Shirt 3 Design: Bernadette & Bricks
« on: February 22, 2011, 05:36:18 pm »
The next shirt design I am planning is gonna be a Bernadette themed shirt.  Here's what I've got so far... what do you all think?

Awesome!

I'm trying to think of other slogans.

Bricks: The only attack
Don't punch 'em, Brick 'em
Bricks: Building a path to your face

Maybe a pick of her pitching it, like a baseball bowler or something and the close image of the brick flying through the air.
CATCH: with your face.

Maybe think about embossing the word "BRICK" onto it, or indenting it.  I always liked when the bricks were labelled in the sketch comics, it just drew a laugh out of me.

My original idea was: "Prepare to face my ultimate attack: BRICKS!" or maybe "Ultimate technique: BRICKS!"

I wonder if "BRICKS!  My Ultimate Technique!" is funnier than "BRICKS!  My Secret Weapon!"

the caption just dosen't seem to flow to me, it seems somewhat awkward.

Reworked it a bit.  How about this one?

*lol* actually, I wonder how a chibi image for the shirts would go down.  I think Chibi Bern has a good following.

On a side note... I'm just thinking that the cover image for Chapter 28 would look really good on a shirt, with the title as a caption.  Either colour or B&W.

"You know when you have been Bricked!" ?
What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.

Yeah, but a full color image on a shirt is more expensive to print, and I just don't know if it would sell as well as a shirt with a catchy slogan.  Jennifer seems to think that only shirts with catchy slogans sell.

I'd agree with Jennifer on the catchy slogans.  I still say one of the best line in the comic is "You are all my food".  Its not so much catchy I guess but the situation and delivery of it was just so perfect to instill the horror of whats about to happen to any poor soul who's unfortunate enough to hear that line.

I'm trying to think of some good lines Bern has had.  These are the two I can recall off the top of my head.

I'll agree with this. That said I've got absolutely no suggestions for an alternative caption.

I like Oddballs too.

"JUST BRICK IT"
...a nice little slogan playing on Nike, but probably doesn't fit in with Bern or Flipside *shrug*

Oddball, I actually came up with that very same one last night as I was brainstorming, and it felt like the best option to me.  "BRICKS The Ultimate Weapon!" seems around right for that design.

Here's one for you Warhammerists:

"Brick: Strength 10, Armour Penetration 0"

Edit: Poor take from a Die Hard line  "HO! HO! HO! Now I have a Brick!"
