    So I'm pretty good at opening Adobe Illustrator, picking a font, and typing "talkbeer.com" and "batch 003" and stuff like that. I can even resize that text and change colors. Unfortunately, I suck at creating anything more artistic, even that "it looks like crap but it was on purpose" kind of art. (Secretly, that's my favorite kind.)

    Anyway, I digress. We are planning a bunch of new stuff, and I know that out of the 2,500 of you, there have to be some halfway decent artists, or at the very least, some people who know some halfway decent artists. You guys know the site, and you know its predominant themes. There is a lot of room to be extremely creative. Right now, I'm looking for ideas for new merch, including glassware, t-shirts, stickers, blinking LED belt buckles, and just about anything else. Maybe even something to replace that ever-so-elaborate logo we have going on at the top of every page.

    For now, compensation will be in the form of perks, mountains of free merch, and other such things. I can promise that I will definitely make it worth your while if we use your work, you will always be credited, and your contributions will not be forgotten down the road (when I invite you to join me in Scrooge McDuck'ing our way across a pool full of rare lambic at my mansion).

    Send me a message if you're interested! Reply and tag anyone you think ought to see this message! Thanks all!

    TalkBeer.com action figures are a must for any serious internet bullshitter.

    And lots-o-beer bellies.

    Edit: I think we could just buy King Pin from Spiderman figures in bulk and change the heads.

    You could recreate your favorite beer tastings. Reminded me of Waiting for Guffman

    ISO MarkIntihar first edition action figure with 22 oz TB snifter and 2x4 wrapped in barbed wire. Would also consider JulianB and Waylon Mercy tag team champion package. But would really prefer to get a deal done for MarkIntihar first.
