This one's a bit more my style. I'm a bit shocked at how well my Tick-Tack-Toe one is doing. I hope you guys like this one too!

Guaranteed buy if it prints. One of the coolest bird t-shirt designs I've EVER seen...

This has a lovely painterly style and is a worthy successor to The Umbrellas. Amazing what you have done with what looks like four colors cmdixon. For the first time I can recall, I have an urge to wear lemon.

Thanks for all the support! I know using a lemon tee is a gamble, but I have to use what works best for the design. I'm really happy with how this one turned out, so I'm glad you guys are liking it!

Congratulations. You took perhaps THE most maligned blank color (this side of heather gray, anyways) and worked wonders with it. Your colors, as always, are astonishing. Super work.

Crazy gorgeous. Not big on lemon yellow , but I don't care. You always have such brilliant concepts, and you execute them so beautifully. GMV - my favorite in the fog right now.

Wow! I normally *hate* yellow, but I'm buying this if it prints.
I'm really impressed by this! <3

I'll go ahead and throw my accolades in here too. This is a wonderful design! Never in my life have I owned a yellow tee, but dammit if I wouldn't break that streak for this. It's simply too good not to.

Agreed. I have never bought a shirt from shirt.woot before, despite following the site via RSS for over a year. I would buy this shirt, though. I hope it becomes available, and perhaps the designer would be so kind as to PM me or e-mail me that it is up for sale, just in case I miss it in the RSS feed.
