Re: The Rose That Grew From Concrete ( 2pac Shakur)



...I thought it said The Rose That Grew From Concentrate. I was so confused...

"Riddle me this, riddle me that: who's afraid of the big black bat?"

Re: The Ghost of a Flower



...Yeah. It's kinda...not good. That random blob thing in the corner is supposed to be the soul of the flower...

I was gonna do The Hollow Men by T.S. Eliot, but I can't draw scarecrows...

Nice design but, Beowulf is literature, not poetry.

It's an epic poem, I think that counts

Yep, it may be epic, but it is a poem.

Re: He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven



I had to look it up to see what this was from, so I thought I'd do the copy/paste work for anyone else who was interested.

He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven - William Butler Yeats

HAD I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Re: The Writer



This is my favorite derby. Not only is it inspiring so many beautiful shirts, but I am getting to read so many beautiful poems I never had before.

I really like this design. It's simple, but it conveys everything it needs to. I also really like the colors.

Re: The Falling Flower



This is based on the poem by Arakida Moritake;

A fallen blossom
returning to the bough, I thought-
But no, a butterfly.

I was just sketching while thinking of this poem and a cat kind of ended up in there... not sure how that happened.

Did you zip the file?

You can post images in your signature once you've bought something from a woot site. Then it's pretty easy.

Very nice work, I'll say again. +1

Re: The Writer



Thanks for all the comments, guys!

@HeartlineTwist - I've seen them do it once, but it was a daily.

@missmissa07 - Glad you enjoyed it. I ended up taking a handful of poetry classes for my creative writing minor... I uhh, of course, remember everything, but this one is definitely the first that jumps into my head when I think about pretty words and meter and stuff. .....................Caesura!

I had to read this poem in high school. My teacher made me read it with a Scottish accent and everything.

Re: Trees by Joyce Kilmer



I like how this is portrayed- the way they are growing together reminds me of this wedding I went to where the minister was speaking of "mutating trees" as a metaphor for the growth of love... =)

Ahhh, thank you! I'm not the only one who cried. REALLY wasn't expecting the ending, and amazing with or without the words!! Can't wait till my son's old enough to appreciate it.

Re: Fire and Ice - Robert Frost



Looks like a scene from Scorcher IV: Global Meltdown. "Who left the fridge open." "Here we go again...again."

BTW love the shirt and love the artwork. Well done.

I love your ideas. And also the use of space! I hope it's not too tiny on the women's tee. ;-)

I agree. I think this is beautiful, but the harshness of the edge bugs me for some reason. this is the first time I'm looking at the derby contests and i'm fascinated. But I really like this.

Re: Air Quoth



Just when I thought The Raven couldn't been done any other way on a t-shirt. Excellent job! I will be voting for it in the hopes that it will be the final nail in Nevermore's coffin.

Yeah, so there's that...

Thanks a lot for all those nice (and some weird) comments. I'm very happy to know you've all liked it this much.

BTW, I love A Game of Thrones too. Who's ready for Sunday's season premier?

Re: The Tyger



Oh man, I saw the title and really hoped it would somehow relate to "The Stars My Destination."

Still cool thought.

Re: A Poison Tree by William Blake



A Poison Tree

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright.
And my foe beheld it shine.
And he knew that it was mine,

And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

~William Blake

Re: I am the Autumnal Sun



My take on Henry David Thoreau's poem



I am the Autumnal Sun
Sometimes a mortal feels in himself Nature
-- not his Father but his Mother stirs
within him, and he becomes immortal with her
immortality. From time to time she claims
kindredship with us, and some globule
from her veins steals up into our own.

I am the autumnal sun,
With autumn gales my race is run;
When will the hazel put forth its flowers,
Or the grape ripen under my bowers?
When will the harvest or the hunter's moon
Turn my midnight into mid-noon?
I am all sere and yellow,
And to my core mellow.
The mast is dropping within my woods,
The winter is lurking within my moods,
And the rustling of the withered leaf
Is the constant music of my grief...
--Henry David Thoreau
