My latest shirt design is up for voting now, so head over and vote!
For whatever reason I wasn't sure if this one would be received very well or not, but so far the comments seem to be quite positive. Personally this is among my favorite shirt designs I've ever done, so obviously I hope it gets printed! I think part of the reason I like this one so much is that it appeals to my weird affinity for making ads and branding for fictional products. Well-known examples of fake brands include Big kahuna Burger in Tarantino movies, Nails Cigarettes in Kevin Smith Movies, and Krusty-O's, Squishees, and about a thousand other things in The Simpsons. In fact, I saw an interview once where Matt Greoning also expressed a fascination with creating brands to populate his cartoon universe. He even said his desire for wanting to make an animated show came from realizing that you could have cartoon characters sit and watch other cartoons in their living room (an idea that manifests itself on the show as Itchy and Scratchy.)
Designing this kinda stuff for movies seems like it would be a great job.
