However, please don't let me fool you. This took a great deal of effort. See, it was back on Thursday at noon where the idea occurred to me. What is the perfect image of greed... Why not give a very large bone to my dog and create a realistic shirt design out of the photograph. This, you might see as an easy task. A near moron can hit a filter button in photoshop, but it was creating the source photograph that took some maneuvering.
You see, I went to the pet store to buy the perfect bone. I purchased the largest bone available. But to my dismay when I returned home, my dog (Balthazar) was simply too large to get the desired proportions with the purchased bone. The vision in my head just couldn't be met with the current bone and dog, so I had to come up with a solution, and fast (the derby would start in under 24 hours).
So, I did the only logical thing. I began development on a time machine that would take me back in time to December of 2004, when I calculated that the bone to dog ratio would be absolutely perfect for the ultimate shirt. This took a great deal of effort, mind you, so it wasn't until early Sunday evening that I had a working prototype. I tested the machine a few times using various woot purchases that I have made over time that I have no use for any longer (not that I ever remember using them), and everything seemed to go well. I quickly transported me and the bone back in time, set up the lighting, positioning, and created the photograph you see above.
Now, after returning to the present, I loaded the photograph into my computer, pressed the photoshop filter button, and have created the tshirt for you, the voter, as envisioned in my mind. I know the artists don't ususally go into much detail as far as the work that goes into their designs, but try to never underestimate the efforts that go on behind the scenes.
