I haven't received a response from anyone that would like to help out with
this project. I feel that this is a great opportunity for someone that is
looking to expand their portfolio. These are cycling jersey's that have the
approval of the marketing team at Canonical. There are several Canonical
employees that plan to purchase these jersey's.
If I don't get any help from the community, I'm going to have to raise money
and hire a professional artist. If you have an interest in this project,
please let me know.
