wow this is the most sacrilegious shirt I’ve ever seen. do you really hate Jesus that much? I’m sure you’re a great guy but this is terrible man. I really like the illustration skills though, just uses them towards something less hateful and demonic.

Thanks! Just to give my 5 cents, and I hope I’m not ranting. :P

I don’t hate anyone, and the purpose isn’t to offend. To me, this is entirely in the “artistic interpretation” realm. There are a lot of “zombie jesus” shirts and similar satire/spoof designs out there. If I was a believer, I probably would find those to be in worse taste than something that draws on actual religious history and puts a literal spin on the codified name of christ used by the first christians in times of persecution. Apart from my drawing style being a bit bizarre and the fish looking slightly creepy (as they usually do), the motif in itself should be value-neutral even to believers; it’s not like I put a pig or snake on the cross. I thought that it’d be a visually interesting idea to explore the Ichtys symbology this way, that’s all.

I don’t deny anyone the right to be offended or to disagree with my view, but if I thought that it’d be percieved as a “hate shirt” or a simple provocation, I wouldn’t have submitted it to a community like this with the hope of getting it printed.

But I appreciate the illustration skills comment, and of course it’s possible that a design like this actually is a bit out of line for DBH. I’m a new submitter, so the radar isn’t perfectly tuned yet. :-)

Dude it’s completely cool, I really don’t think there IS a radar. They wouldn’t have put it up if it was to offensive. I do think I went a lil far with the ‘hate stuff’ so I hope you can forgive me. I think I said that because at the time I was offended because I am a believer and my emotions got the best of me, so I apologize. I just get really verbal when I feel my God is under attack. I would like to see some more of your work (ha forewarn me if you have anymore work like this, so I can prepare myself).

Voted up.

Great skills.

Never let anyone’s belief system alter your brain. Too many people push their beliefs on others in the first place.
