New T-shirt?

I was thinking of isolating the character from 'Surveying on Mars' (the one to the right with the GPS unit) and putting him on the front of a t-shirt. By himself, however, what could he say? Please post your thoughts.


Thanks to Paul MN, we now have a new shirt! Check it out.

What about having some 'space' elements floating around him, skew him so he looks like he is floating in space. Then put some text at the top that just says: "Floating." Surveyors that use GPS will get the joke.

I love Paul's idea. Having just finished the first phase of a large road project, I have come to hate that word float. Another option for the text in that idea would be "@#%@# Voice over Data priority's We just lost the cell conection again". This would be understood by those using a VRS network.

Use a thought cloud and have him think:

"Well I only got two points set today, but they are really a long way apart"

Italicize "really"

Paul's idea is good too - you might use the "only two point" idea a little different in another cartoon sometime.

Welcome to the newly re-designed! Since the creation of this strip, I have been procrastinating in adding more features and products to my site and my store. Well, step one complete: the site. Now just sit tight, and I'll work on putting some newer and better products in the store.

For those of you how found this site perusing the inter-web, is a monthly comic strip published in Professional Surveyor Magazine and online here. The humor and situations are derived from the surveying industry.

In addition to this site and the strip, I also do freelance design on the side. You can see my portfolio here. I am also a songwriter, and I am currently chronicaling my songwriting experience via blog here.

Thank you for stopping by, if you have any ideas please click here and post them at the bottom by adding a comment.
