this doesn't even look like the original painting, he's supposed to have an acoustic guitar

It's from the "Video games in art history" derby, where derbyists attempted to replicate the style of a particular art movement or a famous artist, while depicting something video-game related. Other entries from that derby in the double-take include the Lichtenstein-inspired "Fighters in Love" and the Klimt-inspired "After the Rescue."
That said, it fit that derby's theme perfectly, but this trope was done quite often in that derby. Not to say that this was a bad execution.

Seeing as riff's the one who designed it, I think he knows what he's talking about.

BLAHMCBLAH! So where have you been? You should message me sometime, I rarely check Tanga anymore and now that Pozy is pretty much dead I'm a sad, sad panda.

Anyway, this was a good idea for a shirt and something I probably would have designed if I was into shirt designing.

Woot doesn't really make the submitter nor poster's name standout. They could however use JavaScript to change the background color of a post by the submitter on his/her own item to something like yellow.

Alternatively submitters who post could assume that no one will know who they are when reading the post, and thus not make bad puns/jokes.

fave woot site: woot.com or Four Woots

I really like this design! It looks like it's not going to get a print here though. Are you going to submit this anywhere else?

Most likely I will just do a canvas print after woot's ownership expires. I'll make it available on my website but mostly it'll be for me since I particularly like this one
