I had no friggin idea this was your work from the preview. I'm shocked and amazed, this is a nice new style from you! Great looking design.

This is stunning. I'm amazed at how textured and rich these shirts are with just two ink colors. Very cool.

Sweet design! You're so good at drawing lots of leaves. My hand would hurt for sure!

Yeah, I wasn't expecting you from the thumbnail, either. Totally stunning work.

I have to say that this is one of the first derby shirts that I'd really really love to wear.
Good Luck!

Re: Dragons Blow


Very nice! I can see that the colors aren't quite mirrored between the top and bottom -- is the linework a complete mirror?

The linework's mirrored. Yep!

Thanks again, everyone.

I like how you snuck monkeys in there under the guise of "smoke". Looks good. Gmv

Great job. Hopefully the Boots train doesn't derail this week.

I always love your leaves, Boots. Or in this case, your scales.

I don't think your mid-century art dragon (I mean duck) got enough votes. Maybe this dragon will get it done. Good luck!

Wow, Boots... not a fan of your work as a rule, but this! This is astounding. You couldn't have picked better colors, or better animals for such an intense design! I will gladly lay down my 10 when this goes up for sale next weekend.

Umm, I kind of hate to bring this up because this is a beautiful piece and in general I'm a big fan of yours, Boots..but, doesn't this design use more than the allowed 2 ink colors?

They're halftones of the two colors blending to make the peach color. I tried to pick shades of purple and yellow that would blend nicely.

Thanks everyone!
