Default New Plowboys Team Shirts

Went out today to take advantage of no sales state or county sales tax this weekend. Bought a few t-shirts and started getting some ideas. Thinking about doing this shirt for fall with a long sleeve T. Thoughts on how to improve? I'm not much of a graphics artist, but I can do a pretty good job of layout in Illustrator.

I think if you arc the copy, you'll be able to get the image larger on the shirt. And since you have a lot of letters in your name, that will make for better readability.

That's lookin' good Todd, but I still think that the old ones with the tractor are cool, too.

Then just print the "Pork Pullin" in black ... at least I assume that's the color of the shirt.

It's probably the artist in me, but the ye olde English font clashes big time with the tribal armband thing goin' on in the middle (especially with the post-modern "pullin" verbiage). It's kinda like Shakespeare meets modern tribal armband tattooed freak. There are a ton of modern fonts out there that would tie the two together.

You might try this font (bottom version), or this one.

Just my $0.02,
John

Check my edit above. I added it after you had replied.

That's what I was gonna say. I tend to go for readability over design.
