Hi


Once again I need your help.


I have benn working with Victor Calahan on my idea for the illustration of Medical Marijuana
we started by wanting to do a design that wasn't too cartoonish and this idea of medical marijuana seemed to be perfect for a more graphic illustration.


As of now we have two choice to make and we cannot seem to make up our minds on which is the best way to finish this up


VERSION 1
a doctor (medical marijuana) with the leaf forming the head and hands

.
.
.
.
.
.
VERSION 2
A doctor with a regular face ( hands made up of either leaves or roll up marijuana leaves) the hair will be either as leaves or the mash up stuff, the skin of the doctor would have teh texture of the leaves.

.
.
.
.
.
This is how we feel about it right now:
.


Version 1 is easier to read ( it send the message across, straight to the point)


Version 2 seems more wear friendly, might need a few second to be understood but it might also be something that won't make you feel to uneasy while wearing it..
.
We would love to hear your comments, opinions or ideas for improvements. Thanks

Ok pals, so here's the latest update. Still got some detail stuff to do on the character n' all but we are close from closing this one. Btw thx to Ragzy & Jordan who's ideas pointed to the vintage add/label (I luv those) idea. YET… We are still working on a good baseline for the lower banner. Sorta like "Hemp & Sons established since ???" "Doctor's Choice or recommended by doctors in 18 states", "Can & Abis Company…" And, Would it be smart to add (in tiny letters) the full list of states where medicinal m. is ok? If anyone comes up with a great baseline/slogan he'll get a free shirt!! ( as long as this 1. : goes through and is accepted and 2. : it gets printed! :P ) Ragzy n' Jordan, are in for a free one as well



Also, my other WIP for Clowns have big shoes to fill

I really like the first version, it communicates the idea a lot more clearly.

back to square one LOL

i like first version , but what if more simple, only marijuana leaves with eyes and stethoscope I think it can represent a doctor :D

v_calahan
v_calahan profile pic Alumni

mmm… I'm not against that, could do, but would threadless go with that, not that the message would be very different?… V1 : 1,5 - V2 :1

I also like the first version but I don't know if I would, personally speaking, wear an obvious pot leaf on my chest. That said, I think the character looks really cool. I might make him holding a joint instead of having a thumbs up if I were to push the concept further.

Ahahha V 1!!

samalope

you are right .. may be unclear, because it does not use regular doctor clothes, so there is the possibility doubt a good or bad doctr, but interesting :D :D

That's what I am worry about, The point is not only to make something cool but actually something cool That people WILL Wear, not to mention something Threadless would actually print.

i think the 2nd would work best.

and title it Dr. O (pot heads will get it)

v_calahan
v_calahan profile pic Alumni

Yep, true enough, every subject related to pot is touchy, we could do Dr. Ginger or Dr. Garlic then? ;P

v_calahan
v_calahan profile pic Alumni

Agreed that the human leaf textured face would be an easier sell… Maybe the leaf hands would also be redundant, just regular hands with same texture than the face? I like the idea of him holding a (medical) spliff, would look better but again maybe too ambiguous?

parallelish

i feel like medical marijuana is topical and in the news enough nowadays for it to be not so touchy of a subject.

and besides who cares, design whatever you guys wanna design.

that being said, i feel like the chances of something like this printing here aren't very high, but... FUCK IT 8)

v_calahan

We'll sell it to High Times then…

Yeah, I prefer version one but I don't know if they would print something with a huge pot leaf on it. I think in the submission terms they say "no drugs". But they printed my design with a few discreet pot leafs on it. Who knows?

Yeah, I wish the Threadstaff would give me some opinions

Let's do something about herbal tea then!

Version one. I dont think Threadless would go for this but for sure someone else would.

That little bud coming out of the leaf anomalie is just too cool!

Version 1 is better.

And just go for it here. Weed is now legal in Washington and Colorado, and is pretty casual (so I hear) in California. Sometimes edgy, topical stuff is just what's needed. good luck.

soloyo
soloyo profile pic Alumni

Fuck, let's sub both versions, Threadless can decide which one to print.

AlanBao

I prefer #1. Go for it either way, worst that can happen is it doesn't get printed - and even then you could do a run at shirt-a-day sites like Qwertee and stuff.

StevenLefcourt

also, I dont even like how version 2 looks...version 1 is appealing and id wear it

V1 for sure. If you're going to go with a concept better to go all the way than water the idea down

ragzy

I was hoping the shirt was going to be an old school advertisement like a snake oil cure-all elixer traveling salesman

Jordan_Bender
Jordan_Bender profile pic Alumni

LOL or a vintage "All doctors recommend marijuana" like those old cigarette ads... but better.
