Default A new poster idea for HBT

Inspired by the "Stupidest thing somebody's said about your homebrew" thread, I created this concept for a poster. I thought we might be able to collaborate and come up with something that would look nice hung up over our kegerators. Maybe give the "If it ain't Bud, it ain't beer" crowd a little bit of perspective as to the diverse world we live in...

Now, I'll admit I'm no graphic artist. I'm not beholden to any particular aspect of this picture I created. It's just a concept. I've taken an autoCAD course, I've used a variety of cheap photo and graphics programs and I've taken a LOT of photography courses. But I'm basically the equivalent of a "hunt and peck" graphics person. I usually know what I am looking for, but it takes me a long time to find it. As a result, I'm hoping maybe a graphics guru can add their two cents and make a fun poster out of what you see below. Just go ahead and throw some paint on the canvas wherever you see fit.

Here's my initial concept...

Yes, I could... but I won't.

The thing is, I just did it as a small concept picture. I have no doubt that a more skilled graphics artist will come along at some point and throw something far nicer together in far less time.

If that doesn't happen, maybe I'll sit down with a couple of HB's some night and actually make the picture I'm thinking of with more detail and whatnot. Still, I'm betting there's somebody out there with more skills who would like to add their input into my concept. I like your idea though. If I do wind up sitting down and doing it myself, I'll add that in.

Feel free to keep the suggestions coming.

I'd like the large BMC circle to be a magnifying glass... I'll have to go find some clip art or something...
