The Fork Luke. Use the Fork.
You've heard of a spaghetti western? How about a spaghetti space opera featuring red sauce and meatballs on the dark side.
Remember kids. as all of your jedi moms used to tell you, "Use the Fork!"
Well thought up! 5$
I agree about the utnesil lowering, and maybe have a knife lightsaber and the fork top look lik an x-wing or something, a luke/dark vader white/black salt and pepper shaker on the side, etc. Still spiffy idea and presentation!
haha well done
Haha, nice idea!
nice deathstar! $5
I believe penne alla arrabbiata is the official pasta of the Death Star (or it's death by tray for everyone!)
Thank you everyone for the comments. This was a fun concept to do and based on the comments I think that fun trranslated to the design. I was thinking about trying to work some bowtie fighter pasta into but wanted to keep the design simple, but who know, maybe there will be a sequel...
This is really nice - I was wondering if you were inspired by the Simspson Star Wars epsidoe, were this play of words was used?
I really like your concept.
queenmob--glad you like the concept. I haven't seen that episode of the Simpsons, I like the Simpsons, I just rarely get to watch them.
Years ago, I was working at a screenprinting shop and I wanted to do a 1 panel cartoon t-shirt design of a Rebel Alliance/Empire golf tournament and have a ghostly Obi-wan helping Luke choose the correct golf club: "The four Luke. Use the Four."
That inspired me to do a similar gag using "fork" instead, but I was thinking more long a Miss Manners theme. But I never came up with a design that I was happy with for either idea.
Cut to several years later, when I decided to design this shirt for Threadless and I chose to do the Fork over the golf theme.
When I arrived at the idea of a meatball Deathstar everything fell into place (except I had to figure out how to create good looking spaghetti that fit the style in Illustrator!)
Thanks again everyone--and keep the feedback coming!
Wow what a story! :-D
my 8 year old son loves it too
hahaha man this is cool !!!!!!
i find this presentation to be confusing and annoying.
the utensils could have been shaped like lightsabers.
love meatball deathstar, and love the look of your pasta :D
