On Thursday night after Andre Burakovsky scored his second career NHL goal, Peter tweeted this.
— RMNB (@russianmachine) October 17, 2014
The nickname got approximately a million retweets, and we were bombarded with emails and tweets demanding a t-shirt. I oblige. When the RMNB people need something, I come through for the RMNB people.
I spent about eight hours into early Saturday morning making a bunch of illustrations of fish. They all looked like fish, so basically it sucked. I didn’t really like the direction I was going, so I reached out to one of my art school buddies and asked them for inspiration. They sent me back an MP3 of Heart’s 1977 smash hit Barracuda.
So inspired by that song, here is your new RMNB t-shirt.
A few notes:
I’m a big fan of this shirt and this being Burakovsky’s nickname moving forward, so please help us spread the word.
