what about a moon so big it goes off the edge of the t-shirt and without fill colour? a rounder head would be nice too

the construction of the flame is great. i wonder if you could use finer black lines . you obviously wouldn't want to draw this again, but if you did, you could trace it with the pen tool on the computer and use diamonds to make some of the smaller shapes. also, i think there should be a trail coming from the lit stick to the main ball of flame as this would help with the perspective. i also think the figure should be lighter, crisper and with finer lines. apart from that it's perfect!

i love understated shirts. this would print really well. think he needs a new face though, no areas of solid colour

i draw arrows. i've been told that arrow doodles point to a person with an aggressive personality, but i've also been told it means they are looking for direction. personally don't think either is true.
i've expanded designs from the recycling logo, which fracture and leave trails much like the ones in this design. arrows are an interesting graphic tool, they are so pure in their symbolism, shouting out "look over there!"
i've had some trouble using the designs i've made into successful t-shirt. i would put some on the site but i doubt they'd be well received. i find i get most of my interesting results from arrows that curve on a 2d platform, like recycling arrows.
sorry, this i just a rant about myself.
i'm very interested in anyone using arrows. over the years i've found myself building up a criteria of what is and isn't successful in the use of the arrow. i think the strips that constitute the arrow are the most important and that it helps to start with those before putting in the pointy bit, it helps to convey the overall form. it will also help with accuracy. it looks like this wasn't designed with a vector program or if it was, you didn't use guidelines as some of the strip segments don't line up. i think it needs to look perfect. this might be a bit ambitious and maybe you don't care enough, but i'm obsessive.
i'm a little drunk and i could see myself going on for hours, but i'll spare you the lecture. interesting. still haven't decided on a score. but i'm not really into the sentimental quasi religious notion of trusting the irrational.
how about if there was a figure pulling out a heart and the victim running down the road trying to get it back?

is this a cynical comment about relationships after you've been in love. i love recycling arrows, they can do so many things
