Falling Dreams

#2

Help I’m falling and I can’t get up!


#3

Absolutely gorgeous. I’m so glad this won!


#4

Love the colors…well blended it appears. Reminds me of my favorite anime, or two, or three…


#5

I used to have those dreams…


#6

Sooo, if Icarus was killed because he flew too close to the sun how come this looks like it’s night-time?


#7

I love how the blue feathers look like they’re glowing!


#8

It’s a long way down ; )

On an actual comment about the shirt note, there is both grace and a sense of plummeting. Nicely done.


#9

Does that mean my face is the sun? :wink:


#10

I don’t buy it, blue is my favorite color but I don’t think this matches the myth. Icarus falling to earth should be bright and sunny, not dark and glowy.


#11

If you ever hit the ground as hard as he did, you would understand why it got dark in front of his eyes and he even saw stars.


#12

I sort of buy it. I took it as a play on the title, as falling dreams are pretty freakin’ scary.

TBH I had to do a double-take when I saw the derby name because I didn’t see what falling dreams had to do with Greece. Then I realized it was Icarus, dreams falling apart, ha ha. Yeah. Slow, I am.


#13

Exactly.


#14

WOW. I think I may have found a new favorite shirt. patrickspens never seems to fail me…I actually wore one of his shirts today to work too. :slight_smile:


#15

IMO, it’s a view of the feathers in the water


#16

Well… Woot’s write up - which should almost NEVER be taken literally - is about Icarus. The artist, however, isn’t referencing him. You can see by just how the wings are drawn (how they’re connected) is referencing something else - hence, “Falling Dreams.”


#17

he’s falling from a high enough altitude that the sky is black, but not so high that there aren’t a few gas molecules to knock his feathers around.


#18

The derby theme was Greece, so I definitely thought the artist was referencing Icarus… I’m afraid I don’t see anything else in the wings, although I’d be more than happy to see what it is you’re pointing out. Can you help me out?


#19

Very pretty! Congrats!

I feel like bright golden yellow colors would’ve made this even better. Ah well, great shirt, consider it bought.
