This design is inspired by Hawaiian tribal tattoos, and is a dark olive print on a grass-colored shirt. All hand drawn in Inkscape. Enjoy!

love the design, but what colour is this on? looks like a lighter green than woot has to me, but it would look good on kelly, too

Fat Unicorn is printed on grass so the shirt color should be fine.

Very cool design. It does look like a tattoo. The shapes are really sharp and perfectly done. Nice job!

Plumeria is my favorite Hawaiian flower! So glad someone used it in a design. Definitely gets my vote. =)

OpenDesign, great work. GMV. I was similarly inspired by Maori tattoos (although my execution doesn't compare to yours). This really is beautiful. Best of luck.

I have been using inkscape a lot myself. It is a pain to get things out of it and into photoshop but I like the program itself.

Yeah, I use Inkscape all the time. I downloaded the pre-release version of 0.47 to create this, and it has a few features that make the workflow a lot faster.

Thanks to everyone for the votes and the feedback!

Reminds me of money, which is what you'll be making if my prediction about where this ends up comes true.

This design is so simple yet so amazing. Woot should print more stuff like this. Awesome work OpenDesign, I think you have reminded us what truly makes a solid shirt. This is it. I wouldn't be surprised if you stay on top of the reckoning list for a long time - this is assuming you will get printed. which you will.

I quite like the simplicity in this design and how the different elements (flower, water, sun, bird) all meld together into one coherent piece. However, it does remind me a great deal of Thrive from the Green derby.
