Ok, here it is again- changed color and killed the ground and tree. I didn't like that tree anyway. Stupid tree.

I don't quite understand. A 10% tint? I didn't think we could use tints? I thought that they are spot colors and we had to use the pure color. Did I misunderstand them, or did they change that, or did I misunderstand you?

At 10% sounds like a tint, which you'd be correct, they don't do. You'll have to find a spot color that is similar to it or just use white. This may not be cause for a rejection though as I hear they might match it themselves with something similar.

Only people who have ever purchased something from a Woot site can vote. If you are a Wooter, you will see a tab at the top of the photo that says "I'd Want One". If it isn't there, you either aren't logged in, or need to Woot. And if you haven't Wooted, you really should consider checking out what it has to offer

Nice lightning! GMV!

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

What is this the beginning of?

"If drinking is bitter, change yourself to wine." -Rainer Maria Rilke

"Champagne is a very kind and friendly thing on a rainy night." -Isak Dinesen

A brush-fire, maybe. The exchange of electrons, certainly.

The entry title "It was a dark and stormy night..." is the opening to Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton's (has there ever been a sillier name?) 1830 novel Paul Clifford. The line was made increasingly famous by Shulz as Snoopy repeatedly begins his perpetually-beginning novel in the same way.




But all that's all available for digestion on Wikipedia. Really, I just wanted to draw some lighting. Lightning is cool... it's all bright and stuff.

And I just want to wear some lightning. I'll try and get you 200 votes, but it will be tough.

I have a feeling those halftones will show up awesome on a shirt. I'd wear this, and that's something I don't say about most of these shirts... I hope you find a way to print

This. Is. Awesome.

Pride thundered through my mind, body and soul in unison while navigating the deep and cavernous history of that notorious rapscallion Paul Clifford, who stands as father, lover and care giver of the coquettish and wanton scullery maid of literature, Lady Prose, draped in her mock-majestic purple apron, and I felt myself again reborn as a wannabe literary nerd.
