Good colors. The black will be very subtle on asphalt but it might work well because of the flowers in her hair.

I'm really taken with this design! I had never heard that fable before and i love it, but i do agree there needs to be some jewel tones to do a hummingbird justice.

I love this just how it is, black and white. Simple but very eye-catching.

Re: Quetzal



You did a great job of building the patterns into the bird's shapes and textures. It's that mark making that ties the shirt design to the Mexican theme as much as the native bird.

I don't think it's the intent, but this looks a bit like a "fat, lazy Mexican" joke.

Bad ideas free; brilliant ideas by derangement.

Re: The Three Amigos



Any particular reason they are chips? I am just wondering if I am missing something important. I have watched the three amigos roughly 300 times - but it has been almost 3 months since the last time so maybe there are chips in there somewhere?

paigeg wrote:Are you watching the same movie I am [TNT Saturday 8-11 EDT]? Mmm. Synchronicity. Not sure that puts it on-theme, though, without a better tie to the Olmecs.



Actually, I thought a LOT about this before committing it to the derby. These carvings are huge, and they didn't just make them for everyone. With as little as we do know about the Olmecs, essentially just their ruins and these giant heads and a few pieces of jewelry, I'm skeptical that we really know what the giant heads were about.

I guess that you had to be kind of a big shot (rim shot!) to get a giant head made of you- a general, a hero, someone a bit silly, maybe a politician. The scientists think they were kings. The lunatics think they were astronauts . Whoever they were, I think you had to be some kind of celebrity to get a giant head carved of you.

so, yeah, I think it says something about the topic. Maybe not so simple 'Mexican' as tacos with shiny eyes, but a real, actually serious attempt at a comment on the culture of the region.

Um, Boots, Kevlar wanted me to tell you that it's him and not you. He thinks you're really cool and beautiful and talented and great, but he's just not ready for real commitment. He'd tell you himself, but he's real upset and taking some strong medication.

That's actually the one element that turns me off to the design. The reflection isn't correct for beams from a distant sun...instead, the undistorted reflection makes the sun look like it is resting on the edge of the water. It bugs me.

Re: Tequila Sunrise



"Take another shot of courage
Wonder why the right words never come
You just get numb
It's another tequila sunrise, this old world
still looks the same,
Another frame..."

6 colors on navy. I was actually trying to do a different color scheme from my other entry, but anything else looked wrong! And again, would love feedback. Thanks!

edit: I tried showing the smaller placement that would be for womens shirts which should avoid large agave targets (though I'm sure my husband would say that would be AWESOME), but overall it would be larger on the mens shirts.

Re: Quetzal



Beautiful. You did a really nice job w/ the interwoven patterns. I like the colors of the art, I don't know that I like it on that color shirt...brown might be cool w/ lighter brown branches. I still love it though.

aswati wrote:+1. Excellent colour combination! The squares on the right hand side look perfect. The textures look great too. The waves on their own look good. However, there is something about the inverted-trapezoid (that the waves form)that has something..misplaced, I guess. Maybe keep both sides of the wave formation consistent in pattern/have only one border of waves??



Thanks! Yeah, I struggled with the wave, initially I had it much smaller, but that also looked weird.

blk909 wrote:I would love it without the wave thing. Just the side design.



I think I should have just given up on the wave part...but it looked so cool in my head! Ah well, something to work on at some point.
