Meerkatsu Art: Jiu-Jitsu Drug Warning T-shirt

These tees were a huge bundle of fun to produce. I came up with the idea after I saw this very famous t-shirt design and thought, hmm, maybe I can do something similar using BJJ terminology.

I wracked my brain for reasonably amusing puns and plays on pharma themes plus twisted some known hazard and warning symbols. With a little help from my BJJ Artist friends, the final design was complete.

I'd like to thank BJJHQ and 93 Brand for supporting me on this design. It's a big departure from what I normally draw. When the initial batch went live on BJJHQ, their entire allocation sold out in less than 40 minutes!

I would also like to thank CTRL Industries. Unbeknownst to me, they had previously produced their own jiu jitsu as a drug themed t-shirt. When I emailed the owner to see if was ok with my design, he was again utterly supportive.

As they say in BJJ drug circles: Prescription before Submission! (that came from one of my contest winners).

This t-shirt is available from 15th May 2013 at my Meerkatsushop store from 1pm GMT.
