Ghost on the machine

Hi, this is my sub for the Hot Chip glow ink contest. I wanted the use of the glow ink to have a point, and not just be used for the sake of using it. Here, the glow effect takes this nice design of a copy machine on a t-shirt and gives it a whole new meaning once the lights go down. I decided to do this design on a light colored shirt, to make the glow aspect a nice hidden surprise. As for the ghost, I wanted him to look Casper-esque, bubbly and cute. I also thought giving him legs (and little ghost pants) was a nice touch and made the idea stronger. Hope you enjoy it. I think it turned out pretty well.



Design notes:

-6 colors, including glow ink.

-Cool halftone

-Shown here on light gray, but it would look great on any light colored shirt: white, cream, light blue, mint, yellow.

-Glow ink, although transparent, would appear very, very faint on the shirt when not in a dark room.

Hey, thanks for the great comments so far. I really appreciate the support.

J-Ray

DUDE! Before the glow in the dark showed up I thought.. man this is boring. Then the ghost appears and BAM! Great idea.

The fact that you'll see a small tint of the ghost in the light is great.

LOVE it $5

I like your idea, but that glow ink would show up during the day, lessoning the dramatic impact. I also believe that it would cover up the parts of the copier that it is covering. Not sure, but I know it doesn't just magically appear. IT would still be seen. That being said, I still think it's pretty funny.
