BADbandana 3: Spirited Bones

I love traditional bandanas, but they need a little extra pizzazz. 

My design for BADbandana 3 features a host of frolicking skeletons. This is the bandana you need for Halloween or for your next funeral.

I’m going to reproduce this drawing as a 21-inch square bandana. With white creatures on a midnight-black background, these bandanas will be 100 percent cotton printed right here in the good-old USA. (Dyed—not that stiff, obnoxious silkscreening we all hate.)

Glimpse of design details.

What do you get? More than 100 spirited skeletons combined into a serenely symmetrical composition that is an homage to the classic bandanas of yesteryear.

Packed in sets of three so you’ll have spares for gift giving.

Bandanas have so many uses in fashion, personal hygiene, and piracy. No one is going to want just one. So I’m offering reward levels of BADbandanas in packs of three.

BADbandanas make superb gifts. Even if you aren’t a big fan of bandanas, you may want to get a bunch to share with your friends, family, and favorite funeral directors. Because it is covered with skeletons, BADbandana 3 will be an especially good gift for friends who are dieting or are anatomy students.

Do you need a reminder of how you can use your BADbandanas? Bandanas have countless practical uses. Shown are just a few.

Risks and challenges

The basic techniques of making bandanas are centuries old. But even this simple and mature technology can probably still go wrong in surprising ways. This is my third bandana project, so experience ought to be a help. I’ll do all I can to anticipate problems and vanquish threats.

Whatever happens, I promise to get my sponsors whimsical bandanas as soon as possible after the project closes. I feel confident you’ll be wearing BADbandana 3 for Halloween.
