fat people aren't nice to look at in real life. why would you want that on your shirt?
no offense if you're fat


Very orignal. I love the color scheme and character design.

I love the ringmaster, but don't really care for the rest of the shirt, or specifically the large woman, cause I agree with twenty7th, no offense to those of large size

love $5


I am giving this a 5$ not only because the design is excellent, but also because of the dumbasses who are whining about the fat lady. It's a freakin CIRCUS, kids! Get some culture!


Very Much

thanks everyone! I am glad you like it, and not that I need to defend Large Lulu since she is a circus freak, but having taken many many life drawing courses, people with interesting shapes (not necessarily just fat) are much more fun to draw, they have something to them. If I wanted to draw a person that you might see in a fashion magazine all I have to do is draw a skeleton and wrap some skin on it. People should be unique and when they are, they are a lot more beautiful.


Awesome! 5$


i love it! AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME. your style is captivating and large lulu is adorable. 5$

Simon Cowell

This is outstanding. You're going to Hollywood!!!!!!!!


This is fabulous illustration - great composition, love the colors, and absolutely takes me back to those old circus posters. Ringmaster is a little weird (what is he, an ant?), but this is just charming. $5

Smitty McGillicutty

the ring master is just a character that I came up with after watching a LOT of Tim Burton.

excellent composition smitty - always a pleasure -


Fuckin rules.


One of my favorites, $5


Fantastic job! Love the fat lady...5




I think most fat girls would find this design offensive- fat makes you the freak at the circus? In the USA fat makes you normal. I have some fat friends and family this would hurt their feelings. Some cliches need to die.


...I had a teacher named Lulu who looked like that. This is creepy. The coincidence I mean- the shirt looks great.


the art is great - and i don't mind "large lulu" - but i think some people may be offended by Fat="Freak"

i know the history of circus freaks - and the term "freak" is ok in that historical sense

i just kinda wish she was the "large bearded lady" instead of simply "fat"
if there was some height reference (or a name change) to indicate she was a "giant" (which is what i think you were going for) and not [i]just[/i] "fat"

Smitty McGillicutty

well to be honest, her title is LARGE Lulu. She is much taller than he is, not to metion, I am overweight. I am not morbidly obese, but I have a few extra pounds I am trying to get rid of. This is not supposed to be offensive. Like I said before I like drawing people who aren't stick thin, and I thought about the Bearded Lady that happens to be kinda burly, but I thought it was to much for the piece. Pint-Sized Paul and Large Lulu are supposed to be exact opposites...if I added the Beard in there I would nave to make him Pint-Sized Hairless Paul. Anyway, to recap, I am fat, Lulu is still drop dead gorgeous even though she is a plus size woman, and the name is LARGE not fat.

Smitty McGillicutty

PS - perhaps you are taking the term "freak" to literally. Read it straight through "Goodlove's Amazing Freaks"...maybe I am trying to imply something about relationships and love?


beautiful :D

holly golightly

it kinda reminds me of the illustrations from mika's cd...kinda


I don't like the ringmaster at all, but I Love love love the color of the shirt and the design, I like leaving the fat woman as Large lulu. I would wear this right now.


this is hot!


I love how people are making the offensive "fat people are ugly" insult and then adding "...but no offense." eyeroll

Smitty, your talent and composition are fantastic. I love your use of the halftones, too. I want more! More, I say!

Smitty McGillicutty

vixvish - ask and you shall receive. I am cooking up some more stuff right now...I just wish something would actually get printed.
