I lost my dad recently due to cholesterol problems. I like the design but sensitivity issues prevent me from rating it accordingly, so for fairness sake I won't rate it.

Cute idea though.

I think it's HILARIOUS that a lot of you believe that stickymike developed that style of illustration. I like stickymike's work, but seriously, that's not his style...unless, of course, he worked for almost every cartoon illustrator in the 1920s/30s

[whirzle1] i think everyone is having a problem with this submission looking very similar to stickymikes submissions... not just that he developed this style (which he didn't)...
but stickymike certainly has carved his on niche here as doing illusrations like this.. it's like direct copy...


I have a problem with people saying that stickymike "owns" this niche. Stickymike has 3 designs in this "style". That's like saying that every slick vector illustration is a copy of d3d's work. Or every pop culture reference is a glennz.

I think if people would look around more instead of having Threadless as their only source of art, they wouldn't automatically say "Stickymike-influenced" and would instead see it as an early-20th century cartoon influence. .

^^this from the guy that's scored over 18ooo subs...

whirzle1 makes a great point and The Golden Sparrow
provided two links in his comments to old characters
that used the "Pacman" eyes decades and decades ago.

Here's a link to a webpage where the author
actually focuses his attention on how so many
old characters's eyes look like "Pacman"
( it's halfway down the page )
