Here's a large view:

There was another shirt entry that referenced Terry Bisson's fiction, but this one definitely reminds me of the short story "Bears Discover Fire."

Great design. GMV.

This is really well done, but for some reason the bears look like are plastic bears. Which gives an interesting look, to say the least! It's probably just me, but I've looked a few times now and keep feeling like I am looking at plastic toy bears. Anyway, still very nicely done!

I've looked at every single shirt and I want this one the most. I really hope it prints. Good luck!

Woah thank god someone else thinks the same way I do. The texture feels like those key chain trinkets!

This is really well done. Perfect blend of halftones and line. Good job. +1

I really like the design and it's very well done, but I don't like the fireworks. They sort of stick out like a sore thumb, and I don't think fireworks are shot off in most wooded areas for safety reasons hoho...

If they were looking up at a beautiful sky of Northern Lights, that would seal the deal for me and get my vote. Fireworks, not so much.

I love this! I think that the fireworks are awesome. I just wish it was getting more attention...anyways, congrats on a well executed design!

Where were you when I was working on it!? :P
If I submit this elsewhere, I'll definitely play around with that idea. I guess I just had my mind set on the 4th of July. Thanks!

Didn't see you posting on the forums when the topic was first announced or I'd have thrown in my two cents then.

I do love your designs though. Was rocking my CMYKF5 the other day!

Oh, i never post in the forums. Unfortunately I never have time for user feedback other than my wife and kids.

Thanks! My boss was out wearing her CMYKF5 and ran into someone else wearing it too. I wish she'd gotten a photo. I think that would've been a "Woot in the wild" first.

Like this alot, but I think it would be better without the fireworks. Also, they do kind of look plastic, which is OK cause the color and design are very well done.

Phew ok, I feel better! I was wondering why I couldn't see anything other than plastic bears. But it's still really well done.

I agree with someone wrote above... Northern lights (or shooting stars/meteors) instead of fireworks would improve the design as a whole 400% for me. Right now I can appreciate the great design, but wouldn't wear it - between the plastic look to the bears to them watching fireworks, doesn't feel natural/organic or something: ) But again, I still think the execution is very good.

I love this too and I rarely like shirts with tons of large halftones.

Great work, good luck!

Very cool. This seems like it's right up woot's alley. Despite the very respectable score, I'm really surprised that it didn't do better here. The execution of the halftones are flawless.
