Re: The Art of War


Based off of Sun Tzu's book which will hopefully one day be turned into a musical.

Thanks to everyone who gave input in the pre-derby thread!

Re: The Art of War


I thought you were going "short form"
(though I do like this one also)

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

Thanks orabbit and lotsofgoats (gooooats)!

@J5 - I think the circle frames it nicely like Fablefire suggested. I didn't like the double shadows, but one puddle seemed to do the trick.

I'm assuming that's what you mean by "short hand". I had to look it up and it involved shortening words. I'm not changing the title to TAW that is just silly.... AW is also out.

Though I didn't see it in time lotsofgoats (gooooats) suggested "The War of Art" which I think is a great title. None of this AW nonsense.

I said "short form" which meant the shortened stroke.
Good comp though!

Very dynamic! You did a great job of capturing that sense of motion.

It's all good. I'd buy this if you drew it on a napkin and called it Sally, so don't worry too much.

I really want this to win. I haven't bought any shirts in a long time, but I would buy this in a second.

Is it just me or does the blue samurai look like hes doing gangnam style Art of War?

I love it either way. I usually hate light colored shirts but I will buy this if it prints.

I was aiming for more of a Chinese warring states period look than samurai, but I'll take it !

Gangam Samurai covers more bases anyway.
