Re: Quixotic - Boxes for Climbing? That's Lofty!


Here's my first entry for the word Quixotic using definition #1:
1: foolishly impractical especially in the pursuit of ideals; especially : marked by rash lofty romantic ideas or extravagantly chivalrous action

Lofty romantic idea of a young man trying to climb the side of a tall tower to see his love. Only problem, he's using cardboard boxes on which to climb. Lofty goals, but likely an unachievable outcome. My design for quixotic.

Thank you for your vote!

I'll definitely take that as a compliment. Thanks! I thought the freehand 'sketchy' style was appropriate for this design. I thought it gave a light feel to the image and worked with the romantic notion that I was trying to get across. Hope you like it!

Please friends. I need a couple of votes on this one to separate me from the seal clubbing entry. I just can't look at the listings and see mine next to that one. Thanks for your help.

Thanks! It was a fun design to create. I loved doing it without a sketch. I just drew it directly on the tablet and went from there. I thought the style would work well with the free spirited little guy with lofty goals and a lovestruck heart! Thanks for your vote! I would LOVE to wear this tshirt, but it doesn't look like it's going to make it this time. But, I still appreciate your vote!
