Very cute, and great idea. :D I'll be in for one if it wins (and it looks like it's on track ).

It reminds me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdUUx5FdySs xD Probably anyone who hasn't seen this video will vote for this shirt after seeing it. ;O

This is great! One of my ideas was to draw a sad kiwi bird looking at a flying airplane or a hang-glider. I am glad I did not try because your kiwi is awesome!

I sense a sellout in your future

Glad to see cute animals represented in the fog, even if it's not from me, haha- But really, this is great. I almost don't feel bad for the bird, because the fruit looks so delicious and when I look at this picture I just want to go eat a kiwi. Is that very strange?

I might have to get one (when) this prints...hmm

I don't think so.

Kiwi (the fruit) = yummy
And of course theinfinityloop made it look so sweet and juicy...

Mmmm...now I want one!

Aww, the Kiwi bird doesn't understand.

I'm not entirely sure if I would order one, but I likely would, and either way, you got my vote.

Ode to the Kiwi by eHalcyon

Oh Kiwi, thou art round and brown,
how beautiful be ye.
'Tis certain that a golden crown
would match so perfectly!
And purple robes fit for a king
might garb thine feathered frame!
No greater flightless bird did sing,
O Kiwi of acclaim!
And Kiwi, thou art green at heart
or golden like the sun.
'Tis fragrant when thine soul imparts
perfume matched not by one!
And tangy sweet to taste I know,
thou art utmost preferred.
O Kiwi, how I love you so,
Kiwi! Both fruit and bird.

I'm glad you like it. They're having an effect in regards to revealing to me that cute is popular right now. Seeing as this was my very first entry, it's probably safe to say that cute isn't a new style for me. L OL. I just haven't had success with it in the past.

I don't think being cute is responsible for the shirt's popularity. For me it's a funny, cleverly depicted scenario. You have to be creative and talented to do a spectacular striking design, but that's just a way for the artist to show off. People wearing a shirt (90% +) don't give a koi how talented the artist who designed it is. When they wear the shirt they want others to react to it. Funny or clever shirt designs are probably the most popular. It makes sense that everyone likes your kiwi.

That vid was my initial thought to it too, seki (although this kiwi's wings are MUCH better than the nubs in the youtube vid). I have seen that Kiwi! vid repeatedly over the last year an a half or so; it makes my wife cry every time!

WOW great shirt, great poem. This has to be number one, everytime I pop on the site, which is at least three times a day, this is number one for the last three hours, so while I am not an official tallier like some sites, my unscientific and unemployed mind say this has to be number one. Now hopefully I get one at the ten dollar price, before they sell out. Yeah I'm making that prediction.
