How about a firefly theme?  Something like

“ you can’t take the con from me “

I've been tossing around a John Portman tribute idea. I'm throwing together a rough layout right now. I'll share in a bit.

How about a "Return of the Forum" rip of Return of the Jedi? It could feature notable members in a style like the movie posters. lol

Just a rough layout concept. Obviously needs to be converted to vectors, colors need correcting/simplification, and copy could use some inspiration...

(1 MB limit! ...killing me... LOL)

Mist, John Portman sounds like the crowd favorite. 

At this point if you are willing to design it, it can be whatever you like!

So... Harlan Ellison died - extremely influential science fiction writer... wrote Dangerous visions. Worked on The Outer Limits, Star Trek and Babylon 5.... personally I think our shirt should be dedicated to him this year.... I dont think DragonCon would be quiet as cool without his influence....

Really? He's very big in the science fiction community. He's even been a guest at DragonCon before.

Nope - of course I prefer fantasy to science fiction and I don't really care for Star Trek....that may be why

I gave the art to Trathor. I haven't seen any messages about ordering. Trathor?
Title: Re: 2k18 shirt for DragonConForums
Post by: Trathor on August 02, 2018, 11:56:06 PM
Ordering now.  Get your orders to me BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK. 
If you want a shirt - contact me however you like:
 - PM On Forum
 - Text Me (if you don't have my number, ask, a bunches have it
 - Email me, it's a gmail address where the first part is kpdezend

I expect fewer orders this year... mostly from me being a slack ass mo-fo. 

If you want me to mail the shirt to you (preferred), send me your mailing address. 
If you would just as soon get it at the Con, let me know, that is fine too. 

Cost will be $15 per (no matter the size). 

Yes, I might take a little bath.  I know that bothers some of you.  You can buy me a drink or something if you would like. 

you can PayPal me kpdezend at that gmail or hotmail, they both work, or ApplePay. 

If you bribe me well enough, you can pay me cash at the con. 

I'm not planning on making many extra shirts.  Might be a few in there.

Guys, problem sourcing the color of the shirts. 

Too radical to go red?

I think it would look good, but maybe with black print.  Looks the the print on the blue shirt is navy.
As an aside, the red shirt look a bit more form fitting, but maybe I'm imagining that.

I agree. White could be cool too.
