We had it all in the '80s: Reaganomics, The Falklands Conflict, umm... Mr. Mister? Frankly it was a bit of a cultural wasteland, but not one without its redeeming qualities! Give us your best designs celebrating (or lamenting) "The Permed Decade." 

No cats, Star Wars, Mario, Legend of Zelda, Back to the Future, Doctor Who, or Murder She Wrote

No Murder She Wrote? Has that one been played out?

Cosby Show sweaters, please.

I can't believe you included Murder, She Wrote. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't just been watching it on Netflix. I'll save Cabot Cove for another day....

This shall be interesting, what with the restrictions and all. It should hopefully mean more original ideas and weird adaptations.

You know it's a great theme when you slept less than 3 hours last night and will probably sleep just 3 more tonight, but you are extremely excited to get to your house and start designing

You either have a very demanding job--or a great social life.

Actually, in this case, both ;) I has bar hopping last night and I work from 9-6. I normally get home by 8:30. So I will probably start at 9:30 and finish about 2:30

Here's a quick sketch of an idea I had. I'm not really sure where I am going with it, but I'm having a hard time coming up with something so its worth a shot. Any/all comments are welcome.

Very cool! Love the feel of it- captures my 80's nicely-just be careful with the boxyness

Yeah, if I move forward with it I will have to decide how to make the halftone dots work without making them into a rectangle in the middle of the shirt. Thanks for the feedback. Its helpful to hear whether people think certain designs are worth pursuing. I might give this one a shot.

Welcome to the Derby! 3 is a tall order I'm looking forward to seeing your entries. BTW I love your screen name, I'm sure I'll be shouting "Son of a FISH" all day now.

Danke! I'm already almost done with one, but that 6 color max is a Sour Patch. Definitely gonna have to use the shirt for a 7th, at least on this design.
