Nice design. Great use of bright colors and I always like a turtle design.

I don't know if you have any knowledge of Terry Pratchett, but whenever I hear of the turtle with the world on its back (originally a hindu legend iirc), I can't help but think of Terry Pratchett, so I hope this gets top 3 just for that :P I will buy one xD

And I'll just leave this here...hope I don't get in trouble for it xD

"See... Great A'Tuin the turtle comes, swimming slowly through the interstellar gulf, hydrogen frost on his ponderous limbs, his huge and ancient shell pocked with meteor craters. Through sea-sized eyes that are crusted with rheum and asteroid dust He stares fixedly at the Destination.

In a brain bigger than a city, with geological slowness, He thinks only of the Weight.

Most of the weight is of course accounted for by Berilia, Tubul, Great T'Phon and Jerakeen, the four giant elephants upon whose broad and star-tanned shoulders the disc of the World rests, garlanded by the long waterfall at its vast circumference and domed by the baby-blue vault of Heaven.

Astropsychology has been, as yet, unable to establish what they think about..." Terry Pratchett, The Colour Of Magic (London: Corgi, 1985), p.7

I love it. Partially because I sing in the Turtle Creek Chorale and I'd love to have one!

Where did your inspiration come from? I think it's lovely.

My boyfriend is a turtle fanatic. He got me a gorgeous tutle necklace that I always wear. The necklace is what gave me the idea.

Your boyfriend sounds like a decent fellow.

We just spent time in the Carolina's where loggerhead turtles are protected. My son got a fabulous "turtle patrol" t-shirt, but they didn't have a turtle shirt in grownup sizes that were the least bit tempting. I would buy this one in a second. Plus , there's the whole philosophical, literary, "Turtles all the way down" aspect to your shirt. Love it...good luck!
