In case anyone hadn't caught on, we started up a Custom Motorcycle business a while back. Worked our asses off to do it, and we'd like to get some art to celebrate. Along those lines, we decided to run a rockin'
T Shirt design competition, (cash prizes and full credit to the artists, and we're more than happy to credit any studio they represent as well, so send us your info and links with your designs) to hopefully bring in some ideas.
Not to mention, hopefully finding some artists that we can begin a relationship with, for future design jobs. Kind of an audition for attitude and talent.
We've been asked a couple of times, during our little contest, for a more specific idea of what we're looking for in a design. We've resisted this up to now, worried that trying to impose our own visions might stifle some of the creativity that we're trying to promote, However, Ms. Evil Overlord has recently, forcefully and poignantly, reminded me that you can't get what you don't ask for.
So I've been thinking, (usually dangerous) and my dream design would be a sexy white tiger chick, riding a 50-60's sci-fi rocket bike with wrapped pipes, waving a wrench or some other tool, with a pair of boxing gloves tied off to the bike and trailing in the wind. A little colour never hurt anyone, either. And a sense of fun is always awesome.
We don't want to frustrate people that are working on designs already, though. honestly, whatever you come up with is going to be more than welcome. People come to us for help with their rides, because that's what we do. We're asking for other artist's to do your thing, because that's what you guys do, and we respect that. That's the whole reason we're putting on this little show in the first place. In other words, take the design components that we've given you on both our Homepage and the T Shirt-A-Palooza page, and just fill your boots.
Now don't be a fraidy-cat, and get all intimidated, just because we're getting submissions from pro's. Rustic is good. We're all about rust and gasoline dreams, here.
And keep in mind, you can definitely enter more than one design. There are multiple prizes, after all.

Gotta say, the idea of jumping on the bikes in the Spring, to meet some folks, drop off some swag and get inked, is pretty appealing. So give it your best shot, huh?
Well that and have fun, gotta have some fun! It's like Christmas, every time we see a new design.
