Let's rally together and save those Chileans from the mime.

The shape he's in is pretty bloody. And the use of greys is nice.

i'm trying to figure out what's with the stripes behind his head? what part of his body/torso is that? it seems too disproportioned to be a part of his arm.

His body forms a small cube. Accurate proportion have been sacrificed in attempts to make the cube completely obvious at first glance (works for me, but whether it works for most people is still unknown ). Accurate proportion were also sacrifice to have is head in that location. The angle of his head and his face sell most of the emotion/ fear in this image. May not have been the best choices, but they are they choices I made and I have no regrets

The part that confusing you his his back/right shoulder.

I really like this design. However, I think the graphic needs to be smaller on the shirt. It would make the claustrophobia effect much more pronounced.

but it does give a great Metamfiezomaiophobia (fear of mimes) theme when it's big

Its a neat concept, but I'm having trouble really 'getting' it while its on the shirt. i.e. the concept doesn't really pop out when i look at the design on the shirt template.

I can only hope this is a trash compactor.

I hate you mimes! ::shakes fist:: You're the worst thing about SeaWorld!

(+1 for the art. ^_^)

See now I thought it made sense right away, but then again mime putting oneself into a box then realizing they're stuck and claustrophobic is sort of a long running joke between my theatre friends and I

The guy's face is sa-weet, and so is the use of grays. Not too happy about the size on the shirt, and I question whether trying to make the guy's body cubic was necessary - it does tend to throw this off. Do love the idea, though - classic!
