It will make you feel sexy, too.

I think it's just a zombie....

brownstar

I mean, haven't you ever seen the music video for Thriller?

Robsoul

jezbuz piradical, take a second look, it's a rotting zombie

awesome work, really dig your style 5+$

The line art is really nice, but the zombie doesn't read clearly as a zombie to me (a more greenish color would do the trick, and this might be the kind of thing that varies from monitor to monitor).

I don't think that's a zombie. It definitely looks like the artist thinks negroes are a bigger nuisance than gophers.

hahahahahahahh

BrandonB11

concerning the design... the linework and actual art is great... but i agree in making the zombie look more zombie like because as you can see peopel are mistaking this for racist

still a 4

Some people are silly.

Only white guys can be zombies? Racists.

Love it.

A great shirt for US boarder control...

I made some minor changes. Hopefully he looks a little more like a zombie.

Thanks for the comments.

yeah the crisp shirt and tie kinda throws off the zombie feel....but it really is nicely done...concept can get lost as proven earlier...

courtney pie

i really like it, and the revised one, but maybe make him even more zomibe like tho.. cause this idea is super fab

FRICKINAWESOME

I didn't get zombie at all from my first glance of this. I got black accountant. Maybe if you chip away some of the flesh on the face so you can see it's bones? nice idea and illo tho...but i wouldn't buy it as is.

xprivate_eyex

he doesn't look zombie-ish enough, other than that it's good.

WAIT. Is that comic freaking sans on the little signs? KILL IT WITH FIRE. New font please.

the changes you made to "zombify" the guy were very far from enough. Try taking out chunks of his hair, making it look less neat. Take a chunk out of his ear. Rip the shirt. There are a lot of things you could do.

oh and remove the dumb little music notes.

I;m starting to wonder- have you see the controversy around Resident evil 5?

Great design- but he really doesn't look like a zombie

mlnewco

also muss up his hair & clothes a bit more

brownstar

Yeah the signs don't work for me either. The greenish colour should be the face completely, not just green patches.

Anyone who thinks this is racist needs to get out of the house once in a while.

jsitzer9

That's ridiculous, everyone knows that zombies come out of the ground hands and arms first. Haven't you seen a zombie flick? THe gentleman on this T-shirt appears to be a person of color.

herky

hilarious work, great illustration and colors

artdrops

nice illustration. I figured it was a zombie because he had no pupils, but you should of included rotting/ falling skin, hair that doesn't look like its been brushed, and large dark rings around the eyes with a greenish tone to his skin.

other wise, great!

kij200

agreed.
fix skin + the suit.
otherwise hot.

maddingo

HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHa.... i knew there was going to be a problem w/ this sub from the thumbnail..

MooseDinner

Giving somebody brown skin and calling them a nuisance = not well thought out.

heyheyitsme

this is a funny idea!

the new version is slightly better

still needs greenish skin, and yes my first thought too was why is he black? i didn't figure out he was a zombie at first...

ekrass

zombie should be more zombieful;) anyway - cool idea

jkata332

The design seems a tad racially provocative.
If a person saw you strollin' down the street, sippin a coke & wearing that particular little doozy, I really doubt the first thing to come to mind is 'Zombies! Gopher's equal!'

But ah well, that's what we get when we're taught to patronise other races.

courtney pie

i really hope that you decide to re-sub this with some of the alterations, it's a friggin awesome idea

heyheyitsme

yeah i hope you re-sub too! i was thinking of this design a day later (today) while driving and still getting amusement out of it!

No account?
