You can't use this illustration! it's a total rip-off of Desperate Housewives tv credits. This is clearly a breach of copyright! I can't believe it got passed by threadless!!! Get some respect and withdraw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Big Fat ZERO!

I reeeeeally hope that's a joke, jock. Otherwise that is the dumbest thing I have EVER seen.

I think you could have made them even more pshychodelic, but great idea! very cool!

jock05tees, holy crap!
is that really where you know this painting from?
im sorry for you.
i didnt state it in the comments, but this is based of one of the most famous paintings ever made by an american artist, grant wood. it is called 'american gothic' hence, the title 'american psychedelic'
im pretty sure'deperate housewives' will be ok with this.

some one needs to take art history

Print should be bigger on the shirt.

jock05tees

Hi there everyone! Well it got you lookin'! The reason I was angry is that I did something similar, ie use someone else's artwork, then adapted it (to pay it homage), but I got totally slated for it - probably deservedly so! So what's good for the goose.... Also, I do recognise the original is a famous American painting - in my book and I'm sure other people's,to copy that is just as bad! Speedy, for you info, I did do art history! You have to remember tho', everyone isn't American!!!

jock05tees: I knew there was something wrong with you- you aren't American. Im sorry for your disability. Do you need some help? Hopefully someday we can build a handicap ramp to wheel you all the way to this great country.

Tom: Great work, 5$

Everyone else: Seriously, your countries are cool too...I mean it...not joking...at all...in the least...you know I love...well..somewhere that isn't the United States of America.

Dear Tom...I am on my way to your house to steal your computer. Be sure to have your dog locked up in the kitchen...or clip his nails. Dear Jock- Don't compare what you did (an exact replica of someone elses art) to what Tom here has done (a stylized twist on someone else's art). He was inspired. You were lazy.

jock05tees

Mezo - You're blurring the issue methinks!

jock05tees

Please don't get me wrong, I think Tom is v.talented, it's just a shame, and I stand by my previous comments.

as an artist i have seen this design manipulated in so man ways and in no way is this original... sorry 1

cherrycherrynu

I think a lot more could have been done to make it look phychedelic, also green should be an accent color, it would be trippier on yellow or orange. Also its still a little too rigid, really let go and make it organic.

haha at you nitpicking goobs
