Super Maui-o Bros.

I don't know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but here in Seattle it's cloudy and cool and summer seems to be at least a month (if not more) away.

As such, I'm finding myself attracted to anything and everything that makes me think of the sun and warmth these days--which may explain my excited reaction upon seeing the t-shirt design below this morning.  


Besides the setting, my favorite aspects of the design above--called "Super Maui-O!" and created by Flickr user Lucky1988--are the Blooper riding the Ski-Doo in the upper-right corner, the surfing Bullet Bill to the left of the flip-flop-sporting Mario and the Toad squeezing sunscreen on the toothy Goomba in the center of the illustration.

If you'd like to own a t-shirt bearing this design, vote on it in the next seven days at threadless.com.

I love the Boo putting that tongue to good use on an ice cream cone!

I'm gonna agree, I love the Boo! And I didn't even notice that Bullet Bill! Good eyes

Oh, yeah, the Boo is great, too! I love that he's wearing a fanny pack :)

BTW, apricotsushi -- love the new pic!

Thanks Bryan! I figured it'd make my user name stand out more, haha

Well, I think it's always good to change things up now and then :) I'd change up my avatar, but I like how it goes with my header image. I may be changing that (the header), though, later this year, so if I do I'll either change my avatar to something that matches it (maybe a cartoonish headshot of myself) or change it to a photo of myself. Ahh! :)

Ah, so many decisions! ;) I look forward to seeing what you come up with. If I had the drawing skills to do a cartoon version of myself I would have, but alas it would come out looking like chicken scratch, I think. Haha

Oh, I won't be drawing it myself, Anne! I'm planning to hire someone :) I can doodle well enough, but I definitely wouldn't want to come up with my own avatar or header.
