It's fun to see how many people are trying halftones this week after the tutorial. This is my first time trying this shape.

Oh, I like that better! Regardless of title, I like the shirt. Death has such a cute expression!

Thanks! "Death has such a cute expression" would have been a good title too.

Yeah, I typically don't like grim reaper/skull/etc. shirts but one I can say that about...why yes!

Ape, I gotta tell ya - you have such a flair for expression. I see it week after week. It's truly a gift.

Now if one of the darn things would print!

*wanders away muttering to self...*

*shakes self, runs back*

Oh, GMV yet again!

*saunters away feeling better*

Thanks, I appreciate that. It would be nice to win for once.

It'd be cool if they did a "First Timers" derby for anyone who's never had a print. . . it might force people to pay attention to talented artists who haven't built a following yet. (Loved your Mark Twain shirt and would have bought it in a heartbeat.)

Didnt you just get a daily print? I'd argue that's a much better endorsement than a popularity contest.

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

Yes, but I believe in democracy too.

I never look at the artist when I vote on a shirt and my favorites are all over the place as far as voting numbers but I think this is a great idea.

I'd be interested in seeing how it plays out.

Love in the eyes of death! And the carnivorous plant... you made such a great comment here on the circle of life. Hope it moves up!

I took back my votes for everything that's currently in the Fog. Maybe that will help?

It's a great design and it works on theme and also differently than intended for people just seeing it without knowing the theme. Because of course Death would have a killer plant.

To me, it looks like Death's pupils are almost little hearts, and that's adorable. GMV.

I'm sad that I just saw this, but it's fantastic.

It looks as though Death is old and has no teeth, so he went out and grew some new ones!
