    This is my entry for the Fail Whale Pale Ale contest. I figure, since the original Fail Whale is so clean, bright, simple and happy, I'd make mine dark, grubby, convoluted and mean and ended up with this sort of graffiti scrimshaw feel, which I find fairly pleasing.

    This image tiles seamlessly, so it'd look good wrapped around a bottle. There is a lot of detail so look bigger.

    The barcode says "twitter".

      You, sir, should brew this beer and send it to me. Or put it on a t-shirt, so I can confuse my friends.

      man, that is awesome... if it doesn't win (which it totally should) you should make it into a tshirt design!

      It's every reason why the Fail Whale makes me want to drink IPA.
