The urge to break free of conformity can inspire dramatic change. Thanks go to the inspiration of M.C.Escher and the Beastie Boys.

Those tessellated fish look extremely dismayed about something.

Utterly beautiful, Pixel. One of the best entries I've seen in a long time as far as purely wonderful art and execution. The details on the fish are amazing. +1, and if it doesn't make it here, it HAS to print somewhere!

Jaw-dropping WOW. You've got the right not to sleep til Brooklyn.
This is epic and a hands-don.wn must have for me. If Woot doesn't print it, sub elsewhere. I NEED.

Funny quote to use paigeg, since I stayed up all night to get it done.
The response to this design has really surprised me and all the favourable comments are very humbling. Thanks to each one of you.

Follow the link to a bonus wallpaper of the fish pattern I created for the design. Laboratory testing of the wallpaper lead to eye-strain, lost icons and deep empathy for unhappy fish.

Love the design but I can't help but feel this would look much nicer on a lighter background.

I totally agree with Pixelpants. I like the deeper meaning of this tee. NICE!

Re: Another Dimension


Really nice work on this one pixel. I like the contrast between the the super clean graphic lines of the fish pattern and the much looser organic flowing lines of the main fish that really add to the movement of the piece. The background with its business detracts slightly from the main fish but this is still excellent work. I too wonder what it may have lloked like on a lighter shirt, maybe even the light silver from AA (please woot get that color soon). Again great job +1

My eyes kept trying to make that wallpaper into one of those designs where you unfocus your eyes and see a 3-D picture! I really want this one, so hoping it prints, love pretty fish designs!

This has some of the best artwork on a shirt that I've seen in a while. I would love to have this as a poster though instead of a shirt, as many before have said. You deserve every compliment you get about this design.

+1 with the force of 1000 suns.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • I'm very shallow and empty and I have no ideas and nothing interesting to say.

Thanks ThatRobert and LocustPR. Best Losers are always a welcome surprise and another level of recognition within the woot community. It's also a way of discovering good designs I might have missed otherwise.
The way people have supported this design has been much appreciated.

Man, this is getting robbed. At least it got a Best Loser. Holler if it prints elsewhere, 'kay?

Why is it that this shirt is always on the top of the "new hotness" when I look, yet it still doesn't climb up into the fog? This is the only shirt in the derby that I actually want! *grumble* Regardless, good job and the design

This design deserves to reach a "higher dimension." I want to see it swimming strong against the current of votes and breaking free into the atmosphere!
