Concerning Recycling

Had this T shirt idea when we were coming back to Durban last night. More stuff of mine is being circulated on e-mail without my consent (Luckily its my Cyanide and MJ stuff so my name is in there) So in future i'm going to embed a little 'concerning MJ' in my pics etc. I dont mind my stuff on the net - i just like being credited thats all. I have no graphic design skills whatsoever so I whipped this up using Paint


Thoughts? Criticism? Is it in poor taste?

mmm, what you say?

MJ

I really like the idea but I dont see the link between the recycling logo and inner jihad?

Interesting.. reminds me of a shirt I bought a few yrs back (I think from Raiman) the Mujahideen one - The struggle within is greater?

I would have centralized the font and put it below the recylce sign.

I agree with Nafisa on font placing, i think you should put that trademark on t-shirt too.

I will check how this t-shirt comes out before I try out the big venture of birthday present tshirt.

Anon - jokes arent as funny when explained but ...
Recycling tin
Jihad within
I cant explain beyond that.

Aaasia - Thanks :) Its always awesome to get feedback from a Comedy master

Nafisa - Thanks :) Its always awesome to get feedback from a Culinary master. I will centralise it - thanks

Waseem - Is this one of those emo things;)?

Irfan - ten points for the Imogen Heap idea - it comes back to my central question - what does Islam mean to me. Im going to articulate this into a blog soon.

anon - Its a play on the phrase - the greater jihad is within. I use the recycling logo to symbolise that we as muslims should protect the environment and one way that we can is by recycling. Hence Tin - as in 'recycling metals/. Hope that clears it up :)

Fida - thanks for the input. I didnt think it was too obvious but pperhaps you are right - next one will be a little more subtle
