I like the concept but it seems like the joke needs something more. Smokey should be engaged in some lewd act. It dosent have to be ridiculous like what first came to mind is he should be banging a giraffe or something, it could be a little more subtle than that, but more obvious than it is right now.

I've seen this before. Can't remember where, but it's definitely been done.

Hi there,

I should have stated that this is reworking of my original design several weeks ago (that's where you saw it.)

Now it has the correct spelling and the word "anthropomorphism" on one line.

Kelseyg

hehe. love it.

redsugar

I'm so glad you re-did this. It looks so much better, and it's a great idea. I'd prefer a slightly less-neon green, but it's still a $5.

p.s. - Nealteak: Smokey the Bear has been anthropomorphized by the US forest service for like 50 years. Don't put all that pressure on mrylander! ;o)

DR DIGGLESWORTH

Genius shirt. Should deffo get printed.

nealteak

redsugar, you so missed my point. sigh. smokey's situation is just one type of anthropomorphism. whatever. just vote on the shirt.

  1. Awesome. Oh god. If this doesn't get printed I'm going to die.

redsugar - you're right...I'll tone that green down a bit. Good call.

nealteak - I agree that anthropomorpism is a wide net -- that's an enlightening wikipedia entry. but I'm not sure I get where you're going. for an anthropomorphised animal to petition to stop his own anthorpomophism is the idea.

I think the design is a bit too big & too low on the shirt...& the text just looks too standard & lack lustre & somehow needs customising to integrate it more with your illy. I also agree about the green. I'd do a dull, almost khaki green & make the grass & his pants that colour & the sign that light tan you've used.

Sounds like a lot of crits, but this is a nice concept & solid design.

weird...

Finally somebody has a very smart joke. Can't wait to buy it.

A very clever design. I'd like the text font to be different though. More 'sign like' if that makes sense.

pickasso_reborn

I'd lose the sign and just have the scary bear-man.

I'd lose nothing its perfect.

Omnipotent_cheese

Lol pickasso_reborn you couldn't have said anything more unintelligent if you tried.

emusachachacha

Anthropormorphization is a fun word to say :D

catastrophe_waitress

hahahaha
this is hysterical
$5 and I'd buy it in a heartbeat

kwcreed

I literally have never seen a t-shirt that i liked this much in my entire life. i would by it in a heartbeat.

brianna!

I'd see if you could snag some US Dept of Wildlife text. If this is it, then I'll live with being ignorant on the subject.

The original text is "Only you can prevent forest fires."

mikelietz

Yipe, is that comic sans? A new fon, slightly more pleasant color mix, and you've got a winner.

mikelietz

Sonci
