Re: Yay Frendz!



The poem:

I is the green-eyed monster.
I wish I has a frend.
But ev'ryone just run awayz
an' I alone again.

O hai, I like ur flower...
No wai, u like my spikez?!
No I is not a monsters!
Yay frendz! Wat else u likes?

--

The story:

The Green Eyed Monster (we'll call him Gem for short) was always lonely and misunderstood. He was a little emo, to say the least, but he couldn't even mope properly because he was so brightly coloured, and black depressing clothes didn't come in his size.

Gem frequently had temper tantrums and went on rampages. Everyone thought he was just greedy and envious of everyone around him - all those people who had clothes that fit and all those people who had friends. He received his name because, when he was in such a fraught state, his eyes would glow green.

One day, as he was destroying buildings, a little girl fearlessly approached him and offered him a flower. Stunned, Gem sat down (crushing a fire hydrant beneath him) and stared at the girl. The green of rage and envy faded from his eyes and, with tears welling up in his eyes, he reached out for the flower.

Gem was quite anxious as he had never had a friend before, and he wasn't quite sure how he should act.

Later that day, authorities discovered little Suzy in the street, flat as a pancake.

Just kidding.

Actually, little Suzy and Gem became best buds. Suzy came from a rich family and had specially-fitted clothes made just for the green reptillian giant. They lived happily ever after.

Until the Japanese military came to destroy the demonic Godzilla-like beast.

Just kidding.


Thus, my design conceptualizes green in the following ways:

1. Green is jealousy and rage, personified (or, uhh, monsterified) by Gem.
2. Green is peace and tranquility, again displayed by Gem.
3. Green is being new to something, just as Gem was new to making friends.
4. Green is nature, via the flower.
5. Green is money, via Suzy's family fortune.

1 and 5 are the only ones that rely on the story; the other three come through in the design.

Re: The root of all growth



Green is where all things that grow begin. Printed as large as possible.

This world is full of "I want what she/he has." If everyone wants what belongs to everyone else, we will swallow ourselves whole. That, or the Leviathan, a demon of envy, will do the job for us.

Re: Greed Frogs



Greedy little greed frogs from Greedland engorge themselves on fireflies until they can eat no more. After that they're just wallow around on leaves and only contemplate on eating more flies.

Mmm...

The eyes of envy. We've all seen them, and we've all had them.

Re: rethink green energy



This shirt profiles an unlikely candidate for green energy. Unpopular with some, sure.

The design detail has text on it, but the shirt does not (see inset).

Re: Overgrowth



My design “Overgrowth” is a metaphor for the demise of oil. Sooner oil will run out and hopefully be replaced by cleaner energy. The oil pump in the picture has not been used for years and is thus overgrown with ivy. The ivy also represents the new clean energy of the future and the hope that the environment will overcome oil pollution.

Re: The Greens



Sometimes the blues just isn't the right color to express your mood. When faced with this dilema, a new genre must substitute: the greens! And as for the frog, well... he can't help but be green, can he?

This is my third design on shirt woot ever... yay! third time's a charm right? :P

again, i am not a photoshop pro....

Re: Green Tea ZEN



To me, Green represents tranquility and creative energy. I tried to show that here using the symbolism of green tea and a paint brush.

Living in Japan has given me a newfound appreciation for real green tea, it's bitter and frothy and hard to get used to at first. But once you become accustomed to it, it's easy to see why so many cultures have made tea and other soothing beverages a daily ritual. It makes you feel great when you take five minutes just to enjoy a cup of hot tea! Relaxing!

Enjoy!

green conceptually.... green, like novice.... In this olive army, there are clearly two novices, one who is doing pretty well, one who is still pretty, well, green.

I like celery.

Doesn't the shirt itself have to be green?
