Pretzel Rings

Update: I started making products with this image on Zazzle, and received an email from them saying the image infringed on intellectual property rights (by the official Olympics, I'm assuming), so had to take it down (actually, they removed all the products for me, thank you.) 
I should have known, but honestly, it didn't even occur to me that this would be a problem. I did wonder why there were no good  Olympics images on there when I did a search, and was amazed that no one had thought of this idea before. 
So now I have this cool image and nowhere to use it. Sigh. 

Original post:

I had this idea as I was going to bed the other night. I was thinking of what I wanted to draw next, and thought "ooh, maybe pretzels", then BAM, from wherever these things come from, this fell and hit me.

Its all done with colored pencils. I could have done a digital piece, but that wouldn't have been any fun.

(Apologies for the © notice overkill, but I figure this is exactly the kind of image that will be ripe for plucking.)

Is it hot where you live? Its 100 and something here. Bleah.

Olympic Pretzels, now that is some wicked inspiration! Fabulous idea and looks fabulous too.
Stupid hot here and has been for weeks. Yuck.

This is just such fun, Paula! Some enterprising pretzel company needs to snap this up! (For a large fee, of course!)

Who would have dreamed this would be copyrightinfringement???

I like it too! Here is a site/email group, that helps artists with legal matters. Maybe they can help?http://artistsunderthedome.org/mailman/listinfo/artistsunderthedome_artistsunderthedome.org
