Re: LEEEE-ROY LICHTENSTEIN!!!

This one is a collaboration with a friend, Oubliette, and we did it in the style, “Pop Art” of the 70's and 80's with contemporaries like Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, who took everyday scenes and objects and displaying or recreating them in a new light.

Roy Lichtenstein took inspiration from pulp, 4 color comics of the time. Combine that with one of the move famous moments in all of internet history, Leroy Jenkins and you've got this killer shirt! Alright Chums, let's DO this! Thanks for your vote!



Check out more on the Lichtenstein here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Lichtenstein

I'll get to it.

I like the art, but is this on a shirt template?

I love it, but you guys have to soften the edges. You don't want it to look like an iron on design. A little tweaking and this would be perfect.

yes it's on a shirt template. Note the upper right hand of the composite. Though it's a bit clearer on the white shirt. Check the white version out, i like that one better out of the two. (alternate submission)

and, i have to say this ...pop art doesn't have soft edges. The frames are there to represent the style. I guess that bears explaining to those not familiar with the era and Roy Lichtenstein (Or Jack Kirby for that matter).

Oh, now I see the shirt outline... it was invisible because of how my laptop screen was tilted.

I blame Svelbjorn. We could have made the outline white. I tend to do that with my dark shirt submissions.
