Every one of us is either in the "loved" stage or the "pre-loved" stage. Just like objects, people can get handed down and passed around before they finally find that perfect someone.

This is the story of an average man looking to be loved.

Hope you enjoy.

Yeay at the most literal take on the Pre-Loved theme and double yeay for it being this inspiring! Not something i would wear but something that deserves a printing, LOVE the subtle change in color smudges throughout the piece and the overall comedy/sincerity/sweetness of the design, three moods which are hard to juggle together!

hahah this is so awesome! Eventually you can do the sequel starting on the ¨love¨ then the relationship goes to shit with ¨selfishness¨ then ¨infidelity¨ then ¨jealousy¨ then ¨divorce¨ then ¨bitterness¨ then ¨double murder¨ then ¨prison¨....erm...anyway would wear this in a heartbeat!

Surely a top contender for the contest and one of my favorites in terms of thinking and execution. Very fresh $5

So good. And the graduation from gray to red is so smart.

I'm actually surprised at how good it looks on the tshirt - I'd totally wear this. And the titles for the stages are spot on. Really great work!

You got my $5

It's all about the awkward stage.

This is nice, i was waiting for a "the pie in the face" or "kick in the crotch" at the end.
