I meant to submit this to the Loves Good contest if I didn't when I submitted it the first time.

This design is about the power of ideas to elevate us beyond automatons and also the limitations of human comprehension.

The linework looks better at a larger scale. View it here.

The lightbulb dude on the floor is classic.

This is really good. And as far as Threadless goes - it's much more accessable than your previous stuff.

the concept for this is great, but i'm not really feeling the placement of it on the shirt.

Wow, a design from NGAZIN that actually looks like it was intended to be placed on a tee! I really dig the lightbulb fire head dude.

Awesome. The blue lines could be thicker, or maybe made into neg space.

The blue lines look too thin in the Threadless image but if you view the larger version on my Flickr page I think it looks good.

Sweet drawing. For some reason I feel like I would like the genie better if he were looking slightly to the side instead and not right at the viewer. . . but awesome job nonetheless.

Olie,

It's interesting that you point out the direction of the subjects' gaze and I think I can explain your feelings.

I use different tools, processes to make images but one thing that is stylistically consistent for me is confrontation of the viewer.

I have friends who will never have their characters look directly at the viewer. This causes the characters to look coy, playful, ashamed, sad...I would define what those friends do as an "indie rock", or passive, attitude. I feel punk and metal things when I draw. Punk and metal can be techically complex or simple but music from those genres are generally direct and confrontational.

Hmm well in that case NGAZIN, give that genie a bitchin' green mohawk =D

Just kiddn'. It's your design, and if you like it this way because it embodies your feelings/emotions, then that's awesome =)

interesting, i felt he was looking over my left shoulder. like he could see something behind me.

The title refers to the idea that there are freedom in limitations and freedom in limitations.

I imagined the lightbulb headed spacesuited man to just be a suit for this abstract being. The suit appears slight and weak but the gaseous being that inhabits it is imposing and satisfied with its' own being.

I gotta say that I'm kind of amazed at how low the score is myself and I am a guy with no expectations.

How did this get such a low score?? This is one of the best designs on Threadless in ages.
