Operation might be more recognisable with other, filled, holes?

TV needs stronger colors on the outside.

Maybe reverse it, so the upside-right tv is on the opposite end? White and yellow as the outermost colors seems really wishy-washy.

Maybe also tweak the colors. I don't know if accuracy is as desirable as "looking cool".

Also: you are very prolific.

The operation one is sooo good. That's what I came here to say. That is all.

OZperation is brilliant both the idea and the title

like both concepts. i think the clouds on the rainbow one should be bigger tvs with the static on the screen.

the reference to operation is definitely there, but looking at it with a blindeye im not sure its strong enough of a connection. can u do a version with like tweezers and a white heart to see if maybe it can push it further?

Operation Needed was pulled at some point, and you have a couple of the same pieces. The tweezers might be pushing it. I think if you had all Oz pieces like Toto, the oilcan, you'd be OK.

That said I've seen a couple of similar Operation parody shirts.. one by Captain Ribman with the Black Knight from Monty Python; and one with Voldemort and the pieces were Horcruxes. Tin Man with the heart has a stronger link to the game though the idea isn't that fresh to me.

very helpful feedback - thank you. I think I can cook up some more Oz-related pieces. I suppose if threadless rejects it on that account I could take it elsewhere.

Just an Operation parody isn't new, I agree - nor is anything tinman/heart related. My feeling is the combination's originality warrants an effort, and I think sales will back it up

looking great so far

are you going to keep this black and white?

The board for operation is yellow, the wizard of OZ has a yellow brick road

Just saying

bscott01

much stronger reference with the little pieces

HahahAaa amazing. Too good

Video poker was always more interesting to me, but overall I was just amazed by how fancy some games were

I don't ever gamble normally. I can only do Vegas for a couple of days. I wonder around foolishly waiting for a "feeling" from one of the machines.

Anyway, back to your tee. What about making the nose a glowing emerald green instead?

ahh i thought it was a crucifix lol

Resonator

Version A,

I kinda want to see all the names on the yellow background like in the actual game. I think it would really finish it off.

Maybe add a thin border to enclose the space instead of using the wire.

Also, instead of having a almost ball like chain for the tweezers, I think it might look better to have a wire like in the game, Having the wire break the the square layout might also make the design more dynamic and interesting.

Good work so far though! Keep it up!
