Re: A Walk In The Park


This design idea arrived fully formed in my head one day and has been waiting for this derby to arrive. I found the image of someone standing astride a galloping rhinoceros and a hippopotomus quite a compelling way to capture a feeling of euphoria.

Here's a link to a larger version - A Walk in the Park - Detail View

Wow, what a fun concept! Awesome linework and framing - and the orange on gray looks brilliant.

GMV!

Thanks for the kind words Spiritgreen, walmazan, uniique and Andy47240. It's always great to have compliments from fellow artists when trying to gauge whether a design will strike a chord with the Woot audience.
The idea was spontaneous, but putting it together ended up being more involved than anticipated.

I'm not surprised - the detail on this is AMAZING!

Totally totally randomly awesome. Randomness by itself is meaningless, but combine it with a rhino and hippo and it moves into the realm of incredible incredibleness. Next time I find myself standing on the back of any animal as I ride out of the sunset I will salute you.

This is how a real man goes on safari. I would proudly wear this shirt, Sir!

It reminds me of "The Most Interesting Man in the World" commercials. Good work!

All these positive comments are appreciated. I'm glad that both the idea and the design are getting recognised. Take one or the other away and it would be like a hippo running without a rhino.

A pox on all the wooters who don't agree with my brilliantly well informed opinion about your shirt. May they live to rue the day they chose the cute rounded cartoons from the sycophantic designers instead of your stellarly epic masterpiece. May their fortunes decline and their houses fall to ruin after their warranty expires. May their fast food be full of the saliva of the preparers and may their bones full of the aches of their grandparents. AND - May their consciences forever be haunted by the knowledge that I had to pay $22 for this shirt on some other site instead of the $10 on woot.
