..but you know what- yellow on blue is nifty and different!
yes, yellow on blue:)
as awesome as this is, I dunno if I would want to wear a shirt with Mao on it...
I like all the colours, but especially the green on green. This must have taken a LONG time.
My average is slowly going up today with all the 4's and 5's I've been giving out. Nice work.
my first comment didn't make it up.... i like the red on gray and liht on red too, but they look more common, i dig the yellow blue.
No to communism.
I have always been connected to China's industry, from sending art files to them for years now, and just recently I went there to meet my girlfriends parents. This shirt is inspired by these things, so I'm not expressing a pro or anti communism viewpoint with this design. China is what it is, and so is this potential shirt. Thanks.
Me likey. Fiven + $.
Why does it look so flacky?! :S
If you mean the graphic treatment, I was trying to capture a aged Chinese painterly look.
Why are YOU so flaky?
cuzz I'm spent from this design...zzz
Mao rawks. i love yellow on blue.
Pretty much I would love to wear a shirt with Mao on it. He's THE man!
I really like this, but I'm not sure why.
All the color choices are great; my favorite are the green and the red.
The illustrations are fantastic and the whole collage made with them is excellent... BRAVO!!!
green on green is where it's at! It's the new brown
yeah, i agree, green on green. ha, china + america = mass production
I saw it as "it is what it is" first, and not as any kind of Communist statement, so I guess that's why I like it.
Right on, gothinne!
If your wondering at all, there are two phrases written in Chinese within the dragon. From left to right, the first reads "Study Hard Improve Every Day", which was Charmin Mao’s advise to young students and hung on the wall of every classroom. The second reads " Wal-Mart Super Store". I hade the pleasure of visiting a Wal-Mart Super Store in Beijing. Picture one of our Wal-Marts stacked on top of itself four times. Yep, four story Wal-Marts. They have long flat escaladers that have a gradual incline to get form floor to floor. The escaladers have no steps so you can put your carriage on it, which have groves in the wheals to fit the groves in the escalader - so it wont roll back on you.
i'D DEFINATELY BUY THE RED ON TAN
i love the yellow on blue combo, it actually reminds me of a woodblock print, and i love it even more after reading that it says wal-mart super store!
i love the intricacy, 5$!
hm. If this gets printed, I know the perfect person to buy it for. how amusing.
oh yes, awesome. White on red is best! I want this shirt.
Interesting design, I might buy it if it's printed. I like the yellowblue and the green/green...the white/red is nifty too. Love the dragon and hidden messages :)
Upsetting makes me think of the one child policy
But great artwork just a rough subject for me
Looks lame as shit.
I like it ^__^
davidkappelt, you make me sad for humanity.
hah are those three people at the bottom making ipods?
must have this!
Love the yellow and blue and the white and red... very very awesome. 5!
yellow on blue definately. i love it. 5$
i dig this one...but only the white tee with red ink. it reminds me of wood block prints. i give it a 3
very cool! I like the yellow on blue and the red on grey!
very nice I would totally wear this. 5$
I really like it on dark grey!
Acanthus: One child policy had its own complicated painful backgroud in China histroy. It was not as simple as human rights or any other single element... This policy was not a perfect solution to China's huge population problem, but the fact is, this policy has played a very important role in China's development process... It is a sensitive topic and it is very hard to understand if people don't have enough knowlege about China and its history... Anyway, here is a quick update, the policy has been changed in the past few years: a Chinese citizen can have more than one child under certain conditions ...
Go back to this T-shirt design, I don't think it expressed any political standing, according to the statistics, 85% of Wal-Mart's suppliers are in China! The designer only turned a well-known fact into an awesome art work by using a Chinese traditional art form. 5+$!
i like the red on black and the green one.
It's great. One of the best designs I have seen at threadless. China Industry and products sucks, very poor quality things.
You get what you pay for in China. There for, you get some crap and quality. The majority of Macintosh products are made in China, hence the Ipods in the dragon.
red china. gotta use red ink though, not a red shirt. good stuff...
Print print print print print!
way too busy and confusing.
ok, so i've said before on this site that i don't like political shirts because they're highly unoriginal in that they often express run-of-the-mill political ideas/protests, and though this one portrays something that i assume many people don't think or know about, I now wonder if it would be TOO specific to people who are knowledgeable on the subject that you couldn't really mass-produce (no pun intended??) a shirt like this. for example, even though i might appreciate what you're trying to portray, i couldn't wear a shirt like this because i can't even form a proper personal opinion on it. and maybe that's just me.
