OK, so my last sun-addled brainstorm did get me started on a T-shirt logo. Here are my first inklings:
I’m using the hot pink outline to emulate the hydrogen alpha spectrum you see in eclipse prominences, and a nice fuzzy corona. The font is pretty crazy and goes well with the theme. The background subject is going to be a solar eclipse with the sol part of the word over the sun, and luna over the moon.

After a lot more work, I think the design is done.
I added a starfield background, A hydrogen alpha image of the sun, and a nice, cratery moon. Eclipse aficionados will no doubt realize this image is not representative of an actual solar eclipse. The moon would be a black shadow, and the stars would be washed down into the blacks from the heavy filtering needed to show the sun in this way. And what the heck is that fake lens flare doing way over there on the left? I’m really starting to think this has been Photoshopped. I broke up the word parts with alternating colors. Hopefully it’s appealing.
By the way, It’s weirdly hard to find royalty free images of just stars online. Usually something else has been centered in the foreground. The field I used here came from the top of a NASA photo describing the Catalina Sky Survey (asteroid hunting efforts) on Mt. Lemmon near Tucson.

The first one!
The one shown here is a large Hanes tagless. This is the custom shirt where you can fill in the four lines of text with what you want. Note the top line is larger text, and there’s a gap between the 2nd and 3rd.
Order one for yourself! The next eclipse is just a few orbits away!
The dark shirt styles have white ink in the image. While the image is more breathable than typical T-shirt paint, it is less breathable than the other style shirt without the white paint.
But wait, there’s more!
Ron Popeil would be proud. In addition to shirts, I also have some stickers that look great on laptops, autos, and eclipse gear.
And some great coffee mugs
