Taken (literally) from the brief! As usual, 4 colours and shirt colour coming through. If you'd like to see a larger version, check out my profile.Later, and good luck to all.Mr Rocks
That's going to be someday... heeeheeeee!
Actually sorry guys and gals. The image at my profile is exactly the same size as this one above, but still feel free to pop on over there for a gander & comment.
self portraiture is so in right now. love your work
I absolutely love this. Possibly more than Powered by Mezcal (Which reminds me of these collector card/stickers from my youth. You didn't happen to draw any of those in the mid 80s did you Rock?!? )
5$ as with all your work.
One question.. what's he drinking?
Carbonated prune juice.
This is something like l submitted already but hasn't been on Threadless.
Pretty good. I wouldnt wear it, but still. Nice colours.
I like it, and the Stars make it even more fun. Great job.
you know the illustration is great as always...but one thing bothers me...there just aren't enough rocker items on the guy. Perhaps instead of wristbands you would show spiked bands...maybe an earring...or tatoos...I dunno he kind of looks more athletic than a rocker.
And is he drinking milk? Maybe make it a beer...Anyway overall great job. But as is I would not buy it.
haha yeah its already sweet....maybe add some tatoos or an earing like Mdepot says
give him some faded blue tattoos ;)
Great illustration. Old people. Rocking. Good combination. I like the suggestions that MDepot made. Killer illustration/concept.
Awesome style. I would buy this for one of my aging parents. :)
Jesus didn't you win the IFC contest yet? Great idea and great illustration. If the rest of the entries are half this good I'll be surprised. I'm not sure about the stars in the background, and there was a certain quality I liked about your IFC entry... the way you used less color to convey the idea.
It's funny and clever, and the art is good, but it's too cartoony for me to wear. I still give it a fiver, cause it doesn't get much funnier than a rascal scooter.
you've done it again...5! and i'd be very surprised if you didn't win the IFC thing.
lose the stars and its awesome.
tattoos and earrings would overdo it. this is perfect.
Thanks for the feed back so far guys...
Thanks SAILONSILVERGIRL. I too think that it would get too busy and small in detail with those extras. As a 'published', full colour illustration, I could really go for it, but feel it has enough in it already.
I never really thought about what he could be drinking, it's more the fact he's singing into the straw as some kind of faux microphone. But prune juice is a brilliant suggestion.
Take off the star bg. And it's awesome!
very cool, reminiscent of something I've seen before, hmmm.....
glad to see another submission from you hope to see some more considering there are three freakin contests running right now.
The stars are sweet, your style is the bomb
Thanks Mr Rocks for the nice comments on my submission, l given you a 5 but thats because this is hot $$$.
fuck'n cool but I wouldn't wear it
that's what i'm gonna be like when i'm old and moldy....except a chick.
The second 5 score I've ever awarded. Well done indeed sir!
That would be awesome!...just not in brown.
i love it; 5$
get rid of the stars
Hello, color limitations!
But a really awesome design despite that :D
Hey Mr Rocks,
Just curious... did you draw this then scan it, streamline it, then colour it in Illustrator? Curious as to how you come up with this magnificent artwork? I've tried streamlining, but it always outlines funnily... frustrating!
Questions answered at my profile...
Hey afishcalledsid, you know you're only allowed to use a max of 4 colours right?
I don't see anything wrong with his four colors. I check and the white on the socks and the white on the skin are the same. it's just an illusion i guess.
So they're spot colours right... but you can use tints of each spot?
Ahhh and he's a kiwi aswell! Didn't think there'd be many of us on here
taykay... go over to my profile to get the feedback and post questions. Ta...
Loose the stars and i definitely buy it. Gorgeous.
The stars are distracting, but the illustration is wonderful!
I like it a lot, but without the stars.
maybe you could have just one star around his hand.
Good fat lines, love it. That's me in 2040!
such a funny shirt. awesome. 5 id so buy it.
I love that
How the hell did this only get 2.32? There has been a MAJOR increase in teenie boppers on this site and I think flipping brilliant designs that would appeal to everyone are suffering too much. They are voting down brilliant stuff like the design above because (1) they cannot relate to older people because they are just too cool and (2) if they can picture someone older than themselves in it it just isn't cool because only they know what cool is and only they can be cool. They forget that not everything they experience is absolutely brand spanking new!
Damn I'm getting old! But damn how silly little teenagers piss me off with their "I know all and I'm just too cool" attitudes!!!
I hope this wins and gets printed despite the cheeky buggers who voted this down.
Agreeing with Strawbs.
This deserves much more than a 2.32.
