As I was mindlessly channel surfing the other night, I came across an ABC reality show called Shark Tank, where millionaire moguls bid on burgeoning entrepreneur’s business ideas. While I found the show mildly amusing, what stuck with me afterwards was the cool show logo featuring skyscrapers and sharks as seen looking up from underneath.
Then I remembered a certain new Threadless t-shirt I had seen recently called Solitary Dream Pt2 by Budi Satria Kwan, which also features skyscrapers and sharks. And while I usually prefer t-shirts with dinosaurs on them, I did plan on purchasing one for myself.
Note any resemblance between the two?
Not only do both designs consist of skyscrapers and sharks as seen from underneath looking up, but they both similarly feature a sun or light source in the upper righthand corner.
I mean, it all could be a gigantic coincidence, especially considering not that many people actually watch (or have even heard of) ABC’s Shark Tank.
But what if Budi Kwan saw the Shark Tank logo and decided to make a t-shirt design based off of it?
Then why stop there? I would like to suggest his next shirt design come from I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Outta Here!:
