Has Boobs, Reads Comics

sg
One of the (too)many comics blogs I read is TheNerbyBird.com, written by the charming Jill Pantozzi. Her catchphrase is "Has Boobs, Reads Comics", because...well, she has and she does.

A couple of weeks before the San Diego Comic Con, she had a contest for someone to design a sign for her scooter (which she uses to get around because of her Muscular Dystrophy) that would work as a sign to tell people who she was and what her blog was.

Well, I'm a sucker for doing any sort of pure graphic design piece, so I whipped up the above little number, playing off her blog's logo (which also features various superheroines' bustlines) and even throwing in a cartoony version of Jill herself, speeding by.

I sent it in, and a few weeks later...I didn't win. Oh well, I thought, nice try.

But apparently Jill (and people who left comments) liked my design enough to want to turn it into a t-shirt, which she would wear to the SDCC! I thought that was great, and, sure enough, a few weeks later, there was Jill, rocking my design:

...I am filled with pride, seeing my design on a shirt like that. And this is certainly the prettiest thing my work has ever been put next to, on, or near! Thanks Jill!
