About the image I put up a few pages ago:
The green on black was mostly because it's easy to work with, the contrast is good and I can check that the line drawing works on both lighter and
darker backgrounds. The original image is 3600x3600 pixels (12" by 12" at printing resolution) which seemed to cover any possible cafepress
I've done some cleaning up on it too (and took off the unicorn's crown/collar since it offended Our Beloved Debate Champion™ Ian M. But I'm open
to suggestions, and the crown could easily be restored.
I'm still not happy with the lion's arms, either, but here's what I have as of this posting (in a much smaller form, in black on white).
editing after having caught up:
Let me check out some Latin resources. I think Cicero is a good suggestion, TWISI. Instead of "arguing" I might try "rhetoric" or "debate" in
dictionaries; I think they'll preserve the meaning and give more specialized possibilities. BTW, I would stay way away from using the verb oro
because in medieval and liturgical Latin that means "pray". I do a lot of that when a post isn't going well, but I don't think it should be in the
"Knights of the Word" I love, but does Terry Brooks have any kind of claim on the phrase?
As I said earlier, I don't consider the lion and the unicorn design completely done, though it's getting close. I just wanted to see if there would
be any interest before I put too much time into it. I haven't been linking in the full size image because it's over 1MB in size so I can't upload
it to photobucket. I'll make transparent gifs of the design in black and in white tonight and I can probably get those up at full size (12 inches by
12 inches for a Women's Plus Size t-shirt).
Also, what do people think of the "Cracked" font for the "Fight Club Pub"? I couldn't decide between that and something more
: the pink unicorn merchandise looks awesome!
: thanks for taking the initiative on this

These definitely need cleaning up before actual use, since there are little flecks of color all over where I didn't fully erase lines. But it'll
give you an idea of how they'd work on the merchandise. The green (or any other color) can be easily restored.
