Great take, love the detail and attention. Also very wearable, which isn't always the case with the coolest designs.

Totally agree! A lot of the designs I see here would make much better posters that shirts.

An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

Maybe I've been watching too much dragonball lately, but Tybalt looks like Vegeta with that spiky hair and widow's peak. Ophelia is my favourite - you picked the best one for the detail image for sure. Great design!

Ha ha he was caught without a character whose name starts with 'Z'...though he in no way represents the artist in this instance, and any sense of being caught out is purely coincidental...*koff koff*

The character work on this is fantastic. Cute expressive and no dead eyes in the group, well except for poor Yorick (the bears a little suspicious too but I'll let it pass ) Yup great work!

Haha I just noticed how much Kate looks like a female version of Stewie

Re: Shakespeare A-Z


I wasn't looking forward to this design at the thumbnail, expecting something along the lines of the (mercifully unprinted) "Things From Japan". Then I saw the full design, and I have to say, it won me over. While I don't think I'll be buying it if it prints, it is nevertheless filled with amusing and charming little details that make it work really well. I should've known from the Ophelia in a fish bowl. Nice job!

Maybe someone already mentioned this, but Quintus wasn't baked into a meat pie...Chiron and Demetrius were. But I suppose it makes Quintus stand out from the Titus play to characterize him in the meatpie. Still a lovely design.

I almost didn't full-view this shirt because the thumbnail didn't appeal to me very much... but I am sure glad I did! The amount of little details and the expressions on the character's faces are great! You did a wonderful job (even despite the problem letters). I hope this prints!

Exactly! Like the problem plays, my problem letter is a tad ambiguous and perhaps not as strong as the others...but future generations will look upon my Q and find new meaning in it ;)

What about Peter QUINCE? I have to say, I like this shirt too, but having Quintus in the meatpie is a sticking point with me. I'm sure it's to late in the voting for a change.. but great art work.

The artist liked the design best on cream. That's plenty reason enough.

It's not tan, it's creme. And I assume it's on creme so they didn't need to sacrifice one of the 6 colors max for the skin tone.

Ah this is neat. I really like that you've covered so many of his players and the style on these guys is really appealing to me. Good job.

I sort of wish it was on a different color shirt but that's more a minor quibble with light AA blanks showing my bra off then your design. =[ Good Luck! GMV!

The latter, I suppose. They've been as far as a month behind on HMs in the past, and once they didn't even post them. They just included their choices in the Double-Take, leaving wooters to figure out the honorees on their own.

This shirt did print. It even reprinted at one point. It is currently not for sale, though woot may always choose to reprint it again for a side sale. Then again, woot may choose to never reprint it. It's not in print right now, which is the important point.
There seems to be one Men's Large available on teetrade.org. Otherwise, you may wish to ask in the Random Shirt Trade Center Thread.

No way to tell. By my estimation there are currently 1800 'woot shirts' that have printed, and likely another 10,000 that haven't. They reprint around 10 a week, so at some point in the next 3 years it has a decent chance of reprinting.
