The Taking Tree

This is my take on the Shel Silverstein classic. There is only so much a tree can give before it has to take something in return.

looks a little too much like the last page of the giving tree. a little too muh like copyright infringement.

coxiesara

Amazing, but I love the real book too much. Sorry.

helo

The t-shirts appear to be without the text, but
the larger image has it. My preference is without.

I can't tell if the man's expression is due to him
just thinking about things or if he has a suspicion
the tree is about to do something to him.

If there was text, I would want it to be the sound
effect "click" that comes from the root pulling the
hammer on the gun. This would give the man
a reason for being so wide eyed. It would also mean
you would have to add another root to act as a
"thumb" on the hammer.

funny funny concept if the man had something
to do with the tree being cut down. I haven't
read the book related to this submission.

The book sucks because its about giving without getting anything in return. If people were like this then the world would be split between givers and takers, but we each have to be a giver and a taker sometimes in our lives. So in short I hate the book but love this shirt!
PLEASE PRINT IT

mahlitzkey

this is so funny
but i def. agree with helo about the whole "click" idea.
$4

its funny, i likeed the book and it kinda gives a little forshadowing haha

unicornfluff

This is absolutely great. The best design I've seen in a long time. For those who have read the book, I think this really speaks how we wish things had ended up. Excellent and clever. $5

McCowen

_pixelchick_

ugh, this is terrible.. go sell it to hot topic or something...

turtledoves

that poor tree. i don't think you should add "click" or change it in any way. 5

onemoredaemon

the click thing would be nice.
also i guess, the picture would work better in black as in green.

jess.eeeka

nooooooooo! you can't do that to the tree!

mand10ftpole

this disign is awesome! i have allways hated this book but enjoyed his others. you dont need to dislike the book to like this shirt. (although I think the old man should die!) quit being babies its not sad!!!! and no click, leave it how it is.

mmhmm

i love the book. but this shirt doesn't cut it. i don't like it. the tree would never do that to the boy.

noparticularplan

Wow! I did not realize that people would be so offended by this. I am a huge fan of Shel Silverstein. I made this shirt as a joke. Sorry for having a sense of humor.

cyrostir

I HATE THAT BOOK

nslesinger

look, I love the giving tree and all it tells.
but the message is my favorite. and I love that book. For real. I cry every time I read it, and I don't cry for anything else. at all. which is kind of wacky.

so I wont vote on it cuz that's not fair

painter

love this shirt! hope it is without text.
i prefer trees to people
$5

Pookieaceves

I LOVE IT! But id love it even more if it wasnt shooting the old man. Oh how sad!

dharju

Finally!!!
that selfish old bastard gets what he deserved..
the tree gave away its apples,... and.. its leaves... and its bra..branches ...and..bwaaaa ha ha :(

toeeey

haha, nice

Klayr

;_;

firefairy

no no no! poor little man! I don't know the book, but i feel sad for him. To me, without any knowledge of the book, it just looks like a little old man getting shot.

firefairy

But really like the simple line drawing style. That is very good. Yes.

dezartroze

i love this shirt with a passion

CRAMitYOU

I really dont like your take on the Shel Silverstein classic at all.
Its not offensive its just tacky AND if you claim to be a fan - it totally misses the point that the tree was giving even to its end. ugh.

xopher.tm

chris stop her has never heard of altruism...

put a bunch of dead emo kids on it & you'll make a fortune.

yawn

May2

Ouch...too sad and realistic

wooshxD

give me it . do you think you can do other colors ?

amberjade

depressing.
...&5$

mytoso

i personally like it better with the text, i'm assuming thats an excerpt from the book. i think it would look better on a darker grey, or have the picture in a colour other than green.
$5- good childhood memories, mixed with more realistic perceptions of reality

Superdude

Wow this is either a 5 or a 0... man that tree gave him everything! gosh. shudders 5's across the board, I guess, but I would never buy the thing. Poor fellow... damn that apple tree! shakes head I agree about no text, that fucking shrub speaks for itself. You got the style perfect.

linac

;_; the story makes me cry too... i like it with text

holdmyhandtowalk

i just read the book to the kids i babysit. i love it!
