I created this design a while ago, but I believe its technique and aesthetic are applicable as a new trend for 2k10. If not with Threadless, then at least, with me.



I think that new trends will encompass old techniques, and will experiment and mash them up in new ways. In this design, I wanted to mix strong, graphic elements with organic linework and painterly effects. Limited color palettes that serve to accent a design rather than dominate it. And I hope that Threadless will continue to print imagery that incites intrigue without any particular meaning.

This design is amazing. I love the subtle contrast between the slate and the black and the very bold neon like colors inside her head. As a t-shirt, this design is very appealing to the eye (my kind of tee) and you can bet that I will purchase this when it is printed. In short, I think that the art displayed here is superb.

great work, looks awesome on the tee!
BUT this is a little too dark/depressive for me AND too similar to xiv's latest subs (e.g. Diver No 12)...
i'm giving you a 5 anyway because the compostition and execution are superb. did you do this before xiv's subs went up?

Pretty sure this was done way before mine... and the only similarity is the sliced colored rings part. That has been done a bunch of times before mine also.

It reminds me of the scariest Asian horror films, but I don't care. It's a very powerful design. I love the placement, too!
