It's a collage of antique engravings, mostly tools and machinery. It has really great detail up close and it's a saw-whet owl for anyone who is interested. it works with any light color and can be inverted to work on dark colors.

sarELITE

Ross Mc.

cityauctor

Woooah the zoom changes my score. Find a way to zoom on this page or your score is going to suffer! $5!

yeah... it's my first submission so the submission page threw me for a loop...

Hopefully people won't be lazy and will check out the zoomed in version. This reminds me of something that would on imaginaryfoundation.com

I really like it. I would like to see it bigger on the shirt and prehaps have a less obvious place for the mouse - why not on the lower back or something? The black and white looks hotâ„¢. I cant see me digging it inverted. Black and white owl with abstract areas of primary watercolour done in super fine halftone as a backdrop would be ill imo. 5$ anyway

great design! but i'm not a fan of the pink.

crap

bobbil

awesome design! You think this will convert to apparel well? oh f#*k it... i'd wear this in a heartbeat(on anything except pink) 5

lesquelette

Great use of collage. Yes, on different shirt color. Is there a way to see it inverted? Very nice work.

shibbyfu

i'd really really like it without the mouse/oil can...

ideaprison

this is so beautiful. i'm crossing my fingers that this get printed!

I would give it a $5 if it didn't have the mouse and the owl was centered. as it is I'll drop to 3, sorry.

sorry, i didn't understand that. are you saying you want the owl more off center?

finletter

AAAAAH awesome.
placement is so good
design is so good.
$5 for sure.

epey82

$5 This shirt is bomb. Normally pink does not float my boat but this looks great actually.

sugatank

pretty damn hot, owls are ruling lately:)

reagen

rat=oil... ahhh... I like it anyway or maybe because of that... great detail

Zostara

This is fantastic!! Really creative, awesome detail. I'd wear it !!

Gwendyyy

look who's playing too... he he

this is fun.

medicyanide

Great design, it works pretty much any way you color it-- and.... it's lovely.

This is awesome, though I fear the detail is pushing the limit of what's screenable onto a t-shirt.

I have several t-shirts that were screened by collage artist Freddie Baer. One of them has this image:

www.amazon.co.jp

...and on the shirt, though it's nonetheless a work of art, there's noticeably less detail present. (Point of reference: Hanes Beefy-T, ca. 1990. YMMV with modern tees.)

You can sorta see some Freddie Baer tees in one of the photos here (3rd across and 3 down, should be obvious though):

(If she hadn't stopped her T-Shirt of the Month Club years and years ago, I wouldn't be needing Threadless :D)

This isn't meant to rain on your parade at all. Sorry if it comes across that way......but I do think that your lovely fan lace would suffer as a result of the production process.

ajbossa

the best one so far!

mammabeesley

tres good. birds are bestest.

androidi

especially on a t-shirt I'd probably go for the dotted line to indicate where the owl is looking... or move the mouse a bit higher. the mouse gets too easily ignored as it is currently. but otherwise an awesome design, J. scored 5 from me.

snowchic33

I love the owl, but the smoke trail doesn't seem to fit at all, it ruins the shape and flight of the owl imo

Kitty_Kura

Great design! I love the detail.
