It’s true, some girls love bad boys. Just look at this rendering of Loki. What’s not to love about this mischievous supervillain? Everything about this design is perfect. I’m speechless! This shirt leaves me in awe. I love the color choices. I love the composition. I could almost kiss Loki’s face (sorry Thor!). Medusa, I would love to see your process!

Hadouken. Shoryuken. Tatsumaki. These are some of the moves you will learn at this Shoto academy! I really enjoy the warm color palette on the navy blue shirt. By substituting the whites for a light cream color it keeps with the same family of colors and the overall design appears warm. The arrows create a nice texture for the circular frame and illustrate the move inputs. The gradation along with the bold light lines convey the motion of the dynamic upward moving fist. All in all, this shirt scores a total KO!

05/22/14 Top Pick; The Sleeping Rose
One of my all time favorite Disney movies! Yes, I already bought my ticket to go watch Maleficent on opening weekend!! Wonderful romantic design. Aurora aka Briar Rose, is lovingly placed on a soft pillow as she slumbers. The many delicate folds of her covers are soft and decorated with roses. Her frame is wonderfully detailed. It shows the balance between the evil bright poisonous green enchantment and her good pink blossoming roses. My favorite part is the bright glowing green, pink, and blue spots in the center. They nicely represent her loving Fairy Godmothers Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather.
Thank You Nados

“They’re all gonna laugh at you!” This image is just as incredibly shocking as the events of the movie Carrie. This might be the first shirt I’ve ever seen that actually scares me! The design really captures the anger, fear, and pure horror of the moment. The red pools and drips wonderfully delineate the negative space creating the figure of a scorned girl. The artist did a wonderful job of giving the design just the right amount of information to create the image. The contrast of the bright white teeth and bright blue eyes help reveal her facial expression of pure anger and fury. I absolute love her delicate hands that seem to writhe in pain and direct her power.

05/07/2014 Top 3 Pick; Cthulu Class 5 vs. Little Hero
Classic good vs. evil. What an amazingly complex image. The gigantic, Lovecraftian Cthulhu made up of dark negative space with bright gleaming eyes towers over this cityscape made up of thin, long strokes. While the little hero in the bright positive space jets up in the center ready to defeat the monster. I love the texture created by the slanted sketch hatching to show the destruction. It nicely contrasts with the soft billowy look of the clouds above.
Thank You Karmazero

Game over for this little floating spirit. The other little neon buddies, Blinky, Inky and Clyde, hover nearby to lay a dead Pinky to rest. The Little Ecto Trap serves as a nice little open casket. Nice clean lines and solid colors. I enjoy the little expressions on their faces. Each spirit portrays a different emotion: shock, sadness, and reflective. Who knew these little guys could be so expressive? The angles, perspective, and slanted lines on the Etco Trap make the design dynamic.
