Fifty Fantastically Frameable Fraggles

Filed under: Art,Feature — Tags: , — Joe Hennes @ 10:29 am

Over the last four months, The Jim Henson Company has been asking all of the talented Fraggle Rock fans out there to put paintbrush to canvas and enter some fan art into their t-shirt contest.  And as you may know by now, I just can’t resist a good t-shirt contest. (As evidenced here and here and here.)

Unfortunately, due to the sheer number of entries (over 500!), the slow-moving website (which I’m sure is due to there being far too many Fraggle fans, which is never a bad thing), and my own lack of free time, I wasn’t able to review every entry as I did with the Threadless and Mighty Fine t-shirt design contests.  Instead, I cherry-picked 50 of my favorite entries and shared them below.

But rest assured, although you won’t be reading that patented ToughPigs snark with every entry, there are still plenty of hilariously bad pieces in the contest, including a photo of a robot and a sketch of a three-eyed tiger who loves math.  I’ll leave it to you to find those entries on your own scavenger hunt.

Be sure to click on the links below each image to cast your own vote, and click here to check out the entire contest and see the other 450 entries!  Voting will be open until August 22.  Good luck to everyone who entered!
