One day at my friends house – he told me he had a funny idea for a shirt and shared the idea of Javasaurus, a big T-Rex that had trouble trying to drink coffee. Once he told me – I literally LOL’d – which I rarely do and I rarely use that abbreviation. I thought about it for a while – and drew a picture a couple hours later – which started at the basis for this design.
After a weekend of brainstorming some more ideas of dinosaurs struggling in a human dominant world – we decided we’d start with Javasaurus and see if anybody would be interested.
We launched a campaign on Teespring, because I’m broke right now and can’t afford to get t-shirts printed up in the real world. It’s going for $20 right now – which most of the profits will go back into making more shirts about the other dinosaurs who struggle on a day to day basis – if it’s a hit.
Not expecting anything crazy to happen here – would just love to spread some post holiday cheer around the world. If you end up not purchasing one – hopefully you got a kick out of the idea and it brightens your day just a little bit.
Andy: It’s a pity that there wasn’t more time spent on the text underneath the drawing on this design, it looks like a bit of an afterthought and the design suffers as a whole because of it. Maybe it’s just the mockup and it’ll look fine in print.
