Such a pretty lie!

I have made some new buttons for this weekend.



Who wants a "Google Is Ruining Everything" shirt? And how exactly do I draw that?

"Google Is Ruining Everything" would be fun to wear! (Although due to sizing, I can only admire rather than wear)

I cannot think of how one would go about drawing that though.

I would *love* a Google Is Ruining Everything t-shirt. I'm picturing google knocking things off my desk. Or possibly walking through downtown on mechanical spider-legs, zapping things with a heat ray.

Ack, let's try this again, but with proof-reading!

I sometimes wonder what all the unemployed encyclopedia sales-people have been doing since Google stole the scene. However, a down-trodden bookseller might not make the spiffiest shirt.

Tom Meade said...

A picture of a generic web-search engine with the results for "Google is ruining Everything"? Although people put Star wars on t-shirts so genericisms might not be needed.

That was a bad idea and I've read too much Dan Handler.

I would most definitely purchase that... but I honestly can't think of a way to illustrate it except an angry Erin or something.

I want to say, depending on design, I would probably buy a Google shirt. Perhaps a surly college professor mourning the lack of quality research for his students who use Google as a subsitute to hard work? Maybe a weepy book?

That said, I would love a bear button, yet I am not in England. Bears are the greatest threat facing America today, and I would like to broadcast that fact through a button on my messenger bag.

I don't know know how you'd draw it, but I'd really, really love a "Google Is Ruining Everything" shirt. Or button. Make certain you do it in a non-legally-actionable fashion, so that I can actually buy some of your "GIRE" merch rather than just watch you drown beneath the waves of tortious... torts... and such-like.

Woody said...

Draw it like the google main screen, but all artsy, and add 'Is ruining everything' into the search box.

I need a Dark Esther button.

I would like all of those buttons to add to my exciting collection of Scary Go Round buttons (currently four of them). Would you accept money in a brown paper envelope via the medium of post?

John A said...

The buttons are strictly available at my personal appearances, I can't be bothered to mess about with posting them. Occasionally lucky purchasers get them with their orders, but that is a rare treat dispensed wholly on grounds of favouritism.

I will do the google shirt with a babydoll XL. If I can work out what to draw on it.

Mizufae said...

i'm not sure that it needs to be *illustrated* exactly... it could be a type based shirt, just saying "google is ruining everything" in your personal retrobritbright flavor, and maybe some sad faces. you're a graphic designer, you're up to it!
(also the other best one is google on mechanical spider legs, lasering stuff. because lasers are awesome.)

Roman said...

Oh, John, I would advise against a Google Is Ruining Everything t-shirt. Remember the last t-shirt you did with a company's name in it? Does "I Trod On Lego" ring a bell?

Anyways, if you do go ahead with the Google shirt, I think you should add in the phrase "It's easy when you cheat using the internet" somewhere on it as well.

Zach! said...

Yep. I would buy that in a moment. I liked the stacks of old encyclopedias and grumpy bookstore man, but I also think it would be funny if you had a ton of balloon people on the shirt (as illustrated today!) talking about all the things they know.

Woody said...

When I went to the main site, I could see a comic that apperently is to be posted 8 days from now. Have I developed prophetic powers?

itsinmybag said...

i don't think i am the only female fan who would say YES to size XL babydoll shirts in general.

Jenna said...

The thought of an SGR tshirt in an XL makes me very excited!

Windsor Grace said...

I would like one. I would also like buttons.

Pat said...

Who WOULDNT want a shirt that said "Google is ruining everything"?

I'm throwing in my lot with the lasers, too. Heat-ray. Whatever...

Can Google be crushing Bessie, my poor old truck? She's a dilapidated 1966 GMC 3/4-ton pickup in faded Palimino Tan. She'd love a starring role on a shirt!

Just a thought.

mazeofmemories said...

Completely new topic in an old thread:

I would buy a "My What A Curiously Shaped Pebble" shirt and that would probably be easier to illustrate...

Roksx said...

That makes 2 shirts I would buy

babalouies said...

I am imagining the Jeff Wayne The War of the Worlds album cover, but the text instead reading "Scarygoround's: Google Is Ruining Everything~!~".

Zeke said...

How about a satelite-photo-type image of the Labyrinth, with the path to the centre helpfully super-imposed in red?
That might be too obvious for some, but I'd buy it.
