This shirt is 7 shades of awesome. My only fear is that woot(!) has some sort of 'halloween' derby planned and will reject all halloween them,ed shirts before then (as has happened in the past)

Yes! Orange, not black. When it wins next weekend, it may even get there using Smart Post. GMV!

Love your illustration skillz and your detail. I also don't have an orange shirt and whoever said it would get here by Halloween was spot on :D with Smartpost.

ETA: I am still sad about Clockwork Orange. Loved that!

great shirt design.

I would prefer a black shirt with orange on it, but I'd definitely buy this anyway. GMV

Wonderful illustration. I especially like the ink shadow scribbles in addition to what everyone else has said. I'll be looking for this one come purchase time.

Absolutely awesome. The illustrations are beautiful on thier own, and the fact that they spell out "Trick or Treat" so well is an added bonus.

It may be a seasonal shirt, but I'd probably wear this one year round. I'm just freaky like that. I really like all the attention to detail. Great job!

Re: Trick or Treat


Thanks everyone for the support and votes!

I was hoping for a Halloween themed contest, but since that didn't happen, I did my best to bring Halloween to the contest.
I'm glad you guys are liking the design.

@Heartluce: Thanks very much, in the future I'll see what I can do about making the Clockwork Orange design available elsewhere

@David: Thank you sir, your illustrations are looking good these week as well!
This design took my about 3 or 4 hours I believe. From pencil sketches and the working with color.

The level of detail on this one is amazing. I fear for Woot's ability to print it, but it is awesome nevertheless.

Re: Trick or Treat


I really like this design, but I'm very anti-holiday-shirt-wearing. I'm very concerned that someday I will turn into a middle-aged mom who wears "Merry Christmas" shirts and decorates her house with those little precious moments figurines. It's my worst fear. Worse than scuba diving with sharks.

It's a good design, though. I'll vote for it later if it's fogged against some crappy designs at the end

Re: Trick or Treat


This is so well done, Draxxx. Really, the illustration is just marvelous, the composition is exquisite. It deserves to be in the fog.

Unfortunately, a shirt I can only wear once a year doesn't appeal to me. But that's me; plenty of people will want one.

Re: Trick or Treat

A few years ago Walmart or Target had a halloween bag with the same idea.Not the same drawing, but the spelling out of the words with the themed letters. I know it's not against the rules, but immediately I thought of that.

as a consumer and not a designer - it is really messy and frustrating. I don't want people staring at my tree ants just so they can "get it"

Yes indeed. How does Woot do their regular weekly selection? Do they just choose whatever random shirts they like? I hope this gets printed one way or another.
