Re: The Art of War



Based off of Sun Tzu's book which will hopefully one day be turned into a musical.

Thanks to everyone who gave input in the pre-derby thread!

Re: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea



Fun Fact:
-When the Nautilus returns to the Atlantic Ocean, a "poulpe" (usually translated as a giant squid, although the French "poulpe" means "octopus") attacks the vessel and devours a crew member.-

Re: Elementary



A tribute to Sherlock Holmes. Not sure about the shirt color though, originally had the letters black but, I like black shirts so changed to red. I would have liked to keep the letters black, so any thoughts on which shirt color would look good with that would be great!

Re: Book of Verses ("Invictus")



I absolutely love the poem "Invictus" from Henley's Book of Verses, and this was my attempt at putting it together, with the final phrase in the eye of the storm...

Re: Songs of Innocence & Experience (Innocent Ver.)



From William Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience, which contains The Lamb and The Tyger. For the Lamb, I wanted something fairly straghtforward, and for the Tyger, I wanted it to be more chaotic, and to incorporate part of Blake's vision of the dragon in it.

This version places Innocence on top, and Experience below.

Re: The Odyssey



In the Odyssey, the Sirens sing a song so irresistible that none can hear it and escape. Circe warns Odysseus of the danger and tells him how to avoid it. He must plug up his mens' ears with beeswax, and have himself tied to the mast.

Well if the sirens looked like this, covering their eyes would've also helped!

Re: Firemakers - White Fang



From Jack London's White Fang.
In particular the quote: "They were firemakers! They were gods!" Part 3, Chapter 1, pg. 76. This image came to me while reading this .... well, too long ago.
5 colors on black.... thanks for looking!

Hope you guys like the design. I liked the challenge of trying to incorporate the "A" subtly into an elegant design.

This version makes no sense since the first book is Innocence.

Re: Alice in Wonderland - Cake

Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words “EAT ME” were beautifully marked in currants.

Usually that means that you must release your derivative work under the same license. Anyway, it's still a photo. The rule isn't "only public domain photos, or ones you took yourself", it's "no photos".
