Very nicely done, but the graphic is just too big for my shirt tastes.

Hmm well as long as you thought it out;)
Though I do agree with someone above, with 6 arms, he could have carried it! Gmv anyway, very cute.

This is very cute, and I liked the painty style. Another shirt where I wish the graphic was a little smaller though, for me to wear. Like the colors too.

I would've liked just the 2 bass clefs forming the heart as well, but I do agree that this shirt is wearable and interesting. GMV.

I agree that the guitar could've used some colors. I like the design though, it's retro-cool.

Re: Pandora's Laptop



This is a design that I think would make a fantastic work of art, but maybe not so much as a shirt - there's a lot here that's appealing but there's also too much going on for it to really be wearable.

Re: panda plays the zhonghu



The panda is drawn a little awkwardly but is cute nonetheless. I wonder if the design would be more appealing if the background fit into a half-circle rather than a rectangle - you know what I mean?

And to expand a little on what Josephus has said - the shirt shows the notation for the opening of the chorus (when he sings "Never gonna give you up // Never gonna let you dow-ow-own"). Other comments here explain ways in which this is, or isn't awesome, depending on your point of view.

(Although now I'm wondering if someone claiming they don't know what rickrolling is might just be an April Fool's...)

AdderXYU wrote:"art is subjective" is the only argument more abused at this site than "the customer is always right". Both are true to a point. But both are untrue past a point. There are limits to everything.

I will postulate that once art exists ONLY for mass production, it stops being art. Full stop.



I can grant that.

there is a distinct difference between wanting to make money off your art, and wanting to make art for money. And the latter is NEVER art.



Ah, but that I can't grant, as it's a completely different thing. I will grant that art has a motivation besides profit. But the desire to make a profit via art does not invalidate art. If it did, anyone who chose to engage in creative pursuits professionally would be invalidated as an artist. Which, um, no.

Erm, no. Those are concepts with enormously fluid definitions. Much like art. Your crass and blunt definitions of art - coming from someone whose own shirt designs show a staggering lack of skill - amount to little more than "things I dislike are not art."

Which is the lamest definition of art of all.

That is the largest image you can put in the little display box and on the shirt itself. But a lot of artists will provide a link to a larger image posted somewhere else on the net, or post close up photos in the blog of the shirt for people to check out. You can also play with the shirt comp picture and put a larger image not on the shirt in the picture to show off the artwork, and put a small shirt comp in your picture just to show placement on the shirt. Check out some of the other entries, Drakxxx will usually do the close ups as his first post in his blog, bootboots will show you a large image of her art and a small shirt comp, and a lot of the artists will provide a link. Thats what everyone means :-) I think this is really well done, especially for a first entry. Wooters just like to scrutinize artwork and look at all the finer details you put in!

Re: Music is Life



There is no doubt you are a good artist. This is a cute design.

But I have a problem. It does not rub me the right way. Especially the commercialism regarding the iPod... disgusting really. You could've done fine without that invasive product shown.

Re: Music Pirate (resub)



You really need to change away from the "cutesy anime-ish" art style... I'll be the first to admit that I bought 1 or 2 of your prints but my God man... show your talent.

Design something that isn't so... "chibi"... its too "safe." Take a risk.

Since you've proven every time you open your mouth that you have no concept of art, it's not really surprising that you'd be wrong here.

The most important thing here is that you start off wrong in general, arguing that "the desire to make a profit via art does not invalidate art". Which I said. But if that is your only desire when making "art," it does. Which is what I actually said. Everyone wants to profit off what they love. But where art is concerned, if you do not love it, if you don't love the creation and love the inspiration and want that spark so badly that making a profit is a nice perk, then you are not an artist. You are a drawer, or a sculptor, or whatever, but you are not making art. And believing otherwise says nothing flattering about you. Art isn't about skill. It's about the intangibles. Nothing in the fog has that. Pretending otherwise exposes your ignorance.

CSMatt, art isn't anything and anybody who says so doesn't know what art is. While art may be subjective, it is not all encompassing. (For example, this post is not art.) Stepping out of the box (as you put it) is not off theme nor should it be immediate cause for rejection. Rather, the tenuous hold onto the theme is what should be cause for rejection. Subtle references aside, awkwardly slapping music notation into an already worked piece is not on theme.



I don't know how to say this another way but I was taught differently. There were a ton of people who said a lot of what Damien Hirst does isn't art. People do their own thing and anyone can be an artist as long as they are creative. That's why art is so very hard to define.

Let's be fair too. It's not like Ramy slapped a music note on a t-shirt. It took some thought, time, and expression to do this. Who's to say that Ramy couldn't take a picture of a bird paint and decorate it differently and it couldn't match nearly every woot theme? Artists have proven that one thing slightly modified can be something else.

people who have no respect for art have validated people who call slightly modified things original art. It is not. I cannot make a tree a bird just by saying so.

You can argue any way you want, but if this is really the definition that you are going to use to define what makes an artist, then the fact that I was into art for 7 years before ever making a penny from it puts me in that category. If I didn't enjoy entering the derby every week, I'd just leave, profit or not.
