Lightning Bugs and Fireflies
A discerning child knows the difference.
Love it... been a long time! 5
woo another sub
great idea and execution $5
Awesome. Can't escape the wonderful halftone madness!
Oh, I love this so much I had to have a look at all your other work and couldn't stop till I saw them all. You are sooo good! awesome effort. Love your work!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been wondering what designer hole you fell down, Mr. Buchholz! good to see you climbed out of it, dusted your self off, and drew us up a pretty different and wonderful trippy interpreatation of those little critters! Nice return to Threadless on a fabbo sub...if this is printed, it HAS to have some kind of glow-in-the-dark effect with all the lightning bolts and fire. 4$
Thanks guys! After posting this I began second guessing my color scheme. Here are some other color options....
wow u back! awesome! style abit different but i still like it.
finally you are back!!!!! hmmmm, honestly, i am not as excited as the others by your last one, because halftones are overused right now on Threadless, in my opinion, and as i am a big fan of your whole stuff on Threadless, i think this one is truly one of your weakest, in concept/idea and in execution. I mean, of course it is well rendered, and nice, because you are so gifted and talented...so my expectations are higher about your work than the others. This time, i guess you perhaps just wanted to experiment this technique of halftones... (i will do that too in the future). I hope you'll understand my comment, i am a little disappointed this time, but, you can't always create jewels, and masterpieces, can you? ;-) 3
Thanks for the comment Jebs! I know it's not my best and that's okay. I just wanted to play around with something that's a little simpler than what I've done in the past, and the halftones just seemed to fit for this. Anyhow, I appreciate your honesty!
GORGEOUS! although i have to admit that i might be a little bit biased due to fond childhood memories. $5
Welcome back Mr VanBuchholzen. It aint no emo bear, but it's still pretty sharp. I personally like the expirementation with the halftones. Really looking forward to seeing your select...till then $5.
thanks for the reply cbucholz!!! glad you understood my comment, because i think that when you are at the top of your art, like you are in threadless, it's important to read people who try keep an objective look, so you can still improve. PS: I still hope that your Pre-Columbus will be printed one day :-)
brings back some memories
This is wonderful! Definitely $5 and I don't give a crap if it "isn't your best" or whatever. I really love this and would truly enjoy wearing it :-)
love the design! not sure if i would buy it on green though, maybe navy?
I love it but maybe on another tee color? $5 anyway it's terribly good.
woah dude, long time no see!!!!
wow, different style for you. I like it a lot.
Those bugs with the flames shooting out of their butts must have eaten spicy food the night before.
Good work! Very summer-y. 4
I would buy this for both my kids. & possibly a few of their friends.
$5 on the purple-y color. $4.99 on the teal, $4.50 on the green. Yummy all around.
ha! There is no real difference, except in my imagination there is.
"A discerning child knows the difference" – hahahaha! This is great, and very different than your usual subs! Your halftone treatment really helps give the composition some movement.
Have I ever given you anything less than $5??
I like how you incorporated the subtleness of the "fire" for the fireflies and "lightning bolts" of the bugs. Great halftones.
this design is pure awesome.....
it better get printed
print it already
love your work always and this one great! keep it up! cbuchholz!
OMG I LOVE THIS!!!!
LIGHTNING BUGS FTW!
Also... I prefer it on the deep teal or the purple.
Love this! I have to say I prefer the darker color options though.
