I reeeeeally hope that's a joke, jock. Otherwise that is the dumbest thing I have EVER seen.

jock05tees, holy crap!
is that really where you know this painting from?
im sorry for you.
i didnt state it in the comments, but this is based of one of the most famous paintings ever made by an american artist, grant wood. it is called 'american gothic' hence, the title 'american psychedelic'
im pretty sure'deperate housewives' will be ok with this.

jock05tees: I knew there was something wrong with you- you aren't American. Im sorry for your disability. Do you need some help? Hopefully someday we can build a handicap ramp to wheel you all the way to this great country.

Tom: Great work, 5$

Everyone else: Seriously, your countries are cool too...I mean it...not joking...at all...in the least...you know I love...well..somewhere that isn't the United States of America.

Dear Tom...I am on my way to your house to steal your computer. Be sure to have your dog locked up in the kitchen...or clip his nails. Dear Jock- Don't compare what you did (an exact replica of someone elses art) to what Tom here has done (a stylized twist on someone else's art). He was inspired. You were lazy.

the looney toons pitchfork is the most psychodelic element of the entire design (besides the color combos of course), and people want you to remove it!?!?! A pox on them i say! I agree with some of the folks who wish you to go even further out into LSD territory with the design, perhaps with a third eye on the farmer's head, etc. You and glennz are hit-shirt making machines!

thanks everyone! this is one of my favorites!
the reason i didnt go farther with the psychedelia is beacuase i didnt want it to get too far out for most people. :) i would dfinately wear it if they both had third eyes and there were demons and stuff flying around, but i was scared that many people wouldnt get that or be as into that.
thanks again!

thanks anyway

yep, i know about it being parodied, but i was referring to "I have seen it done in psychedelia before".
becasue i scoured the internet before i did this to see if it had been spun that way, and i found that id hadnt.

ghondooby

Awesome, but I think the text should be added to the shirt.

Actually I'm just kidding- I've never heard anyone say that before and I've always wanted to say it.

"seems like you just vectorized the image and modified it"

haha, nope.

"Not very hard. In fact, not hard at all."

well, maybe not as hard as cornell university or being hot, but it wasnt easy. i like all the submissions you have worked really hard on! great job! :)
