"Mystery Meat"

What could this mystery meat be? Sherlock Holmes is on the case! Only he can figure out this mystery of meat! Is that a tentacle?

I hand made the font for extra frustration. =D

Oh thank you. My love of font making shows up now and then. I end up hand lettering stuff so I don't get too out of practice. =D

I've really been trying to get back to doing a bunch hand lettering recently. You do a great job of designing type.

I think this is what they make the McRib out of....

Wonderful work, dude. I really like the text, you're so good at making that stuff by hand.

+1!

LOL, I tried to make it as odd as possible. =D I probable should have given it some eye balls but that was a bit too distracting.

We just finished watching "the Thing" yesterday and some of the monsters in that could have made meat like this.

Personally I thought the Mc Rib was made out of ears and elbows. =D

I'm glad you like it.

Re: Mystery Meat


Making fonts and hand lettering is one of the biggest pain in the butts ever. People don't realize how much work goes into it, there's a reason font houses charge thousands of dollars for unique fonts for companies. Whenever a client wants something on the cheap but wants a custom font I'm like yeah shuuuure Great job on this Diana, very art deco.

Re: Mystery Meat


Pausing to wonder what mythical creature this might be, I Google image searched "monster wings and tenctacles". Don't try that at home kids, unless you want images that would make an otaku blush.

Anyway... Perhaps this is some kind of feathery Cthulhu? It's a mystery, indeed. Lovely design, Diana. ^__^

This is a very striking and elegant image, which I find ironic in a derby about meat. I am very impressed with your take on this. Nice colors and text work here.

Re: Mystery Meat


This is, hands down, my absolute favorite shirt in this derby (after looking at them all). Of course, I could be influenced by my love of all things Holmes and Lovecraftian. Striking and clean design.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • Wrap you up in a melody so you'll be stuck in my head all day, 'cause you're already there anyway.

Would definitely buy this shirt! I love Diana's work, and wish I had the money to support her when I ran into her at ComicCon.
