A Flock of Evil
This text-based design incorporates two famous poems about birds that were considered evil in one way or another.
On the front is the complete original text of "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. In the poem, the narrator believes the bird is evil due to its constant repetition of "nevermore," especially in response to the narrator's question of whether or not he'll ever be reunited with his true love, Lenore.
On the back is an albatross composed of the first verse of "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" by Samuel Coleridge. In this poem, the albatross is originally a sign of good luck until the captain of the ship decides to kill it with his crossbow. After doing so, the ship is more or less sent to hell, and the captain watches as all of his crewmen die. At the end of the poem we learn that the captain is forced to wander the earth, telling his story to whomever he meets.
This shirt uses poems that are in the public domain, and it's more than willing to be printed in time for Halloween. Click here for a super hi-res version.
LOVE IT. $5
absolutely amazing job!! 5$
i can't say lose the text this time.... great idea and art!
hahahah macquarian. haha
a shirt like this was on woot!!!!!
Hey, I remember this!
And no, Macquarian. No, it shouldn't.
i'm scoring this just for you, brian-- nice job!
Thanks for the comments so far.
And Papyrus isn't actually on the shirt...
Very cool! Love it and I would definitely purchase it! This is definitely my style!
the raven is rockin'.
I can't believe that you used papyrus font.
The raven is pretty neat though.
I love the way it looks, you really made it work well, but...to me, anything involving The Raven has been done ad nauseam and is just repetitive. Everywhere you go you see The Raven. Give the Pit and the Pendulum some love. Or the Fall of the House of Usher. Enough with The Raven:(
I guess that'd ruin the bird theme, though. Going with a strong 4~
think it'd be better with just the seagull front and centered.
It's an albatross, people. Not a seagull :-p
But thanks for all the feedback so far!
with english degree in hand, i give you a 5
I know it's not on the shirt, but the papyrus sent me into cardiac arrest when I landed on this page. Great design.
Interesting, I like it!
i love the little yellow beak on the <del>seagull</del> albatross. this would look really good as a poster as well as a shirt.
i meant to strikethrough the "seagull"...comment fail!!!
I love birds
thanks for the score, everyone!
and again, there would be no papyrus on the actual shirt. i've now learned my lesson: never use papyrus anywhere ever!
WOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice score!
great idea... love the use of the words and forum and the colors
