i couldn't find a haberdashery category so here it is.
backstory: one summer a few years ago, my cousins and i made hats to commemorate, um, the summer. it was my aunt's idea. anyway that was the summer when i first read jhonen vasquez, and therefore my hat was covered with little flying bunny things and "moo!" and so on.
NOT AWESOME. anymore.
fast forward to last night, when we were watching the third batman movie. i saw two-face's top hat (the psychedelic side) and said "man i wish i had a hat like that." i say that about a lot of things in the batman movies. including adam west. anyway, fast forward again to this morning when i saw a poster advertising hoagies at a local stop-shop. the poster was done in peter max's style.

if you look closely you can still see some of the non-awesome shining through.
specs: blank white craft store paint, google images search for "peter max", sharpie (which didn't work very well), acrylic paint and puffy paint for the outlines.
edit: i am sorry about the picture quality, really. my dad's camera is... not the best. but you get the idea, right? the colors are accurate, at least.... and if this post is posted in the wrong place, or if there is something else wrong with it, please, let me know.
edit again: peter max was an influential artist in the 70s, btw; if you've seen "Yellow submarine" or any of those old woodstock posters with the "quintessential 70s" font, you've seen his style. this hat is only meant to imitate that style; it looks like a cheap knockoff because it is, in other words.
