We also can't forget to mention the just jingle-balls out voting that's been going on over on the T Shirt-A-Palooza page! Great to see everyone digging in and fighting for their choices. So let's keep the votes and the designs coming! At least $500 in prizes to be won, (and that's cold hard cash, McDuck, not ebucks or magic store-credit beans)!
For those of you just tuning in, here are the results, so far:
Figured it would be pretty cool to get a design nice enough to both represent the business, and maybe use for a tattoo piece.
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.
Speaking of which, enjoy the Season folks. This can be a crazy-busy, stressful, time of year. So eat, Drink heavily, self-medicate, stuff each other's stockings and be merry. Because Christmas is Fun, Goddamnit !! :)
