Of the two collage of silhouettes, I like this one much better. It has more coherence outside of the derby theme.

Thanks for the feedback, pollenator77; I came up with this design a couple of weeks ago and decided it'd work for this derby. :-)

I like the idea, but it's much to boxy for my tastes.

I really do wish this had more votes. But perhaps we can hope for an HM? :D

Well as an astrophysics major...I *still* really like this shirt. Don't understand why it doesn't have more votes...

Aw, what happened to "from terrific Wisconsin"? It was so, so true.

I love this shirt; great idea! It is a bit boxy, a more organic shape might come across more like his imagination. Still gmv, always looking for shirts to wear to work. This one would be a great discussion starter!

Edit: Hah, on second thought, maybe I wouldn't actually WEAR it to work. Probably shouldn't encourage seventh graders to stare at my chest to figure out the references...

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • Take a bite of my heart tonight.
