It is weird and funny and disturbing all at the same time.
Could it be that that was the intention, a la Emanuel Santos?

The artist is a climber and has had work published in Climbing magazine.
Here's a similar looking drawing:

At Art of Climbing in Chatsworth, we had a T-Shirt guy present some shirts he was trying to sell.
One had the Hard Rock Cafe graphic perfectly stolen, with" Hard Rock Climbing" in its place.

At the end of his presentation he was very confident we would buy, but i told him, that shirt is a rip off and we are not going to buy. He passed it off as nothing and attempted to start an order for other shirts.. I said "No, you do not understand, we are not buying any shirts from you, there are too many T-Shirts, and too many great artists out there who are not stealing someone else's work."


as for the film? Yawn Solo.

First World Problem defintion....spending time on an internet forum grousing about a T- shirt you donít have to buy.
I just ordered four dozen for the porters on the Karakoram Trek I am leading in August. Sent them a sample and they threarened a jihad if I didnít bring them some....something about they were better than 72 virgins.

Can you get the T-shirt without joining the AAC?

For that matter does anyone know where you can get a reasonably priced copy of the original Cristiano Ronaldo bust?

The whole thing seems nearly thoughtless. Certainly an unattractive image.

Del cross, if you donate $25, you also get a shirt.

This is the funniest thread on the topo in months if not years.

Yes the shirt is ugly, and yes the BD pack April Fools ad was much better.
