Default O/T - artwork wanted

I'm looking for someone to help out with a T-shirt idea. I need a caricature of some kind of character on a Slingshot recumbent trike, similar to the goose used on this one. It can be a goose or whatever...not really looking for a rat fink style character other than maybe the proportions??

and here is a Slingshot trike





Here's what an original trike looks like:

Some wanted features would be the front wing, drilled spindles, rear disc brake, etc. PM me for details if interested. Thanks.

I'm looking for ideas or actual artwork. Cheap is good, free is better. This will come out of my pocket with no chance to make money off the t-shirts because there are only a handful of these trikes know so only a handful of people to want a shirt.

The idea is something that incorporates the slingshot trike (similar to a slingshot dragster) and/ or it getting shot out of a slingshot???

Thanks.

Dusty,,, Iv been checking out the "normal" recumbunt trikes but I really like the style and looks of the slingshots.. Does yours handle better then the normal trikes?

I would think with the longer wheelbase it would be more comfortable and stable at speed, but with a longer turning radius...

No, these things are tanks compared to modern recumbent trikes. They are nice at speed (had it to 25 mph) but they turn like crap ans some say they flip easily because of too much weight on the rear. It has about a 70/30 weight bias on the rear wheel. Modern trikes have about 40/60. I have a KMX also that is world's apart from the Slingshot and it's not considered a top end trike. Try out a few from Terratrike or Catrike and you will be pleasantly surprised. Catrikes are very nice but a little pricey (still considered mid-range for price, high end for performance). Tera Trikes are awesome for the money. I rode a Cruiser and really liked it. The Catrike Speed I tried out sits too low for my old ass.

There are usually plenty in your area on craigslist. Check out http://www.utahtrikes.com/ for all kinds of info and styles.
