Ms. Arthur - thanks that means a lot coming from you.

Marz - thanks!

Copo - No text, fool! It's on blue, what more do you want?

Jewel - Oh noes. Then surely it will never win!
P.S. Bought your current GJ shirt the other day. So cute.

I love this, the textures are great, and I have trouble figuring out what is going on here, which is perfect.

It's mesmerising. I look forward to your designs every week BootsBoots, and I couldn't tell this was yours before checking out the the full image.

It feels like album artwork. Edgey, cool and slightly unsettling.

I will need to see this printed before I buy it, but seriously, it simply must win.

Honestly, I'm not sure how it would print either, since I've never done a design made up halftones like this, but it's got colors that I like so even if it ended up a horrible mess, at least it would be a aesthetically pleasing mess. And I will have learned my lesson.

Thanks everyone.

Whoa, this is a new side of Boots that I've never seen before. Crazy! But I guess crazy is kinda the point, isn't it? Good luck!

Madem Boots, you never sees to amaze me with your wymsical style. But this one blew my mind! There is so much going on in this, and yet looks so simple and balanced.

Honestly,I don't know why, but this is my favorite of your designs since "The choice was not hard"

Great stuff boots. For some reason it gives me a "Naked Lunch" vibe. You know, the guy with a typewriter for a head. Anyways, I was crazy enough BEFORE you people made all these crazy drawings, and I don't appreciate being driven even further down the hole. Thanks for that.

If it turns out splotchy, that would only add to the point of the shirt, no?

Looks like something David Cronenberg might dream up. That's pretty madass. Best of luck.

I could--but I'm baffled as to how.

*look at thumbnail*

"Holy cow, is that Boots?"

*click*

"Holy cow, that is Boots!"

The only thing I can think of that might've tipped me off is the reflections on the screens. I mean, that's the only thing that says BootsBoots to my conscious mind.

Clearly, this is reaching me on some level I can't purposely access. Therefore, I must vote for it.

It is like a cartoon version of the work of Chet Zar...he does amazingly dark twisted art.

Something about the color scheme hinted that it was boots to me, but yeah, this is a dramatic departure from her usually easily recognizable style. A truly stunning design, one that'd make for one hell of a conversation starter of a shirt.

Trying to obtain the cute-lover vote with threats to hurt kittens. Nice strategy.

Thanks for all the comments, everyone. Even though this totally wont print, I really feel good that it's appreciated.

There seems to be a remarkably large number of kittens dying, or in danger of dying because of this derby.

That said- this is amazingly wonderful

You had a design like this on your website if I recall. Loved it there and I still love it here.

Or, more precisely, because this is such great art, it literally makes a bad t-shirt. I would love to have a print of this, but I wouldn't wear it in my chest.

Funnily enough, I think it would make a good t-shirt.
