    sorry , thats just dumb.

    grab a shitty 72 dpi image off of google patents ,

    put it onto your computer printer and charge 23 bucks for them.

    worst shirt ever , not even funny/satarical.

    being a illustrator and visual designer , thats not original at all.

    Worst waste of cloth ever. My spankerchief is more useful.

    I wouldn't wax my car with this shirt. Awww who am I kidding I haven't waxed my own car since before Dave was kicked out the second time.

    Catching the car wash with a hand wax at $30 while I have lunch at the Wendy's next door is just too good a deal.

    It's a simple two word review:

    'Shit Sandwich'
    Ed: Actually, the last record I bought was by a band called Brand X
    Al: I make my living by viciously attacking something
    Mike: ...actually I don't drink.
    Sammy: Are these yours Eddie?
    Dave: Look at that ankle - dirty girl!

    There was a guy selling a very similar shirt like that on eBay. The poor guy didn't know what the hell the picture was. I had to contact em to fill em in. He had something like "a diagram of how Eddie restrings his guitars".

    It's awesome... Really wanna get my hands on it. But it looks kind of cheap for $ 23.00.
    Mistakenly underrated.

    I don't think it's all that bad, but it sure beats the hell out of this disaster. On a scale of 1 to 10 for originality and appearance that baby gets a zero on all counts. Gotta be the worst VH related shirt I've ever seen.

    granted , but to grab someone elses artwork or photograph off a webpage and place it centered on a t shirt and saying "im a t shirt designer" kind of offends me as an artist.
    i mean 23 bucks ? plus shipping ? 10 bucks maybe.

    i mean there are some cool little homemade limited run eddie shirts ive seen that are silk screened old school style shirts on ebay for like 8 to 10 bucks thats no biggie.

    and as much as an officially licensed shirt costs at least it was conceptualized , approved , then created by an artist as an original piece of artwork.

    Fair enough. Yet I bet if you showed up to a VH-themed party wearing the same shirt (with a few slight modifications) and a package of these things clipped to the shoulder, you'd be quite popular.

    then i guess capatilism means youre brain dead designer with no imagination or creativity and so are the consumers who buy your stuff.


    i think if you'd wear that shirt it should also have "douchebag" printed on the back.

    theres better designed van halen shirts out there for 23 dollars.

    I am a Graphic Designer as well, and I thought it was quite imaginative honestly. You can argue all day that there is no creativity there, but it's a unique photo you dont see much, that only us die hards know what it is. So at the very least this guy had that thought. Some of the greatest stuff you come across is by people who are just doing something quirky. It's a photo that has never been used before other than what it was originally intended.

    you can argue price if you want, but I am sure there are people who look at your work and think "this shit sucks". same with my work too. But honestly it sounds like you're a little jealous. we could all sit here and pick apart your work if we wanted to, you linked right to it.
