Hi, sometimes, i look at my first illustrations for Threadless (one year ago) and i think that the concept was strong, but not the execution. Here, i wanted to give this idea a new life, for the same reason. My inspiration what at the time a song of the Stereophonics "Thousand Trees". I hope you'll like it, i wanted to do something very simple and expressive this time to let the concept his full strength.

Nice. Usually dividing a design into panels is kind of intellectually lazy, but here is is the perfect solution. Your fire illustration is especially strong, good work!

I thought you were taking this off of somebody else since i remebered this tee design quite well, but stealing off yourself isn't illegal (yet). Fantastic concept the last time, and i also like the way you went about this this time as well...so a 5$ to you all over again! Maybe a TAD bit bigger?

Thanks everybody!!!! Frickinawesome, eheheh, thanks for the memory, don't worry, i never steal ideas, because, what would be the pleasure? for the TAD bigger, i agree with you.

mjoo, thanks for comments, i'm happy to read you after the discussion we have on my last design ;-)

Good design, I like it.

DrVSP

which is the original? you have so many I couldn't find it in the thumbnails. I promise to judge this on its merits alone. I just like to see how things evolve.

i love it!

1 tree makes 1,000,000 matches.
1 match burns down 1,000,000 trees.

amazing.

GlazedKoala

$5.
Great concept. It's well drawn (far better looking than your original) and clearly conveys its message.

My only issue is the arrow for the second panel to the third... I agree there should be a connection between them, but 1000000 matches don't turn into a single flaming match.
Honestly though, it's so good that even unchanged i $5 it.

Thanks everybody!!!!

glazedkoala, the arrow from the second panel to the third is interpreted like that: from those 1000000, you just need a single (flaming) match to burn down 1000000 trees, so this arrow is perhaps not necessary, but still logical ;-)

wasn't it 1000?

Jebs
Jebs profile pic Artist

thanks!

staffell, yes it was 1 thousand, but it's not a good number, far from the truth, 1 million is IMO much significant ;-)

chellefish, the concept of 2 in the front, and two in the back is REALLY good! i should have thought of this earlier...

druff

stereophonics had a tee like this

valeriieee

this is probably completely a coincidence, but i saw something quite similar to this in a magazine i had as a kid. "highlights" or something similar to that, i believe. all i remember (after seeing this one) was it was a design drawn by a little boy, with this exact concept. as i said, i'm sure it's a complete coincidence. and still a good concept either way. :)

Jebs

pure coincidence of course ;-)
