A t-shirt idea...Any thoughts on the screen printing process or the design itself?

EDIT - In order to stay on topic, this is a picture of a track god, to be worn on my fixed gear. What kind of messenger bag should be worn with this shirt?

EDIT x2 - I've removed the pic. Sorry.

Yeah, the cap is a little square-ish. And I traced it. I'm not that good free hand.

wouldn't the text have to be backwards to print correctly?

No, text is printed normally when burning a screen.

I think this tee-shirt is awesome. It kinda reminds me of the Jesus is my Homeboy shirts that where around a few years ago. Almost outsider art like Henry Darger.

Paul Frank has already capitalized on the Eddy thing with a screen shot of him crossing the line with his hands in the air and letters that says "Don't Be A Hater" sold at your nearest Urban Outfitters.

but do you think most people that have bought that shirt know who it is? or if they did would they know who he is?

Looks like the cannibal has lost some weight, too. Weren't the doctors on him about it (edit: being too tubby, that is)?

Way to go, fanboy! :D
