As I got a call for support of the fisherman in Mamallapuram I decided to design a two colored picture to be printed on a T-shirt for sail to tourists by the local people. I can't deny the call for help and hope in this way to give them a start as they must do the printing and organising the help themself. I believe that any local initiative should be supported to give people a chance to help each others out of solidarity there.

The logo indicates TE for trekearth as I started there the treath in the forums and my original photo is there too .....TN stands for Tamil Nadu.

At the moment in Combatore they are inquiring for the T-shirts.

!!! Good news !!! They start to print the posters from tomorrow in Madurai and they do it for free for the local people of Mamallapuram !!!! hoping to be able to enlarge this action for other villages.

!!! Good news !!! The T-shirt is already printed par Pierrot en France : Read the announcement !

!!! Bad News !!! The Indian goverment refuses any support from abroad.

What a great piece of desing, and so nice to have a noble cause. I'm glad you did this, it looks great. How did you do this? Extration? I'm really curious.
Good work, congrats!

I viewed your original photo, which is great, and am astonished at the image you have created here for the T-shirt logo. It is good that you answered the call for help, and your design is definitely professional and so creative.....:O)

Bravo henk pour la contribution, très artistique et à partir d'une composition remarquable.
Destiné à promouvoir les pêcheurs l'image en elle même est très parlante, le graphisme et les deux couleurs passent bien à l'ecran, si elles passent aussi à l'impression T shirt ce devrait faire un résultat très parlant.

It's technically a very good work and "humanly" a very impressive initiative.
It's wonderful to see how many people have used their creativity and talent for a noble cause these days... It shows how very much you are involved and touched.
Thank you and all my wishes of succes for this generous idea!

Great job Henk, I like your proposition.

mooi initiatief Henk, breng me maar een T-shirt mee van India.
Wat uw foto betreft, prof. HPP.

Bravo Henk, this is an outstanding HPP creation for a very noble cause. You distilled the essence out of your original and turned it into something I would buy if I saw it in a local shop. I hope the people over there will be able to use it to lessen their needs. TFS.

Wonderful design for a great cause. Bravo Henk.
Thanks for sharing,

WOnderfull piece of art! Choice of color & style is very effective. Modern. Sobre...

CHEER, there are those which cry (sincerely) and there are those which act;
