No I don’t allow it, regardless of whether my name is on there or not. In fact, if people were selling my work with my name on it and I wasn’t making a profit I’d find that somewhat unfair (plus there’s some sort of Copyright infringement going on there as well). I’ve already had people illegally selling my artwork (they removed my signature) on Tee Shirts in markets in the Ukraine.
I get offered a lot to merchandise my artwork and always reject the offer. The companies/individuals are overseas and it’s difficult for me to monitor just exactly what they’re doing with my artwork and what profits I make from it. It’s nice that the shirts would be supporting your school, but they won’t be supporting me as the artist apart from the ‘recognition’ factor. You can buy some Tees from my Society6 account (and in the future, Etsy and Redbubble) but it’s probably for the best that you commission a design from an artist and give them profit from the sales or it really defeats the purpose.
