Love. I think you've really got the spirit of this category here - the whole "whimsical at the expense of utility" thing is something I encounter daily amongst my beloved, silly hipster friends.

As mentioned in the pre-derby thread, I think the silhouettes of the bikes under water are a brilliant touch, and really make this design. Fantastic!

Brilliant. I saw you working on this earlier but hadn't seen it all come together until now.

Awesome stuff. :D

because it aims for an actually-amusing concept which understands hipsters slightly more than "lol they wear glasses," while also being creative enough that a hipster could laugh at themselves enough to wear it.

In pushing for a creative idea, roger has cut off his chances of getting printed. I'd rather mourn that than see him do what others do weekly for the sake of a win.

The fog makes me sad. This shirt *so* deserves a printing.

  • 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.
  • Wait, I'm wrong -- should've done better than this; please, I'll be strong -- I'm finding it hard to resist.
