I’m in a real cartoon frame of mind these days, so you’ve been warned! Forecast calls for lots of immaturity and nostalgia.
Originally I thought of a Dr. Claw (villain from Inspector Gadget) executive chair for my IKEA series this past winter, but I put it on the backburner and forgot about it. Returning to the idea, I now see it as overkill just for the purpose of having that famous MAD logo embroidered on the back.
Now I think it would be best if you could turn any chair into the property of a diabolical villain with a seat cover of some sort. Something that could cover the entire seat (like a car seat cover) or just a simple towel-like thing you could drape over the top of the chair.
I am biased, but I have to say this kind of simplicity works. It’s very geeky and makes for a great sight gag, as Dr. Claw was essentially glued to his computer – now you’ll look the part when surfing the web. Just remember to pound your desk and exclaim “I’ll get you next time Gadget! NEXT TIME!”
Hopefully a T-Shirt company on the interweb is interested and produces this item. The Mad logo printed on a small polyester or canvas flag would do the trick. Anyone know of a T-Shirt company that accepts submissions?
