My band, who play cute indie pop in a Belle-and-Sebastian-meets-Tiger-Trap kind of style, think it would be fun to have a t-shirt that, from a distance, looks like one of those 80s metal band shirts. I’m sure you’ve seen these; they’re usually black and have some totally over-the-top graphic that’s supposed to look super badass.
We’ve got a FOAF artist lined up who does deliberately ridiculous “badass” imagery: a tiger made of fire battling demons with machine guns inside a volcano, for example.
But now, after convincing my bandmates that this is a good idea, I can’t think of what the graphic should actually be. I have the Def Leppard font for our band name, but the only thing I can think of for the actual image is a unicorn riding a motorcycle.
I feel like we can do better. Any ideas? If we use yours, we’ll send you a shirt IRL when they’re done.
