Baja Ha-Ha Graphic Arts Contest

About five years ago, the Grand Poobah decided it was high time that there be new graphics on the Baja Ha-Ha and Some Like It Hot T-shirts. As the wheels of progress grind slowly at the Ha-Ha World Headquarters, we’re just getting around to implementing that change.

The folks who do all the T-shirts have graphic designers who can come up with artwork, but we thought it would be fun to see if any Ha-Ha folks or Latitude readers would like to try submitting artwork.

In the case of the Ha-Ha T-shirt, we’re kind of partial to a simple, stylized look, such as you’d find on old fruit crates or vintage posters. But we’re open minded, so let your creative thoughts run wild.

Art deco poster art, such as this old Catalina ad, is really eye-catching.

In the case of the Some Like It Hot T-shirt, we still like the general concept of a chili pepper of some sort on the back, around which the names of all the entries can flow. But again, feel free to let fly with whatever crosses your mind. If you have more than one idea, don’t be shy. Send your submissions to Richard.
