This happened last June, 2021, at a Fathers Day event a cigar shop in town throws annually. The owner asked if I could roll during the event and I said sure!
I made puritos of the fillers I used for people to walk up and taste one or two. I believe I made 10 of each, so 30 total. They were gone by the end.

I made info signs, which I enjoyed more than the event honestly. I know now, that event rolling is not my thing, haha, I would've rather just be hanging out. The owner asked what I wanted at the end and name anything at the shop I just asked for 5 of the new Undercrown and that was that. With all the talking and chit-chat, I was only able to wrap 10 cigars, which I gave away to interested and respectful viewers.

I liked these drawings a lot, so I made a t-shirt for myself after a few months of thinking about it.

Sounds like a cool experience and I'm sure everyone was grateful for your generosity. The signs and Illustration are awesome. You will certainly have to design yourself some cigar bands in the future. Did you draw right on the shirt or is it a print? I really like the feel of it either way and it looks much better than what I've been able to accomplish brushing on fabric.

I actually made the shirt through https://www.printful.com, for like $20. No minimum order, really easy, drag and drop graphics on your shirt, mug, sweatshirt, whatever, place order and you got yourself a product with your stuff on it.

If you configure your design as an item for sale on the printful.com site [which handles the display, sales, print-on-demand, and shipping to purchasers] then I can include a link for it in the FTT custom items thread:


(I believe that over the decade since I created all those purchasable FTT items on cafepress.com, the gazillion listed items have cumulatively generated less than $10 profit. So, unless you set a price that is crazy high, don't expect a meaningful profit. But some other members might be interested in ordering what you've created.)
