All you favourite will make an appearance in volumes II and III. Besides - Groucho's specs are too similar to Lennon's to be included in this Volume. And Dame Edna is a character - these are actual personalities, as mentioned in the blurb at the top.

I love it - I know at least two of my speccy friends who would love this. And my eyes have been doing strange things recently, so it's possible I might have to join their ranks.

I was gonna say Charles Nelson Rilley but you basically have the sunglass version of his in Jackie O's. =)

And when you say 'most of these people', you mean Lennon.

Thanks for the links Kevin. The one you found buried on flickr is the only one with a similar concept, but most people on Threadless will appreciate the subtleties of my design over the slogan name tagging of that design. The other one is just spec silhouettes so there wasn't really any point in posting that one. Unfortunately there are no original ideas - as Adam White said, above - he had this same concept 4 years ago, but I think this one remains different enough from the ones you found.

I love the history bit involved in this and hand drawn stylin.' I might say the best tee ive seen displaying eyewear. Rad!

Fatheed- I always think that that line "there is nothing new" is the biggest artistic cop-out in the world. There are obviously new things, and we see them from week to week, it's justnthat this is not the most unique idea. But no one has done it with so much paniche and captured the spirit of the people within their eyewear so well, so sometimes doing something a bit better is good enough for me. I wouldn't wear the other versions of this idea...i'd wear this one. 4$

$5. Loving the work.

wow !! so 5 $ !! and i love Jackie O =]

mullmuggins

Wow, those examples Kevin gave are... Nothing like this!

That's like saying that you can't have a design with an elephant in it because it's "been done"!!!

sanaawarhol

Wow, people seem to like it. I was thinking, though, it might have worked with keys but it doesn't work with sun glasses. Mmh.

Loving the hand-drawn style of the specs. And I like the way that the names are there so people can investigate, but they are small and subtle enough that they don't hijack the design.
