I like it, but I don't think I want it. Side note: is this the same artist who did the shirt with the little girl and the pet brontosaurus?

Reminds me of kite fighting.

I've never actually flown a kite before. Maybe when I have kids.

I think it's a girl monster. The top of her head says "elle", which is french for "she".

Awesome design. I feel like I want a huge print of that covering an entire wall at my place.

Pft, there's nothing to worry about. That so called 'monster' is just full of hot (or possibly cool) air.

Apelad did Death has Keen Eyesight and, well, Apelad. I don't think he was behind Live Wire.

That said, it's not for me, but the title alone makes it way better than the offering from "some related site with a similar daily offering". I am not naming it, because apparently naming similar sites is grounds for deleting comments some places.

You're totally going to have to get on that before you have kids. Kite flying, I'll have you know, is an "all people of all ages" type of thing. It's something I really like to do in my free time, and I completely think you should give it a go...especially before you have to go with children who will inevitably end up crying because they tangle their strings or can't get it to fly.

In case anyone's wondering, Adder is talking about Teefury. It appears they have printed another copied shirt. Unless there is some multi-universe thing going on.

I wish some of the shirts would be alittle more adult. Too many cartoons lately.

I love the detail on the girl, her face is very expressive. Refreshing.

The physics of this shirt don't line up. Based on the direction the girl's hair is blowing the kite should be positioned differently. I call [physical] shenanigans!

Much like adder, not for me, but boy do I love that name.

I hope this shirt comes with a pet mouse (or rat) that you can set on the shirt and test his intelligence by timing how long it takes him to follow the path of the kite's string.

Who wants flowers, really? I'm sure Algernon would have preferred this kite.

does this "percentage of sales per day" thing mean I can wait and this shirt will be here past midnight tomorrow? (assuming no sell out of course)

If it was a boy instead of a girl, I'd really consider buying it. I used to make kites from newspapers as a kid, flying it in the hills, that was sure fun. I'm not much of a fan of olive shirts though.

Adam, I don't know if I love it on olive, but the cartoon is well done and I love the monster out of string. I would have liked to have seen it on baby blue, royal, or even grass or kelly green

The girl's hair isn't blowing from the wind; she's running away. DUH!

Man, I love running with kites. And I love olive. But I don't like Axe being shipped with my tees. Woe is me.

This is one of the cooler designs that I've seen on woot, the only problem is that i'm a guy and I don't know if I'm cool enough to sport a picture of a little girl wearing purple on the front of my shirt... no matter how cool the overall design may be.

My children will not cry. I will train them to be perfect. Every tear will be dealt with severely. They will learn quickly. They will be merciless, calculating, killing machines. I will foster a dynasty, a clan whose legacy will survive millenia. Thou shalt hear the name Halcyon, and thou wilt tremble. No more shall the word mean serenity or tranquility. No! "Halcyon" will become synonymous with death and destruction. We will rain torment on all humanity! We will reign supreme! BWAHAHAHAHA!

Except, you know, it'll be my actual name instead of "Halcyon".

And I'm just kidding. *shifty eyes*
