it's a camo fish. you aren't supposed to see it.

This is perfect. I'm an English major and its always fun to find new ways in which I'm geekier/cooler than my friends. I know so many people that would die for this shirt.

rather pathetic actually.



I agree that this isn't parody. Is pacman in the public domain? I recall a shirt with pumpking pacman and a ghost - would that have counted as parody?

Re: WAORCAIDNVUTAZMTWYCONMNDSDNEKSOK (resub)



Sorry to submit the same shirt twice but here it is. I think this version is much nicer. Got rid of some of that hand drawn nature of the old version. Vote for me and please any suggestions are welcome.

It's much too wearable to win. You should resubmit it on a heather grey shirt, and make it look like a cat, then you'd fog by morning. Good luck though. GMV.



*giggles*, thanks! I know your suggestion about the cat was a joke, but I'm very tempted to do it. But I'm actually an engineering student and I have quite a few projects due in the coming week. I spent too much time on this design anyway - I'm a Photoshop fanatic but I focus on web design, and I'm an amateur anyway (meaning I've never taken any real classes or worked professionally). I'm pretty poor with the pen tool, and I'm not the most talented artist.

I'd like to say that there are some pretty amazing designs out there though. I particularly like "Going Bananas". Cho's pi and cow are also cool, but that may be the engineer and the meat-eater in me, respectively - unless pi qualifies as meat? Does it?

This is Fashion Week in St. Louis and would be perfect for everyone involved in the event. They could all order it and utilize it for next year as the designated shirt!

I was thinking maybe "Tiger, Tiger Burning Bright" might be a good one to do with the tiger idea if I redo it. Not sure if it's worth it though.



It's possible that people are reacting to the fact that one of the original versions of this children's rhyme was "eeny meeny miny moe, catch a n****r by the toe" and can then be construed as racist.
I know you're not being racist at all--don't get me wrong! I just know the history of the rhyme since I did a paper on the whole "changes of oral tradition" theme, and people tend to shy away from anything that might be even *barely* construed as racist by the furthest possible stretch of the imagination...

BTW the colors are great, the tiger shape is great...I LOVE the Blake poem idea, though--it might be worth it!

klswoot wrote:Oh NO! I swear that wasn't on purpose. Owls Hoot. My daughter and I love owls. This design was done for her entertainment. The letters worked well for the overall shape. The backwards spelling of woot is entirely coincidental. There is absolutely no woot-related reference in this design even if the four letters can be found to spell out the website name. I'm sure other designs will have w-o-o and t.



I'm sure it's forgiveable.

Now I'm thinking about the phrase "too hot to hoot." Palindromes ftw!

I wonder if a palindrome submission would have done well...

Re: Blue Birds in Nest



I like how each bird is formed differently with the same letters, rather than just copy-and-pasted. I liked the red ones better though. Not sure why.

Excellent work either way.
