Plus, it reminds me of Redwall, Mrs. Frisby and the Rates of NIMH, Tale of Despereaux and so many other wonderful fantasy fiction books with adventurous mice.



RATS of NIMH. Doh.

If your character dies, do you have to burn the shirt?

Re: Kitty evolution



To be honest if I was to go off the whole tabletop rpg thing I am not really in love with any of the shirts there are none of the rpg shirts I've seen that I would wear. So since I can't find any of those I pick this one because my ever growing army of cat shirts needs more recruits and well it is a cute shirt. Very well done despite the whole not going on the tabletop gist they kinda meant.

Re: Kitchen Arsenal



I give you tons of props out of the things I have seen about this is the first Tabletop rpg themed shirt I have seen that I thought was creative and very nicely done. Most of the others are doing the standard dice jokes and video game rpg jokes. So you get my vote and my very sincere hope you make it to the top.

DJTweekNYC tl;dr



Honestly, Randyotter, I don't really check in on threadless that much. I've always supported your work and bought your shirts, so I'm disappointed that you chose a public forum to make accusations against me. I don't steal, I don't cheat and I do as much research as I can but sometimes coincidences just happen.

I don't think I've ever had an issue with fishbiscuit before so no nerd outrage here. I think I'm mostly just apathetic now with the lack of creativity and diversity around here these days.



Thanks, bluetuba. I try to be honest and keep my nose clean. Sadly, I think my more diverse designs don't do as well here. Cutesy molecules aren't that creative, but I had fun drawing these and I do love coffee and gaming, so, this is the end result I suppose. I hope people like it enough to keep voting. I think it's a likable, wearable design.

Nope, *you're* wrong. If it wins, it gets two buys in my house alone, and I've got friends giggling too. :P

Spell fail. "Glamour" is magic term that makes things seem different than they are. "Glamer" (long A) refers to a underwear gamer. (Unless that's what you're going for.)

And yes, if this were on a pocket T, I'd want one. But there IS no bonus pocket of holding on this style of T.

And... It is all text.



Yeah, I definitely read "glamer" as a cross between "lamer" and "gamer".

That said, it's way too similar to this.

Hadn't seen that before. I think they're different enough though. My shirt title isn't on the shirt. So with that in mind, my shirt has controllers with D&D attributes. That shirt has (different) controllers with "Choose Your Weapon", which is coincidentally the title of my shirt.

I'm really happy so many people are enjoying this design though I'm sorry it's not everyone's cup of tea, but not everything is.

This is amazing!!! Also my fiance knew he'd seen this image before and linked me to your blogspot. We almost tattled cause we thought someone had lifted this image and subbed it here. @_@ Im glad we figured out it was you though, always a relief!

Your art is wonderful and I hope to see more of it. You need to link folks here to your blog so they too can enjoy the awesomeness. :D

Well, it is the elves who make the mithril so not sure why Hobbit would be funnier. I'd love to hear your reasoning.

Not a spell fail -- please look it up. Glamer is an older word and is commonly used in D&D when talking about magic armor. There is also a separate specific spell that is spelled Glamour.

Fish, this is a contest to appeal to the voters. There's nothing wrong with trying your best to do something everyone will enjoy ^_^. People loves them some coffee, including me! I dont see anything wrong here at all. As much as we all want to be whimsical, the fact is we're trying to convince people to like what we do. The more we do that, the better we do in this particular arena.

Also, it's -very- poor form to publicly accuse artists of theft >. I've seen it happen so often here, I've been accused of it, and it feels utterly horrible (assuming said accusation is false, which 90% of the time it is). As artists we all draw from the same pools of inspiration. I've seen people draw something that was so close to something else that they'd -never- seen before. It happens. Cute molecule art has been around forever. I dont think anyone can claim ownership of this concept. It's like someone claiming ownership of anthropomorphic food. It's everywhere.

I think this is a cute shirt and I can see the theme clearly. It's definitely an everyday item. This could have easily depicted a standard cup of coffee, but instead it's the molecular form of caffeine. ^^

Aslo, I am not a Ramyb hater, as I own 20+ of his shirts, I am just annoyed that this derby is supposed to be about tabletop RPGs and everyone is doing video games.



er, I dunno- what is a real definition of "role playing games"? I really don't know, as I haven't played any- but I have seen people turn Pokemon into one- yes, younger people, but there isn't an age limit to whom a designer should appeal, is there?
