a very Jimmy Buffett-y feel to it!

reminiscent of "pink crustacean in a white sports coat" ,and that's a good thing!

Takes a while to sink in with the color scheme, but love that the parrot's wearing a tux tee!

I don't really get the title? I think the clean line work and overall size of the image rocks. It just makes a bigger impact then if it were small. So bravo...

I second this, but I still think the bear in the station wagon is my favorite piece.

It's sorta like the parrot, a renowned partier, shows up to the exclusive penguin black-tie affair in a tux tshirt expecting to party and gets shot down by the mean ol penguin.

Edit: also the penguin is not pleased that the parrot showed up, hence the "stupid parrot"

Re: Stupid Parrot, This is a Black-Tie Affair


I freakin' love this. The colors are beautiful and it's a great style. I keep getting drawn to the absence of ink on the penguins belly. I love the thin line that runs down the middle.

I really enjoy this shirt design.

Just wondering, but is the parrot head a vector of this image?

Sorry for the triple post, been a while since i used bbc

Certainly was my reference but it wasn't a vector, I can upload my sketch if you'd like.... I also highly doubt they match

Edit: as well as other sources.... there just aren't a whole lot of things parrots do with their heads.

No its fine, I was just wondering. Kudos to you for making it so realistic! My untrained eye can't pick up any differences from the original geometry wise. GMV

DUDE how do you come up with this stuff???? You are soooooo smart and artistic. Do you by chance ever incorporate duct tape into some of your art work? You are totes the best.

GMV. So many great things about this one. The colors, the size of the penguin, the subtle expression of annoyance on said giant penguin's face--you rock, man!

I was skeptical, what with the cancellation theme, that we'd get anything worthwhile, but there are some amazing pieces here. Granted, none of them will end up printing . . . fix your derby, woot :P

Really like your pallete on this one. It wouldn't have worked near as well if you had actually used black for the penguin and tux shirt. Great job.

since it is highly unlikely it will actually print on Woot when it does print somewhere else I would like to know where that is.
