I've seen this image circulating on a couple of horror blogs, and I can see why. Travis Pitts takes the classic cartoon 'Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!' and adds a dose of semi-realism with a more modern horror movie perspective. Here's what the artist had to say about the conceptual process behind his Threadless tee design:
"Sticking with my favorite theme of heroic girls (see: Robot Derby Girl, Diodes are a Girl's Best Friend) and injecting realism or plausibilty to silly pop culture icons (ex: Madness of Mission 6 = PAC-MAN), I knew I wanted to make a certain teen detective her canine companion into the sole survivors of a Monsterpocalypse for the threadless loves Horror contest.
Everyone knows that it's always the timid, quiet, second-string female character that gets the dramatic arc and has the wits and skill to survive most horror movies. I struggled for days trying to come up with a semi-realistic interpretation of this toughened, nerdy survivor-type gal- until I remembered I was dating one, and asked her to model for it. She agreed -took a series of pics herself and held an umbrella in place of the shotgun. She wasn't sure about any of them but as soon as I saw the 3rd or 4th one I knew i had my pose."
Travis Pitts' Scooby-Doo tee, "We've Got Some Work To Do Now", comes in sizes small to extra large for men and women on slate gray shirts at eighteen dollars each. Shirts are available for purchase here. If you liked this, then be sure to check out the rest of Travis' work at his Threadless account and blog site, ZOM-BOT Labs.
