Pure win. Almost feels like the shirt wouldn't be as good without somebody knowing the title tho.

I just don't get this at all... I like the artwork, but the reference is lost on me... Anyone care to explain? Thanks!

The whole thing is based off of the revolution fist gesture of defiance and unity. I have seen it used promoting an actual revolution, within Shepard Fairey art, all the way to promote Fender guitars and beer.

I incorporated the hot dog for a hot dog revolution. "Grab you dogs and fight the man/burger/vegetarian" The hot dog is, of course, excited about having the attention.

Basically it boils down to this - I drew a happy hot dog and it needed something else with it. In typical "way I think" fashion, I threw something random in the mix. When I design, I honestly do not know what it is going to end up as. Sometimes I start drawing a cupcake and end up with a robot. The ol' No. 2 just works in a weird way in my hand.

I really appreciate that you like my artwork. I hope that hot dog lovers through out the Woot community will enjoy the design.

Please share the design if you want. I would love to get more votes.
