Visual Design Question: the “I Beat B. Mac” t-shirt

Published by at 5:39 am under Art,The Author-Audience Connection

I’m planning for the contingency that someone beats me in our proofreading contest next month.   So I need to design the t-shirt that I might give out.  My original plan was to just give out a generic Superhero Nation t-shirt, but I’d like to design a separate “I Beat B. Mac” t-shirt.

On the front, I think it will have something like a Che Guevara-esque drawing of me with the caption “I Beat a Professional Proofreader And and All I Got was This Lousy T-Shirt.”  That’s kind of cliche, so hopefully one of you can suggest something more stylish.

There will be text on the back.  For example, something like “What are you waiting for?  Beat B. Mac and win this shirt on  SUPERHERONATION.COM”

    I’m not that good at designing catchy phrases.

    However, if you were simply designing a stylish shirt I’d be your guy.

    How about Agent Orange mocking you with some absurd comment on the front?

    “Congratulations, Mammal. You’ve beat the wily B. Mac and his sinister proofreading.

    Or

    ” I am surly! I thought the objective was to LITERALLY beat a professional proofreader.I guess you win!

    I don’t know. You’re better at writing Orange than I am.

    Just making sure this doesn’t get lost.

    I’m off to Dreamland. Good night everyone.

    Just a reminder for my idea above.

    Hmm. I like Agent Orange, of course, but I don’t know how useful he’d be on this t-shirt.

    I like RB’s Agent Orange Comments, but I’m still not sure….

    B. Mac, you’re in charge. Any other ideas?
