Absurditees! I love a good shirt that is completely bonkers and weird. Not pop culture, no mash up, but just combining things in an absurd fashion. A platypus hatching from an eggplant? Sure! A lightning bug courting a light bulb? Sure! A half chicken half horse monster jumping rope? Why not!?

Benjamin’s list gave me an idea. How about Grudge Themes where two themes compete.

Dogs vs. Cats
Cookies vs. Veggies
Wars vs. Trek
…etc.

The design can be dog OR cat…not both Cookie design or veggie design…

In addition to the normal three winners, you’ll forever be able to champion cats over dogs (assuming voting goes that way)

Theme: Anachronisms
“A thing belonging or appropriate to a period other than that in which it exists, especially a thing that is conspicuously old-fashioned”

Don’t allow Dr. Who, Back to Future, overdone pop culture stuff

Nice idea, i see a hipster talking to a pharoh in front of a pryamid and says, “you didn’t build that…”

A kidding aside, maybe we could see a resurgence of some steampunk…

Always a fan of steampunk. Unfortunately, I find producing the style challenging.

Three approaches to Steampunk.

  1. Take something that has gears in it and draw, trace, etc the real object and place it into the design.
  2. Make the gears, rods, chains and switches appear to work by keeping parts toothed correctly and proper connection points (hinges, rods, pulleys, etc) without regard for functionality IRL.
  3. Just put some gears on it.
