Re: Super Airport Security



You know after reading this little verbal war about whether or not this shirt is in bad taste... I realized, remembering my days as a child, that those bomb characters don't go off unless Mario kicked them.

so it's just traveling and there is no terrorism in the shirt at all. The shirt pokes fun at HOW security is done.

And yes bombs on a plane is no laughing matter but last time I checked in order to move on we have to poke fun at bad things like this.

Even if it was a picture of the bomb guy already on the plane eating peanuts while all the other characters watch him... it's still funny as long as you concentrate on the fact it's video game characters.

so yes it's ****ed up but still funny and i've seen pictures like this all my life.
and the fact it's in the fog proves people like it.

so if you find it in bad taste... then don't buy it. it's as simple as that.

but on a different note... yeah... it's not on topic so it's going to get rejected anyway.

Keep your shirts easy to read so as to quickly get the message through (I fail at this alot).

There are certain shirt colors that are favorites, usually the neutrals and darks.

Above all else, remember: voters will vote for whatever tickles their fancy that week, I've been submitting for about a year and a half and have only fogged three times and had one daily print, you just have to keep at it.

Hope this helps!



8D thank you....

No I don't but I urge a fellow respected artist to think about taking action by himself in light of the potential community backlash.



But...but you're the only one who seems to have a problem with it. My suggestion would be to vote for a different design and let the community speak for themselves.

Oh, wait - they have been.

That's the point - we should be looking for people that appear to want to blow up a plane (Read: "Profiling"). The bomb is a character - He shouldn't be let on the plane with or without shoes...that's why it is funny...whether it offends you or not.

All who wander are not lost.

Consequences would be Mario & Luigi shrinking and spewing mushrooms while the flame guy and bowser in first class would likely be unaffected. Would make for a good followup if they ever post a category to advertise lifesaving mushrooms...

He did mean it as something lighthearted and judging by the # of votes it has received it seems most people realize that. Please leave it as such.

Your knee jerk reaction to this shirt tells me that you live in fear... meaning the terrorists are winning. Let's just let it be a mocking joke with some nostalgic characters from our childhood and laugh at the lunacy.

Re: Super Airport Security



Can I hire someone to be offended by one of my shirts next week so hundreds of people will vote to defend it? ;)

I see no plane, and clearly Bob hasn't even made it through the scanner yet.

Really? I never really looked at cats in that way, my cats don't really stare at me or anything. They just sleep all day and bug me when it's time for food.

Ah well, anyhoo good luck with the rest of the derby.
