New UTMC Art

The place to come if you've been with us for years or it's your first time here. General yakking about anything motorcycle related. Think of it as the internet coffeehouse for the UTMC.

New UTMC Art

Postby Beemer Dan » Thu Jun 03, 2004 9:12 am

Hi all, I'm putting together a CD of UTMC related art to send off to Mountain for various future projects. As I looked at what I had, I realized that most of it was pretty much the same, and thought that some new stuff would be nice.

Many of you have amazing artistic talent flowing in your veins, and I was wondering if you have any cool and groovy illustrated stuff you'd like to add to the mix. Anything you would like to contribute is welcome, don't worry about any guidlines or anything, just run with it :D

If you've got anything, or want to create something for the occasion, please post it here or email it to me. If your work is used for an upcoming t-shirt design or something, you'll get a few freebies. Also, you can have dominion over when and where the art is used, so no worries if you later decide to retire the design. Thanks much!

@-Mountain, the first CD will be on it's way tomorrow, sorry it's taking so long.

Here's some of the art we have on hand. No worries about following any guidelines or particular styles tho, just go with whatever you like to do. Also, no rush on anything either, this thread will stay up here for a bit.

Any of these could be used for shirts/stickers/patches/lsd blotter, but Dr. Jason and I talked about getting more diversity in the art before we do another run of schwag. Not that I mind my lines going on the schwag, but you gotta admit that one that Pantani did really stands above the rest.

It translates roughly to "continue the fight with fire and sword" or, "the fight continued with fire and sword". Kind of an ancient school version of "by any means necessary".

We could use other Latin phrases too, if that one is a bit too extreme:

May barbarians invade your personal space!
Utinam barbari spatium proprium tuum invadant!

Non calor sed umor est qui nobis incommodat.
It's not the heat, it's the humidity. (this would be a good one for Baltimore)

Nihil curo de ista tua stulta superstitione.
I'm not interested in your dopey religious cult.

Neutiquam erro.
I am not lost.

Don't let the bastards wear you down.
Noli nothis permittere te terere.

There's no one here by that name.
Nemo hic adest illius nominis.

You've been misusing the subjunctive.
Abutebaris modo subjunctivo.

The devil made me do it!
Diabolus fecit, ut id facerem!

May faulty logic undermine your entire philosophy!
Utinam logica falsa tuam philosophiam totam suffodiant!

If you fail, the secretary will disavow all knowledge of your activities.
Si fallatis officium, quaestor infitias eat se quicquam scire de factis vestris.

Inopia Celeritatis
A mild dyslexia that makes it impossible to arrive on time.

Uno Danis Beemeratium,
I like your latin translations. Many of which would make fine bumper stickers. I especially like the one on "dopy religious cults." I have some neighbors who and I'm not kidding, talk in tongues. They believe it's like climbing a ladder to get closer to God. Anyways what's the Latin for "Doh"? :wink:

Pantani's latest work can be seen on new white Vespa with pink polka dots all over it. I am not kidding. And yes I would drive it if only the clown shoes would fit. :wink:

Keep up the good work guys...... I love the monochrome work. I've made one of the red/black templars B/W and may use it on the B/W race leathers. Macrays in Denver suggested a basic whole back could be done for under a $100......... and that last one xtain would work great on a kidney belt back lower......... nice

one is the closest translation of "internal combustion" I could find, the other comes form "navigare necesse est, vivere non est necesse.

WOO! Great stuff Xtian! Me thinks big patches or t-shirts of those would be great! And ScootFighter, there are some fly-by-night operations here in Baltimore that will do custom bling bling medallions for short bread, the price goes up if ya want solid gold or real diamonds tho :P

I'll have more stuff together soon, I can't wait to see what else you guys come up with :mrgreen:

Mtne, if you do the templar shield on the back of your jacket I want to see photos!!!

As I have been busy and dragging my ass on the Banner thing, I will try and get it done for the rally. Since I don't have the apropriate photoshop or illustrator skills............ I'm figuring on using the "new utmc card" which dan sent as the banner unless someone can produce and forward something better by tomorrow............. Personally I've got a good idea of what I'd like to see, but am incapible of doing in it.

dan you have mail.

the card for those who haven't seen it.

I've always thought that the UTMC would look good strung up on a post....er....well you know what I'm sayin :wink: Seriously tho, I like Disco's idea (now we need cooler hats tho).

BTW Mountain, the font on the shield is Ironwork (Caps), and the one on the roundel is Ironwork in lower case. The faded typerwriter text from the card is Royal Pain (you can get the same affect by running Times through the washing machine once or twice tho). I'll see if I can convert em over to PC and send em to ya.

I've actually got the day off so I'll work on this in between catching up on my email. ever notice how email is the first thing to fall behind when the basement floods?. Damn, I got new floorboards on my bike 2 weeks ago and still haven't gotten a chance to ride it! Maybe a short romp on the scooter, then email and the banner :D I'm also gonna try testing some of Xtians designs on t-shirts (got some new iron-on transfers that work pretty good). Time for breakfast now tho!
