Muppets World of Friendship by Durkinworks Muppets World of Friendship by Durkinworks
This piece, entitled "World of Friendship" was my entry for the Threadless Muppets t-shirt design contest.

The world of The Muppets is crazy and chaotic, with such strong and contrasting personalities that it would seem it could never be contained.

Only a frog like Kermit could reign in, encourage, lift up and support this world in the truest meaning of friendship.

This hand-drawn picture depicts over forty of the most famous and beloved Muppets (with some personal favorites thrown in for fun).

Looking at that made me want to see "The Muppets" and "Muppets Most Wanted" on Blue Ray if I had a Blu Ray player.

A very great pic! That must be a lot of work.

Hello, I work at WeLoveFine and came across your work. This is a cool piece! Love your style! We just launched our 'Sesame Street' fan contest today and it would be great if you considered submitting! We'd love to see a your interpretation of Sesame Street :)!…

If I had Dr. Teeth's long arms, I'd give them all a hug, including Sweetums and Thog!

Sweetums is my favorite Muppet, along with Statler and Waldorf.  And of course, I adore Kermit!

Love this. Though missing are competing rival jug bands, The Gogolala Jubilee Jugband and Lubbock Lou and his Jughuggers. Also, were Gonzo in his jalapeno pepper vest, I'd have expected Marvin Suggs to appear, as well. A few others are gone also, like canines Muppy and Baskerville the Hound, glutton Luncheon Counter Monster, brain surgeon Dr. Phil Van Neuter, singer Johnny Fiama, the Frackles, Male Koozebanian Creature and Female Koozebanian Creature, Bobo the Bear (for Uncle Deadly), Mildred Huxtetter, rock group Solid Foam (Digit, Clifford, Beard, Flash and the unnamed female drummer), new addition 80's Robot. However, I can't expect you to include every Muppet from the entire history from 1975-present. That'd be too much work. So that said, I congratulate you on this brilliant piece by posting [link].

This was originally for a Threadless Muppets competition a few years ago. With a few exceptions (Pepe and Walter) I was trying to keep it original Muppet Show. So no Emmet Otter, Phil, Johnny, Bobo, Solid Foam, Jim Henson Hour, Muppets Tonight, etc. Therefore, I put Gonzo in his classic Muppet Show tuxedo. No Marvin Suggs, but I do have a Muppaphone. I fit as many characters as I could, there's about 40 Muppets there. Any more and the pic would have needed to be smaller and wouldn't read as well on a shirt.
