As a math teacher, I have 3 electric sharpeners in the back of my classroom. I swear, I must hear that sound in my sleep, it haunts my dreams!

I guess this proves why the electric sharpener didn't work when I jammed the pencil in. Sorry lil' dude.

I know I have seen this design somewhere for sure. It may have been when you got printed somewhere and your portfolio was listed or something. Have you entered it at threadless or similar site?

The problem I see with this shirt is the size/placement. I think the design comes way too close to the armpit; it will probably not look so hot when worn, especially on a girl's shirt.

Other than that I freaking love it. :D

Anything + Lumberjack = GMV

Being a proud owner of a lumberjack beard, this is a must have. Great work.

I may have shown it a bit too large on the tee. Im sure it could be sized down a tad and it would still have a nice presence on the shirt.

thanks for all the love peoples! cant believe Im still in the fog.

I'm in English teacher. I hate it when some kid (always a boy) stands there with a dopey grin and knows he's annoying the f&^% out of everyone.

Teacher here...probably couldn't pull off this shirt, but I can appreciate it without a doubt! Awesome illustration, awesome colors, awesome concept! My only criticism is the size of the design on the shirt, which I think you already addressed anyway...so good lookin' all around!

Yes, I agree. Just a tweak would probably fix it no problem. I'm unfamiliar with how that would work; would you have to completely resub in order to change just the size?

I really like this shirt, if it wins I think I'll buy it. This is my favourite of this derby, definitely deserves to be in the fog :D

Like others allready said, the size and placement could use a little tweaking. Other than that, it´s a great concept and very well illustrated.
