Awesome! I'd like it centered, I think.

I don't think it communicates the theme of the competition particularly well, but oh well.

Awesome illustration, but I do agree with the above comments about the theme.

In response to the comments that don't think this design relates to the theme, check out my description above.

In the film summary it says "clutching on to everything that was free, innocent, and fun about being young.” To some people, making a mixtape for some one they liked is a memory that encapsulates all of those things. Though you may grow old, there are still those funny little expressions that remind you of times past.

I knew this question would come up. Very observant!
I decided to make it a single cassette player so it was less wide.

Back in the day kids would request songs off the radio, and then record them. I received tapes this way growing up.

haha, "I made you a tape". Cool style. I like the monochromatic color scheme you're pimpin' here.

Great character & color. I especially love the decorative blue lines shooting out of the blue....they look like fancy armpit hair.

I like the colors and style

Other than the placement, this is fantastic.
The patterns and the overall feel of this illustration is GREAT! I just really dislike where you have it on the shirt. But, that can be changed. It would look just fine a bit larger and centered or maybe bottom placement.

If I could go back, I would have submitted this one in the Flash template with a little interactive music player. 20/20 hindsight.

I love this! I would buy it, it conveys all the feelings it should and is still something to make me smile and be a nice tshirt design.

Thank you all for the great feedback!
Although the voting is over, and in the end "i made you a tape" didn't receive a high score, I still feel very strongly about this one, and the meaning behind it.

This is on a Navy Blue shirt.

Thinking about redrawing this for a re-sub...
