A design and marketing agency commissioned this tee-shirt design as a gag gift for one
of its clients. It mimics the Garbage Pail Kids trading cards that became a craze in the mid-1980s.

The original cards would often feature a kid who was half-and-half. The inspiration for this particular kid, was the client’s oft-repeated assertion that his employees were “half-geek, half-human.”

Scroll down for detail images, including a photo of the guy who was transformed into a GP Kid for this occasion.
