Re: 1979 - Rock Killed Disco


1979 is the year Disco peaked, and is also the year in which rock fans started a riot in Chicago at an anti-disco event, which is widely credited as the beginning of the end of disco.

The more I look at this the more I like this guitar. If you were to rework this for submission at threadless or somewhere I'd suggest making the guitar smaller, and the disco ball bigger and more shiny. Right now it's a little too big, but has such a great expression I don't care.

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH........ whatever.

I had considered that, but I also sort of wanted it to look huge. I could have added something in the background to help indicate its relative size, but then it might have looked too cluttered. Maybe I should have done something like Cho sometimes uses like a background of a color that is just a few shades darker than the shirt.
