The full quote...

Hamlet:
"O God, I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself a
king of infinite space—were it not that I have bad dreams."

Re: The Poet's Weapons



Through time, the poet's weapon of choice has changed but the power of their words has not. I hope you enjoy this design as much as I do -- I'd really like to wear this!

I just posted this in the other thread ThatRobert - really great! Very sharp, clean and graphical look and the colors work well together.

Re: The Tragic Story of Romeouse and Julirat



The Tragic Story of Romeouse & Julirat

A few years ago we lived in a little country house in a small town in Mexico. We had a serious rodent problem, with mice everywhere; on the walls, in the bed in the kitchen...they were everywhere! We ended up having to take extreme measures and we decided to put a glue trap just inside the front door.

When we got home that day, there were three little mice stuck in the same trap, right next to each other. Obviously their end was a little less tragic than the one in this t-shirt...but that's how I came up with this idea. I hope you like it!

Here is featured some of Mr Shakespeare's Settings and characters.from l to r we have Othello, William Shakespeare (seated atop centaur) Centaur as alluded to by King Lear in act 4 scene 6 -without the female attributes (as per Nathan)then lastly, Shylock. the place is probably Cypress the castle could belong to any of the historical Kings . . .

I like this Robert, I just think I'd like it more without the squares, but great job. BTW nice "To be" ref thrown in there with the pencil.

THIS IS GREAT! Nice use of your style! I could actually see people understanding what this represents... rather than asking why you have two dead mice on your shirt.

Great work as always! GMV.

Re: Sonnet 73



Sonnet 73:

That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou see'st the twilight of such day
As after sunset fadeth in the west;
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death's second self, that seals up all in rest.
In me thou see'st the glowing of such fire,
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the death-bed, whereon it must expire,
Consum'd with that which it was nourish'd by.
This thou perceiv'st, which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well, which thou must leave ere long.


Checklist:
yellow leaves
boughs
bare ruined choirs (represented by the gothic windows)
sweet birds (cunningly hidden in the tracery, as a reminder that they've gone)
sunset fadeth in the west
ashes of his youth (greyness)

Re: Ophelia's Nut House



To protect her from his Uncle, Hamlet tries to drive Ophelia away by implying that she's... less than pure. When Ophelia doth protest, he tells her "Get thee to a nunnery." Which is either saying she's so sinless that she should be a nun, or doubting her, since "nunnery" is slang for a brothel.

Her boyfriend being so cruel drives her nuts, and either makes her drown herself, or makes her open a nut shop. You be the judge.

I haven't bought a shirt in awhile, but if this prints I may have to pick one up. I'm finishing up my playwriting MFA and need a writer-nerd shirt.

Re: Yorick who?



The old English here strikes me as wrong. I think even in the bard's day, "Thee" would be "Me" in this sentence (assuming that's what you meant to say). "Thee" refers to the person you're speaking to, so this shirt reads "Do you know yourself?", which I'm guessing isn't what you meant....

Apologies if I'm wrong.

I agree, great style. I also love how the design is squared; it works really well with this piece.

Re: Sonnet 73



This is really neat, but they might consider it off topic; you can't really tell it's about Shakespeare from looking at the shirt. If I were you, I would resubmit right away, and not risk getting rejected and then running out of time.

I thought that subtle "2B" would get unnoticed a bit longer. Good eye! I'd love any advice you'd have about integrating the images together without the squares -- I tried lining them up, pointing them at each other, crossing each other, and nothing pulled together quite as nicely as the checkerboard did.

This shirt was made for you. I hope you get a chance to wear it!

Thanks Andy! You've had some very nice successes along with me. I'm really enjoying experimenting lately -- wish I had a chance to do it more than just once/week!

There is a typo on your pill bottle. It's "midsummer night's dreams," not "midsummer's night dreams."
