS justice to subhuman plagiarizing filth. But in a way it does go to show the Endmaster design was just that badass if random assholes with no idea of the context were stealing and marking it up.

And I love the helmet on all these things, thanks! The shirt with your character on it looks great too, and extra fun with all the serious looking men showing up wearing it on the previews.

Wait... So someone decided to steal the artwork from an artist they don't know, representing an author they've never heard of, promoting a music album that doesn't exist.... What the actual fuck? >.<

CYS Merch

They probably thought it was a real album, which is why they thought they could get away with it. Since they might assume fans of the band would just find it from googling "[BAND] shirt" without actually looking at where it comes from...

Probably also why they thought they could make it more expensive than the actual shirt.

And then his shop gets flooded by a bunch of squealing fangirls from the heavy metal band EndMaster. ^_^

Greetings citizens, 

As you can see, admins are also subject to same patriotic demands suggestions as normal unwashed citizens. In recognition of this, I have purchased a mug and a shirt. 

Cause no trouble, glory to CYStia.

Just fyi, I've been told the shirts can run a little snug, so considering you may need to account for shrinkage when washing them too it sounds like it may be better to go a size higher then you're used to.

No idea if this applies to hoodies and the like too, although I believe @Digit was planning to buy a penguin hoodie, so he can let us know.
