Very cute and appealing - was there a Tim Burton-ish inspiration for this one? I love his stuff, too.

I like it. The colors especially. I wish Woot had glow in the dark inks - they would be great for parts of this deisgn.

They have printed a daily with glow-in-the-dark ink. But, I don't think they've used any on a derby shirt, yet. But, you're right...this one would be cute with specialty ink.

Yup, I like his stuff. I didn't look at a particular drawing of his to do this, but I wanted to get the same feeling.

Well thank you very much. I'll play and refine this style some more if possible in the up-coming derbies. I like this, but could still stand a bit of polish ;)

Thanks guys
This one won't get printed this time around, but I'll continue to give this style a shot. Maybe someday!

Too bad! I so wanted to have a shirt with this cuddly pair on it. Better luck with your next one, Sokowa.

Hey Sokowa- Today was storytime for the lil' ones at the library and the theme was bunny rabbits. They read (and sang) lil' bunny foo foo and I couldn't help but think of your design from the lyrics derby! Didn't know today's topic ahead of time, or I would have worn my copy of your shirt! Would have been perfect!

I will add to that, I LOVE my Bunny Foo Foo shirt, Sokowa!

Wow, thank you both. It's fun when a design wins of course, but the you really start second guessing yourself. "OH, they're going to hate the real thing" or "Oh, I think I screwed the design up somehow" Then I have nightmares of 1500 people in my front lawn demanding to tar and feather me.
