Random Distance Shirts 2006
Realizing that the grace period of oh that lazy Tom, always saving these design projects to the last minute was wearing thin for the organizers of the Random Distance Run I finally got around to finishing the shirt designs for this year. The front design is rather different than in prior years; this is a stylistic parody of "pro-style" race shirts (inspired by this actually professional design except less competent and omitting the female runner because jeez, I spent like 3 hours just drawing the dude and wanted to fit that Hamerschlag in the background and the race will be 85% males anyway, being de facto a Computer Science event). The back side is standard fake-sponsor fare; thank you all for your ideas and I'm sorry I couldn't fit them all in!

If you want to wear this design on your body, registration is still open for the race! (Actually you can register until race day, but if you register in the next few days then you can be guaranteed a shirt of the correct size.)

The chicago runners have way more muscles than your guy. Going for the intellectual look?

Well, they're running a whole marathon and we're running somewhere between 0.5 and 3.0 miles.

Tom, excellent work as usual.
I like how the "Cloud Factory" (ala <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0060972122/sr=8-1/qid=1144362594/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-5926896-7473618?%5Fencoding=UTF8">The Mysteries of Pittsburgh</a>) is actually generating clouds. Probably just a coincidence.

Bah.... no html...
Let me restate:
Tom, excellent work as usual.
I like how the "Cloud Factory" (ala that book "The Mysteries of Pittsburgh" which you can type into Amazon.com YOURSELF) is actually generating clouds. Probably just a coincidence.

I have Mysteries of Pittsburgh but haven't read it yet. Does he call that thing the cloud factory? That's funny.
