I’m currently having a great time collaborating with Evan, AKA FRICKINSWESOME on Threadless to interpret his definitely-super ideas into hopefully-super t-shirt designs. We’ve got a couple more in the works, but here is a look at the process of “Traffic Cone’s Sweet Revenge.”
The illo was based on this concept by Evan:
Traffic Cone (see picture): Traffic cones don’t get to have nearly as much fun as an ice cream cone, so one of them decided to switch roles when an ice cream cone wandered a little too close to the street he was set up on. On the left side of the design in the street would be an ice cream cone turned over without any ice cream left on its top, and the ice cream cone itself would have a face and one black eye, looking beat up and tossed into the street to take the place of a traffic cone. The traffic cone on the other hand who beat up the ice cream cone would be on the right side of the design, on the sidewalk away from the street, turned upside-down and having the ice cream cone’s scoops of ice cream in it, having stolen them from the ice cream cone and switched jobs and places with it! The traffic cone would be in a state of total happiness, either using a spoon to take a bit of the ice cream scoops on top of its traffic cone head, or having an extra long tongue and slurping up some of the ice cream scoops. The scoops could react as if they are being tickled, not unlike when a big dog slurps its tongue on a child’s face. Role reversals are fun!
The End! :)
