For some reason, morbid situations are almost always gratifying.

Watch this

lol good stuff!


This is a really hilarious design, but if I wasn't so lazy, I'd scan in this exact picture from one of my Calvin and Hobbes books. Did you just simply cut and paste this image from the book?


love, love, love -exactly like the snowmen calvin makes in watterson's books- would buy

Yeah, nothing too original here. The idea probably came more from Gary Larson (The Far Side), who popularized the comic morbidity with bugs, deer, and, yes, even snowmen. No, I didn't trace a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon. Most times that you create something, you're unaware of your influences.

Keep in mind that as much this website is bursting the brand thing, tee shirts are not fine art. They're commercial art, which means if no one would want to buy a design, it won't get printed. I haven't been a member of this website for too long, but I must say that this site is just as enamored with referential humor as the rest of pop culture is.

It's frustrating to try to find out the tastes of an entirely esoteric community that's obsessed with "clever," "original," or "random" designs, especially when the truly original stuff is lambasted for not having an inate nudge-nudge joke or a Delorean slapped on it.

My first designs submitted were all hand-drawn, all intentionally uninfluenced by referential pop culture (except for an octopus, which is part of this community's faux pas list) , and all very blandly received. Only one design lasted more than a day, and the feedback I got wasn't really on style or artsmanship, but that there were no "jokes" in the designs.

Sufficed to say, the designers on this site walk a thin line between originality and obscurity, and I'll keep on with the trial-and-error technique until I can start putting out stuff that people would want to buy enough to vote for it. This site is a good thing, and it's good practice for me.



i would wear it.


i love it on the olive color.


on the blue, as long as it isnt a bright blue (think cstrangers with candy), i hate that color.
