Re: Free your mind


I like the concept but the image and colors are kinda creepy.

I really like this one. It's very simple, but that sort of gives it its elegance. Well done!

Looks great, and I love the dragon wrapping itself around that pen!

As a potential purchaser: I'd have liked this shirt better without the text. It's not because of the phrase itself (you can find basically the same phrase in other languages, too), just I'm not fond of wearing English text in my non-English environment.

Hey, even *I* recognized this, and I didn't read that book in its original language. Yes yes, he's got fans all over the world!

• Random x3 (9 shirts)

The worm itself looks really good, but the positioning seems odd to me. "Is there a snake on your shirt or are you happy to see me?"

Even better, it starts behind a clef! Yes, you can even read music sheets.

Re: yum... i love books!



Cool design - you obviously are a talented drawer based on the accurate perspective of the books and the robust structure of the dog, etc. BUT i think it would look a LOT better if the lines looked more natural and less like they were drawn on a computer. Also play with line thickness a bit more...

One other thing, you can totally sketch something out on one layer and then "ink" it on another layer. If you have your brush set up to go thick to thin using the stylus pressure (I'm assuming youre using a drawing tablet) then the line thickness variation is pretty easy. In the meantime, though, you can just hand draw and ink and then scan it in, too.

Keep up the good work!

Yeah...

It reminds me of that South Park episode in which Mr. Garrison hires a geneticist to grow a certain part of his anatomy on the back of a mouse.

A braille letter is composed of a pattern of six dots within a single 2x3 cell, but the row of cells has to have a common baseline in order to be "read." Dropping dots below that baseline makes it a different letter (or symbol, or short-form word, or contraction.) So I get you wanted seven letters, but you ended up with 14 cells. Braille has an ungodly amount of rules determining how and when you use certain combinations of dots, so how the combinations are read is determined by the context. The only reason I could get anything out of the pattern is because I volunteer with helping a teacher of the vision impaired interline her beginning Braille students homework. Little kids can Braille some funky stuff trying to trick up the teacher!

Sorry I'm "that person" today, I really did like what you are trying to do. I just don't want you to end up with a tattoo that says soup instead of courage, if you know what I mean.



please excuse the artist for taking a little artistic liberty. Yes, they are offset and not all on the same baseline, but there are ONLY 7 cells. he's not the first person to make a PICTURE using braille.
i think it's an excellent design, so does my mother, who is blind.
if it makes it past the derby i fully intend on buying her one.

Love it, but would much prefer it on a navy shirt. WHEN it prints, maybe woot! will do us a solid and print it both ways?

goatcane wrote:Really? You think Melville was taking an "immature and needless jab at people's deeply held beliefs" when he published Moby boghog?

Perhaps every literature professor is secretly anti-religion, right? Moby boghog is an allegory. I can't help it if you didn't see anything past a story about a whale.

Here's the Cliffs Notes version for you;

Whale = Jesus/God

The whole novel was about a man trying to find meaning, trying to find reason, and ultimately obsessed with vengeance against a god who he believes wronged him and (worse) abandoned him.



thats still immature because im a religious person and i took that offensivly. try to upload again but instead of a cross put a pole or something and minus the word "Jesus"

Re: THE ALLEGORY



The trouble is that people who are completely unfamiliar with Moby boghog are going to be, at the least, COMPLETELY confused as to why there is a crucified whale on your t-shirt. (Like I was, before I read your explanation.) And, unfortunately, some people will probably interpret it as offensive, since if they don't understand what your meaning was, they're going to make one up.

Even with it being hard to see, I still like the shirt enough to vote for it

BUT

If you think it is early enough I think it would be great if you did a resubmit since I see that as be a critical part of the shirt-a part that made me lol



Yeah, I couldn't get it to fit and still be legible on the final version. But making it possible to read is one of the reasons I made it so large on the shirt, though it's kind of hard to figure out practical legibility. Also, considering I couldn't even write this reply without my son literally climbing all over me, can't really manage a resubmit today.

I like the concept a lot, but I'm not so sure about the placement on the shirt. The art also looks too small on the shirt template, the image seems lost to me. Keep at it

Looks like its on heather, which I think they don't use anymore. The thumbnail color doesn't match the shirt template color either. I too like the concept though. Maybe add a bit more polish after the rejectionator (probably, maybe) gets through with it and you've got my resub vote.

Do you have to resubmit it? I guess my question is which version would be on the print, because I think the two hands version is much nicer
