The challenge was
Create a t-shirt design inspired by The Simpsons.
Hi-diddily-ho, neighbors! Sharpen those yellow pencils and get ready to pay homage to Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, or anyone else who calls Springfield home to help us honor the 25th anniversary of The Simpsons.
Your challenge is to create a t-shirt design that celebrates any aspect of The Simpsons, from Homer’s bumbling slapstick to Sideshow Bob’s dastardly evil.
Choo-choo-choose one character or several for a design that will make Homer shout “Woo hoo!” Set all four fingers to work on a perfectly cromulent design; if you’re lucky, your tee might be sold as far away as Brockway, Ogdenville, and North Haverbrook!
