peace & hate from the piano

Your color options are great. And I love the perspective of the piano.



I think the 'peace & hate' text looks overworked. You know how, in design, it's best to have only a couple different fonts so it keeps a nice streamline, clean look? Same goes with the effects of the text. Here you have a black filled, black outlined with no fill, and blue filled with a black outline. I think it's too much.



I'm also not a huge fan on the birds/tree/gun combination....but it's not terribly bad with this layout. Overall, not bad.

im so glad the pianist is rather large on the shirt and its located near the bottom, now i can go up to all those girls that have ditched me in high school and say, hey, check out my big pianist!

interesting use of type. Definitely added some texture. :) $5!

I'm a sucker for any music shirt.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the pianist. I wish she had a bit more character. Otherwise, great.

this is awesome. $5

thanks guys :D yea the outline bothers me too now. i originally designed it on white so you couldn't see the blue type at alll, so the stroke was necissary. now its not though since i put it on darker backgrounds!

cthetiger@mac.com

i really like the use of text. nice job.

LBoy

this has also got to be one of the winners, if not of the comp they have to print it.

if this doesnt win the competetion, please resubmit it as a regular shirt. I adore it. tan and black.

nathanlanewins

I LOVE this shirt. So much, so very very much! I prefer the blue and black, but that's not to say I don't like the tan and black combination.

Do you think this design could be put onto a sage shirt? If not, I'd still buy this IMMEDIATELY, but I think it would be pretty cool.

nice illustration, especially the bird with type on it!! wonderful!

your style rocks 5$

snorkelkyss

What a cliché.

HollyT

I actually really like it with the yellow rather than the blue, i guess they contrast more, it works with the font, it looks good. Its disorganised, but in a flowing way
Maybe i just like it because i'm an untidy person :)

thanks guys!! nathan- yes it could be put on a sage shirt :D fwuzzle- wow thank you! i dont know how i would resubmit it to the regular competition because i'd have to have some other text in place of that, any ideas?

Oh.
Wow.
I really hope this becomes a print.
I know it will sell out fast.
I definitely will be the first to buy it.
