This is pretty cool for it complete randomness and bizarre factor.

Not bad, would have preferred it if you had hand drawn the text instead of using a font that looks hand drawn.

Thanks guys!

Matthijs - I was debating that! I typed out the phrase for placement (with the intention of drawing my own type) and then started cycling through some hand fonts I already have - just to see if that was even the route I wanted to follow. I really liked the feel of this font and decided to leave it. After I sub'd it, I started feeling a little regret...c'est la vie.

Really? That's awesome. Does that mean an obligatory hawaiian shirt day on Fridays?

ditto on drawing the font

this is fresh - i'll give it a 5 because i agree with what matthijs said about the font but if you fix that up $ will follow

yikes! (note to self) Don't ever use a typeface that I didn't draw myself on Threadless.

t-thyme

I would wear this in homage to a gal I knew named "Nola". No, she wasn't a showgirl, but she did drink herself half-blind. Ahhhh... the good ole days!

5 for nostalgia and another 5 for your skills. :)

their is a reason for the feedback - why go to the trouble of creating a striking and fairly original and beautiful illustration and then chuck someone else's typeface over the top...

what you have done isn't bad but why not make the characters your own and give them your own feel, maybe lay the words out a little more dynamically also, but what you have done serves it's purpose...

it's not bitching when you still get praise and high scores, it's just sweating the details to top off the existing quality.

You certainly have my attention and it helps that I really like the song.

I know. I'm not complaining. I was more commenting on people repeating the same critique.

As for the layout, that was intentional - I'm not one for leaving widows (especially multiple widows), but on this particular illustration and the story it tells, I thought I was being clever by leaving "widows."

I appreciate all the comments and feedback. Thanks!

I like it a lot!!!! Has that extra interesting...

i can't believe people are grilling you so badly for using a pre-made font. i'm usually first to comment when a font isn't working but this one just IS. you can hardly tell that it isn't hand-drawn, and in any case if you hadn't admitted that this was premade i would have assumed you premade an alphabet yourself and used the same letters over again. christ there's no harm in that when it's actually working.

^haha at glamjets. what a bugger that person is - always first to criticize but not with good suggestions.

this has GOT TO print.

really dope, i own both of his^^ light colored tees so im not against white/natural tees, but i think this design would look boss on a colored tee

lola

no one ever seems to think about the fact that there are actually normal girls named lola. i guess what i'm saying is, i don't appreciate this stereotype being perpetuated.

but if that type is hand-drawn, it is nice.

hot pepper

you is bonkers!! More More More you little showgirl!!

Elle s'appelait Lola, elle était Show Girl
Avec ses plumes et son chapeau
Sa robe fendue de bas en haut
Elle dansait chantait
L'Cha-cha, l'meringué
