I would check CafePress in about 60 days in Soothed By Rainfall's store.

What the hey... maybe my sig will help get votes (not to be self-important tho!)
I'll try to get the image out there just that little bit more, because I do want this one!

Come on voters!

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!

Thanks. I tried to go a different route. Although, it does have a leaf and mentions beavers. Canada, eh?

Yeah, the stamped effect is what makes it, IMHO... otherwise would be kind of iffy, so great design work in that regard. Also helps it kind of look like a raked leaf pile; so makes me think of autumn.

If woot is going to apply the rule that you used another shirt to get an idea then they need to reject the Periodic table. Dmitri Mendeleev designed / developed that years ago so I would consider that a knock off as well.



Agreed, I've also seen many many shirts with polar bears and maple leaves, so how can the shirts in the fog not be rejected?

I loved this shirt.

I hope this doesn't disappoint you, but unlike mr. malkmus, I don't design with my back to my audience.

Still, cool that he's got something new out. Pavement aren't a band I got too deeply in, but they have a lot of stuff I do like.

The belly of the plane appears to have gradients on my screen, and I'm hoping that's because the colors are close together.



I'll have to give you a definitive answer on the exact colors later, but I can assure you there are no gradients. All the colors are separated.

Re: Lake Ontario Sunset



The Maple Leaf (Acer rubrum)

There are ten maple species in Canada, but it is the sugar maple that is most commonly thought of as our national tree. A stylized version of its 5-lobed leaf - one of the country’s most recognizable icons - adorns the Canadian flag. Its leaves are 7 to 13 cm in diameter, and like all maples turn a colourful red-gold in the fall. The bark of the young sugar maple is smooth, gray-brown but turns scaly and furrowed with maturity.
The sugar maple is known the world over as the source of the sweet sap used in the production of maple syrup – a unique Canadian delicacy. Each spring this sap is collected from the trees and boiled to produce maple syrup, some of which is further evaporated to create maple sugar. [34 liters of sap = 1 liter of syrup or 3.6 kg of sugar]

The Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) is another unofficial symbol of Canada

Re: Fireweed - Flower of the Yukon



Fireweed

(Epilobium angustifolium

The Yukon chose the fireweed as its floral emblem in 1957. The fireweed is a tall plant with many small, dark pink flowers. It grows in places like clearings or next to roads and rivers. It is called “fireweed” because it is one of the first plants to grow after a fire.

Thanks for the information.

Why am I hungry for maple syrup all of a sudden? :-)

Re: Northern Lights (Take II)



Can't stand to wait to see how this shirt does? You can adopt a polar bear RIGHT NOW at the World Wildlife Federation - Canada website, and get a toy bear to bout, I mean boot. You can help real polar bears survive global warming, pollution and out of season hunting with your contibution.

And then vote for this shirt to promote the bear's natural habitat.

Well, for those of you who like to withhold your votes until as late as you can, this is your time to shine. There's been a heated contest all through the week, but now it comes down to the last 24 hours before voting closes.

Look carefully at those in contention and make your choice. Decide which shirt you want to see make it to print and throw your support behind it... there are a ton of interesting shirts out there but only three can make it to the printing stage (unless we get lucky and have a tie). It's time to pick your pony and let your voice be heard. This is the time, this is the place... don't wait any longer or you might get stuck with shirts you don't care for.

And that would, you know, really stink.

Thanks to all my supporters and to my worthy competitors who have been setting the bar high for me, and who have been fascinating, strong, and (for the most part) kind. I can't say who will come out on top, but I'm happy to have run the race. I won't be around most of today to push my design, so I hope I've got enough momentum going to soar into third place in time for printing. Thanks to all of you, and to Woot as well.

This is probably considered off-topic.
If this was entered earlier, Joel would probably rejected this. Since this is late in the derby, you are probably safe.
