thanks so much! Now I can advertise!
um, good point about the meta-theming. You know, now that I contemplate, I do have a tendency to slip into meta-everything. I'll have to watch myself.
I do appreciate your input, and look forward to more. Any helpful, tidbits on my other two entries? I guess "Fail" qualifies as another "meta-theme" entry. "Nom" was made of cookies, comprised of tiny hand-drawn (not from clip art) chocolate chips! I even resisted the urge to draw ten different chips and then composite them.
I saw your hammock -- I was forced to gamble on Google and learned more than I expected too. Not the t-shirt for me, but often off-color, inside jokes can be very desirable. I suspect you could get a friend to spit his drink if you showed up at a strip club wearing that shirt!
Oh, and nice bananas -- your details were really nice. I know you were half joking, but you executed it well. Nice spacing, good color, spots on the bananas that add the shirt color in to your illustration. I'm sure you're comfortable with your work, and do not really need me to tell you anything, but there's my two cents.
an attempt at quid pro quo. Maybe sometime I can get you to look at my revised Pirate Games for feedback. I would really value your critique, and I think it would help me improve further. Although, ironically, my first entry Feline Orobuoros in the cat!cat!cats! derby is still my most votes (55) to date.
However, I was closer on that one to fulfilling the rules set forth in the j5 (by accident, of course):
[quote="j5"]to the crit, if I had to do a J5 five, it would probably go like this:
1. clean lines
2. simple design
3. pop culture (or popular theme, if pop-cult is barred)
4. whimsicle geekery [sic]
I continue to benefit from the time you spend giving me feedback ... Thanks, again.
