I didn't really have money to buy this, but I did anyway. I am officially working on an octopus-themed woot shirt collection! I now have the PEWPEW octopus shirt (from comic book derby), the Inktopus by Radiomode (from the complementary colors derby), and now this one! ^^

I love this website! ^^

Great looking design. I ordered one.

I think he ought to be on a recumbent bike, though. Everyone knows that octopi prefer 'bents.

The piece overall is well done!
It could easily end up as a print for someone's wall.
The serious style fits perfectly with "silliness" of an octopus riding a bike underwater....with a bowler hat XD
It may be bias since I love tentacles but I love this shirt and I just bought it. ^_^

I just had a thought (don't worry, I didn't injure myself) - wouldn't it have made sense to print this next Monday and have this shirt as the first daily of Octo-ber?

Look for The Ninja Pandas vs The Diabolical Pirate Octopus to add to your collection too, then.

Edit: More to look for - You Shall Not Octopass, Octospelled, and Caution Octopus’ May Be Larger Than It Appears

I hear it's a lot of work to take care of a pony, to say nothing of 3 of them! Q.uidditch P.layers, however, take care of themselves. Thanks!

I hope the artist is giving royalties to Sir Critter for this design.

Best daily selection in a very long time it seems. I only wish there was a highlight color or something to add more drastic values. The colors are are pretty close in value. O well... still rocks! Great choice woot.

The detail in this artwork is just incredible. Jillian's portfolio is similarly phenomenal.

I think he's a bit more proper than hipster. Unless biking is somehow inherently hipster? And if so, even as a non-biker, that makes me incredibly sad for our culture that cheap, healthful transit is just one more thing to be maligned as "elitist". Though I was often honked at when I'd walk in the south, so I shouldn't be surprised... apparently being remotely self-propelled is a dirty concept worthy of mockery.

Love this piece (jillustration does some amazing linework), but this is definitely one of those times woot loses by having such a slim selection of blanks. The color it was on when I saw it originally on Threadless appealed to me far more. I'm also a tad concerned about the size, but I'll chalk that one up to the new template.

It's still pretty awesome, tho. Good luck, Jill.

There are some...non conformists who do things for reasons of purity of purpose more so than because their faux nonconformist counterparts are doing the same things just to be "different".

I agree this is a great illustration. I'd have one if I wasn't on shirt moratorium due to the Tilteed sale.

Hipsters haven't ridden cruisers in years. They ride fixies.

Does anyone know how light the baby blue shirts are? Do they wash out pale-skinned people?

This T-shirt pushed me over the edge; I am now gearing up to start the a Cephalopod Enthusiasts club. First, my Miskatonic University tee and its Octo logo. Then I got a clearance sale tee (Billabong)of a Victorian lady whose beehive hair turns into a giant squid attacking a pirate ship. Now this WONDERFUL biking fellow. Yes sir, I am now officially starting an Octopus Fan Club. I may have to follow the peralink and get a few more...

Oh pish posh; it depends on the neighborhood, my good sir. Fort Collins is RIFE with hipsters on cruisers. Of course the chaps at Crankinstein adhere to a strict scrap bike diet.

This shirt has been reckoned and no longer in print. Try teetrade.org, wootswap.com, or the random shirt trade center in the Shirt.Woot forum. You might get lucky and find it there.
