Curse you, trekmiss, for mentioning the tusk. Now I can't "unsee" it either. Hrm.

I know what you mean... I went boxy because the tree in the book always was cut off at the top of the page. You never got to see the full enormity of it. Plus, I couldn't think of a good shape to make the tree in its entirety that didn't resemble Sideshow Bob.

As for ThatRobert's and OdysseyRoc's composition comments- tried it with a shirt full of text, but it looked kind of weird since the hot dog is standing on a surface. Maybe it would work if he was drawn more in a floating pose...? I love you guys' work and value your opinions, so I'll think about them more and maybe play with it a bit...



It seems kind of top heavy to me. Maybe some sort of horizontal element at the bottom would help "anchor" things.

LOL! I love this idea! Rglee, I think you should re-sub with some of these suggestions. I really don't see a problem with the length of text, I think it looks fine the way it is. But I love this idea from o-roc, and I would love to see "happy fun ball" in the ingredients as well like Robert suggested. Also would love to see "log" in there

Eye gunk, belly button lint, and gum come to mind as well...

Great shirt though, it's hilarious. It appeals to the psychologist in me

i really like the drawing and style. i think if the water stretched horizontally across the shirt more it would feel more balanced, but it's a great design! GMV

Or it's tinned like caviar, another delicacy. But yeah, Unicorn Snuff makes more sense.

Re: Baconoctopus



There's just something about this one that I like and keeps drawing me back to it. Sure, it's bacony. But I think maybe it's the fact that it's still alive and it's staring at me.

Would the common person be able to afford this? It's just that unicorns are so rare to begin with, I can't imagine it would be cheap to buy this. I suppose I'll just have to buy this shirt. :D

But the three examples I found that you pointed out, have what seem to be imitations of characters. This one seems less clear cut. Though it is in the style of Dr. Seuss, it has no characters in it. This seems significant to me.

Especially once he develops type 2 diabetes from all of the pork fat he will eat.

This is a great twist on a classic piece of book cover art. I applaud your effort, the only thing I can suggest, would be to make the image smaller and finish the tree. Otherwise, you succeeded in your attempt.

Do you think all steaks feel this way when they're cooking? Of course, I might be creeped out if my steak popped a smile. Very funny design!

Re: Turducken



Ohhh...it's described as "A turducken is a dish consisting of a de-boned chicken stuffed into a de-boned duck, which itself is stuffed into a de-boned turkey. The word turducken is a portmanteau of turkey, duck, and chicken or hen."

I can't wait for Thanksgiving! Quick, somebody cook this up. I really do like your design, the colors are quite pretty and there's a good amount of detail.
