YAY! You rock.

i like the imagery and execution, but i feel like this is a tired idea. i can think of at least 2 or 3 other designs using the exact same idea but with different animals

it has a cool composition, and i like the speckled look on the fish bodies so they aren't so flat.

Nice work man, and if the whole thing was intentionally supposed to look like a giant clam, even more points $5

not my favorite design of yours... just meh'
nice to see you designing again though... did that huge amount of cash you earned awhile back run dry?

weird how we both subbed blue designs about people dying underwater at nearly the same time...I think I like yours better...yes, I probably do.

I personally hate really large contiguous areas of solid plastisol. Aside from what I feel is the stylistic suitability in this instance, 'fading' serves the practical purpose of breaking those areas of ink up.
Distressing has been used fairly commonly as a technique since screenprinting began & with the limited arsenal of tools available to create texture within the process I don't really see it as a trend.
I hope that didnt sound too defensive.

glad someone but me got the FNM reference. Lovely shirt.

It's funny because I can't imagine Mike Patton wearing this design. Perhaps if one of the toothy fish were gnawing off the scuba's foot or something.

Good work, friend. Not my style (as you know) but this totally works regardless. I am enjoying that one lone tentacle twisted at the top.
