The Folly Of Youth
This is my submission for the Purple Rain theme. You see the young fella on the right is laughing (perhaps at his melting elders) - ignorant of his own impending demise! It's about the inevitability of death and the optimism of youth.
I'd say that's pretty deep.
damn you fatheed! No more good subs. NO MORE! $5.
never thought id use these two words together in a sentence but: deep and adorable! ;)
man, this is really deep. (love the wax in the eye detail!)
haha, light it up!
I would have liked to see some wrinkles or other signs of age on the elder candles, but it is deep and well done anyway
looks good on the tee.
Can the young candle have some hip shades or something? I saw this as a penile reference rather than an age thing. But my mind's perpetually in the toilet I guess. It's all TV's fault I tells ya! I'm still deathly envious of your drawing skillz though.
ME LIKE VERY MUCH! $5
cool work again
hilariously well drawn
jebus, this is genius!!!!!
great great stuff
nice work man.
love the message in this...nice
wow, fatheed, you should be a profit.
Threadless loves evil & cute combined together...and you know how to do it so well.
Oh...i thought you were saying the folly of youth as in the young kids were burning themselves as the elder sat and laughed, which didn't strike me particularly funny. Now i get it and it's all the more neato. As Ste7en already stated, please put some things on the each candle to designate they are old/young. After this has happended, I'm $'ing all over this!
but doesn't a burned down candle imply oldness, and being so tall imply that he was just lit?
i think courtney pie missed something...
anyways, i rather love this shirt. I'd like it better if the two older ones had laugh lines or wrinkles or something, but it's not even needed to make this great.
great, love the colours
strong message! pretty cute design! 5$! :D
ya, i worded that wrong. whatev. we all know what the shirt means.
Hahahe. It could be, I guess. Innuendo is in the eye of the beholder. Take from it what you want.
Jolly good! $5
dude - this sent me spiraling into depression for 5$ seconds
Based on the number of comments, I didn't think this was going that well. What a pleasant surprise! Cheers guys :-)
no diss, but you have a name now, much like glennz or some such...they see your name associated with it and they love it! you're a goldenboy...and that means i hate you...
Hmmm. Not all my recent subs have scored as well, so I don't think that's really the case. When I did the WIP for this - I said I was going for the popular cute tragic comedy concept because I know a lot of the voters have a soft spot for this kind of thing. I think if anyone else did this concept, the score would be about the same.
Yeah - I'm experimenting with a concept at the moment
haha didnt see this one while it was up for voting. very funny fatHEAD. very funny indeed.
