I love the color choices here. Something about this design reminds me of pre-Columbian Mexican art.

Great art, I think the steam should be a little more subtle, and the whole thing a bit smaller on the shirt before I'd wear it.

Re: powered by coffee


yeah I think it would appeal to me more if it was half to 1/3 the current *size, and centered on the upper torso

That was the idea behind it. I wanted the smake emanating from the coffee to depict brazilian influence, kinda like aztecs. Glad u noticed it, thanks odysseyroc.

I absolutely love this design, I just think it's a little too large on the shirt for me.

@runnerfrog13, @volto. @irulan, u got me thinking. Though I personally prefer the present style, now I'm having second thoughts on a resub. Here's a preview-what do you think shd I go in for it?

Yeah I do like that better. Steam still too bold for my taste although im not sure how to fix that without ruining the composition. Maybe if it was just a shade darker, and half as tall, the owl would stand out more. Also if it was half was tall you could center it without it looking weird.

This is cool! Do the re-sub if you must but I think centered looks great. And it surely won't print THAT big anyway. But do what you thinks best. GMV

@omnitarian-I've been trying to steal that deep blue destroyer tee from my brother since I laid eyes on it, its beautiful work really.

Yeah, that's much better. I'm a chesty lass and if I wore the full-shirt spread in the comp all anyone would see as I walk by is a bunch of swirls and a coffee cup.

Great colors and concept.

I am not enough of a fan of owls nor coffee to need two owl-coffee shirts, but the colors and style here are very classy. Probably not something I'd pick for the top 3, but certainly something I wouldn't object to seeing there if it happened.

This is really, really cool. And, I LOVES coffeeee om nom nom. I wish the design was way smaller on the shirt though. I'd be afraid it would be drawing attention to the no-no area, hahaha. This design is great though. Best luck when in the fog!

I like what you have currently more. Only thing I would change is scale it down a little bit. Sometimes people have the shirt more bunched up aground the waste line and I feel like that would take away from the design, which I like.

Well, I personally like designs printed bigger like this. My favorite woot shirt so far is my "Sex Drugs" fake band shirt with the drummin' robot, and that thing takes up the entire shirt!

You got my vote for the print as-is.

Thanks bassanimation. For me too coffee is life, can't open my eyes in the morning without my cuppa & late nights when I'm on the drawing board are all powered by coffee;)

I really like this design as-is, the resub doesn't even compare. This ones just so bold and in your face. I want to force people to recognize my chemical addiction to caffeine.
Great work anyhow.

I prefer a side design for something like this as well. If you made it a little bit taller and skinnier and re-positioned it, then I'll be sold.

I actually kind of like the larger, centered design. It lets people know, 'hey. I like owls. And coffee. So what? Wanna fight about it?'

Re: powered by coffee


I really like the design as is. Alot of shirt.woot shirts have vast swaths of blank t-shirt sounding an icon-esque image or have swirly stuff up the side. This is big, bold, and eye-catching. Simple, but not too simple (IMAO). Would buy and wear.

And obviously "sounding" should be "surrounding"

Re: powered by coffee


I love the design and the colors, but it just doesn't seem to work on a shirt. Even the smaller, off-center resub doesn't do it for me. It would be pretty adorable on a coffee cup though!

I was trying to get that hypnotic look with the owl's eyes-wanting him to look something between dazed & high on caffiene. Thanx Blinkfive8two for noticing the details.

Should the 5 color beans also include the color of the wings and feet?

Im sad this fell out of the fog. It is one of the neatest, most graphically cool designs I've ever seen here. I hope you'll consider resubbing elsewhere . I really love this kind of crisp, almost logo-like art.

Plus..coffee is always gooood.
