Even demented little girls can write books! Though I'm pretty sure they only get 'published' on places like fanfiction.net...

Great job! I love how calm and calculating the little girl is in the corner.

I love that it's a little girl writer & a princess doing the rescuing!

Well, that's one way to see it! ;)

Thanks everyone so far! It felt great finishing something. I'm never too good for a helpful critique, though, so lay it on me if you have one or two.

This is fantastic marzipanapple. It's a lesson in good t-shirt design. A seemingly simple image with layers of detail that reveal themselves the more you look. Really like the mix of styles between the girl and the shadows too, and the effective use of the shirt.

Even better than I could have said it...it's a great design.

Thank you so much! Getting *any* comments is awesome, but when I'm graced with reasons I feel extra lucky. It's always nice to know what I might've done right(or wrong).

Thanks guys.

I hate to be a party-pooper, but I think the shadow is wrong on the little girl. ;)


Really though, I like this one. I don't think I could wear it personally, but it's a great concept and execution. Also, is that a texture on the shadows? If so, I think it's a great touch. Good job!

Hahaha! Now that I don't have a squirmy baby in my arms distracting me, this shirt is even more awesome!! She's commanding the monster in the cauldron! It's so unfair that this shirt doesn't have more votes. Boo! I hope it gets picked as an Editor's Favorite. I would buy this in a heartbeat.

Nice! It looks really wearable too.

It must have been hard to figure out what the shadows should do between the girl and where the figures of her imagination begin. Your solution of kinda using the shadows' shadows to connect everything works very neatly. Somehow it makes good visual sense. :^)

This is nearly two derbies in a row where your shirt has been my favorite, the other being Forever Banana. <3

  • 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.
  • From the summer to the spring, from the mountain to the air, from Samaritan to sin, and it's waiting on the air.

Have I told you you should do a children's book before, because you SHOULD do a children's book, and it will be awesome
