I really got excited as I read about the Revolution contest and the art it seemed to encourage. This design will hopefully share with you my excitement and hope! According to some industry standards this wouldn't fly, and many people will say "...too much!...," but this is what I feel, and this is my take on what the Revolution Contest is about. There are some fun things to look at and some things beneath the surface, so please click the links below or check my profile for larger image details in Flickr.
The main prints on front and side/back are 5-6 inks depending on if you want lighter cream on top of the natural/cream shirt or just cream shirt showing through. There is a Half-tone(halftone) Bridge for larger sized shirts. A Color change UV ink Revolution Logo on the left sleeve(to balance) would look great in a bright red or blue like the colors of the design (embroidry might be nice too). A longsleeve or hoodie option would look nice as well as the kids.
...I hope you enjoy and thanks for even reading this haha.

SICK!!! this could definitely be two t-shirts. or, maybe they can print on the inside of the shirt so after wearing the shirt continuously for 4 days straight (which people will do), you can flip it around and wear it some more. no washing needed!!

Thanks fo da comments...

All the Gray colors look nice as well and were options as I designed this but I decided to go with the cream/natural, both because it still looked nice and the sweet COLOR CHANGE UV ink on the sleeve would be AWESOME!!!

Thank you. I forgot to mention something about the red thread the hand on the back is pulling.

On one end is the camel and the other end is the person with wings jumping/flying on the front.
In between is all the rest.

While i can't stand all the obnoxious Shaq photos you've been leaving in the blogs lately, I can appreciate a hella-gorgeous psycho-freaky deaky design such as this one. So much going on all sides of you yet it seems tailored to fit together unlike so many other random crap thrown against the collective wall to see what sticks on the tee.

5$

Thanks for your constructive appreciation of the design and the 5$...I'm sorry the Shaq Attaq is annoying to you and many! Maybe a Richard Simmons!? Thanks again :)
