    It's a great idea, but I think it could use some work. The iphone for instance looks a bit off. It might be perspective, or colors, or both. The "whale" seems strange also, other than the fact that it's a text bubble. I can't pinpoint exactly what's making me say that...

    Again, I think this could work, but it just needs a bit of cleaning up around the edges. I can't say that any of this is expert advice, because I'm not Cptn Ribman, or Chuffy, or any of them, but I can definitely say that this would be cool on a shirt.

    Good luck!

    Cute design.

    I think it needs a bit more polish. It's possible to retain the simple style while making the phone look more authentic. And maybe a bit of artistic license to make the whale a bit more whaleish.

    I don't know if your reference is well enough known to make it incredibly popular. My fianceé is an Apple fanatic (iPod, iPhone, iPad + Macbook) and she didn't get the reference. I use PCs and Android so I had to look it up too.

    To anyone not knowing the reference, it does look a bit like a retangular face crying or taking a whizz onto the phone screen.

    With a little finessing it could probably make a good design even if it is a rather niche meme.

    I'm not Ribman, not even close. I'm a lot like that other guy though.

    I love this! That whale's been all over tumblr lately... and I'm sure a lot of tumblr people would buy it. :D

    Bahahahahahahaha! I love the concept... DYAC! I would totally buy this.

    I think what would really help is if you made the tail (is that a tail? or a fin?) look like a whale's tail, shapewise -- maybe like this:

    whale-tail1-2bd805y.jpg

    (FYI -- Googling "whale tail" got me image results I really did not need to see...)

    I think adding that shape could clear the confusion up immensely. I also think making the whale a pale green and putting a reflection at the top, like the iphone's messaging bubble, could really add to the design, but it might make it hideous, haha. Maybe try it and see?

    But if you got a solid design together and it got printed, I'd be first to click the buy button, haha. Autocorrect has made some very awkward situations for me .__.
