Sometimes you strike gold... and sometimes you dig up pyrite. I was a nerdy kid with a rock collection, so this derby theme automatically made me think of pyrite - otherwise known as fools gold. 6 colors on baby blue. Enjoy.

Oh and also, a quick thank you to orabbit for encouraging me to take this design a step further with the shovel and background

I love this shirt! It reminds me of panning for gold near a cave when I was little. Sadly I experienced the same frustration, hah! The only thing that is bothering me is the cloud line. Was it meant to be cut off like that?

I would say that is the horizon. From top to bottom in the background you've got sky, sea, beach.

Yeah that was the idea. I tried to come up with something better to show the differentiation between sea and sky... but without using excessive halftones I couldn't come up with a way. I settled on clouds creating a horizon line... I hope it is not TOO bothersome. Thanks for stopping by
