Re: Float On


Were You Aware?

That this design was inspired by the works of Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami?



Were You Aware?

That 36% (4 out of 11) of my derby entries to date involved characters wearing bowties?



Thank you Woot and voters for giving this a second chance!

The more I see this one, the more I like it. I really hope I get a chance to wear it.

Re: Float On


Thanks for adding a few interesting facts in there. I was not aware. I was however aware that this design rocks just as much as the song of the same name does. My cursor just can't help floating on over to the vote button.

Pfft! "Get"? "Get"?! Back in my day we didn't have any of these fancy pants anthropomorphized food or animals wearing shutter shades, none of our shirts had punchlines and that's the way we liked it! In fact, you were lucky if your shirt wasn't covered in fleas or made out of vinyl! I remember I had a vinyl shirt once, it would play Miles Davis whenever you scratched your back. Now there was a true gentlemen! Kids these days, don't have any role models, they wouldn't know a Hanah Hoch from a Chinatsu Ban. Bloody intentionalists, the lot of yas! My father raised me to be a post-modernist, just like his father before him, and his father before him, and his... well, actually, great-great-grandpa Joe was a formalist. But I don't think the two are very mutually exclusive at all, no matter what that Mr. Duchamp has to say about it!

(Note: Just playin'. I'm bored today.)

Really liked this one the last time, good to see it have another chance.

Vote!

Thanks so much. Here I was hoping somebody might explain it for me, but... I guess not.

Happy to have given you something about which to complain, however.

Haha!

I guess there's a subtext about family, social networking, 6 degrees of separation, etc etc, but that's only if you really want to go 'art critic' on it. I don't really intend for anyone to read into the subtext, much less "require" it for understanding the shirt.

Basically it's just meant to be a stylish, whimsical, fun-looking shirt design.

Jasneko: No I do not, I just enjoy drawing bowties. I keep a list of every bowtie I draw, actually. I don't intend to draw that many, it just... happens.

Oh. Well, that's disappointing.

My favorite is the one with the mustache.

Re: Float On

As much as I hope this shirt makes a rally to the top, in case that doesn't happen, is there any chance we'll see this on another site? And if that does happen, is there a chance I may receive a pm so I may buy it?

Pretty please?

Yeah, it'd be nice to have this have a sudden surge in votes, but I guess you could say this design was... Dead Before the Ship Even Sank? Is the lack of votes Good News for People Who Like Bad News? Hmm? Okay fine, I apologize for the awful Modest Mouse puns.

I'll definitely be shopping this around once all is said and done, it's certainly one of my most well received designs. I'll keep you in the loop. In the meantime keep your fingers crossed for an Editor's Choice print, I know I will be.
