"For death begins at life's first breath, and life begins at touch of death."

I forget where the quote is from :/ I wanted to make something about life that carries on, always in new forms. I don't think this piece will do very well, but it was one of those things that just had to be made.

thanks for looking :)

No to the cross in the rock below, but yes to everything else in this wonderfully detailed and hypnotic visual overload! I love how happy yet eerie the whole piece is, very "Black Hole Sun" of you. Looks awesome on the shirt too.

this is so randyotter in my opinion ;-)

thanks :D

badbasilisk - that's a mega compliment :D I love randy's stuff!

FA - I battled with the cross, but I needed it in the end to indicate that the thing is a grave. I wasn't sure it would entirely work as a tombstone if I had left it a mere rock... I experimented with various large crosses/ tombstones/ things and in the end settled on this reasonably slight indication. I just thought without it the skeleton hand coming out of the ground would make a little less sense.

thanks for the comment though :)

These colours look so nice together! I think it would also work well on blue, since you are usually cutting out a good chunk of customers by printing something on pink. I'm honestly not sure if the title really fits the design, and things with smiley faces on them are overdone, but other than that i think this is a cute design with great placement!

celandinestern profile pic Artist

hahaha true, it is all very smiley :D And I was thinking that about pink, and then thought heck, since the design really works on just about any light color, I'll just stick it on pink for show. thanks for the detailed comment, Liz :) It feels nice to be substantially commented on.


This is great - love the design.

thanks :) I guess the cross was always going to be down to personal preferences... I was on the borderline between yes cross and no cross, but I have to say I'm liking it there kinda.
