Puppy!

Well, assuming you like puppies "which guards the gates of Hades, to prevent those who have crossed the river Styx from ever escaping."

Thanks wikipedia.

This shirt is full of awesome, gets my vote!

I think it would be nice if it was less... square-ish but still, looks great :D

Re: Hades National Park


The poster feel and the colors work really well for this design. I'm left feeling like I wish there was a little more to the design, but overall I think this works great.

Love it. I hope this one gets printed.

I have some of these old real National Park posters, and you did a great homage!

Really nicely done. Not sure if the icon completely does it justice - only reason I can think of as to why this doesn't have more votes than it does.

Thanks to you all for the votes and comments!

I'm aware of the boxiness of the corners, but I felt the rectangular design best conveyed the feeling of a vintage National Parks poster. No real way around it.

As for the thumbnail, I had to pick a crop with the most interest, though I do wish I could have conveyed more of the overall image without squishing it to incomprehensible size.

Again, thanks to all, and happy derby! ^_^

One of my friends just had a kid... any idea on the policies around dipping it in the river? (We're aware of the issue around heels already)

Child-dipping is available by reservation only in the designated child-dipping areas on the north bank of the river.
It is recommended you bring your own rope, net, or other dipping apparatus, and refer to the posted safety guidelines at the gates.
No lifeguard is on duty.
