I,m a big fan of 2pac, and this design are based on the poem of the same name.

The Rose that Grew from Concrete

Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
Tupac Shakur

6 colors on black. Hope you like it

Many people do not know that 2pac was a brilliant poet. Good job bringing this to life.

I really love your design!! I just wish it was a little smaller as it's just too much for me to wear. Then again, if I buy a women's size it would be a little smaller. I'm really torn on this one but you are one heck of an artist!!

This is exactly what I was thinking. It's a bit too large of a design. I still love the image. The rose looks gorgeous.

...I thought it said The Rose That Grew From Concentrate. I was so confused...

"Riddle me this, riddle me that: who's afraid of the big black bat?"

About the placement, I must admit it has become very large design on the tee, the rush to finish it really made ​​me commit yesterday that ruling, please excuse me. In any case, I'm willing to change as many things as are necessary for the design is perfect, and your feedback will not be difficult to fix ;)

I absolutely love this design, would make a great shirt, poster or tote. Would love to see it on the back of a hoodie too.

The only thing I don't like is that it seems to be a bit large, or situated a bit too low.

Eye popping stuff. I love seeing something that's drawn so proficiently. Are those ship masts in the background or just big television aerials?
