LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
I have a little meat blog (http://meat-meister.com/) and I review a variety of dishes in four major meat food groups: beef, pork, fowl, and game. I go to food events and people like my blog and name and I want to go with some cool t-shirts to give out to chefs or sell to carnivores.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
Five t-shirts... the concept based upon Ezekiel's vision of four cherubim which I'm reinterpreting a bit darkly.
1 t-shirt containing all of the beasts listed below (one in each corner of the shirt back):
(1) a steer or beef cattle bull;
(2) a boar or wild pig;
(3) a stag or elk;
(4) a 'turducken' fowl - basically, a three headed-bird (turkey, duck and chicken).
Each animal has angel's wings.
"MEAT-MEISTER" is in the middle back in large letters.
On the front: "Let There Be Meat."
Font for both can be Fraktur...you pick but nothing too 'goth' or 'vampire' or 'heavy metal' please.
And 1 shirt for each of the four animals described above. (Much larger version of the animal)
In these solo shirts, the animals should be 'animated' in the literal sense: they should burst up or across or down the t-shirt. Their faces can be expressive and I'm not concerned with symmetrical placement. More fun to see a wild boar jumping up from someone's pants or a wild turducken screaming down their back than nicely centered on either side of the shirt.
The shirt cannot be dumbly cartoony like every pork and BBQ shirt i've ever seen but if you can pull off some dark knight or Javanese or Tibetan style animal drawings, that's another option. Put some Old Testament fear into this, some God-vision, some epiphany, some sense that meat is a religion to chefs and BBQ lovers and ranchers and gourmands and food is a divine connection between us all. Scare me, inspire me, make me curious to come closer to the shirt and invite conversation. Help shy bacon-loving guys wear these shirts to meet foxy girls.
I'll do the P.R. and it can help your career; I know a bunch of editors and writers and this will get press, to be sure.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Meat eaters, punks and rockers, Christians and pagans, hunters and farmers and gatherers and chefs and rugby moms and sommeliers and people with dry humor. I want the image to be so striking that vegetarians and PETA employees would wear them b/c the animals are so beautiful.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
Albrecht Durer or 19th c. British zoology books or Tibetan drawings of tigers...basically I love amazing line drawings.
If you can strip down Durer's detail to something easily seen on a t-shirt (or pull off something complex that can still be printed on a t-shirt) that's a wonderful start. If you Google "Ezekiel's vision" you'll find Raphael and many other artists' interpretations of the 4 cherubim as a foundation.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
Each shirt must have http://meat-meister.com/ (small) somewhere on it and in larger font MEAT-MEISTER. I'm not sure the exact font I want but again, Fraktur fonts are great.
No really cartoony stuff. I want some version of realism, heightened or not.
