Pampling’s Bat Landing

Bat Landing by Panamerum is a funny take on the familiar Batman bat symbol. In this take, his flat shape and spread wings are the unfortunate fallout from a bloody crash with a wall, a mishap that calls to mind both that bats don’t see well and that Batman is prone to using gadgets and athleticism to travel across city rooftops, something that is definitely not for the clumsy or careless. So it’s funny that instead of an imposing hero achieving impossible feats, we’ve got this chubby animal who has failed to outwit a brick wall. Great concept, and the small details like the realism of the brick pattern and the way the bat’s feet land so awkwardly are choices that add to the ambiance and comical feeling of the piece.

Pampling has two options for winners of their contest. XPress winners earn 1 euro per shirt sold, with a minimum of 100 euros guaranteed. If the design sells well, designers may have the option of earning 500 euros to give Pampling the exclusive printing rights for one year. The second option is Classic winners, who earn 680 euros cash and 120 euros in t-shirts (or 720 euros cash) for the first 400 units and exclusive rights for 3 years. If the design is reprinted, the artist earns 850 euros cash and 150 euros in Pampling products (or 900 euros cash).
