I could just make you a t-shirt? Got $30?

I really like the overall design of it, and the little plus/minus thing at the bottom, but i'm not completely sold on the lettering, everything else seems so top-notch the lettering feels kind-of amateurish, in comparison i mean

Interesting. I'm not really sure if I see what you do in the lettering, but I'd love to hear some more opinions of it!

meh looking at it again i'm not even sure what i was talking about, i tend to spew bullshit from time to time. But looking back again at your shirt designs, i would maybe consider something a little more visually eclectic, maybe a name that represented that a little better to. All of your designs are very vibrant and a little goofy (in a good way) you should have a name and a card that reflects that


Look at my art!

That would be ideal, but I want people to know I can do the boring stuff too, ya know?

Thanks for the kind words, Lundsfryd!

I just got my business cards in today and they look fantastic!!! Here's the front and back view of the cards together. Oh, and here's some high res, kid.

I highly suggest business cards, kids. They just make you feel...legit!

So this project has a bunch of illustration in it and that made me incredibly nervous. I think all the seperate parts came out fine, but I'm not sure about how it works as a whole.

What do you guys think? Look at this bigger version for more detail.

Haven't seen you in awhile, you working at AIR yet? The back of your buisness card is super tight, i really like how it turned out.

Your poster design however, i feel has to much empty space around the middle, it makes it seem divided. Make the poster a little shorter or find add something so that empty space isn't there

sorry about that last post. I was incredibly tired. Yeah, I think there's something I wanna add. There's a snow pattern I made with the ornaments at the corners that i think will look really good all layered up and grunged up

isn't that proving my point? I didn't even notice the snowflake design in the corners until you mentioned it. You should try and make them stand out more, make them bigger or a bolder color

I'm at AIR tomorrow from 10-4 if anyone cares.

I made a logo (and name) for a band I might be joining. I always like to show off all my skills to bands when I'm trying out!

PLEASE CRITIQUE ME!

Seriously, if you wanna be mean, do it!

sorry about the double post, but I just realized I wanted to ask something else. Are you a volunteer at the place where you work?

Can do homey, and I'm basically a paid volunteer, they call us interns ha ha. We just help out any way we can with the classes, and have to go to meetings and such. It doesn't pay anything though, so it's practically volunteer work

I just snagged a Bamboo Fun off of eBay for cheap, so expect to see some art from it pretty soon (depending upon how long UPS decides they'd like to hold on to it for me).

Hey guys, I'm trying to get opinions on a shirt design I'm planning on submitting to a competition and I could really use some critique. I've posted about it in a few places and it would be awesome if you guys could click on the links and comment!

Not the biggest fan of the dagger design, it's a little too plain for my taster.

You going to Youth Invasion? I'm going to have two huge pieces in it

I've never heard of this. PM me about it. Did you check out the other versions of the design?

Remember when I said I got a tablet? Well, here's the first thing post-worthy I've done with it. It's a flyer to my new band's (Presea) FIRST SHOW!

PS

If you live in the Pittsburgh area and would like to go to this, just print out this flyer, then hit me up somewhere (even outside the show itself) and I'll sign it, getting you in for just $5!
