I love love love this design. This has to print! I neeeeeeeeed a classic Drakxx/CD horrorish shirt for my collection. I didn't get a Halloween one this year, so I command all wooters to vote for this. Follow my lead, I clearly am awesome!

Okay maybe a bit too enthusiastic but hey, it's a cool shirt.

Draxxx and Crescent Debris, I love seeing your collabs. Draxxx brings that dark mystery to the designs, and Debris has a beed on what colors will make the nightmare come to life.

The balloon is actually what does it for me with this one. I love it. Draws your eyes right to it first and you think "Hey, what a lovely balloon", which promptly turns into "W T H".

When ever I think of the word "amusement park" the cover or the Goosebumps book "One Day at Horrorland" cover art, which I read as a kid always comes to mind. I was hoping someone would sort of play off that theme in this derby. So far, this is the only shirt I would buy. You got my vote.

This is stunning work- it has exactly the right colors to create the perfect tone/atmosphere to all the creepy-neat visuals. GMV, I wish I could vote for this twice.

Re: Lost in Nightmares

I have to say that I'm disappointed in this entry. I've been hoping to see more in this style, but not a replica.

I already own "Nightmare Circus", which seemed to have much more effort put into it. (No offense! I love Drakxxx and CrescentDebris, but this just doesn't look as finished as the other.)

I like how the entrance is highlighted with yellow. It really draws the eye there and the kids running in is the best part (I think, anyway).

I don't really understand how the gray color is suppose to function in this image. The values seems mixed up...

Beat me to it. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw this design, as well.

...This is awesome. I just got a shirt from Woot! in the mail, and I hate to buy a bazillion shirts in like, a week, but... I may have to buy this. Amazing colors, amazing design, amazing detail, great concept. Yeah. This is fantastic.

Drakxxx thought it was unfair that everyone spells my name right but calls him "Draxxx" or "drakxx" or "drax" or "draxxs"... so he sabotaged the comp for his own personal gain. Or it's a typo.

Maybe a Drakxxx favorite. I don't know. I missed that one as a kid I guess. It's tough to come up with something that doesn't look at least a bit like something else these day, but I will agree it does have some commonalities. Too bad he doesn't have a balloon or a hand full of people... then he's be cooler.

Something bout the dude's expression and his epic hat makes my cursor move towards the I'd Want One button. Looks like this one wasn't as under-appreciated as your stuff usually is. Finally!

Something Wicked This Way Comes (book and film)is a definite inspiration for all these horror / carnival illustrations I've done.

Though I didn't think of the ultra violent thug get-up from A Clockwork Orange for this piece, I am a big fan of all things Clockwork and certainly A Clockwork Orange.

Big thanks to Mister Debris again this week for hitting this with an amazing color palette that really drove home the subdued waking nightmare atmosphere I had in mind when i did the illustration.

Thanks for the support this week everyone. You guys are the best.

I wish your shirts were more to my style where I would actually buy them, that aside, you two always produce top notch work.

This is the only shirt I would buy out of the fog, I really hope it gets printed!

ETA: I meant the Lost in Nightmares one, looks like the quote didn't make it through.

Re: Lost in Nightmares


I know I've gotten on you guys before about over-designing beautiful poster-worthy shirts that I would never wear. But I have to say that this one is spot on. Enough of your impeccable attention to detail to still be you, but minimal enough to look good on a shirt. Beautiful.

Hope this prints. If it does, I will buy and wear proudly.
Suggestion - the yellow/white flash coloring appears to be in front of the maw/doorway, not coming from it. I note this late so as to hopefully not detract from votes. But it's a concern you all need to work on.
