Pop and Lock is a dance, the words also represent soda and a mechanical device used to secure possessions. Thus, those inanimate objects are doing their namesake dance.

People find it entertaining when inanimate objects dance, that's how Paula Abdul built her career.



I think you mean MC Skat Kat, but Paula Abdul as an inanimate object dancing is a much more hilarious mental picture

I find that this basic dart style of airplane doesn't fly as well as others. ;)

At 2am last night, as I was heading to bed, I was struck by the desire to create a turtle shirt as well. I think I'm going to try it... don't worry though, it's nothing like this. =P



Hey i'm all for it.... i love turtles. I bought the last turtle shirt..and would buy yours if it wins. Even if it knocks mine out of the running.
but honestly i don't think it will have enough gas to make it to the finish. Slow turtle

It should be doable, but you'd have to choose and use your colours more carefully.

This penguin can't fly, but it can certainly flap its wings...and blow leaves away.

What do you think?

Totally agreed... i don't know if it's ideal shirt-wise, but it's certainly one of the better designs this week so far... I was impressed by the sheer scope of it

I like the subtlety on creme, though the contrast with brown has its merits as well... hm.

When I see this, I think of one of my fav songs from the 1980s breakdance era...

Newcleus - Jam On It

awesome design...if you can change the hands of the lock before the shirt is made, it would be even better...

So are you just referencing the swirls? Isn't that a fairly common technique to represent spinning and dizziness? =P

Not my cup of tea really, Edgar, but probably one of your most accessible. Good luck in the fog... you're one of the most original artists here, and I'd love to see that finally get rewarded.

I was not trying to be critical in any way. I was more commenting on what your designe reminds me of... In the movie the image spun, but the box doesn't represent that well. Anyways I like your design!

I attribute the eyes to the stylings of Gary Larson of the Far Side, he always made me laugh and I loved the way he did his eyes....

Okay, I don't know why I can't edit my own post, but I didn't get to finish what I was saying.

I'm not trying to call it out as being a copy. It looks like completely different positions, etc, but just really reminded me of the above comic.
