Zounds! It's a Shakespeare Brawl! Two of The Immortal Bard's greatest literary characters, Iago, his most despicable antagonist, and Hamlet, his greatest protagonist, pitted against each other in a Royal Rumble!

6 colors on black. Thanks for looking in.

Iago is my favorite Shakespearean character - I named my second car after him. ;)

I love this. I really want this to print!

I mixed up my comments on shirts! Since I write them in word to catch any spelling errors I cut and pasted the wrong one! LOL

So here is yours:

I like that you recreated a fight poster and hand drew the figures. I think it just bugs me that it seems like no one cares about the no text only rule". I think they should clarify how much over the shirt should be design and how much can be text.
(Or maybe there is clarification and I have missed it?)

Why Iago? Othello doesn't take place in Denmark. If it were Hamlet v. Laertes, I'd buy it in a snap.

Also, the globe wouldn't have a show at 8pm. It would be dark outside, they can't do a show in the globe in the dark. If it was at the Blackfriars, I'd buy it in a snap.

While all we have is rejections to go by, shirts have gone unrejected where they're 2 lines of text, and a single image that isn't a Wingding Font item.

A general rule for "no text only" is "something on the shirt that cannot be created using just the keys on your keyboard."

Generally it is held that Hamlet is Shakespeare's most intelligent protagonist and that Iago is his most intelligent antagonist. Therefore this battle would be epic.
