$12 Teextile: Blood And Thunder

3 pennies earned

"Blood and Thunder," by W3SL3YMILL3R reminds me of that sailor's saying about the red dawn. I don't remember exactly what it is, but I know that in the phrase, red is a bad omen. In this shirt red seems to play a similar role. The lightning helps, too.

But even if the scene looks perilous, it's still cool. The ship outlined against the dynamic colors of red, black and white, is awesome. I can totally see Captain Jack Sparrow at the helm.

If you like adventure, and you're tired of feeling landlocked, this is the shirt for you.

"Red Sky at morning, Sailor take warning"

Red sky was no doubt a bad omen. Someone found a CD cover that used the same image and I got eaten alive trying to stand up for myself. What a mess

That's pretty tough, but thanks for being open about the whole thing.

The CD in questionSource materialWe're definitely entering a new territory in the tshirt world. As boutique tees become more popular and widespread, so grow the number of eagle-eyed purchasers who can find similarities with others' work.

If this topic interests you, I highly recommend you visit the lively discussion around this tshirt.

I don't understand what the fuss is about. Two artists used the same free-use image in two separate places. What gives?

It's not like the debacle from that Woot shirt where the guy clearly used someone else's deviantart image and claimed it as his own.

However, upon looking at the album cover and this.. it seems like he took a free-use image and simply colorized it. Not nearly as easy as it sounds, of course.. but it does kind of sully his shirt design since he didn't do much art of his own.

Really on the fence regarding how to feel about this one.

Also, I'm not ashamed to say I like Atreyu, heh. :)
