MooseInMyShoe: I think you got it right, or I guess you could say that she is "imagination" and she is being mourned by magical creatures. Whatever floats your boat.

Serious print on the cards.

lovely lovely lovely!

mooseinmyshoe

sweet. i think the concept of the shirt is shown really well. and it doesn't hurt that everything is super-adorable

helo

What an amazing cast of creatures. And the coloring is great too -- the light blue helps foster the mood even more

Thanks guys. I'm glad that you likes it.

What's the deal with mentioning posters? I would love to see this on a poster as well, but 5 colors... that's a ton of $$$$$.

I thought I was awesome because of so many comments, then I saw how many repeats there were. Anyway, I guess there were some problems with Threadless last night.
I'm glad that everyone likes this so much. It was fun working with 5 colors.
And Spacesick (I even asked my wife) but sorry, I'm not allowed to do anything with your manginity, though I am very tempted.

Wow... why did I make that bold?

I really like the visual style, the monsters look awesome, but I don't think the message is very easy to read. (if it weren't for the title, I wouldn't have thaught it was about imagination...)

I love the colors, but the white creature on the right creeps me out a bit...

Mike Laughead
Mike Laughead profile pic Artist

Wait... the hot white creature chick creeps you out? Sometimes the stuff I draw creeps me out as well.
I'm glad that so many people are liking this. I would love to wear it around.
Here is a link to a bigger version:

Dudoman: I can see what you're saying about everyone being dead fitting the title better. I was going for more of a cute/sad, so I like this way better, but I do totally read what you are saying.

Knuklehedz: SBSP? What does that even mean?... to everyone else, thanks for the positive feedback. I'm hoping this one does well with the voting, I would love to have this on a shirt.

this had better score well, i want it!

This cast of monsters and your choice of colors are really neat. As mentioned before, it reminds me of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends yet at the same time, I look at it and see something completely original. You've done an amazing job, I hope this gets printed. :)

NessaChan

I like this a ton but it makes me so sad T__T

Some of them are repeats from the couple of days that the blogs were messed up, but yeah, there are quite a few comments. I wonder how it's going to score.

I've never had that many people vote on my shirt before. 2.92 is the best score I've ever recieved, so that's not too bad. FionaB: did you vote before the score was up?

staffell
staffell profile pic Alumni

2.92 is an amazing score! (and yes she did mike)

Mike Laughead
Mike Laughead profile pic Artist

Staffell: thanks. If this gets printed just send me an email FionaB
