[games_access] T-shirt thoughts.

I like Richard's art a lot. However, I do agree that the joystick looks like 
it's part of the wheelchair, and might be a bit confused. I also like it 
being close to an arcade game, but I don't think the weathered look would 
suit us so much.

I'm wondering:

How good it would look in the middle of a T-shirt with Thomas's text around 
it in some fashion.

If it would look better with the joystick raised slightly off the 
wheelchair.

With Michelle's idea of a generic video game character in the chair / 
leaping from the chair grabbing the joystick and so on.

What about using graphics from Berzerk? Are Stern still in business? I don't 
remember a reissue of Berzerk. If not, maybe some of the graphics from a 
Vectrex which are public domain I believe if we're not making a profit? 
(Okay this bits a bit loose).

If the wheelchair design from my web-site would be of any use? I have a high 
res version we could tinker with if any one wants a go.

Cheers,

Barrie
