This is a great design. Here, have my vote.
Though I do think it would be even better with only one raven (or is the other supposed to be the eagle?) and without hammer and helmet. I think you do not need symbols to represent all parts of the story - I think a little simplified would just look better as a design.

I appreciate the dual ravens of Thought and Memory.

I know I'm missing something obvious, but how do I vote?

That's what I was thinking too... While I generally agree on the less is more angle, on this piece I think the extra details bring it home...

You have to have bought a shirt from shirt.woot before in order to vote on the derby entries.

This is really stunning -- I love the woot shirts that are more than a gag.

I know this is nit picky, but the top bird is the eagle that lives at the top of the tree of life and bickers with the serpent, so really there's only one raven. I would love to see two, both Thought and Memory. And the eagle a bit bigger and more engaged with the serpent. And also a solid gold potty. And a pony.

You know what I love beyond all rational thought? The way the tail curves up and becomes one of the branches of the tree. Sneaky serpent!

Haha, I haven't noticed that! That really is a cool detail.

How can you be so sure about the eagle though? I thought the same at first too, but it does look more like another raven to me. I hadn't thought of Hugin and Munin before, but it would also make sense. Seeing the hammer and helmet, it would also follow the same pattern of symbolism.

Brilliant. The strong layout packs a punch even from a distance.

The colour scheme for this is incredibly vibrant and deep, and the design itself is beautifully balanced, referenced, and just plain beautiful. You absolutely have my vote now and my purchase if (WHEN!) it prints.

(It also helps that I've found out that I'm a quarter Norwegian and so am totally going for the whole "I'm a badass Norse Viking and I'm gonna superficially embrace my irrelevant ethnic background so haaaard, Eff Yeah!1!!" kind of silly thing. Your design fulfills my need for gorgeous cultural validation things.)

Hah, I'm even worse! I'm only 1/8 Swedish and I swear I feel the call of the ancient Norse!

It's totally not all in my head!
