One of my favorite booths at the UFC Fan Expo in Toronto was Trash Talkin’ Kids, a brand-new t-shirt line that combines MMA fighters with one of the most horrible fads from the 1980s. As a dude who appreciates lowbrow humor more than skulls and wings, these shirts spoke to me.
TTK was cool enough to hook us up with a couple shirts for the Potato Nation. It’s been a long time since we’ve done a t-shirt design contest, so we thought we’d give it another shot. Your challenge is this: Create a t-shirt design in the style of Trash Talkin’ Kids. (Basically, a well-known MMA fighter, a weird Garbage Pail-esque pun using their name, and a gruesome visual representation of that pun.) Details continue after the jump…
Submit your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by next Monday. We’ll select a few finalists, and you’ll vote for your favorite on Tuesday. The top two vote-getters will each score their choice of TTK t-shirt from the four designs pictured above. Simple as that. And for those of you who aren’t artistically inclined, you can always help out by tossing some concept ideas in the comments section. Any questions? Good luck to everybody, and thanks to Trash Talkin’ Kids for making this possible!
