Pampling’s Reservoir Drinkers

Reservoir Drinkers by melonseta uses the colored framing of Reservoir Dogs as a uniting theme for this array of cartoon drinkers. I think a lot of the fun here is imagining the worlds of these characters colliding, that they all might meet up in the same pub and go off on a massive bender together. The suits and sunglasses are also neat, and give each of the characters a bit more dignity than they sometimes have. The shared uniform makes shared adventures easier to picture. That said, I feel like having two very grey shades right in a row on the left feels like a missed opportunity, making it harder to connect to the colorful roles from the original movie. I’d have liked to see pink backing for Bender and a pink flower in his pocket, giving him a reason to be raging and adding to the narrative 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).
