Runnin' Down A Dream
I was listening to my mp3 player when "Runnin' Down A Dream" by Tom Petty came on. I immediately thought of this contest and looked up the video. In the video, Tom is cartoonized into the comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland. This is a beautiful Sunday comic drawn by Winsor McCay in which a little boy, Nemo, travels to a fantastic place called Slumberland when he dreams. So, here is Nemo running down his dream. I hope you enjoy it.
This placement could also be switched with the large scene on front and Nemo on back.
Here's a link to a larger image Runnin' Down A Dream
Love it! Classic song and great design!
it's up! hooray! thanks for the feedback friends :)
Here's closeups (broken into 4 sections, left to right)
This is sooo much fun!!
ty mark. i tried to fit as much fun into it as possible without inducing seizures. the shirt for this template was kind of skinny, so possibly the design could be bigger on a real shirt? :)
i can't stay awake any longer. please don't be afraid to comment folks, i don't bite (all the time).
Very nice style; those plain colors are awesome!
love it, love the song, love the style. 5!
o and welcome back ;)

Thanks! Me too!
Super cool dynamic idea!
Yeah, it's like you can hear it........5!
SWEET DESIGN! Good interpretation of the song!
Ty reed. Ty nick :)
two fronts in the t-shirts
Sorry about that. Visualize one as the back ;)
haha wow a tee with two fronts... i dont think thats ever been done before. ;)
I like your style. Don't be afraid to use more space on the tee!
Oh yeah jerbing, I'm magical like that. I cast a PhotoShopus Ignoramus spell. Be very afraiiiiid!
Ty andy! See previous comment.
Wonderful world and colors. I enjoy this unusual placement too. Great job laura!! :) 5$
ty mango! i have seen this placement called back/front. personally i'd say it's more of a front/back. but what do i know...hee hee!
tom petty was my favorite beach boy
ooh ipear, why i oughtta!
cartoon steam coming out of ears
Fresh style !

Ty! Happy Friday!

Great concept and unique illustration.
hey petty pal! U're too funny! Like your design and concept! The style reminds me of peter max! :) very cool!
A really fun take on an incredible (and already animated video...glad you went with another style completely) video, perfect placement and literal meaning of the song.
Ty Lola. Ty musarter.
I'll have to check out this Peter Max guy petty pal!
Ty fna, I was disappointed the video was black and white because the comic is so colorful! I wanted to emulate that for sure!
i love it
Ty guys. I truly appreciate all the feedback!
The wrap around placement, colour of tee and style of illustration are pitch perfect. I'd wear this! $4
very nice illo!!
Don't know the vid, but don't care, it looks really rad as is, and I love the use of front back, very good job (fiver of course)
I missed this for so long glad I got to score it. Nice work.
I love this! 5$, definitely!
I'd buy this.
woo hoo to the influx of comments. thanks guys!
better late than never... i have a guess the score blog up! you could win an adorable owl or fawn pillow!
ty eskope, ty eric!
Great illustration style, good luck!
And thanks for your comments on my design!
yw and thanks so much!
Cool. I'd like to see this flow more on the front of the shirt instead of a wrap around. Nice illustration style to it. Good luck :)
ty roadkill, but this fit the best for the whole 'dog chasing it's own tail' type of idea?
ty nestor :D
uve got unique style! hope to see more from you!;)
one day left!? oh crap!
lovely style, great feel!
reminds me of the books I loved reading when a child.
Love Tom Petty! Love Winsor McCay! Love your design! There's a fantastic dream-like quality about it that can't be denied!
5 for style!
ty hilary. i tried to just have fun and put in all the cute little creatures/things that i love... owls, gnomes, mushrooms, dragons, castles, etc! glad you love Winsor too. i'd love to have one of those books of his collection. the peacock was definitely most influenced by his comic.
ty from one laura to another ;)
This is a phenomenal piece!
It uses both dimensions of the t-shirt and what I love most about it is the "dream" concept illustrated so beautifully here, when the boy ends up chasing himself.
I absolutely love it and will be a fan of your work from now on.
($5) x (all my friends).
Ty kooky :)
Wow I'm speechless! I couldn't have asked for a better compliment! Ty so much and thank your friends too! :D
Great work Laura.
ty daniel sweetie!
ty pixel pixie!
wow, this is spectacular, 5!
Love the style of this tee, the dream part was well done.
This looks real nice
Ty becca, Ty Jonah!
Damn peacock is always just out of reach. But I'll get him one day.
Oh yeah... And the design is very nice too.
Better late than never Mitchell! :)
Ty everyone for the score!
Thanks all! Didn't beat my best score but I was very pleased at how much you all liked this! :D
aw, this is sweet!
voted earlier... am commenting now!
wouldnt have minded having the illo bigger with the kid right under the bubble of his dream tho (since im sure itll overlap if made bigger), would love to see moar details!
ty isme. the shirt was a bit skinny so i was afraid to blow it up and cut off any details. i'm sure it could be bigger and closer to the boy. ty for the kind words :D
