nothing wrong with geeks...
i can dig it
i like the idea of the nintendo controller in a jar filled with formaldehyde (which i don't think this really is. almost though) but not the label proclaiming my first. i'm sure the nintendo was only the first for a certain group of geeks, myself not being one of those, so i wouldn't wear the shirt. you gotta cater to a broader crowd, like geeks who like old school nintendo, myself being one of those. i think filling the jar with formaldehyde would bring a bit more color into the shirt and give it a bit more of a cool science lab "behold the ancient nintendo controller" exibit type feel.
very cool $5 print this.
nice colors and illo, great rendering of the jar and reflections/highlights.
Ill take 5, please.
the original nintendo entertainment system... i played tiny tune adventures and double dragon for hours.
I love the way the jar is drawn; it really looks like glass. As someone said though, you should remove "my first experience" because it isn't necesseraly true for everyone.
i dont get y its in a jar and the 'know your roots' pick is far better
GEEKS OWN! woop woop woop. downloads super mario emulator
i agree with sk8 dork
This reminds of a participatory piece of art at MassMoCA in which 14 people had collected memories in jars like these... about 500 of them, and visitors were then asked to arrange the jars in whatever order they'd like.
I'm with sk8dork. I love it, though.
I prefer the term "nerd"...change it & $5, otherwise 4
I very much dig this. The Commodore 64 (okay, first a VIC 20) was my first, but the NES was close behind.
SK8DORK'S ides is also cool but I give it a $4 maybe more the other way... I don't know I'd have to see it.
AWESOME! I would buy that sh*t!
red buttons please?
$5 it was definitely my first.
$5 i'd def buy it
i don't know if by saying "my first geek experience" you meant the old joypad or the fact you've put it in a jar with a label... (-;
i love my geek
I love the real glass look...makes me want to unscrew it. : )~
red buttons would be good, but i love the idea, 5!
I love the concept and the design itself is awesome... but like others already said : lose the text. I don't even think you need a label to get the idea cause it's already in a jar!
i was just about too say it was overstated, but everyone beat me to the punch. For a few reasons - anyone our age understands this is saying "preserving our childhood" or whatever - the beauty is it can be interpreted if it is left subtle. Secondly, the whole "proud to be a geek" phenom is what gives geeks a real bad name - and I wouldn't say that love of nintendo is a geek trait. Lastly, "clever" text often wrecks an otherwise great shirt for most people, i.e. the "Hot Topic" brand Nintendo shirts that have an iconic Mario Goomba on it but says " Shroomin' " on it. The text turns me off. If you do deside to leave a label on the jar, make it much smaller, and just put a date on it like "sample 1986", but don't make it the focus of the shirt the way your tag is now.
I think in a better place would be better. Still an alright idea. Just because someone plays old video games doesn't make them a geek... =[
I'm sure this applies to every one of my suitemates and friends in the suite across the hall. You've got 12 fans on this end!
mmm, nicely done illus. the jar looks awesome
awesome, agree w/ above comments and such
geek out! le geek, c'est chic!
$5 geekness is cool!
5$, for sure.
$5 I LOVE THIS!!!! ITS LIKE YOU'VE KNOWN ME FOR YEARS!!
Everyone has a geek in 'em.
Everyone has a little geek in 'em.
love it, btw i still play super nintendo :)
Ah, nintendo NES. how i miss thee.... I agree with formaldehyde-filling the jar, but the label could be different. (and all caps letters? or type-writer font?)
ha, yeah, sorry. didn't notice they already WERE in caps letters.
i keep a jar just like that, but its filled with old teeth the toothfairy didnt take. haha. 5
I LOVE thats its in the jar
How are you going to go and not put red in this for the buttons! haha... Great drawing though. I like how the glass feels like glass too.
your awsome... i still have the first nes!
