$12 Teextile: 7 Dirty Words

5 pennies earned

"7 dirty words," by Arrow is just that... I think. I'm not sure who the man is supposed to be on the front, -- maybe George Carlin -- but either way, he's got these dirty words on his mind. It says seven, but honestly, I'm not going to bother with counting. I don't really see the appeal in this shirt. Not as much as I have seen in others. The concept just doesn't do it for me. This shirt makes me pay attention more to the words, rather than art. And for my money, I go for a t-shirt because the design tells the story.

George Carlin's "7 Dirty Words" is a famous comedy routine from around the 70's. I believe he died this year or last year.

Yup. Today is the first anniversary of his death...

I don't really see the resemblance. I know it's text and all, but I've seen text images look much like their respective persons.

Eden said...

I was just thinking that the microphone, an essential prop for him, throws off the image a bit...

Here's the original pic used for the tracing:

Do I think the words version looks more like Christopher Walken? Yes. :)
