Proposed G11 Graphic to commemorate Glen

Post by BarnacleMike » Thu Jul 06, 2017 9:52 am

I was really happy that so many people liked the graphic I did for G10 last year. Shortly after that weekend, I had made another one for G11 that seemed to go over pretty well.

Since that time, however, we have lost Glen. I kept thinking about the G11 graphic, and I really wanted to do something to commemorate Glen. When WoodyBoater ran the story, they used a photo of Glen and Vera zooming along in their L-Dorado runabout. So, I've put together a graphic styled similarly to last year, but based on this photo of Glen and Vera.

Here is the design, as well as in last year's cream-on-green colors (for reference). Also, here is a mockup of what a front/back printed T-shirt might look like, using both the earlier graphic and this one.

What do you think?

Nice! What's really cool about this is that with the Internet and the various online printers, getting something like this done is easier than ever.

Now we need someone to volunteer to put the shirts together. I always get the koozies done. But, I don't have the time to get the shirts.

Michael,

Thank you so much for doing such a nice graphic once again. And, especially, in memory of my dad. We can have our guy do the shirts like last year and put them in our online store. Please let me know if you were happy with the shirts or if you'd like them to be different or whatever.

I agree, Bill. I think that would be a nice touch.

How about this?
