I'm not big on the raft being in black and white, but great job and nice colors.

Love your reflected colors from Oz onto the ground and the river. Something about this combo feels like a wonderful, childlike daydream.

I love the river, but I kinda wish you had put some color into the raft and passengers. Could you please elucidate on your coloring decision?

I think more sepia with the lineart might have really made this rock.

Awesome design! Definitely love the simplicity, yet I can tell the fine details.

Definite buy.

And to me, it seems like the perfect choice. Dorothy back home in Kansas was black and white, and so it makes perfect sense that Huck and Tom sailing into Oz would be the same.

Great, absolutely wonderful shirt. GMV

Hmmm... interesting. Okay, I can see how that would be then.

I think I may have seen Wizard of Oz once. More importantly to my confusion, when I READ Huck Finn or Tom Sawyer, my imagination had it all in full color. In fact, the colors were far more vivid then my memory of Oz in the movie. (Have not yet read the original Wonderful Wizard of Oz - it's still on my list.) Thus, while I appreciate the colors of Oz (and LOVE the river), it sorta seems backward to my experiences with the stories. Does that make sense?

The black and white Tom and Huck are striking against the blue and green on the rest of the shirt! This is fantastic.

The guys at the new SONIC drive-in told me to have a supersonic day. And I did!

The raft being black and white kinda kills it for me but I love the concept Also I thought your mortons salt girl/snail was great.

This actually reminds me of a lot of the other OZ novels about the rest of the land you don't see in the movies. Cool!

I keep looking at this one and thinking it feels very dreamlike in the way you executed it. Best of luck to you!
