Good Game Cowboy Design Talk

Okay, with the Good Game Cowboy shirt launch going live in the next 12hrs, I thought I’d share a little bit of the process on how we got to the final design.


The gang at Gaming4Guts LOVES ‘Cowboy Bebop’ and have chatted about the subject numerous times. I was putting together the promo materials for Mart-Kos and my G4G show when I thought how neat it would be to actually design a shirt. A new challenge for me. Of course, as a no-brainer, ‘Cowboy Bebop’ would be the inspiration for the first design. I remembered seeing the block coloured theme throughout posters and ads for the anime. We decided that this colour block idea would be the theme. I started by building the framing for our images and it just happened to work out that Dylan had just completed brand new images of myself and Mark that were next level. So next level that they made the older G4G character art look almost unusable.

Original Design from July 2021

Some time after we received the new artwork from Dylan, finalising the look for our little group. I couldn’t wait to take these new designs into photoshop and work on finishing this passion project. After trying out a few variations and making some art changes, we had landed on something the group could be proud of. Being in the middle of putting together milestones for our charity event, we quickly decided to make a mystery tier that if unlocked would see us announcing to the world our desires to put out Gaming4Guts merch. Of course, we slammed through all of our milestones, overcoming our 10k goal due to an amazing group of people coming out to support another year of a charity that is so close to our hearts.

As in years previous, the event took most of the gang out of commission so the project would go quiet again but only for a short time. Before finalising the design details, the gang reconvened to discuss what we would name our campaign and how we would go about putting these out into the world and during this time, not only did we finalize all the shirt merch details but Mackenzie knocked out the start of our G4G website and launched our new quarterly newsletter! Together the group threw out several Cowboy Bebop themed end credit style names before landing on Good Game Cowboy which is essentially our version of the, ‘see you space cowboy.’ And with that,

Good Game Cowboy

Welcome to Gaming4Guts!

Welcome to our new corner of the internet. Creating a landing page for Gaming4Guts has been an ambition of mine for over a year now and I was able to get that done this month. I had wanted to do it sooner but wanted to wait until our fundraiser in December was completed. On top of having a new website we also have a newsletter so be sure to sign up for that if you want to receive the latest news from us! We are hoping to send out a quarterly newsletter once we get them going.

Speaking of December, we raised $10,170 for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation! This was a huge milestone for us because we have raised over $50,000 total since 2014 for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. We were so excited to hit that milestone this past year. We put a lot of hard work and effort into the December fundraiser so it was amazing to see it pay off!

We met all of our milestones for 2021! We still have a couple of them that we still need to complete. The t-shirts will be launching shortly and the money raised from this is going to come back to Gaming4Guts to help us pay for website upkeep and the yearly artwork that we have done every year. So far we’ve been paying for all of this out of pocket! Any help you can send our way would be greatly appreciated. I know that I am super excited to finally have a Gaming4Guts shirt. I have been wanting one for years!

Mark(Deo) will at some point be doing a 24 hour stream dressed as Fay Valentine from Cowboy Bebop. There have been some delays to this stream due to shipping delays for Mark’s outfit. We will be sure to keep everyone posted as to when it will happen. Now, all of the admin’s but Mackenzie(Slurms) have either done a Baby Metal stream before or have talked about doing one. This year they said that if we hit $10,000 that they would do it again! Since we hit that milestone there will be two different Baby Metal events. We are working on getting the details for those together so stay tuned. I will also be keeping purple streaks in my hair for all of 2022. I will check in periodically with how that is going once I get them in. My hair is currently still purple from December!

One of the reasons why we love doing this fundraiser so much in December is because it’s a fundraiser that we can participate in from the comfort of our own homes. If you have inflammatory bowel disease or know someone with it you know it can be hard to leave the house at times if they’re not doing well. It’s really nice to be able to do a fundraiser from the comfort of your own home. Gaming4Guts is open to everyone who is interested in participating. Stay tuned throughout the year and be sure to sign up for our newsletter so you can stay on top of when our yearly gamerthon streaming extravaganza is going to happen for 2022!
