First post! Awesome job Loopy! I love the concept and the power squid just looks cool! 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.

Hahaha, this is great. Woot should sell more Power Squids the same day as this.

This woot is always sold out when I come across it. Maybe the shirt will sell out too!

This looks great. I just hope it doesn't incurr the wrath of the rejectorator for being too woot related.

Fantastic original design. Excellent idea, loop.

The only other thing I have to add is that I love your use of negative space in your designs. Quite a few of your tees from both here and TF are my favourites as they are stunning illos, yet feel like practically no ink on the tees. Love it.

Love the play on the "Squid" style surge protectors. Great creativity. Wish I could think on that level.

Very cute. The power indicators on the sides of the eels are a nice touch.

Very slick. I like the sad one that's trying to make it up to get recharged.

I have to have this shirt. Believe it or not, my cousin invented the Power Squid. His name is Chris Hawker. Look it up.

How is this not woot related? If I hadn't see the power-squids before on the main woot site, I'm not sure I would get this or find it as funny as I do. Great shirt, great illustration, but I don't think it is within the rules. Unfortunately, I don't see this as any different than putting a leak-frog on the shirt.

You know that these things are sold everywhere right? These aren't just woot exclusives.

Obviously - there are very few things that woot sells exclusively. My point is, and I can only speak for myself, that I would not find this shirt as funny if not for the relation to the main woot site. I wouldn't know this thing is actually called a power squid. Who know, maybe if I didn't know what this thing was, I might actually find the shirt more clever.

@SpastasticNomadic - Thank you! I'm glad you like the negative space. Oh and thanks for supporting Gamer Mother in your sig! She needs more love like that.

@mjc613 - Thanks for the shout out about Uneetee!

@kinzoku - I'm glad you like those. I was a little worried they would be too silly looking.

@elwayman - That's awesome!

@dsatele - I think the first place I saw a Power Squid was at Walmart. I don't keep up with Woot as much as I do Shirt.Woot, so I didn't even consciously make a Woot reference.

Thanks for the votes and the comments guys!

My Go-goodness. This design. So awesome.

I like the way the eels seem to be captured in motion. The general concept scores as well.

I just don't understand how this is not winning...I'll be so sad if I don't get to buy this shirt.

Really nice. I didn't want to like this. I tried to hate it. But in the end, I still love it. Now I just hate you for making me love it, when I wanted so badly to hate it.

P.S. I love you.

Alas, unlike some others, I regret that I have but one vote to give for this design.

Re: Eel Charging Station


This shirt needs to get printed elsewhere ASAP if it doesn't get HM. This design is way better than most of the fog, for sure. I'd put it at #2 or #3 of all the shirts, at the very worst.

Re: Eel Charging Station


Why I'm sad:

It's not overly cute
It's really clever
It's executed perfectly
It's not a concept retread
It's not gonna get printed tomorrow.

UNFAIR.
