As I said with your other design, its really not very good unless you understand the reference. Adventure Time is a cartoon network show, DBH is a community of, for the most part, adults who don’t watch Cartoon Network. Most DBHers will thus not understand the design or characters because they don’t watch the show… Make sure to consider your audience when doing a design for DBH...

I actually think this is kinda cute – though I have no idea what Adventure Time is (and I DO occasionally watch Cartoon Network).

Keeping in mind your audience is always important, but I think that good art doesn’t require people to know the inspiration/reference to appreciate it.

My main thing would be that this is more of a “cartoony” style, something that DBH generally prints less often than a more artistic style. That, and generally more simplistic/cartoony art should be accompanied by a more complex concept. Complex designs can have a more simplistic concept. That way, there is going to be something requiring more a “second glance” from someone looking at it – whether it’s to appreciate the complexity of the art or because the concept is thought provoking.

Why is Intrepid assuming people at DBH don’t watch cartoons? Haha. If anything I’d think a community of designers are more inclined to watch cartoons than most adults.

Anyway, I love Adventure Time, but I’m not really digging this. I don’t really get it.
