My interpretation: Pop culture is defined someone else's Intellectual Property. A Queen album cover counts, GS Cookies not so much. If you want to play it safe, just call them "Kampy Kids Kookies" or something. Peeps aren't pop culture either.

Here's what I got happening so far.

It's called "Cloud Control"

I think I might add in some cheering flowers for something
for extra pep.

I open for any other suggestions

I like it, a bunch of rusting pipes of various colors, dark muted ones, and the only burst of color is in the spring flower. Great concept, match it with the right colors and style and it will look great

I wouldn't recommend relying so closely on Preston Blair's original.
I'm not calling you out or anything, I really like your stuff. You just might want to steer clear of such a close inspiration.

He's definitely a big inspiration - will rework a bit to fit my style. Wanted to get the concept in front of y'all.

It's definitely a good concept, especially with a spring-y background.

It does look quite good, I only have 2 minor quibbles with the rainbow:

There is no purple color.

The green is hard to see compared to the other colors.

Looks great otherwise.

I like that, but I think rainbowie something rather than flowers. I like it just black and white even.

Great job!!! I love it on the brown, I just wish the colors popped/glowed a little more. I'd also like to see a little bit more "spring" in the atmosphere: pink, green, turquoise, orange.
Good luck!

I think it would be rejected from how they described the rule.

Also those flowers are creepy - in a bad way.

I see the bear on a light blue and the squirrel on a green - that's what's coming to my mind at the moment.

you can't submit 1 design with 2 options, you have to submit them separately. the problem with that is splitting your votes.
I like the cream shirt best.

Each color must be submitted as its own entry, which runs the risk of splitting your votes. For what it's worth, I'm not digging the green. I really love the contrast on the cream, but it's not a very popular color here. I'll still buy a design I really like even if it's on a color I don't wear. I have several cream shirts I have never worn once but I'm glad that I own them.

Thanks for letting me know! I guess I'll just take the risk and go with the Creme.

This one's awesome! I'm picturing brown on yellow (or maybe yellow/orange on brown?). Does Woot still have cranberry? I would love a cranberry shirt, but mainly because that's my fav shirt color here :-)

Maybe have the other legs preparing as well...plotting targets on a map, polishing boots, wiping his brow?

Hay Fever is great and worth a chuckle so I'd go with that. And, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry, but I'm having a very "What is seen cannot be unseen" moment with the "Preparing for battle" sketch.

Hay Fever




I really like this one but as a serious hay fever sufferer, I would rather see him sneezing with tissues all around him (or watery eyes or congestion) because those are more true hay fever symptoms than what is depicted here, though I get that you're conveying "fever" also, but I think a sneezing bale of hay would be so cute.

So this is step two. I appreciate the comment on the first one. This is how it is coming along. I would really like some more feedback.

how intriguing! Gaithersburg, the town no one knows the location of, where people (or is it gators?) wear my fave pullover proudly. i guess it's not in Kansas [anymore]?
