The Creative Impulse Strikes

Inspired by the Wall Street protests and the smart-ass investment bankers/brokers who apparently thought it would be a good idea to taunt the protestors with this:

… I put together a nice little T-shirt design.  I think I’ll go back and re-draw it in ink to sharpen it up, but this is the basic idea.  If there’s enough interest, I’ll have some printed up for sale – probable price, $15 + shipping (hey, Made in USA costs more, you know).  Feedback in comments would be appreciated.

*Updated above, for great justice, per actor212 & other suggestions.  I had originally tried splitting the original text to top & bottom of the image and it didn’t work so well; with this text it does.  I actually didn’t have to re-draw it; copying on high contrast did the trick.  Appreciate those of you who have weighed in elsewhere saying you’d like one of these – but if you would, please put your name in the hat in the comments along with the size you’d like.  AFAIC, there is only one size for t-shirts – XL – but not everyone likes walking around in a big baggy oversized shirt.  So if you’d like something different, name your size.  I think the XXL and bigger run a couple of dollars extra.  I’ve got another design coming later today for those who swoon at the sight of a guillotine.

*Updated again for MOAR FATCAT BANKER HEAD.

*One last update (maybe) – this one is for those who faint away at the sight, sound or thought of the word “guillotine;”  you know who you are.  What I like about this one is how it echoes a teabagger not-even-veiled threat from one of the rallies where they WEREN’T packing heat.

    Oh Jenn, dear Jenn pleaseplease make it so. I’m broke now but I could buy one out of my next paycheck. If I get brave enough I’ll even wear it to my horrible job.

    Just don’t want the artwork to be so tall that the caption lands below my navel. (Shortwaisted female here).

    Love it. XL is fine for me… I’m big-boned!

    XXL – if they’re sized normally it will be baggy and I’ll be fashionable; if they’re sized assholishly, it’ll fit.

    Love it! My only criticism is that I think the little Monopoly guy’s head should be a bit bigger in relation to the guillotine. And evidently I’m the only non-dwarf adult male in the United States that wears size small.
