I can think of at least 20 people that I could get this for who would wear it a week straight...the only question I have is, where would the text go on the shirt?

nice concept. that's one seedy bar:)


I'm not going to lie, the sleeves still bug me because now I can't tell if it's fabric or skin, but I think it's killer anyway.

People, you don't need the text for this tee! I think the concept is pretty self-explanatory as is! Grypes, way to please fans of all the three sub-genres of badasses this site seems to adore more than their old Care Bear collections! Really nice coloring and touches on this one man!


i think this would look a lot better without the background and the pubs i love it though, the design is amazing.


Can you put the text on the back of the shirt in a small square window or something... I actually want the text on this one.


haha, i love the concept


I don't mind the concept, but the execution is kind of unskilled.

The spacing of all the different elements is too conservative, and doesn't create atmosphere or draw your eye to what's going on in the image. The muted, boring colours don't help either. I'd like it better if the robot was huge.

And why does it say "BAR" and "PUB" on the windows? It's surely one or the other.

The concept is very good. And I like the inks. That light blue/lavender shade works nice.

What you need to focus on when you are making layouts, is hightlighting the focal point (in this case, the 'joke'). There is too much unimportant stuff in the background that we do not need, that draws attention away from your punchline. We can tell they are in a bar/pub without the windows & exit door. Plus, it makes everything so squished in on the shirt proper.

Once you eliminate the unimportant aspects, you can really bump up the scale & detail in your focal point.

Also, the way you worked the brown on the bartop reminds me of a skidmark.

And, no, you do NOT need the text. 3

The bar looks like a skidmark/poop smear in the way it is roughly paint brushed on there. I do not think you need the brown fill. It is just another aspect that is uneeded since we will still know they are sitting at a bar. In fact, NONE of the brown ink is needed.

Hm. Know what would be funny? If you did a slightly different angle on this and reversed it. The characters are each so individualistic that we'd be able to recognize them from the back. Thus, making the joke more subtle.

If the viewers saw the figures from the back. Then you could add in a bartender standing there, polishing a glass or something with a confused look on his face. Just an idea.

You feel me?


This is great. :) Take out the windows and it's a $5 for sure. :D


i love it but it would be better if the backkground stuff was gone. just the bar and the dudes.


That is an excellent joke. I'd never heard that one. Great job.


awesome. i think just the text 'is this a joke?' is needed.


I just don't think the artwork here is up to much.


your mums not up to much...

i wish i could go to that bar
