I was tossing around the idea of having some poorly drawn designs as shirts on Mediocritee.
The theme? Meh.
Say it, draw it. Whatever, it’s up to you.
Think, 1-2 colors, maybe Microsoft paint is used. If you have no art skills at all, that’s great because I’ll be using my very limited abilities in illustrator to go over it to make it somewhat usable.
If we select your design(s) I’ll send you a copy of the shirts and a couple of coupons to Mediocritee or something cool.
Edit to add:
Deadline? Idk man, next week? Two weeks? Let’s do two weeks from today.

Oh man, I already have some ‘art’ that I might need to use for this. I am a terrible artist, so it will be about as fabulous as your cat.
You should post this design in the tattoo thread and see if you get any takers.
@sammydog01 Don’t tempt me. I’d do it myself.
@riskybryzness I’ll buy candy canes if you do.
I’m very excited to see how this plays out.
@ACraigL Me too. Feel free to contribute, but downplay your skills a few notches, will ya. I wanna see shakey lines, limited colors, and bad ideas.
@riskybryzness Left hand-only, after a few cocktails. Loud and clear!
I knew I bought a phone with a stylus for a reason. Granted, it wasn’t for this.
@riskybryzness You asked for it. Remember that.
@ACraigL This is… amazing.
@ACraigL If this was on a green or maybe a red shirt, I would likely buy one.
@ACraigL hahahaha top notch.
@riskybryzness left-handed all the way!
@ACraigL Do another one with Irk or Glen being sucked up into the UFO.
@Kidsandliz I think I intended it be Irk in the saucer with a glass bubble helmet on. In my 8 seconds of planning I didn’t end up with enough room for that detail, unfortunately.
This is as artsy as I get
@mbersiam Suddenly I crave garnished turkey for some reason
How about this: https://meh.com/forum/topics/2-pack-racing-possum-and-pug-in-peanuts#62c89652d6b06019fe4bbd51
Who doesn’t want somebody starting at their chest trying to figure out a connect the dots:
Here is my masterpiece.
@remo28 lil piggy
I’m embarrassed to even show this. Hey, all I have is a trackball to try to draw with… ugh. !
I have no ideas. BUT If you need help with the part where your abilities in Illustrator are very limited, I can help with that. Mine are less limited.
Link looks broken. I’m on mobile though so idk if it’s just me.
@riskybryzness strange it shows up on mine but I’m also on mobile so who knows. I assure you it’s not very good anyway haha
I couldn’t decide. So I made two.
What us illustrator? I know I’m dumb but I have an idea.
What is illustrator? The thing you use to draw on?
@Star2236 adobe illustrator, so I can make some sweet clean lines and have it flexible in size.
I know it’s too many colors, but, c’mon, give Glen some love.
If you also want to opt out of me sharing these on social media, please let me know and I’ll respect that. Likely on Twitter or TikTok, I can exclude or include usernames.
@riskybryzness just make sure you watermark them so no one tries to turn them into NFTs. I mean we all worked hard on our shirt art.
I went a little overboard with colors but they could be modified. Pretty sure the second one is the version we get here for every Irk.
@cinoclav Well this is perfect.
I always thought this would make a cute t-shirt
Or this with a Georgia Red heart
@heartny No purple heart?
@Barney Purple is an option. Currently Georgia Red seems to be trending though.
@medz I can hear the music now…
@medz That one only the old timers will get. Too lazy to look for the thread but for all those who don’t get it, he got goated over this.
Use a Beadazzler to build the Meh logo on the front of a shirt, but make sure to mis-apply about half the bits so that they can be flaked off immediately, but leaving part or all of the adhesive clinging to the shirt.
Nothing could be more Meh.
@werehatrack I have a shirt like this with a shamrock and I kinda love it more.
I actually went digging back through old threads to find this bit of one-line art I did long ago to earn an IRK. Or a discount? Who knows.
@Barney - you should enter a version of this, maybe with a thought bubble saying "Meh"
There is a whole thread of my Goat Prize etchings that look a lot like this (way before your time and I can’t seem to find it, so that’s a good thing for the people of this forum).
I’ve always admitted that I’m the world’s worst artist and I have not improved over the years, so I think I will pass on this contest and give someone else a chance to show how bad they are at drawing.
Thanks for thinking of me – I’m not sure if this is a compliment or not.
@Barney I think it would make a very popular shirt!
@Kyeh It’s a little early in Colorado to be drinking, isn’t it?
@Barney Nah! But I’m not drunk.
I found that thread a while back while randomly searching old threads (yeah, I waste a lot of time that I should spend getting my life in order) and I thought it was hilarious!
@Kyeh Just to be clear, I was NOT drinking when I drew those pictures.
@hammi99 That’s dark.
nah… just use a white shirt…
This would actually be better with some color re-arranging and a black or very dark background.
Because, with t-shirts, white and light colors show stains and wear.
V dark colors hold up better under t-shirt use.
Possible alt version on black
Bumping this back up because it’s my birthday and I am using that to guilt everyone so I can see more designs.
/giphy happy birthday!
I’ll get out my crayons tomorrow.
@riskybryzness Oh, I missed that part, sorry!
@sammydog01 holding you to this.
@riskybryzness Tomorrow tomorrow, not today tomorrow. Maybe.
I decorated the box I sent in the Mehtizen Exchange; the recipient evidently wasn’t impressed though because she never mentioned it.
@chienfou Aww, thanks!
@Kyeh very nice. And indeed macys is meh LOL
@hammi99 Thanks! Yes, sadly Macy’s is becoming another of those rapidly dwindling mercantile empires.
@Kyeh for sure the goat is to blame for the demise of macys
@Kyeh I kind of really love this. Lol
@Kyeh @riskybryzness I think they’d make great tee’s.
@Ignorant @riskybryzness Thank you!
I though it might had been me who got the box bc it sounds like something I would had been oblivious to but I went and checked the box (bc I have other stuff packed in it) and it wasn’t me. Makes me feel better lol
@Star2236 No, not you!
My meh shirt is double sided (yes front and back),only way this shirt works. Yes meh I know you can do it
Bc your employees shirts are front and back. Mine also has a super cool trademark to match the shirt black shirt with white lettering so it stands out.
@Star2236 I’ll see if I can pull some (heart) strings if we go with this.
Darn, I forgot all about this! Bummer!
@Lynnerizer I think it’s still open.
@riskybryzness When does this whole thing close?
@Lynnerizer Pull out your art supplies and get a drawing done, lady! 🖍
@riskybryzness tomrorow my time or your time?
@riskybryzness just askin because there is a 99.9% chance I will be running late again!
@mikibell @riskybryzness What time tomorrow? Can I do it tomorrow morning? Not that I’ve thought of anything yet.
@riskybryzness @sammydog01 right there with you… tried to think of it this weekend, but kid stuff happened…
@mikibell @riskybryzness Got a pencil, got a post-it, not gonna get up until I have something.
Do you guys want another week? I need to extend for voting on our end, wouldn’t hurt to get a few more in.
@mikibell @riskybryzness Sure, I’m up for doing another one. Or two.
@riskybryzness @sammydog01 cool… I dropped an ebike on my head and was dealing with a raging headache… Thank you for the extension!
@mikibell @riskybryzness @sammydog01
On your head?
Ow, and yikes, and HOW???
@Kyeh @riskybryzness @sammydog01 Not his fault, we haven’t made a secure place for him to keep it outside yet, and it is in my living room. I moved it to get something and didn’t realize I set it down of a strap for my bag. When I bent down to get my bag, I tugged and sent it toppling into my head, handle bar to the skull is NOT pleasant. Still hurts to the touch or when I brush my hair…
@mikibell @riskybryzness @sammydog01 Oh, bummer!
I hope you feel better soon!
fuck. i forgot the “fuck”
@carl669 Maybe a second entry is in order?
@sammydog01 That’s honestly as good as I can draw.
/giphy I tried my best
Okay, a slight update.
We’re going to delay this for a bit until next week. People that still want to participate can, there’s really no rush for it all. We’ll check back in then and go from there!
Have until the end of the day on Wednesday! Just a heads up.
Oh this is great, I’m just seeing this now, I thought I’d missed it for sure.
Nothing like a second chance for a first shot!
Gonna bump this because it’s Wednesday.
Gonna print any? Did they all suck? Are you drafting a note that says you’re all talented in your own way but we’re going in a different direction?
@sammydog01 Posting about it now!
I’m going to follow up with both of you in a private e-mail (look for something from Mediocritee, check junk/spam as well) but here’s the public post:
@acraigl and @pony are the worst at this, and therefore the best at this.
@lichme, we see you and have thoughts…more later.
I personally absolutely loved seeing everyone’s creations and had a lot of fun going through everything. We sorted this by most liked this time and it worked out alright. That may not be the case in the future, but the top two (three) designs were our personal favorites for seeing on shirts.
Some questions that might get asked:
Q: When will these be printed?
A: Sometime this year, this is a side project in between my normal workload so be patient, it will happen.
Q: Where will they be available?
A: On Mediocritee.
Q: Why did this take so long?
A: See Q2, some work happened, some life happened but here we are!
Q: Will something like this happen again?
A: I suppose that depends on how many of these terrible shirts you actually end up buying.
Q: So how’s this going to work, are you really going to make these shirts?
A: Yes. I will be attempting to outline these with my limited Illustrator capabilities to make them usable for our team.
Q: What do the artists get?
A: Love! Adoration! Fame! And probably a little something more, we’ll be writing them and they can decide if they’d like to share.
Now, a question for you.
We have to pick one shirt color per design, what would be your pick for these? Black? Other neutral gray type colors? Or something wilder, like banana cream or light pink?
@riskybryzness Congrats to the artists! Just don’t make them white. I spill food. Pastels are cool though. Maybe let the winners pick? ( Put me down for one cow shirt, please.)
(Where’s my participation ribbon?)
@riskybryzness black shirt, white print.
@riskybryzness Thanks so much! All this time I’ve been trying to be a good shirt designer, I never considered making a profit being a bad one. I could have saved SO much time!
Definitely a dark shirt with white print. Not necessarily black… maybe dark heather or navy would work too. Doing that would inverse the image (i.e. cow would be white with “holes” for the spots. Saucer and speech bubble would be filled white as well), I think.
@ACraigL hmm. I might follow up with you on a wonky idea.
@riskybryzness It’s late, but I’m here to suggest the cow print could benefit from some glow-in-the-dark ink!
Thank you so much! WooHoo! I suck at drawing!
I’d love to see black shirt, white print. Always my fave.
@riskybryzness Did anything ever happen with this? You sent me an email, I replied, but never heard back after that
@lichme Working on that this month actually, I’ll follow up with you in a bit with some details.
