Since my introduction of Welcome to the Dungeon on social media, I had mentioned in my comments about it that I was playing around with the concept of the piece being on a t-shirt. After my initial post, I went ahead and put a call out to a large handful of my fellow artistic friends for their opinions and recommendations of what systems/websites they use to get their work available to customers in between conventions they're apart of. That led to several suggestions and hours of reading policies, looking at how the staff interacts with the artists using their system, and the co
