I do not deny that she uses some of the same elements in her designs (though she is not alone in that regard). But that is not what I was discussing here with colinm09. I was simply telling him that there is not much point in trying to force his opinions on other voters who find the design appealing.
People who don't know what they're talking about should not be allowed to make their voice heard. and anyone who is not sick of this sort of junk winning religiously while diverse, creative, attractive work flounders doesn't know jack. To a man, everyone who voted for this shirt is wrong. This isn't interesting. Why is it interesting? Because it's a dreamcatcher? It isn't attractive. Why is it, because it glows? This isn't original. Try to explain how it is. People can't do it. Ever. It's a hivemind of ignorance and cannot ever be justified by anything but "Ohmigod, it's just my OPINION!" Yeah, and if your opinion has no basis in logic or fact, your opinion is worthless. there is no logic to needing another shirt like this, and no facts to make this somehow a worthwhile addition to anyone's wardrobe. You can get this schlock elsewhere, and indeed had months to buy a near identical piece from this very "artist" and site. What can anyone offer as to why this IS even remotely worthwhile, other than "wah, I like it"?
What's next, a horribly halftoned design supposedly encapsulating water on the moon that will print like utter scaffolding? We need to up the quality around here before that happens.
