Re: The Sea, She Calls Me.


First off, the 580 preview jpeg save doesn't do the design justice. Here is the bigger version: Big Picture

Now to what this is about. The man is standing on the rock looking out to sea. He is captured by its beauty. One would imagine he would leave it all behind to be at sea. However, what he doesn't realize is that the sea is a trap...Do you see why?

Here is the original sketch if you give up guessing: The Secret

By the way I really do hate having to draw another black shirt. I'm going to rack my brain for more ideas because I think this design is too complicated. But I'm a sucker for subtlety.

Hello again, old chum. Just thought I'd stop in to offer some "constructive criticism" on your current design.

First of all, I'd like to start off by saying that this design may be the greatest design of all time. From the moment I laid eyes on it, I felt all my senses stimulated, from my immersion in its deep, beautiful colors and illustrations to the way it's well-crafted protagonist's yearning pulled on my own heart strings. However, little did I know what I was in for!! At first, I thought this epic masterpiece was merely a magnificently rendered metaphor for the human spirit inside us all, HOWEVER, to my UTTER ASTONISHMENT you revealed that there are intellectual depths that some, such as myself, are just not ready to comprehend without help: there is a secret to this drawing, a secret of an utterly sinister nature that seems to speak to that fragmentation of the devil that lives even in the hearts of every angel. When this secret, literally imperceptible to all but the most cultured and ingenious eye, was revealed to me in a simplified-but-equally-glorious image generously provided by you, the artist, my world changed and I would never be the same. I don't think it'd be unreasonable to buy 1000 of this work of art. After all, would you not buy 1000 Sistine Chapels? Would you not buy 1000 works of Shakespeare? I prostrate myself on my knees before your genius and I beg you in no uncertain terms to never stop portraying--and in doing so transforming--the human spirit in all of us on 10 dollar T-shirts. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

If you remember back on the dino's thread, I stated that I valued simplicity. So instead of wasting your time and making me believe that you are doing this out of sarcasm, cut out half of your adjectives and adverbs and cut to the chase.

I will compliment you on your wordage (yeah, I made that up). You can write me a book any day.

Now cut the koi, move on with life. Thanks.

I sincerely apologize for the confusion. Allow me to simplify.
