Why thank you. I'm really happy to see this shirt connecting with so many people. I realize there's a long week of voting ahead of us, but seeing all the love here makes me feel like I've accomplished something with my art.

far too dense towards the bottom, and also, looks like a square. Should have been more tactful about using the print area in a better way. Glad to see somebody run with a decent Maple Leaf design, however.

Re: Fireweed - Flower of the Yukon



I used to live in Juneau AK and there was tons of fireweed there. I must say this is very, very well done - looks just like it.

Strikingly beautiful. The sunset in the leaves (within the leaf) alone is worth the price of admission.

Thanks. I had to recolor like three or four times before I was happy with it. :-)

This is really too cluttered. There's a lot going on, and it's not that it's bad, but there's way too much of it. The slogan is too close to the text of the syrup bottle, the scribbles around the tire swing don't really make sense, the styles seem to clash all over, the tree is too boxy... I think you've got some ideas in here, but I think you'll do waaay better with it if you try to distill it down to one basic concept... as it is, there's so much going on that it feels slapped together and not designed. I know it can be hard to give up an idea, but sometimes they need distilling



The scribbles are his signature... I'm fairly sure. But I agree with Adder, here. I don't care for how close the text is to the bottom of the bottle. Especially seeing it's got text there as well. It's very busy and very boxy. And I would go one further to say that the bottle is a lost cause if you want it printed here, because the color is so close to the background it just won't show up.

Re: FonzEhhh


Now that everyone's calmed down, I'd like to say I like this. It's [kind of] creepy though and I don't think I could wear it but I like the design. ^_^ I'd totally buy it as a gift.

I love the color contrast against the black shirt. Here's hoping if it wins, it'll print as nice as it looks here!

Thanks. It was fun for a while, but in the effort to get it down to 6 colors, it felt like I did the art 3 times over. I don’t think I'll need to worry about placing too high this week, but do appreciate the votes. Congrats on being in the fog so early. Good luck!

Wonderful work, but just one question from looking at the sample...does it come with the sweat stains on the armpits?

Re: Glowing Polar Bear



While up in Churchill Canada I took a shot of this polar bear, I love how he lines up so vertically

This is only my second derby so I would love any critique!

I'm voting for this shirt, too, but apparently many of the Canada geese in the San Francisco area no longer bother to migrate and just eat and poop here year-round.

But despite the *amazing* skill - this shirt scares me and would give me horrible nightmares. Sorry.



I simply do NOT understand how people can say a shirt would give them nightmares. What are you girls, babies? There is nothing scary about this design at all. NOTHING!

Anyone who says it is scary is nothing more than a big ole wuss

Really, Canada should be paying some kind of maintenance fee or seasonal rent for their geese when they come down here, act like they own the place, then up and leave (or in this case don't leave). It's all well and good when you can put your name on a Goose, but when it comes to taking responsibilty for it's up keep Canada's no where to be found. Either pay us Americans for goose rent or change the name to Canada/America Geese. That's my position.

well, i've had a recurring nightmare where i'm being chased by the fonz and he's yelling at me to check out his tattoo. one time i turned around to look at his tattoo and he started to take off his shirt, and thankfully, i woke up. it's really scary. so, this shirt terrifies me. but i'd still wear it.

I am a wuss, a girl, and a baby. Also I am kind of a scaredy cat.

And... I am terrified of moose mutants. Look at those horns, man- they are for VIOLENCE. And the thumbs up is a blatantly aggressive action, like thumbs up yours too, buddy! He even has a leather jacket, just like those criminals on the tv.

In conclusion: this shirt is a menace, and must be stopped.
