I do so enjoy this moth... even more so than your original skull one.

Really beautiful design. Quick question though, is this supposed to be on the back of the t-shirt? Can woot do that?

It was intended to be a front print, but could go either way really. Yes woot can print on the front or back (not both in the derby though) but no derby design has won with a back print.

I'm glad you like it!

i like it, though am i the only one that thinks of this when they see it?

Stop voting for shirts that you would never buy or wear, it says "I'd want one" not "I like this"!

i really, really admire the work that went into this, and think the color is a good one for black . . . but i think the skull thing in the middle does suggest 'silence' just barely, so i'll have to say i agree.

There's always a first time!
I think this would be fabulous on the back also.

I second the back design idea.

Beautiful linework, art. You have my vote for sure. The way it's laid out, with such perfect symmetry, would make for an uber-wearable shirt.

Thanks all!

Yes, the design is the Death's Head Moth, Acherontia lachesis, which makes a cameo appearance in 'the silence of the lambs'.

Enjoy this shirt with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

Thanks, Andy. I'm rather fond of how this version came out with the halftoning. It radiates energy and pops off the shirt.

As a huge fan of "Silence of the Lambs", I'd love this shirt.
