06/23/14 Top Pick; Gamma Rays

star Concept – Interesting design which visually portrays the smaller Bruce figure trapped within the larger Hulk figure.

star Color – I really enjoy the limited amount of color use to portray the infamous Hulk. The negative space figure within needs no introduction.

star Lines and Forms – The long thin refracted hazy lines are a great way of visually showing the rays. They nicely delineate the Incredible Hulk.

06/23/13 Top Pick; Watch the World Burn

star Composition – Wonderful compositions on the front and back of the shirt! The front has a great sense of dimension. Joker seem to pop out of the background. The back of the shirt in beautifully intricate and balanced and nicely relates to the front of the shirt.

star Lines and Forms – Wonderful amount of line work. Delicate and complex, the devil is in the details ;). Joker’s long grin is jaw dropping.

star Typography – If I didn’t follow this awesome artist of Facebook, I wouldn’t have seen her hand drawn sketches. Her letter forms look this good in her sketches!

05/29/14 Top Pick; Back to the Firehouse

starColor Scheme –  I really enjoy the combination of the warm orange-brown with the cool gray-blue. The colors work together nicely and offer the contrast of both warmth and cool. I also really enjoy the yellow glow of the Ecto Trap.

starTexture – Wonderful stippling texture of the background and foreground ecto glow. The nice deep wrinkles in the jumpsuits are descriptive and also add wonderful texture.

starComposition – I really enjoy the angle in which the scene is set. It keeps the design dynamic and also nicely showcases the Ecto-1 vehicle and the three men.

starExecution – Nicely resembles the Back to the Future poster. All three men are easily recognizable as Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis.

03/15/14 Top 3 Pick; Balloon Clown

Creepy, simply eerie design. I can hear IT’s laughter. Reader- if your name is George, please BUY THIS SHIRT! I love movies, especially the horror genre and I am most definitely afraid of clowns!  This ominous shirt comes in 3 different color options, gray, blue and purple. Since the design is simple, composed mostly in black, I prefer the gray shirt option. The details are more visible because of the contrast of a lighter shirt. The minimal use of color creates a nice highlight to the black and white figure. The bright pink leads the eye upward to the balloon. Along with the placement of the design lower on the shirt, the balloon appears to float up.

Thank You hillarywhiterabbit

This Snow Queen is embracing her magic abilities and loving it . The artist wonderfully expresses her emotion with a type heavy design. By keeping the figure faceless, the importance is given to the typography.The style of type selected, the thick to thin ratio, size difference of words, curling and winding make it playful. The bright colors work well together and convey the disney theme. I enjoy how filling the negative space with different size snow flakes conveys visual energy and excitement.  There are 3 color options available black, purple and blue. The blue is outstanding, preventing the starkness of a black background, but still dark enough for contrast of the happy colors.

Clean,  graceful, well balanced, and beautiful design. Each element, while simple, contains excitement by using textures. Nature creates a delicate texture front and center displaying importance. The color selection of light blue on dark blue looks ghostly and light.  The red is bold and in contrast gives the design a hint of seriousness. This design is nicely comprised of well formed shapes work harmoniously using positive and negative space.
