    I'm just captivated by the snow globe...

    Artist has a really nice design sense, but I personally think super-Asian-inspired work is getting kind of tired.
  • omiz144 said 246 weeks ago

    I think I'll sleep on this one. I like the design, friendship motif might be a bit too corny though! XD
  • mrjulian said 246 weeks ago

    The combination of the two characters would be translated as "the ties of friendship," which the artist has cleverly written out as the vertical line separating the two figures.
  • scmcverry said 246 weeks ago

    Stablercake, you do realize the artist is Asian? Hong Kong, hence the Chinese characters.

    i have to agree with everything you just said.


    .... just noticed something though
    is it just me or are they thumb wrestling?
  • godzilla said 246 weeks ago

    stablercake, what DO you like in a tee design?

    just curious.
  • joiewashere said 246 weeks ago

    I think I like it. I'm not sure.

    It's pretty stereotypical though.
  • Toonstar said 246 weeks ago

    haha nice, two samurai's in love.
  • Someone said 246 weeks ago

    1 2 3 4 I declare thumb war!
  • CPUT99 said 246 weeks ago

    The red characters on the olive really pop out which looks pretty groovy but I happen to sit on the side of the fence that is hesitant to sport something in Kanji (or is it another script?) -despite knowing what this particular set means...

    Anyway, blablabla.
  • kgvect said 246 weeks ago

    This shirt isn't stereotypical at all. Its a new concept as far as I know. How many themed shirts like this do you see with friendship or anything like that? I like it. I'm definitely grabbing this one.
  • laurelling said 246 weeks ago

    Not thumb wrestling. Their thumbs are cut and pressing on each other's thumb when the blood is running. That's the way to swear for your friendship with each other in the culture.

    The design and idea is really cool. Appreciate the artist being inspired by his own culture and incorporating his root into the design.
  • joiewashere said 246 weeks ago

    You really think it's not stereotypical?

    I guess I just wish there were more cool designs repped by Asian designers that have nothing to do with Asian culture.

    You're right though - concept is pretty new.
  • ruinsofspacestations said 246 weeks ago

    haha ^that is stereotypical^
  • xylotism said 246 weeks ago

    Another instance where I'd like to see the finished shirt. The guy's coloring looks like the only thing you can see is the red characters [which actually would look cool on their own]...

    Eh, I dunno. Probably gonna pass. Not bad though, not bad at all.
  • tP said 246 weeks ago

    Love those shirt colors. More olive green please. . .:) If the samurais weren't holding hands, I would probably get this one, but oh well.
  • indievik said 246 weeks ago

    @laurelling Thanks for the explanation. If I hadn't read your post I would've thought that the samurai were thumb wrestling, too.

    If I were a bigger fan of the teefury blanks, I'd probably buy this one--love the colors.
  • Reijn said 246 weeks ago

    i'm digging it.

    I'm also digging the Buddy Holly glasses as the artist's icon.

    @ indievik and tP: those are not samurai. Those are Chinese warriors and not Japanese warlords. >

  • AhemAhem said 246 weeks ago

    i really like the colors in this. great job!
