So, after an email from Lucan advising that a large surf company had in fact produced a VERY similar tshirt before me, and after some
navel contemplation on the drive into the day job, I have decided that RPS stays!
I had not seen the other design, nor heard of the furore it caused.
Their tshirt (thanks again for the link, your Lordship) clearly shows Messrs Churchill and Hitler.
Mine has silhouettes of anyman, and they completely neglected young Adolph’s hatred of black people, which I consider to be an integral part of the design I have produced.
I also consider the message to be VERY different ….. mine anti-war – and is by no means trying to trivialise the loss of life and appalling treatment of our fellow man during WWII.
And besides, what’s the point of having a submission to AP if you can’t be just a teeny bit controversial??
