Re: Sundae Best

You are my favorite "New" artist in the derbies. I really love this scratchy style. Kind of like Enin's style which I love as well.

I think this is awesome! And I'm glad you kept it on yellow (don't care much for cream shirts). Reminds me a little of Rene Magritte's paintings.

Trippy. The yellow shirt is way brighter than that, though.

Wow. I really dig this. And unlike most people, I'm a big fan of yellow. Rad.

You submit anywhere else? I'd like to check out more of your work.

Get back in the fog, so I can buy you next week!!!

But seriously, I really liked your entry last week, and this one is even better. I'm glad you'll be participating regularly. It's nice to have some fresh, original artistry around here. Good luck!

Hey, thankyou everyone for the lovely comments! It's great to have such a warm reception- and to have been in the fog a while! If you want to see any more of my stuff, my illustration blog is thisisjonturner.blogspot.com or check out my flickr at www.flickr.com/vonmonkey . Got a couple more tees being printed up soon that you can see on there.

Re: Sundae Best


Yay, VonMonkey!

I love Magritte's work, and also Edward Gorey's (whom I hadn't even thought of in relation to this until it was pointed out... but I can sort of see it), and this is a pretty <i>sweet</i> take on the theme... thing.

Good luck!

If you like this shirt (and I DO!) check out "Une Semaine de Bonté" by Max Ernst, which is what I thought of when I saw this design.
GMV, BTW.

Even though this isn't necessarily something I would wear, I must admit this design is truly something. Terrific talent so keep up the great artwork on Woot. Good luck.

I can't say I care for it on a shirt, but the drawing is fantastic.
Got my vote for skill alone.

Hope this one can stay fogged. I think it's my favorite in the entire derby. Also LOVE TG's Searching for Caramel design.

Congratulations on moving back to the fog!

Re: Sundae Best


Totally got my first vote ever...even though I have been a member for months and months. Because I am laaaaazy.

Thanks for not doing a cutesy design - like other people mentioned, I dig the Magritte influence.
