Yes, growing up I was a huge, HUGE, HUGE G.I Joe fan. Really huge. Anyway, I recently saw "Inglourious Basterds" by Quentin Tarantino and then went surfing on wikipedia. Started looking up the term "Spaghetti Western" and such. Didn't realize the whole history behind it. It sat in my head for a few days and this is what I came up with. Now let me be clear, I did not think up the term "G.I. Bro", but it was just too cool to let pass without coming up with something for it. I think it's a nice spoof/parody/homage kind of piece. I designed it be a sticker first, then thought to put it on a tee. I'll add more pictures of it later. What do you think? YOOOO BROOOO!!!

My favorite hero of all time, Chuck Norris. His birthday is today, March 10th. He's 71 and can still roundhouse kick your butt. Anyway, every year I do something for his birthday. It's becoming something of an "in joke". The problem is- I'm the only one "in" on it. That being said, if you know me even a little, two of my most favorite things are Chuck Norris and New York tabloid headlines (from the NY Daily News & The NY Post) I live for their over the top, 3 inch, world-is-ending headlines about the most trivial subjects. I run to the newsstand with anticipation about what will capture their fancy.
The headline: "See ya later Al-Qaeda" has stuck in my head for years. It was a Daily News cover in Nov. 2001. Chuck Norris is always in my head. I put the two together and this is what I came up with.
Happy birthday Chuck.
