Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.

I hate to say this, 'cause I like the idea, but it looks like this was typed and then simply traced/textured with the cord. Kinda just looks like a font.

Er, thanks for the compliment I guess :/

I hand drew the entire thing, scanned it, and traced it in illustrator. I suspect that an actual font would have been more consistent in how the loops of the g and y appear ;)

I'm a big fan of hand drawn type and have done a lot in that vein in the past (for example, my Thor is my Co-Pilot shirt was recently printed at Teefury, and is also all hand drawn). Maybe I've done enough of it at this point so that it looks almost like the real thing, llo!

No worries, I agree that a lot of excellent work ends up getting overlooked in the derby. One of my favorites this week is Ghoulish Greetings (which somehow only has 13 votes as of now), and I hope some of the currently under-valued good stuff gets a vote infusion before the week is over.

Something so iconic about the NES controller.

Maybe the Dualshock or the 2600 comes close but nothing beats it.

Re: Legacy


rule #1 of derby success: slap a nintendo controller on there somewhere and you are guaranteed 70+ votes.

having said that, the design is actually fairly boring.

Awesome! I remember the days of playing many hours on my NES. I really hope this gets printed. Even if it doesn't get printed here, send me a PM if ever gets printed. GMV!

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

hey, someone else actually gets it. yup, basically people are voting for the nintendo controller, not any actual art. i do hope this gets rejected for copyright, or just for lack of creativity. it's easy to take a popular idea and steal it; not as easy to make your own.

don't worry, i'm about to say the same thing on the zelda shirt.

your right, the art is obviously not that complex or jaw dropping. BUT, there is more to a shirt than just pretty artwork. this shirt, simple as it is, is a great idea and really "hits home" with anybody that grew up in the NES generation. the system is a legacy, and this shirt is a cool way of portraying that Idea!

GMV!!! growing up with the NES, I LOVE IT!
