Here’s an illustration from a series I’ve been working on for Mocavo.com. I had to change the color of the text in this one because a Texan I know informed me that it was the team color of one of the big rival college sports teams. Even with the changes, the color is still rather close to “burnt orange,” but hopefully the Texans out there will be satisfied to know that I offer no allegiance to any Texan football teams. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who knows less about American football than I do!


A big thank you to Blaine for noticing that the flag was actually that of Argentina. Sorry, Texas! Here’s your flag done right:

    Jess it was so nice I found this and wanted to hanging it up on my wall. Then I looked at it semi close and that is not the Texas flag. That is the Chile flag. The Texas flag does not have the red going east to west the whole way because the blue goes north to south the whole way.

      By George, you're right! I had no idea that the two were so similar. But nothing that a little Photoshop can't fix.
