This design is sort of a tribute with a twist to Rene Magritte's "This is not a pipe".

Having a picture of a tee, saying this is not a tee, while being on a tee, adds a whole new dimension to the idea ;)

Thanks for all the comments :)

The font is called Kaufmann.

I did not know about that one tracerbullet - but while the inspiration may have been the same, I think/hope my design is different enough to make a cool tee on its own.

Cute, I agree with mchera, the shadow really is the icing on the cake.

While i don't agree this is at all the same concept as the already printed Magritte tribute, I don't think Threadless is going to print another shirt that pays tribute in this style to that piece. It's a nice double comment on the homage, so maybe submit to other places? Good luck with it!


I just have to add, as an art student: Rene Magritte's painting is actually titled "The treacher of images" and not "This is not a pipe", even though that it what it says on the painting.

it's cute, but i totally didn't get it until the "i love anything to do with golf" comment

Clever. We need more designs referencing surrealist art.
how about 'The persistance of mammaries?' If anyone does that i will buy it.
