hahaha, I love it... but with regard to scale, that's either not the 2.5 lb ball, or that's a big rat!

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!

Re: Blinded (resub)



This depicts the Greek myth of Icarus, who was overcome with the sublime feeling of flight during his escape from Crete and flew too close to the sun despite his father's warnings, which melted the wax in his wings and caused him to fall to his death. I see greed as desiring something too much (be it material watch or simply a feeling), just as Icarus was blinded by his own greed to fly higher into the sun.

TG - great design as usual. Quick critique from a layperson - why does the Red Sea look like the Red Lake on the globe?

Wasn't Icarus overcome by the joy of flying and just forgot to not fly too high? I really don't think the story of Daedalus and Icarus had anything to do with greed.

Re: In Pursuit of the Dollar



I can't believe this isn't in the fog. It fits the theme perfectly, is very clever, not on a grey shirt, and incredibly wearable. Instead we have monkeys, a pig, and another penguin. PAAAaaaAAaaaanCAAAAAKES!??? This is why I never even check to see what's on sale fri-sun. I know it's something I'll never buy because I'm over the age of 10. Oh well.

Re: Shell Competition



great design. Love the shading. I'm so glad I bought an olive shirt from woot already, so I know how nice the color is in person! This is a very wearable shirt that says "greed" without saying it so loud that you'd have to explain it to everyone.

I'm collecting beach t-shirts, and this is perfect for going to our (hermit-crab over-populated) beach!

I think it's a matter of literary interpretation. We talked about this very issue in my undergrad classic lit course (whether it was forgetfulness or blatant disobedience) as in the literature his motivations are never really mentioned:

"They passed Samos and Delos on the left and Lebynthos on the
right, when the boy, exulting in his career, began to leave the
guidance of his companion and soar upward as if to reach heaven.
The nearness of the blazing sun softened the wax which held the
feathers together, and they came off. He fluttered with his
arms, but no feathers remained to hold the air. While his mouth
uttered cries to his father, it was submerged in the blue waters
of the sea, which thenceforth was called by his name."

I tend to interpret it as an act of selfish disobedience. I've also seen the myth used to describe situations in modern culture where people get too greedy and meet negative consequences as a result.

GMV for various reasons! 1. I agree that the monkeys and pigs should burst into flames 2. I would actually wear this 3. For some reason I like buying multiple shirts in a derby and I'll definitely get Cho's penquins if it's available. Oh yes, and tub o' butter kings are a strange strange fetish of mine...or is it geography...I get confused sometimes.

After this post, and my response, several men chimed in, many agreeing with your more sinister interpretation. Is it her gracefulness can be interpreted as heartless nonchalance? who knows. but interesting to look at one's work again and see something different.
