Greased Lightning - New idea



A rough of the design. Would you wear it?

I mean, I don't normally wear designs on white tees (I am too pale; it ends up looking like a chest tattoo). Would you offer other color options? I mean, it might not immediately read "grease" in another color, but WHO KNOWS you knows?

Wes! I agree that red would look super rad. This is awesome. Minimalism challenge?

What kind of red do you guys like? I'll definitely put it in as an option

White's my favorite, but I'll add a red version too.

Looks great, reminds me of that oil spill relief tee that Ross made. Sub it to minimalism!

Thanks! But it's not minimalism?

Are you going to color it in? RIght now I can tell theres line marks all over the place. Just needs to be filled in. Looks great on the bold bright red! Maybe add a highlight? This will look more greasy/oily. Good job!

It is too minimalism by Threadless standards.

I'm drawing over this, this is just a sketch that I've developed a little bit more. I'm gonna play around with adding some shiny stuff to it, and I think I'm gonna get rid of some of the blob stuff. I think there's a little too much in there.

have you considered having the grease drip down so it's more natural? or are you trying to imply speed?

Not sure I get it but I like it =)

Manupix, maybe it's not a super popular expression? If something goes "like greased lightning", it's fast. Were you not picking that up, or did you want it to mean something more?

I think it could be pretty rad, but it would be awesome if it protrayed more speed. Like a grease streak, or something. And the lightning looks a little—sad, or soggy, to me? Maybe some more bold straight lines? I dunno. I know nothing.
