I hate driving. I especially hate driving on roads I'm not familiar with. Sometimes I see these yellow road signs and I have no idea what they are trying to tell me. This simple 1 color tee is to illustrate how lost one can feel on life's roads.

Thanks! One more gargleblaster I'm in the hotness menu for my first time! And 1 space away from the fog. I just want to touch the fog of war just once! *Fingers Crossed* This is a huge thrill for me.

I'm really proud of the distressing done on this design. I also am having a lot of fun solving all these mazes. So for both reasons, here is a detail shot:

Nice, One of the handful of shirts that actually feels like a t-shirt this time around.

I am a fan of the graphic treatment found on roadsigns. One look in the prederby thread and I knew I would be voting for this. I hope this prints because its hilarious and very wearable.

Wow! Thanks. Huge compliment! I really hope it prints too... I could really use the street-cred. I was upset to see the office space tee get rejected. I thought it was riding the gray area, but it was so well done. I would have bought that without hesitation, and walked around the office asking my co-workers, "Have you seen my stapler?" Thanks so much!

Oh my god. I clicked on the shirt thumbnail not knowing what to expect, and when I saw the whole thing I burst out in laughter. The only other shirt that I did that for is Rock, Paper, Dragon and that's my favorite woot shirt to date.

Voted for this, this HAS to print.

NEED THIS SHIRT! :D I love the artsy, pretty shirts, and I love the cute shirts, but it's SO NICE to see a design that's really simple, bold, and clever.

I really like the sign idea; very clever. I think I might have preferred just the single maze sign, but that's just me.

Good job.

I tried the single maze design and I didn't like it as much. I liked the idea of the signs telling a story of the road conditions. Thanks for the comment!

The shirt keeps growing on me, everytime I look at it it gets funnier and funnier. All wear are funny shirts and I would be delighted to add this to my collection.

Oh yeah. You go to another state and you're driving along and you see these signs and you're wondering what the heck they're trying to tell you. After you hit the patch of road they're warning about, you realize what the sign meant, but before that, you're completely baffled.

Thanks you so much to everyone who has left the kind remarks. It's been a huge thrill of mine to be in the fog the past few days. Though I really hope my design gets printed, if it doesn't, I can walk away from this derby happy my design did so well. Once again, thank you!

To me it says- "generally, I could go either way"... "my head is twisted", "my heart is a maze". Good positioning of the signs! Hope it prints! =)
