I like how it almost looks like a chalk drawing.

So god damn literal. This just feels lazy. There's no creativity; there's no interpretation of the theme; there's nothing interesting about it.

Thanks for your comment. I do believe my design is in fact literal you are correct as I wanted to keep it on theme which it is. However I don't understand how it is lazy, this did in fact take me a fair amount of time to create and finish so in terms of effort I don't feel the lazy aspect. And about the creativity, its there. Just because I am not poking fun at something does not mean I am not interpreting. The goal of this design specifically was to show as the title declares a nice scenic drive where its just nature and the highway synchronized in a scenic moment. I understand you may not have viewed it the same way I have but I hope you see my point of view as well.

Lazy as in the idea, not as in time put into execution. I have NO idea how long a shirt takes to design. A scenic image for road trip is a lazy idea and it lacks creativity. I hate the "make fun of something" shirts, but it seems like you (and a lot of other designers) don't understand that completely literal and funny are not the only two options that exist, though. And you're not interpreting if "it is in fact literal."

I really like this design. I also love that it has that chalky artwork look to it. It's a fun medium!

Also, I can see why some people wouldn't but I don't see any reason to be a homeskillet about it either. There are many much less attractive designs.

Homeskillet? How dumb. Fine, I'll be more polite. No reason to be a jerk, especially when you've never even taken the time or put forth a creative idea.

Good luck and I hope it makes it to the top 3!

I'm going to vote/buy this shirt just because of those haters that are gonna hate. Your design is very nice and it is exactly as described, a scenic drive, no one can knock you for that
