This is my riff on the iconic tee (John&Paul&Ringo&George.) by Experimental Jetset, the Dutch art trio.
To see what they think of the idea of using them for inspiration, Read this part of an interview with Experimental Jetset from a typography blog – “It’s always an awkward sensation to realize that something that you designed with your own hands now exists completely independent from yourself. The shirt is a phenomenon in its own right, and there’s nothing we can do about it. But then again, that might be the ultimate achievement as a designer: to create something that lives a life on its own. It’s classic Frankenstein really. We’re quite lucky that all the ‘bootleggers’ fully acknowledge us. Whenever the shirt pops up, on a website, weblog or forum, the caption always mentions that the shirt is inspired by us. So that’s a big plus. If people would deny that we designed the original shirt, now that would be frustrating; but luckily, that isn’t the case”
