Complimentary breakfast and second breakfast. Just don’t “chip the glasses and crack the plates, that’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!”
Composition – All the well rendered elements work nicely together creating a nice little entrance.
Lines and Forms – Sketch-like quality of the lines and shapes give this design a quaint, pub-like feel.

Concept – I really enjoy the elvish writing on the circle around this Vitruvian figure serving as a Ring. It justly shows how Gollum is eternally locked within The Ring’s hold.
Lines and Forms – Wonderful sketch-like quality to the lines and figure.

“Apes together, strong!” I LOVED this movie! Totally love Andy Serkis. Gollum and Caesar the Ape!
Composition – Bold, intense simplified image of this incredible leader. This shirt also glows in the dark!
Texture – Nice contrast between the well-shaped nooks and crannies of the positive and negative space. This creates a great rough texture. The lighter areas give the face dimension and contrast nicely with the enthralling dark eyes. Caesar looks intense!

This design is Super Green! It has fire! it has energy! And it has POP, POP, POP! This cross-dressing radio show host is wonderfully rendered in a nice “s” shape pose with a bold tattoo style. Great banner with a nice fluid motion as it weaves throughout the figure. I very much enjoy the wild leopard print outfit. The stones woven throughout the design are a nice touch.

Steampunk mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Interesting, heroic take on the Disney princess. Lovely render of the classic Snow White beauty with a steampunk twist of her attire and accessories. I just wish I could see the steampunk dwarves! She looks cool and tough, ready to protect herself from the evil queen. Fantastic lines and interesting bright color selection. The design also looks great on the other colors options offered, on a yellow or purple shirt.

“I will show you revenge. I am FIRE… I am DEATH.” This is the original epic fantasy dragon, Smaug! Interesting way of combining these two infamous fantasy genre book series, one by J.R.R. Tolkien and the other by Geroge R.R. Martin. Smaug may only have one head, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get burned. Smaug looks fearsome portrayed as the three-headed dragon sigil of house Targaryen. Nice circular composition with curls to fill in the open spaces around the single head of the dragon. The rough, distressed texture along with the bold red give the design an effect of splattered blood spilled from the conflict.

No one does fireworks quite like Gandalf! Just keep an eye on Merry and Pippin, there hasn’t been a dragon in these parts for ages… This design has an old-time etching style. The composition is bilaterally balanced and is visually interesting. I enjoy the texture and the different typographic elements. The flat light blue -gray color on the dark indigo background creates a nice contrast.

This moth/bee provides the honey Heisenberg uses to sweeten his cooks. The design is composed from simple outlines. Wonderful thick to thin ratio of line width to create overall color. The basic geometry is nicely balanced. The large circular seal overhead anchors the design and repeats and relates to the circles within the insect.

“Where’s Esteban? Esteban was eaten! He was bitten? Eaten! [pause] He was swallowed whole? No! Chewed!” Stevie is out for revenge on his steamboat after the death of his friend Esteban and he’s packing’ dynamite. Super cute design referencing a movie I absolutely love! Nice big cartoon eyes along with thin Mickey Mouse limbs and big round shoes behind an enlarged ship’s wheel. Pleasant, calm, nautical color scheme.
