'Mt. Avengemore' T-shirt design
A little while back I joined other talented artists and designers in a T-shirt designing competition held by WeLoveFine.com and Marvel. The purpose of the competition was create a T-shirt featuring the four main Avengers characters that will be featured in the upcoming movie (I'm excited about this movie, by the way!) After designs are completed they are voted on and there are different prizes for judges' pick and the designs with the most votes etc.
After submitting my design, which is featured above and below, I received an e-mail that stated my design was not approved for voting by Marvel's licensing department. Rats. I'm not sure what they weren't OK with. Maybe they thought Captain George Washington-America and friends looked too much like the actors in the upcoming film. Maybe because it spoofs a national monument? I'm not sure.
Whatever the reason, its all cool. It was a fun and challenging experience. The good news is there are still some great designs that got in and were up for rating. You can see which shirt won here. Hope you guys enjoyed looking at "Mt. Avengemore!" ha ha Until next post, God bless.
