Re: The Founders



TOTAL AWESOMENESS!! And very honoring of the founders. Although, Washington would be embarrassed because he was a humble man. Haha. +1!!!!

Should I add a caption to it? Something to the effect of "'Murca don't run on TV"?



IMHO, you should do a second submission with the title added.
A lot of the designs in this and previous derbies make more sense with their titles incorporated into the design.
Of course, sometimes the rules forbid text.
I had no idea how this design tied in with the theme, and adding the title to the design helps.
The creator understands what is going on, but viewers don't always follow.

This is only my fourth submission, so I am still trying to execute a design... after the experienced people have 20 votes.

I concur. I kept wondering if there was some subtext in which that was a gun. Overthinking.

Nicely graphic.
Are the rows of stars deliberately messed up? Am I overthinking this?

I tweaked it a bit since I posted that pic- In fact, my wife constantly will see me "finish" a design and then come back like 3 hours later and say something like "You are still working on that?!?!?! It looks exactly the same!!!!" -

I can be a knitpicker sometimes... heh

Thanks so much!

What if this doesn't print in the derby? Do fans make some arrangement with the artist, like getting an iron-on transfer, or working through Cafe Press or some other T-shirt printing website?

Hey, I know that song! (see .sig)

I'm a little curious as to why a much rarer crew cab Chevy Apache versus the much more common single cab for the era, though. In any case, GMV.

A quickie Internet search suggests today is the birthday of the Marine Corps...or the U.S. Army, depending on the source.



1776 - 2014?
