a play on revolutionary symbolism and that famous saying from Gil Scott Heron 's poem back in the day, "the revolution will not be televised"
i made a 3d blocky hand, like a fist, then drew tvs on it in illustrator.
the 'as seen on tv' play on design is intended to be small on the upper back/nape of neck area.
LARGE VERSION on my BLOG

lol is it suppose to make a fist lol or am i seeing things!?...haha but i like it =D

icebar... this looks nothing like FreqenCity, plus you're missing the message the image is trying to convey. Agreed the fist could of been a bit more refined, but I actually prefer it this way... it leave's it open to interpretation. Nice work tomburns!

BOO-URNS BOO-URNS!!! I've been waitin' like crazy for a new design from ya on this site and not just awesome older designs of yours being printed on nudge nudge wink wink! Great concept and striking on the yellow...icebar, i loves ya but that Frequentcity sub has very little to do in concept or style other than they both feature televisions. 4$

Nice concept and illo man. For some reason I feel like they should be sitting in recliners, but maybe I'm missing the whole point of the design. Awesome though. 5

The bit on the back is esp. hilarious. Nice work.

Completely different from FrequinCity. Just because it has a bunch of TVs doesn't mean it's the same thing. Stop placing subs in generalized categories, you wankers! This concept is obviously different than the other design mentioned. Check the message both are conveying. This one is based off the poem, whereas the other one is more focused only on the art aspect. This combines both a message and the art.

I feel this was very well done, though the "fist" could use a little more work - the hand looks hooked and not like a full hand. Other than that, I really like the colors chosen and overall concept of the design.

$4, fo' sho'

I love the back, it's a nice touch to such a strong design. $5 all the way.

I love this

I love it. Great job capturing the look of Soviet propoganda minus heavy-handed-ness.

i like the little design on the back...in this case it is very fitting and adds another level to the concept...instead of just extra decoration, as it can sometimes be
