Development progress of the Steam Power: 100% Practical for Everything shirt!

I went through a lot of pretty bad design ideas (not shown, because I tossed ‘em) before arriving at the basic layout you see in the first sketch up there. Most of them had each of the three steam-powered items inside their own cog-shaped frames. Way too busy! It was when I figured out Theo should be holdingone of the items that it started to come together.

But even after I had decided on the basic layout, the design went through a lot of tweaking before I was confident the text and items looked right. We can all thank Jeph for pointing out that my original blimp and sandwich were not nearly intricate or ridiculous looking enough. I think it’s the sandwich valve and pistons that sell the whole shirt!
