Re: Marsupial in my pocket
I think it's wrong to set up art and t-shirts as mutually exclusive things. The people that ride Ramy aren't suggesting that t-shirts should be a medium for museum quality art.
But the other issue is the fact that there isn't any reason why t-shirts CAN'T be a medium for that kind of art. I think it is HIGHLY disingenuous to reduce the criticism that those posters are making to the absurd suggestion that it's just a t-shirt, so their criticisms are invalid. After all, there are almost ALWAYS derby entries that fog or hang out around the fog that could qualify as art.
Specifically about the design, I'm not a fan of fake pocket shirts either, but in terms of what we usually get from Ramy, I think this is a step in the right direction. It's still his style and a cute, fluffy animal, but I have to give Ramy credit for the koala actually being recognizable and free of any of the typical deformities or issues that his style usually gives to the fluffy critters he likes. I think he also pulled off the pocket illusion well, even if I don't know how good it will look on a shirt on a person.
I'm also curious how the placement on a female will look.
