@Brad: No, YOU'RE the best!
Anyway, this is what I managed to whip up in an hour or so. It's in the same vein as the Hardcore Dave shirt, and it could use some polishing, but the idea's still there. I apologize in advance for any inaccuracies, the original picture is super low res.
That's really cool. I think to make it work like the original still does you need to be able to see the look of hope, exhiliration, expectation etc. in the faces so probably needs a least some mouths and maybe eyes - could still be kept minimalistic though. Well done for the effort though - the original certainly is quite low-res that you're going off of.
