I voted for this one - it's a very nice design and I like the colors.

Just for future reference, they're called "Canada geese", not "Canadian geese". Some Canadians get a bit prickly about that... so, one would be a Canada goose.

They're a nuisance here, but don't tell anyone.

Re: Canadian Periodic Table



Great idea for sure, but the randomness of the colors distracts me. The six color rule makes it difficult, but could you have grouped them more aesthetically, or am I missing something significant with the current grouping?

If you make it a blackshirt w/ red leaves and one white you got my vote.

Back when I was a kid my family and I would occasioanlly head up to Canada to visit my mother's relatives. We would usually go in the early fall when the leaves were all turning and the loons and Canadian gese were all in flight... headed south I guess. My mom's not with us anymore but I still remember the way she loved the changing colors of the leaves and the sight of those birds in flight. I wanted to pay homage to that with this shirt; I call it Lake Ontario Sunset. Please let me know if you like it. Thanks!



This is a very beautiful shirt. Your story makes it more so.

Clever, substituting the maple leaf for the usual heart. A nice update on an old theme.

again, cool shirt



Thanks for the compliment. I wish I knew what the voters liked. I really thought that my designs last week would have done well, but they were in the low 100s by rank at the end of the week. I find that when I do a shirt I really love, it tends to do well with the voters. My single print so far was a design I loved, and I'm really happy with this one, too.

I think there are a lot of 20 year old guys buying, but I'm not sure they're all voting.

The randomness of the NUMBERS didn't bother you?

No way, mine's way better. If you can't tell, the "made in" tag (hecho en) represents Mexico. Obviously some political inference in play here. Besides, if this shirt wins, you have to pay in AmEros. (am-air-ohs).

I agree with everyone else, this design is very cool. It's adorable, clever, and drawn very well.

So many clever ideas coming out! I like this one - it reminds me of the t-shirts with a tuxedo image on them that guys wore at my high school years ago.

The omitted bottom two rows should have been all canadian beers ;-)

Nice design, Derek. I like it and the colors chosen, too. GMV.



Thanks, i'm getting better at this color choosing thing. I went through 7 different variations this time around (from light yellow to the one I ended up using here) Good to hear I may have made the right choice ;-)

As a canadian, I think this would make a great poster, but as a shirt, I would never wear it. Shirt text should be short and concise. If people have to stop you in order to read your shirt, it's annoying.

Heheh... yeah... I stayed up until six am working on it. I'm glad you apprecate it. Thanks.
