if a third print area was allowed, I'd have included something for writing too ;)

I do believe this is the first contest on this site I've entered for; I don't usually participate in these. but this was a fun idea that kept poking me in the brain.
vote for it if you like (right side, under the :+fav: button), though I don't expect it to go very far. in any case, I'll be able to try making one for myself when it isn't chosen ;P

2 print areas: front + back
5 colors: blue, red, grey, black, white
illustrator & photoshop

I find this t-shirt highly creative. I like how the rain she is creating is gathered, in form of musical notes, by him. It's as if they were talking through rain. :)

The drawing style is also nice and I like your color choice. I wish you the best of luck at the contest :la:

I wonder:

If I write you a message in water on the pavement outside, might the words evaporate and precipitate on your window, thousands of miles away? Would the drops fall backward? Or would they end up in some sort of indecipherable code, like that one message you sent that ended up in numbers and letters?

It's been pretty hot and humid lately; I should try ;)

VaKonS Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012
wow, evaporating message, so poetic ^^

I'll send you a letter
With drops of rain
In streams of wind
On rays of star

Through thousand miles
It will fly away
To bring my name
Right to your heart
