Fun_Tee.Beardown


And here's the final of our little "i am the beatdown" shirt, or should I say "beardown"?

Anyway, the title comes from two things, primarily the old Magic adage about identifying "who is the beatdown," famously originated by Michael J. Flores, whose podcast with Patrick Chapin I quite enjoy despite not really being into Constructed myself. People talking passionately and intelligently about anything is always a great listen.

The second namesource is a twist on one of my favorite albums of all time, I am the Movie, from Motion City Soundtrack, which is lamentably calling it quits this year...

And then the design itself is a reference to the Magic slang for a 4/2 4/4 2/2 creature for two mana, affectionately called a "bear." Rather than my more intricate style, I thought a more "cute," clumsy style would be in order.


And then here's what it might look like on Didi from Splinter.

The background is a photo from when I discovered I was standing next to Tokyo Dome one night. I was more pumped by the official Shonen Jump merch shop nearby.
