Nice design. An amazing myriad of ocean friends come to a really bored kid's aid when his mom throws away is PSP. I love it!

Re: I Can Hear the Ocean!!


I am just really digging this shirt. Thats saying something for me because cute can kinda turn me off. But you have balanced cute so well as a vivid depiction of childhood imagination that I am sold on concept. We all know that the sound of the ocean in the shell is just garbled noise collecting in curved shape....its the naive and creative mind that has not forgotten what a wonder the world under the sea can be that really gives this shirt its life. Its not formula cuteness when it hits a harmony between feeling joy, seeing colors, hearing a cacophony, tasting salt, and touching life. The only thing missing is smell and I imagine that to happen when washed up sea life is gathered in his sand bucket.

Thanks for taking me on a trip back to my younger days on the beach

Very cute! Love the little critters. The only comments - I'm not a fan of the huge cheesy smile of the whale (which is what would prevent me from wearing this shrit), and then the whale and dolphin's size. My eye gets drawn first to the whale smile (which seems more campy then the rest of the creatures) then the dolphin, which seems too big. It would look more like a large group if they were a little smaller.

Other than that, very nice idea and cute!
