Here’s a woodcut I carved of a weirdo tyrannosaur. I think he could look good on a tee-shirt, maybe in rendered in pastel colors. His embryonic stressball look makes me think of pink, chartreuse, and lavender colors… But if you make a tee-shirt out of him, you can color him however you want!

I’d like to see maybe a cartoon hound with shovel in one hand, big gemstone in the other and a big slobbery smile! Kind of retro 60’s cartoonish..

Looks like I may be a day late for the contest. Anyway, my suggestion would be to do a design that incorporates barite rose rocks.

How about –
“Let’s Rock” maybe with that barite rose that was suggested or a cystal cluster.
“Is that a rock in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?” With a pic of a quartz sceptor. (Too racey?)
“Digger” pic (rockhound with pick / shovel”) and
“I’m into rocks! – Can you dig it?”
“Caution! Rock Licker!”
Pic of rockhound licking a rock – and don’t tell me you’ve never done it.
Highway caution sign (yellow diamond)
“Watch for rocks”
“Caution – I brake for rocks”
“I’m synclined to love rockhounds”
“Old rockhounds never die, they just slowly petrify”
Pic of rock hound with a boulder
“Why didn’t I just collect stamps?”

How about a shirt that looks like the Budweiser logo and have it say “Morrisonite the King of Jaspers”
