Never Not-Running

#1 Posted by Evercaptor (391 posts) -

I'm looking to either make a t-shirt with this slogan and a picture of meat boy, or pitch it to Team Meat and see how they feel about it.
Has anyone seen a picture of meat boy runing at full tilt (preferably a really high-res one) or is it a case of trying to draw it myself?

I'll take your dollar and raise you two.

@Twiggy199:  I'm not stealing it, I'm honouring it. With fabric.

I already sent this out to the SMB twitter so here's hoping for a response.

Lose the onomatopoeia. Other than that it's pretty good so far.

@MisterChief: really? I think it goes well, because I have that damn sound effect burnt into my ears.
It's hard to remove ink from paper though XD I'll look into getting rid when I get around to scanning/digitally fixing it.

Maybe it would look good depending on the font and the placement but as it is I don't like it.

Looks great!

@Evercaptor: I think it looks really great, hope it gets made, one way or another.
#13 Posted by Evercaptor (391 posts) -

According to their twitter, they approve even if they're not gonna make it!

Given that the guys basically said "someone needs to make this", it's not like they are stealing it...more as they are adhering to the calling. 
 
Also, I would like to submit my own handwriting for the "Never Not-Running" part, as I've always been told that my handwriting has a certain...quality to it.

GB has a lot of fans that hang on every word the staff says. I remember the staff said something about a joke Helicopter site they should make called Whirlworld, next thing you know there are a bunch of threads dedicated to this offhand comment.

@zombie2011: Those off-hand comments also happen to be pretty fucking awesome.

Yeah when they say it it's funny. Like when they were doing the whole BatmanBatmanBatman thing i was smiling, but then when everyone decides to make threads about it and actually make a website, i'm just like really?

@zombie2011: The expanding of the ideas, personally, is just as fucking awesome as the original off-hand comments.

/me sees how meta this thread now is. And likes it.
@Daveyo520:
thank you.
@jakob187:
If you can do that with a thick marker and scan it, I'd be much appreciated. Ball-point thickness doesn't do well when printing shirts you see.

That's why you scan it in then ink it using illustrator. Turn it into a vector image so it scales for all t shirt sizes :p

You'd need permission to make it yourself, no?

It's £15 to get these shirts printed up. that's without factoring in shipping. I'll post a cleaner image here in the next few days, but if you're too lazy, send me your UK shirt size in a PM and your address and I'll send you one (and you can paypal me when it's in the post) ^^
 I'll be sending a few to Team Meat and GB too, as a thank you, for the inspiration. At least £5 (per shirt) will go to Team meat for these purchases too, out of my own pocket, 'cos this printing is at cost.

I'm never not laughing.

What's the word on these shirts, man? I totally want one. In fact, I totally want TWO. Ditch the hyphen, though. 
 
"NEVER NOT RUNNING" It's much cooler this way.

I know this is old now, but it was something I was thinking about when my boss told me to slow down my rate of work. 
 
Perhaps instead of having meatboy on the shirt at all, you just have a picture of the Right trigger and the x button taped down on the front, then on the back, it says Never not Running in graffiti. It's more subtle and it's a shirt you can wear into public and not feel embarrassed to wear.

@Evercaptor: Did you ever get this stuff done?  I didn't even know that you asked for a thicker version of my handwriting for this.  I still totally want one of these shirts.

I think if you could stylise it; maybe have like "pata" floating around the air numerous times, then it would look pretty cool. 
 
Your Meat Boy looks awesome, though. I'd buy it.
