Does anyone know who made the image on this shirt and were i can find a nice print or high-res image of it?

Also, is the subliminal message too obvious?

Yes, it is too obvious.

Yes, it's obvious. It's also a really horrible shirt. And I found the woman wearing it to be very unappealing, despite her best efforts at mind control.

Maybe the people who are selling the shirt are the people to ask about hi-res images. They even have a contact page on the site.

The pollination metaphor is extremely obvious, as well, and actually struck me first, then I scrolled to the more naughty one.

But what is really obvious is that the greyish background was hastily removed by a shoddy editing software, ala Microsoft Image Composer (lol!).

Dreadful. Also, it's not subliminal at all - it's just use of dead space.

Best answer: I remember seeing this design on a poster in a head shop in the early 1980s. Apparently August Bullock, who wrote the book this image was on the cover of, designed it.

Ha ha ha - I just read the blurb on the page: "Laboratory experiments have shown that illusions of this type can influence people's behaviour without their realizing it."

P-lease!! (oh, and it's not an illusion either)....

Response by poster: well, that's depressing.
