Re: Substitute Teacher
To everyone who so arrogantly, and often ignorantly, criticized the creator of this shirt...look who just won top 3!
It is so ridiculous how many people here think so highly of their "critique of art" when they apparently don't understand true art at all. Since when was art ever in perfect and life-like proportions and perspective? If anything, THAT'S EXACTLY what makes art!
The whole point of art is for the creator, who can be any of us, to express whatever he wants, WITHOUT being limited to reason or logic. And if the viewer doesn't understand it, that's their problem.
Whatever ramyb's intentions were with this shirt, does something have to be all out picasso, with complete distortions, for it to be accepted? Art allows us to do the impossible. Otherwise we'd just take real-life pictures and put them on a shirt.
Hey Ramyb, good job dealing with the criticism, and even taking some into consideration. I wasn't even planning on getting a shirt from this derby, but simply because you stood firm with your design and the freedom in art, I am going to purchase this shirt.
Because now, this shirt represents not only an awesome Star Wars reference, but the ability of an artist to stick by what he felt like designing, because that is the beauty of art, whether for woot shirt derbies or Sistene chapels.
