    Ah, it combines the two things i'm best at, pinball and listening to Jimi. Nicely done Sir Vissers

    Pinball and guitar hero together for the first time. Fantastical!!
  • schudhri said 238 weeks ago

    that is a real guitar, not guitar hero
  • Jayphoenix said 238 weeks ago

    That sideart robot is awesome!
  • adonahu said 238 weeks ago

    I am very, very upset by this. Jimi is by far someone I listen to for hours a day. I consider him to be far beyond anyone who has ever tried to touch music on a spiritual level. While I understand this is art, I feel that it directly discredits and makes a cartoon of the greatest musician of all time.

    meow, I don't like this at all. I love the tentacled robot though. My god, make that a shirt and I WILL buy it!

    That bottom sideart picture was printed here before but it wasn't quite the same. Guitar has been added in along with other things. Called "Noise Pollution".

    Pretty cool illustration and I don't see how it demeans him. It's just a neat drawing, Hendrix would probably want you to chill.
  • Stexe said 238 weeks ago

    I don't really get it. I mean I could understand it if it was someone from The Who (with their whole Pinball Wizard and Tommy and stuff)... but just seems like a weird mix with Hendrix.
  • steveomac said 238 weeks ago

    the concept is a little confusing to me and the style of the drawing seems kind of amateur,as if drawn by a small child, but by looking at your great side art you are obviously a better artist and you can do better. i have to say that i do like the color combo. really love the tentacle robot and the wino robot.

    To say that drugs demean Jimi Hendrix is well... it's honestly dumb. His drug use and that of his peers was an inseperable part of the culture he was involved in. I'm not saying his insane amount of talent came from psychedelics, but it's not something you can remove from his image. Besides, the image only vaguely resembles Jimi Hendrix and more fits the bill of just a random 70s arena rock guitarist and a period pinball machine.

    And really, this isn't the Queen or the Pope or someone's mother we're talking about. The guy isn't sacred. I'd think Hendrix would find this humorous, himself.

    Greatest musician of all time? Good thing that's not debatable or anything.

    Perhaps you should try to consider that this is a tribute to Jimi. The artist used his lyrics to create a visual representation of what he imagines when he hears them. I think that any attempt to convey what you think about when you hear a song should be regarded as art. I'm sure Jimi wouldn't be as close-minded to the idea behind this design, he would probably have interest in the fact that an artist was willing to take the time to express their idea of what his music is saying. Lighten up, I'm sure if you asked Jimi... or John, Paul, George, and Ringo (for another example) if they would be offended by somebody creating something that honors their talent, they would feel honored instead of disappointed. Can I hear an "Amen" from my fellow TeeFurians?

    I couldn't have said it better myself.

    Amen.

    Well, that's debatable. He's the queen or the Pope or someone's mom (metaphorically) to a lot of people. Personally, I don't think "Hey Joe you got a high score" is especially well written but whatever. I didn't like the last Hendrix shirt and I can't say I like this one much either but I'm happy that he's still on shirts this many years later in any case.

    ....it is a cartoon. Lighten up.
  • Olympia said 238 weeks ago

    Cool :)
    really liked the pinball video :D
  • JonBowerbank said 238 weeks ago

    Did the "Family Guy" manitees choose the premise for this one?
  • pbandito said 238 weeks ago

    Jimi's playing guitar left-handed, which is good.. but that is still a right-handed guitar. =\

    I like the print as a whole though and would consider getting this on a different shirt brand; black and Teefury just don't mix well, imo.

    I love this design. It is fun and light-hearted. Life is about poking fun of lots of things--everything and everybody. The halftone patterns are really well used.
