Dedications as tee designs work surprisingly well. Homages and tributes such as to a favorite author, poet, artist, friend or family member, or to their respective works often make designs that are as great as the people and things that inspire them in the first place.
Consider all of those t-shirt designs paying tribute to Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven or Anabel Lee as examples of how another’s work or actions can be transferred over and translated into the art world.
Paying homage to someone, or to a favorite story by or about that person could not be more fitting than a tasteful graphic. People even get tattoos of a white rabbit and a pocket watch, so going as far as to create a t shirt is not that uncommon at all. There are artworks based on the descriptive works such as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, and The Lord of The Rings by J.R. R. Tolkien, and countless other authors. Furthermore, there are pop culture references to shows like The Big Bang Theory, Firefly, and movies such as Fight Club and Star Wars.
Besides all the fan art out there covering the pop culture market and the living, you see designs popping up that honor those that have passed on such as designs featuring Steve Jobs of Apple and Kurt Cobain of Nirvana and will continue to do such for many years long after their passing. Think of the heroes such as Neil Armstrong and Martin Luther King Junior and their inspirational words that have echoed in our minds, repeating for generations.
Dedications As Tee Designs.
It is about people inspiring others through their creatives and by the way those people express their creations, ideals, and the impact that they all have on us that make dedications an excellent source of T-Shirt inspiration to tap when needed. Many of us would not be the same people that we are now if certain songs, stories, or movies hadn’t touched our lives in one way or another.
