Nicely done. I totally could see this on the rack at Savers... and watching a couple of trendy kids fight over it. It's RETRO! It's MINE!

As always, great work!

Glad you think so! I'm a fan of these kind of vintage characters and layouts too. I spent a little time on Friday to research this specific period and absorb General Mills cereal style. It looks typical at first glance but then... the horror... the horrorrr!

I really appreciate the comment, thanks Carpathian.

Well, this is the first time I've ever entered a design anywhere and I was wondering if I was successful at all. I'm a little embarrassed; they have Monrobots on Futurama? I've never seen that. I was actually trying to make a play on Warhol's series of "Marilyns" with the basic silkscreen coloring and image (vintage), but then have it be a robot (new). I don't think my design makes this allusion clear enough... Anyway, better luck next week!

SnowQueenVT wrote:Hi Bootsboots! I like the idea you came up with and it is very 80's, back then people were not as aware of the mass suffering that is going on in Africa. I wish that the word "maybe " was dropped from the end slogan...(Don't be upset)I know that is part of this shirts appeal to many because it makes it funny, but you have alot of power , the power to do good and the shirt could have that power as well... I spent a year hand painting little ornaments of african children and wrapping them in net to symbolize the gift of a" net for life" (they sleep under these nets because the malaria carrying mosquitos strike at night.) One net costs 10-15 dollars, but saves the very life of the orphaned children beneath it. I sold several hundred of the ornaments around Christmas and the proceeds went straight to Nets for LIfe. Well the situation over there is horrible. In parts of Africa 80 percent of the children are orphans. It is Hell on Earth . So when we say please think of the children , I wish we could all seriously , do that. I couldn't wear this shirt as it is although it is so darn close for me...just a word or two. Apathy coalition is very very funny to me though and I laugh every time I check it out on the reckoning. You have a happy sense of humor and you are a nice person too. I can tell that, use your power for good wonder woman!

PS my daughter loves you and always says "OH Boot Boots, I love her!" She always says "Oh, thats my friend BootsBoots."A huge fan!



I'm happy to be your daughter's friend. I like to dress up like a princess sometimes. We probably have that in common.

I agree with those who think this shirt looks out of place in a vintage derby. Just not feeling the vintage-ness.

Ramy, is there any chance you'd care to address the vintage question yourself? I'm genuinely, non-hostiley (word?), non-threateningly curious what brought about this idea in a vintage themed derby? The first thing I thought of was that old movie with Gene Wilder and the black guy, where one of them is blind and the other is deaf. Where are ya coming from on this one?

Vintage issues aside, I've never been a big fan of monkeys. I agree with the comments about the ears being too low, and that the head should be tilted back more on the third monkey. Also, I agree that the design in general feels kind of flat.

Consider a re-sub? I still wouldn't vote for it (which is worth nothing), but I would gain some respect for you and your future designs (which is worth slightly more than nothing).

This is good for your first entry. The drawing is nice and I like how you did the subtle distressing without going overboard. Just keep entering and paying attention to other people's entries and what you like about them (or don't like). Good job on your first!

I love the picture, less a fan of the "nibbles". It is pretty self explanitory, and the pic is the focus, but the name dominates the shirt, imho

I am always talking about something being better than sliced bread. This shirt is a must have. I especially like the circles in the background. It gives it a wonder bread feel that makes it more authentic. It made me giggle pretty hard.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong!



"Sein" is an irregular verb. If you used "Sind", it'd be understood as a question. He is trying to use the imperative, even though to be 100% correct it'd gotta be "seien" - "sein" is colloquial, but I do not know whether that's on purpose. Unfortunately, I'm orderign from Germany and don't like the slogan "Trink und sei fröhlich" would probably work, but with the formal form mixed with a colloquial word, it just does not sound right to me, especially since the style otherwise does not fit addressing the reader formally

It is on topic from the 70's tv show Good Times where the lead character always said "Dynomite!"

(people used to go around saying that, it was fun.)



Thanks! It's nice to feel young by missing references ;)

Thanks, no one I know cared to see it, and I REALLY need to see Shutter Island before anything. I think I'll give it a go if I'm in the theater going mood. I agree your statement of it not having enough zombies is turning me off a bit, but it's not a make or break for me.

Thanks for the feedback. My style winds up coming through very strong in pretty much all I do, I realize that, but I figure it's part of what makes me a potentially recognizable artist. I'm never against trying new things and ideas, but for the most part I do what I enjoy and can place my integrity and interest in fully.
