Books Are Good For You
i love it, but it makes me think the speaker is my shoulder.
Thanks for the comments!
chelly, I can see what you're saying...The speech bubble is ambiguous so you can take it as either the wearer of the shirt saying the words, or the little kid's unseen mom. Kind of a choose-your-own-adventure depending on your opinion of books. :) But if it bothers people, I can change the "pointy thing" on the speech bubble so it's angled more to the left.
i'm not crazy about the yellow, but this is very cool...
very very very very very
Keep the text, but it doesn't need to be in a speech bubble. Aside from that, I love it.
love it - 5$ great style! cant wait to see more of your subs.
I really want this. i love the wallpaper, and i think the font should stay as out of a book, not hand-done. $$$$$.
love the idea, colour and texture, pattern, wonderful! 5
Thank you all for the feedback!
mad cat & Alex M. Solefish: I tried out hand-drawn text (several variations), but it just looked too sloppy/cartoony, so I experimented with using a typeface and really liked the way this looks like it was cut out from a book and lends the phrase an air of authority. I also think it enhances the slight "vintage children's book illustration" feel.
The wallpaper comes from a pattern swatch in Illustrator. I used it as a placeholder to make sure a patterned background wouldn't be too distracting, but it was perfect so I decided to keep it. I texturized the wallpaper a bit to give it a faded, more tactile feel.
BeeBubble: I love your dictionary anecdote. And yep, books feed the brain... so devour 'em! :)
love that pattern in the background!
I need this shirt!
In case it's showing up as otherwise on anyone's monitor, this design is on a pale yellow background (banana/lemon t-shirt)...not screamin' YELLOW-yellow.
