Thumbs Championship T-Shirt!

Here out latest t-shirt project, published yesterday on Threadless and ready to be voted! If It will receive enough votes, it will be printed as a Threadless t-shirt. So, if you like it, help us voting it on this page or just share it as much as you can (on facebook, twitter, real life, and so on..). Thank you so much!

But let's talk about the t-shirt and the relative championship:  the Thumbs Championship it's a tough championship where tough people have to use thumbs to win against tough opponents with tough thumbs. :-P

The design is created in two versions: the "White Corner" version and the "Red Corner" version, as the two corners of the thumbs fight ring. The first one it's printed on a white t-shirt, the second one on a red t-shirt.  On the white t-shirt the gloves are red and the string is brown (print in 8 colours: reds, browns and white). On the red t-shirt the gloves are light brown and the string is brown (print in 8 colours: browns, grey and white).

On the back the string continues with the knot, and there's the "Guildford '42 Thumbs Championship" name. A funny 3D effect it's given by the shadows and it will make you look like a real Thumb Champion!
