However I don't understand how it is lazy, this did in fact take me a fair amount of time to create and finish so in terms of effort I don't feel the lazy aspect. And about the creativity, its there. Just because I am not poking fun at something does not mean I am not interpreting. The goal of this design specifically was to show as the title declares a nice scenic drive where its just nature and the highway synchronized in a scenic moment. I understand you may not have viewed it the same way I have but I hope you see my point of view as well.
Lazy as in the idea, not as in time put into execution. I have NO idea how long a shirt takes to design. A scenic image for road trip is a lazy idea and it lacks creativity. I hate the "make fun of something" shirts, but it seems like you (and a lot of other designers) don't understand that completely literal and funny are not the only two options that exist, though. And you're not interpreting if "it is in fact literal."
