great concept... more colours indeed

This made me squeal with delight. Wonderful! On grey/dark grey or other dark color would be best. $5

"some say the glass is half full, others say the glass is half empty. Me, I say the milk is sour"

its good but the couple i the happy half seem to have been decapitated ( irealise its just a matter of perspective)

i remember seeing this like ten years ago... you really did a good job with it, the only thing i really really dont like is the people at the bottom, they just destroy the illustration for me

great idea, good execution. i wish everything was more hand-drawny than smooth vectors. however it's still a 5 either way.

Definitely your best sub yet, you've really come into your own style. I like it on natural the best. Incredible work.

mayumi

mm...weird placement maybe?
I love it though.

soo good! 5!

rudra

those are masculine colors? uh-ok.

anyway - I agree about the people on the bottom - they bug me.

I think it's because they look too proportioned (like silhouttes from a traced photo) in comparison to the other images which have a cartoony feel. maybe if you replaced them with more cartoony looking people...

it's a good concept - it's somewhat counterintuitive that the doom&gloom is above the sunshine&butterflies (empty/full) - but that adds to the image

and i like the ash grey and greenish-grey colors in your profile

Great job josh! I love the connection between the two worlds via the kite. It kind of implies that there is soon to be turmoil in the optimist world. I'm an optimist so I would prefer the cream, although the slate looks slightly nicer.

I really hope this one gets printed. It's such a great design.

threadless, this better get printed. especially with all the crap you've been printing lately that's not nearly as good.
