This is an amazing illo, as are all your submissions but I would never wear it.

WTF with the japanese and tentacle porn I don't get it?!

I am pretty sure that john2 didnt take this concept from some bizarre tentacle porn loving artist. It isn't THAT original a concept to come up with.

Ah the japanes love of the the soothing yet slimy touch of the tentacle dates back all the way to the mesozoic

the concept is obviously adapted from the Japanese woodcuts and paintings but, please, who the hell doesn't know that? artists, designers, illustrators draw their inspiration from something, soon you ppl will be accusing us of stealing from from nature.... duh

let's move on now....

Hey! She's skinny! That's just not fair. I like them fat women.

The drawing, as usual, is exceptional. The color, though, leaves a bit to be desired. Still, a top-notch design, though too big on the shirt.

Neato. And I love her bizarro feet.

Thanks for the comments so far! And thank you Rahna for your insight. Although I had the most innocent of intentions with this piece it really doesn't matter because it's all about how the viewer interprets it. If you want to see it as an octopus going to town then thats's great too! I actually kind of like that it turned into something alot more sexual than it is, hopefully it makes people laugh instead of barfing a little in their mouths.

Again, amazing.

I don't understand why people have such a problem enjoying good art for its own sake on this site. They either have to qualify their praise by saying that they wouldn't wear it or that it's not your best work - or they have to go back two centuries to find the artist you "copied."

If it wasn't for the artists on this site you'd all be wearing Old Navy logos, people. Let's lighten up a little.

In fairness, this site isn't about art "for its own sake." It's about art that you would wear. That's the entire point of the site, of rating submissions, of everything Threadless: making T-shirts for you to buy. So saying you wouldn't wear something is eminently valid, as Threadless is not in the business of selling paintings, comic books, posters (at least not any more), or anything but art that people will purchase and wear.

And it's a tad condescending to say we'd only wear Old Navy. What about Abercrombie and Fitch? ;)
