YOU know you've made the big time when someone puts you on a T-shirt and, although some may have thought he got there a while back, Byron's dancing man Tommy Franklin has finally made it.

The people behind Salty Rain Man, the Facebook fan page set up in the wake of Tommy's success on Australia's Got Talent, have come up with a limited edition Tommy Franklin tee-shirt through Teespring.com.

The Tommy tees come in white and purple and feature a photo of Tommy on the front and the phrase "Keep on smiling" on the back.

The shirts are selling for $19.95 each and so far 39 have been sold (from an original goal of 20).

They will remain on sale for a bit over two weeks. It is not known what, if any,. profit is being made from the shirts.

The Teespring website has a base cost of $5.75 for a run of 20 plain white tee-shirts, rising to $20.95 if 10 colours are used on the shirts.

However, the Salty Rain tee shirt has a photo as its image, which goes well beyond 10 colours and is usually not allowed by the site, which screen prints its shirts.

If, while waiting for Tommy's Austraia's Got Talent finals appearance, you've wondered why you haven't seen him boogying around Byron, it's because he's on tour - sort of.

A few days Tommy was caught on camera in Rockhampton, Queensland, "doing his thing", as the Salty Rain Facebook page put it.
