It certainly grabs attention -- which is not unheard of in Mandalorian life. Armour, bright colours, different language -- Mandalorians do a lot to differentiate themselves. :)

Thanks for your comments. This is turning into a fun little diversion for me. Here is another one:

One of the things I miss about living in Japan was the variety in men's clothing styles. Pink was just another color. Floral-type prints didn't just go on Hawaiian shirts. There were feminine and masculine ways of applying the same things. There was context, of course (suits and ties for work, for example), but in casual wear the rule seemed: If it looks good on you or you like it, wear it! Truuueee, I did see some off fashion statements at times...

Almost done with a new little project. Should have something to post on lunch. I really, really, really hope everyone likes it!

Text: Because knowledge and a sharp tongue also belong in a Mando's arsenal, MANDO'A.ORG (In Mando'a top, in English bottom)

Notes: Here is one idea I had that might make a nice logo for T-shirts or stickers or whatever. Let me know what you think?

Thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking about making an all-Mando'a or mixed Mando'a-English version. That said, I am making a T-shirt print with the Mando'a orthograhpy in the background. I should have pic's by morning.

EDIT:

Aaand, of course, ran out of ink!! Fierfek!! To be continued around noon when the stores re-open... sigh.

OK, I received some helpful comments, critiques, and advice, and I made some changes to both the logo idea and the 'banner' for a T-shirt print. Here are the changes:

As always, I welcome your comments, ner vode.

Dunno why I didn't get a notification that you posted these until now...because that's some pretty boss work, vod. I would buy that last logo design on things, or as a printed vinyl sticker / stencil. Only critique is the angle of rotation with the words lacks symmetry. However it also calls more attention to the words themselves, creating a slight tension between symmetry and asymmetry (I remember being told that such contrast is a good thing when I took a 2D Design class in my community college days).

I have a loosely-defined concept with the Resol'nare, ordered to put "speak the language" last, or in a different colour or highlighted in some way, followed by Mandoa.org (or a front/back t-shirt dealie):

I second this notion, a Resol'nare shirt would be fantastic. I've long been wishing for a proper Mando'a shirt...

I finally got around to making my first MANDO'A.ORG T-shirt! Sorry the picture turned out a little blurry.

Well, I'm pretty sure I cannot sell any of this because of copyrights, so you're free to use it however you like!

I think I could probably give stuff away for free, and may do giveaways occasionally to drum up some excitement.

What is a spreadshirt?

I feel like you can probably get by selling some Star Wars fan-art (which this might fall under) so long as you don't get too big with it. I'm not really sure though. I've seen plenty of people selling Star Wars themed merchandise on Etsy and whatnot, including some (less stellar than yours) Mando'a shirts.
