Not your father

Design description

This shirt is a twist on the popular saying by Darth Vader; "Luke, I am your father." In this version he is simply stating that he is NOT the father, but may your true fathers force be with you/us. I hope you like it.

Congratulations on the win, the quote from the movie is actually "No, I am your father" but it's not like it's a big deal lol.

Lol I like the parody! The t-shirt design and style is awesome too! Just thought you might add a verse at the bottom or behind the t-shirt to reinforce the "His" force be with you.

And I'm sorry Paul, but I'm not exactly sure how this isn't a Christian message.

Stinkin' Sweet. I'd buy it in a jiffy. Not sure as to the whole TM thing, but I see that already came up. As it is, 5/5. If I could give it a six, I would.

You could be right man. I'm not a lawyer so I'm really not sure, but I had thought you needed to to be officially licensed to sell anything that bears a trademarked. Anyways, it's still a rockin shirt and if it does get printed, I'd buy it. :)

And BTW the image wasnt taken from the movie or anything affiliated with a movie from the series. It was a regular john doe in a costume for halloween. If anythying i would imagine a costume illegal versus a design, but i seen plenty of them on the 31st, with none bearing the "Star Wars" name anywhere, but instead playing host to the manufacturers name.

Google "darth Vader shirt" and see the millions of others out there. I myself am now not to sure about how characters work with copyrights, but I have seen my fair share of "parody" shirts. I tried searching the lucas film site and history, and could find nothing stating that you needed permission to use the characters they portray, but at the same time i found no creative commons either. Personally, if someone wanted to expose my work to the public i would be all for it, but im not a MAJOR corporation...Just a 21 year old punk who designs from his bedroom haha..

Awesome shirt man, but though it may not be illegal (still not sure about that one) to make shirts with movie characters, I'm pretty sure Canvas would have Lucasfilm's legal team all over them if they ever printed this shirt. Vader is a highly recognizable and trademarked character for one of the biggest franchises in history, and Mr. Lucas is highly protective of his properties. Anyways, I hate to be a big negative nancy pants, but it's still an amazing shirt :)

I saw this this morning on my way to work. I just wanted to say great execution, text placement...big thumbs up. It's funny because people know I'm a Christian and I frequently say "May the force be with you"...the Holy Spirit. I would def buy this. Even in a male size.

Its not illegal to make shirts with movie characters.

Man I love this, but you know that George Lucas would never let this see the light of day. I'm giving you a 5 and may the force be with you on not getting caught for infringement. I really hope this wins though and if it does I am totally going to buy it. Great job Zach!
