Whimsical Ninja

I've got a number of ideas kicking about my head lately that I've been planning to take the time and really do justice to, but while talking to some friends about the Joy of Text contest, I thought I'd put up an old design, just for fun. I hold no illusions that this will perform as well as some truly great entries I've seen up, but I figured, no harm in seeing how it fares.



A 4-color ninja made of words. I chose the word whimsical because of his kinda cute nature, because the word cute wouldn't fit across his forehead, and because I like the word whimsical. I thank you for any honest feedback, but will settle for dishonest $5-s as well.

I have a friend that would love this shirt. I like the eyes and the use of red in the "L". And I like the word Whimsical too.

AdderXYU

Not gonna lie, just being up for scoring still is exciting to me. Thanks for the love so far!

My question is why it's yielding "your" katana blade. 'Tis a neat design though - I like the red L for a splash of colour.

How badly does it have to score to be pulled early? e_e

AdderXYU
  1. it is a homage to the ninja, so it's like someone looking up at a balcony saying "beautiful woman, with your hair as gold as the sun". Only it's a ninja.

  2. it would need to score pretty consistently bad, i think. But I don't want to find out for sure!
eHalcyon

Ahh, gotcha. I was reading it strangely in my head.

This is very sweet, and as has been mentioned before, the little eyes are what make it especially clever.

Clever, hope to see more!

AdderXYU

^^there will be more eventually. I'm trying to measure what I can -do- with what i can -think-... once that's all rectified, I hope to have new content up and running

Thanks everyone for the comments so far!

I didn't notice that the words actually form a ninja at first, but that aspect definitely puts this design at the top for me.

Why the "your"? Why not a "his" or "a"?

A tad bigger methinks, but overall a really convincing image made off of a somewhat complex set of words to make such a cohesive piece!

AdderXYU

^^Bigger is certainly cool by me. If by some chance this ever printed, threadless could do whatever it wished with it

Day zero! I'm all anxious for the score. Thanks to everyone who's voted!

Proper clever... by the way are you the real Duke of Edinburgh??!!??!

AdderXYU

I can confidently say I am not.

Thanks for the support guys... not a great score, but worth it to get a feel for where things stand. I'm just glad to be able to last a whole week off it. Hope to bring my A-game with a proper submission or two some time soon.

eHalcyon

I think this was underscored.

No account?
