I remember that line - a friend of ours has a poster of it. And printing t-shirts (and other easily sloganed products) really isn't that hard to do. Two left-brained folks from Baton Rouge borrowed a phrase that appeared on a banner at the 1999 Boston convention and embarked on a decade-long run of imprinted items that continues today. So if you've got a good idea, go for it!There was a t-shirt the Body Shop in Australia put out years ago that said something along the lines of:
"6 women in the world are supermodels, the other 6 billion are not"
i love herb lubalin's type design. i made a tee for myself based on his mother&child design with super inside of the odalisque. but i couldn't find a way to incorporate that beautiful ampersand into itI've actually given this some thought. What I'd like on a T-shirt is a nice, highly artistic rendering of a very large lady. Something on the order of one of the drawings by our friend PeterB -
No slogan at all - just a subtle way of letting any interested party know that I'm more than OK with the way she looks. Once the ice is broken, I can supply the words myself.
For those days when I'm feeling confrontational, I'd love to put a reproduction of a 1965 cover of Ralph Ginzburg's Fact magazine on a T-shirt. It's a Herb Lubalin illustration, with text reading: "Obesity. It's incurable - so relax and enjoy it." That's as true today as it was in '65, and just as likely to piss people off. I can't link to it directly, but you can see it here (scroll down a little, it's the third cover from the top) -
