This was the original forecast apocalyptic:



I don't really care about the similar idea issue, though I think Forecast Apocalyptic is a good example of a nice layout for a weather forecast. I realize you're probably limited in Gimp, but I would appreciate more commercial-looking linework (like you'd see in an actual forecast) instead of the jaggies.

The red text isn't working for me either. It's clashing a bit with the baby blue.

Also - Fable is my hero.

Have you ever read the webcomic "Minus"? It's different than others in that it's painted on a giant canvas with water colours. The story revolves around a little girl with inexplicable and limitless magical powers and what she does with them. The story ended a few weeks ago. One of the comics involved a deadly meteor as well, and the last panel showed her waiting with a baseball bat.



I haven't read Minus, but I'm definitely reading it now. Takes a little while to load. Very cool comic though. I like the whimsical watercolor look with the semi-twisted humor. =D

It's fun to read the author's comments too. Web comics are a lot of work. Always wanted to do one but I have a horrible attention span when it comes to plots. >.<

The baseball bat thing also reminds me of the last episode of Fooly Cooly, except instead of a bat, the main character had an electric guitar.

Thanks for the support everyone!

Thanks so much for the comments, everyone. It really makes me happy to hear that guys actually like the illustration and my completely random humor (and it really is strange this time around, I acknowledge that). Thanks for the votes, as well!

Re: If he catches you, you're thru!



Got the Snoopy vs the Red Baron song stuck in my head today after hearing it as someone's ring tone... not sure if working it into a shirt design is gonna help.
Wanted to call it Red Baron, but the pizza place is trademarked and all that good stuff, so typed the first thing that came to mind instead, just in case.
Didn't realize until too late that it was from the Road runner theme song... the cyotes after you! oh well, symptom of sleep deprivation. I will go work on that right now.
Thanx for looking! Would appreciate the vote, too!

I think the retro weather icons work with the Godzilla forecast... they would have looked just like this in "an actual forecast" back in the day. Except maybe with less color.

Nice design, but I think it's pretty annoying that these generic bird shirts end up displacing much more original designs. They should just have a bird shirt derby and then after that auto reject bird silhouettes.

Yeah, there was a really similar concept just about a week ago. Even the title was "Coffee Level Critical" and it had the little bars in the cup. It's not the same design, but it is terribly similar.

Poor little turtle.



Don't worry. He's a cartoon turtle, which means he has lightning fast reflexes and an indestructible shell. He'll probably be blown to Bermuda, but he'll land there relatively unscathed.

Your art is better, but the idea is the same. I already have his version on a shirt.



I've never heard of that site before. It looks like the turtle knows what is going to happen him on that one, whereas on this one he doesn't really know yet...

Kinda the same, but kinda not...

In my megalomaniac world this would be printed by now. Alas I am a humble teacher and artist and can only ask you to consider getting this printed elsewhere if it doesn't make it. And, oh yes, definetly the orange.



Awesome, I've cornered the megalomaniac demographic. Thank you muchly.

I would definitely consider printing it elsewhere if it doesn't make the honorable mentions.

Re: Sudden Death



Fable does it again! I lurve it ferociously.

and yes, webcomics are tough business. Some times the only reward you have for doing them is some random 4chan flunky writing "I am an un-original person" in the comments. You gotta want to do it for yourself or you'll go crazy.

jones21403 wrote:Wow. I agree. I wasn't a big fan of this design, but I was surprised to see the reason for it being rejected. Even with the explanation I think the emergency was kind of vague, and it could have been rejected for beign off topic. But, now that it is stated that it's not incidental text there are a lot of other designs that would need to be rejected in order to be fair.



if the design could have more than "incidental text," i'd say the shirt needed the phrase "get back in the kitchen." 'twould add to the satire.

'specially if she were barefoot & pregnant carrying an ice tea to her man.

(for the record, my wife is a business woman... so this is definitely satire... as almost everything I say is SMART-A55).

And how timely - In 2007, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock two minutes closer to midnight to make it 5 minutes to midnight. In 1995 it was 14 minutes to midnight!



Quite frankly, I'm surprised it's currently only five minutes to midnight.

Great concept and execution. GMV.
