Well put together. I love the simplicity of the style choice. Reminds me of a 1950's commercial for fire safety.

I am really enjoying all the "side" characters. They are making me fall in love with this design!

Re: Firestarter


Thanks very much! Ironically I'm not feeling too hot today and I wasn't sure I would make it on time, but somehow it came together. ^_^


@graff, not last week but I have had a charmed life over the last few contests. I've been very lucky with how recent entries have gone. I can't believe I have two shirts on Woot at the moment, let alone them be where they are on the chart. Craziness I tell you!

@lkackman, awesome. That's the kinda style I was aiming for. Simple but exuberant.

@chumpmagic, walmazan, uniique - thank you guys! Very nice of you. :^)

Great contrast between the pyromaniac and and the fearful onlookers Spiritgreen. Clean illustration and dynamic arrangement.

Cute design. I love the horrified expressions of the little guys surrounding the match.

that is one happy lit match!!
very cute design!
one thought though not sure about the inclusion of a cigarette and pipe... kind of stops parents buyin' for their kids, you know what i'm sayin'? You might want to remove them.

What no hair spray? >; )

Excellent job as always! I wish you had submitted both this and your don't play with matches design.

The facial expressions and styling have a great 50s film reel styling.

Oh and congrats on getting Tron Ancestry mentioned on boingboing.net today.

Re: Firestarter


Thank you for the generous feedback. I have to admit I'm not sure who the target audience is for this manic design, but I had fun making it. ^_^


@Lagbert, oh boingboing.net! I knew LaughingSquid had mentionned that shirt but didn't see it had gone there too until you mentionned it.
