I love your deranged view of the world Mr. McHerly. This would be a great companion shirt to Awesomer!

I do not understand the appeal of this shirt...

I had something to say, but I seem to have forgotten it.

Fair enough. Edgar has a particular style that many of us are rather fond of. Check out his website and you may get a better feel for his off-centered humor and art.

Is this the same guy that created salad fingers?

Love the sweat, that was a nice touch.

Great as always, now if only more people would recognize that pure awesomeness of your work we can get this thing printed.

A playful moment for those who like to play with fire. I like the sense of abandonment.

I like the idea and I love your style, but the illustration looks poor, like you didn't really put a lot into this one. Not that I would blame you if that's the case as I would be surprised to see you win another derby.

That's his style. I like this design very much, but... white shirt.

Imposter Pete was Unprepared for the Almost Human Nightmare Cuckoo Clock. The Walrus and Eggmen were the Height of Envy at the Monkey Bar. See the DJ spinning records on a Flora Phonograph while simultaneously playing Rock, Paper, Scissorhold.

I know I should keep my heart out of this, but I have a *burning* passion for Edgar fashion.

Just because the line are rough or wavy does that make it poor? I am just curious...

Too me, its a great illustration. The overall concept, the facial expression, and the body movement are all very readable. The overall composition and a character placement is well thought out too.

I will admit he has done "cleaner" stuff in the past and it does have a "rushed" looked to it (whether it was truly rushed or not), but I wouldn't say the illustration looks poor at all. If it was poor , then we would have no idea as to what's going on in this piece. It's so strange and awkward, that our minds need to piece it together instead of instant recognition. Thats my 2 cents at least...

btw... Great work. I enjoy it!

No.
This is not vintage Edgar. I can't get behind this one. [Like that's worth anything.]

I have a free shirt coupon and I want to spend it ON THIS SHIRT! Edgar: please stop posting shirts here. The let down of them never printing sucks too much.

How so? I think this is indisputably, totally Edgar. Doesn't mean you have to like it, either.

No I understand, It's obviously his style. But if you look at just about every other design he has up on the web you will see a distinct lack of polish on this compared to the rest. As someone else said, he's done cleaner work, in fact most all of his other work I've seen.

You're gonna have to define polish and how the lack of it detracts from this work.

I see shorter line work than some of McHerly's other work, but I don't think it detracts. To me, it reinforces the spontaneity of the depicted scene.

Regardless, I think we all know that this isn't going to print next weekend. I'm just excited by this preview of something that will hopefully print on elsewhere if Mr. McHerly decides not to print and sell it himself.

I really don't need to explain what I meant by "polish" or why I feel this isn't on par with his other designs. I'm not trying to change your mind, I'm merely stating an opinion. If you have a counter opinion (you do) feel free to state it (you did) but I'm really not trying to debate the validity of said opinions.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • You float like a feather in a beautiful world.
