In grade school, getting caught doodling got you a scolding, a detention, or the opportunity to draw even more doodles for an expensive child psychiatrist. Turning childhood distraction into a career, Zom-Bot's Travis Pitts
A Savannah resident who in high school self-published a comic called TOEJAMBOREE to international nerd acclaim, Pitts employs all manner of media to create coolly hilarious, cartoonish takes on pop culture. The 14 1980s-inspired t-shirts range from the shooting-starred NBC riff "The More I Know...the less I care", to an ad for the intergalactic malt liquor "Hoth 45" (top-popping Lando flanked by swooning Princess Leia), to a number recommending the law offices of "Bel, Biv & Devoe" (why do you need them? "because sometimes...That Girl is Poison!"). Low-priced prints include the red, white, & blue "Zombiganda" series (a riff on patriotic WWII artwork, wherein the enemy is the undead) and foreign remakes of classic movie posters, awesomely including "Terminateur" and "Il Predator", and awesomely not including "Le Police du Jardin d'Enfants".
The absolute latest: "The Only Coz Worth Dying For", featuring a sweater-clad Heathcliffe Huxtable raising a Che-style fist. Under his rule, doodling will get you locked up as a dissident -- take a wild guess if dissidents get pudding.
