Kiwis are funny animals.

Here is the way this looks on a cheesy t-shirt shape.

jeromius

just doesn’t do it for me … maybe I don’t get it, maybe there is some other meaning.

So, are you saying that Kiwis are freakish?

affliction

I would say odd, but not freak. Not to mention that the inhabitants of New Zealand might take offense. Or maybe they would enjoy it. I don’t know, I don’t live there.

fashionvictim

What is this?? I don’t get it. Please give us more info.

Aarseth

Oops, no offense was meant to the residents of NZ…

Maybe it’s kind of subtle, but it’s not all that deep.. The kiwi here has three (3) legs. It is a freakish little bird.

Like I said, not too deep.

inman

Ah, I hadn’t noticed that. You know what should be done in the next one? Give either the R or the K (or both so there are 3 things with 3 legs) 3 “legs.” I like the idea although it’s visually too subtle as is.

Ben, I would go for a more wiry typeface (Helvetica Neue Light 25? I don’t have enough tees with Helvetica on them) in the next one to play off that weird beak. And lose the half tone (Sorry Chris :D)…

inman

Wait a minute, 3 legs? Is this a dig at Tripod the 3-legged Elephant?

jeromius

ahhhh … now I get it.

that third leg is so subtle - I didn’t even notice it.

Also, I agree on losing the halftone.

And what’s the significance of the word bubble?

Aarseth

How come nobody likes my half-tone?! I thought it was kind of cool, being that no one had used one yet.

Maybe I should have played that third leg up a bit more.. The bubble used to have something in it. Really, it serves no logical purpose, but let me explain..

Designologue is like a process to me. Like the Cadavre Exquis game we were talking about over the summer; each image builds with what was presented in the last. Leaving an empty word bubble is kind of me like leaving a door open for Ben to walk through. I mean, he can ignore it if he wants, but I left it, basically for him to fill in.

I feel like it’s more of a team effort this way, than a competition. Maybe I’m looking at it the wrong way..

bharper

Inman, you mean, HORTON?

bharper

Yea, you all forget that we can take advantage of the infinite number of images..

we have time to explore the options..

randy

I’ve never heard Cadavre Exquis always, Exquisite Corpse. Hmm, learn something new everyday.

bharper

that’s the french name.. (the original name, if im correct)

randy

Yeah, I realize it’s French. I picked up a bit after four semesters of schoolin’. However, I didn’t realize the excercise/game orginated in France. Though, I have to admit I never really thought about it.

bharper

I had never heard it played or said in english. And then my French buddies made that game (linked above) and suddenly I realized I was the only american who had never heard of Corpses.

I have always wondered what a kiwi fart would sound like…

bharper

Forget about the sound, you should try workin with one of ‘em. Fuckin things STINK!

fashionvictim

LOL to the comment and the image.

jeromius

much better.

I like the execution of the type.

I also like how the Kiwi is talking out of his ass, like so many of us have done at one point or another.

bharper

Aarseth?

Hello, anybody home?

Arrrrr, Seth… where’s me wooden leg, and me trusty dagger?

That’s right… Me’s a PIRATE….

ARRRR..

bharper

we have 1 month. Let’s get this one hoppin!

inman

Hoppin’ on three legs? That’d be a might hop.

bharper

Look, we got 14 days left. Lets make some magic.

xavi

I understand that T:stuff was for threadless competitions but… should’nt that explorations be finished? Whould be great to see where are they going to and maybe you dsnlgrs could post your results at threadless… bad idea?

RevDrLuv

Good idea.

Now I just have to find some free time! Hard to do lately, I shouldn’t even be lurking here…

gtg!

bharper

i’ld like to finish this one. it’s not up to me tho.
