Christopher Columbus: Fail!

Recently, for an illustration class I am taking, I was assigned a project to create a t-shirt design that required twisting history around. We were asked to take a moment in history and portray it in a different way than how it really happened. To put it quite simply, turn history around in a funny and interesting way.

I will thank the walls of my bedroom for a small majority of the inspiration. The wallpaper consists of compasses and old style ships. Can you say random? I know, but my father bought the house this way and, to be honest, I like the wallpaper, so get over it! Anyways, on with the story. It got me thinking about the seas and the days of sailing. Naturally, Christopher Columbus came to mind.

Can you imagine though? The shirt says it all.
