"This IS my other wheel!" Tshirt design

Someone suggested a t-shirt with all the stupid comments we get on it, and whilst I haven't finished that one (much less started) I've got this one done. Clipart by Gilby, 'cause I'm not that talented...

It's not flashy, but I like that idea very much. The only thing I'd suggest is the even with the word "IS" in all capitals, I don't think it is readily apparent that that is the stressed word there. Particularly if you're passing someone quickly(ish).

I'm not suggesting red is the final answer, but something like this might make the point more apparent.

font is a bit plain i think... tho i admire whoever came up with this t shirt. i like the red better. i wish the unicycle in the pic were a trials/muni or at least something beefy looking. After all, this t shirt is directed towards non-unicyclists, and we want to keep the image more "extreme" than "clown". at least thats what i wanna do with the image.

My suggestion would be to beef up the lettering to something bolder and make 'is' italic. (slanted slightly)

And I agree with tennisgh22- a beefier wheel would be better. And maybe turned at an angle, as flat side-on is a little dull.

But then, as Dennis Miller aptly put it, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

And then, as I usually add- "I'm wrong a lot. I'm comfortable there."

That unicycle's saddle doesn't look very comfortable...

Nope, but at least it has lots of spokes...

That's true, but I still think the unicycle could stand a makeover.

Quit whining, its fine. If you want a make over so badly why not step up and make it over yourself.

I'd buy it if it came in black with white font.

Love the idea; the red "IS" works well; love the idea of white on black (still with red "IS"); agree that uni could be beefier, but I'd still buy one! Cushty!
