Re: Unidentified Grilling Object



Really great man- I used to have a little grill in college that looked just like the deathstar- Now all grills are spaceships to me too!

If I owned this shirt, I would wear it on days I was feeling sad, so that I could look down and SMILE ETERNALLY! Silly fun stuff here!

I don't normally love sequel shirts unless they surpass/add too the original... this one is gold and those dogs really sell it-

Again, this uploaded looking squashed. What can I do about that in the future?



I sent you an explanation in your private messages. Hope it helps.

Re: Porksche


Gradiants in the lower right corner and in the right of the banner area are a good touch, a more 3-D look.
Oh, and a clever idea for a theme that many of us had trouble with.

I see I have a lot to learn here, helped by several members. 602x602, use of shirt color in illustration, in addition to using Pantone colors and halftones.... Thanks, everyone!

Thanks! I'm always a little concerned about subbing gradients without halftones, but I think since I did this entirely in Illustrator I'm still within the rules. In any case, thanks again!

Agree with oakenspirit. The drawing is very cool. A thought occurred to me when I was admiring all the details. I was wondering if it might have greater impact as a shirt design if you simplified the number of different parts to the picture. If, for example, the character was sitting on the giant dead wolf instead of the log you would have one central focus.

Re: Heavenly Bacon


Clever typographic treatment. I think it reminds me of some brand of smoked meat.
Is this a reference to the 1946 movie, "It's a Wonderful Life"? Someone says, "Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings."

Re: Ways to eat your Steak



Clever use of puns and details for the steak-speakers.
This shows that we can create good design without always using pop culture references.
I would capitalize "burnt" like the other categories. "to hard" should be "too hard."
If I seem petty or critical, it's because I just finished a semester of critiques and deadlines and I can't turn it off.

Re: Zelda's Grill (grass green)



Does this refer to "The Legend of Zelda"? I know about that Zelda only from a quick glance in Wikipedia.

Re: Ways to eat your Steak


When I enlarge this on my screen, I can see the rectangular box and the vertical guideline from the T-shirt template. Does anyone know how to avoid that? Some of us are newbies.

Thanks. I was going for old timy hand lettered sign. So i actually hand drew the type but got tired and used a real font for the smaller type. And yes its a reference to that line.
