Imagine a man with literally no sympathy. A man whose pitiless, deadpan face does not flinch one millimetre whilst catapulting seven tons of dog manure into the middle of a Salvation Army charity Picnic, using a home-made trebuchet. That, friends, is Bernie: misanthropic, inventive and most of all, wantonly vengeful.
He came into being during a rather stressful period in which I felt a bit helpless in life, and so needed an outlet – a character whose escapades and bizarre revenges were the antithesis of everything I stood for. Within a few short months I had filled a notebook with cartoons, and this product you see before you represents Bernie in all his sullen glory.
When you buy this shirt (and I hope you will), you are not just buying a t-shirt – you are saying “If you wrong me just a tiny little bit, so help me – I’ll knock your house down with a chieftain tank.”
On a more technical note – while Bernie does appear slightly grey in this picture, he comes out with a more pinkish hue on the printed t-shirt, as intended.
