It's not all about speed any more. Now Aussies are taking it to the next level - salon style.

This is six colors on a cream tee, see a BIG VERSION here!


Thanks for looking, please vote if you like this design. ^__^

I like it...but nothing about it makes me think 'Australia'. :/

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Having raised sheep for over 15 years, I can honestly say none of mine were ever that stylish. If only they were... * wistful sigh *

Haha, thanks!

Sheep shearing has real cultural significance in Australia - in contests, and of course as part of their agricultural history. I didn't want to go for a stereotypical idea this week. ^_^

I love how the beehive looks like ram horns. Nice touch.

HA! I LOVE this! Your shading is really awesome too. I like how the hair looks sort of see through.

You'll find that most Australian folk songs are about criminals and sheep-shearing.

Hmm Sheep are a New Zealand thing and this would offend any kiwi seeing "sheep" under an aussie derby.Def no vote from me ( since im kiwi lol )

Clever and unusual take on the theme. And joemail11's post confirms that sheep and shearing are a part of Aussie lore. Works for me! +1

Thanks everyone!

I was thinking this was another example of Spiritgreen's slow descent into madness, but if you guys like it then I must be okay.

:P

I think you're way past okay, in one direction or the other. If this prints I can send one to my Scotaholic friends; they have sheep who could use some styling.
