I really like it but am not a fan of white t-shirts at all. I think making the shirt black and changing the text to white would give it my vote.

Really?
This is for $1000.00

My kid can draw better than this. write better, too. I don't get it?

I thought this was like an "Art Contest" but it's like Highschool.

Power to ya, if this is what the buying public wants. I don't wanna pissonyur daisies. Not at all. I'm just over here cuz a buddy told me there was top knotch stuff.

Good luck with this, it seems to be catchy and that's the name of the game.

Pretty damn funny. I would actually like it more without the "Electrical Outlets" text up top.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but this is no more an "art contest" than a beauty pageant is a display of personality and intelligence.

The purpose of these contests (as least as far as I perceive them) is to create shirts that will sell. As many people have proven (cough*ramy*cough), it doesn't have to be a masterful work of art to sell like crazy.

That's exactly right, I guess. I had a chat with some others and they explained how it works. You have to solicit your votes.

Good luck in the derby.

PS- I read my post and I sounded like an ass-istant donkey-head. I was just newly confused. It was directed more to the community, it just happened to be on your entry, that's not really fair to you. Sorry.

You totally nailed the buying public, I want to offer my sincerest apology for my hasty critism, earlier. You are a genius and I bow to your frenetic design prowess. Kudos, mon advisaire.

You are selling like ..."Hotcakes!"

Is Kandinsky an artist? He just throws speckles of paint around? Any 5 year old can do that. Jim Davis? Pictures of a fat cat eating lasagna with the same recycled 20 year old jokes? Trump films Celebrity Apprentice in his spare time when he isn't looking for birth certificates... and people watch it?!??! Is Yngvie just copying Paganini? Does Bieber need another haircut? Is Drakxxx just Cthulhu's fourth tentacle from the left*?

Art isn't who can generate the most awesome high resolution super hot 3d ubergraphic. There has to be a connection to the viewer, which comes from something other than graphic quality.

So what if the artist can't draw (or if it was a stylistic choice, that's even more impressive, since it demonstrates restraint). He got his point across without adding a bunch of useless detail. I mean, they're electrical sockets. How much detail do you need there, and how much detail would just distract from the faces he was pointing out?

Slight puerile? Maybe, but that's the world we live in; and I don't mean shirt.woot. Considering the theme, he executed sufficiently.

Didn't vote for it, wouldn't wear it, won't buy it, but can conclusively say that this entry solidly fits within the category of art.



(*I'm not even sure what the Drakxxx question means, it just seemed to fit the rest of the paragraph.)

Hahaha this is super cute. Ive always thought electrical outlets look like unhappy little faces. I like the sort of hand drawn style. I personally think it adds to the charm. ^_^

You should have entered this earlier, if this were submitted on Friday it would've had great chance of winning

Save it for the "Do-Over" Derby where you can resubmit old ones. Bet you you'll win that one.
