Thanks so much for the kind words. I must admit that not all of my designs take as much drawing effort as this one did. My Canadian shirt was one of these. Despite the simplicity of the drawing part, though, it took me hours to get all the leaves exactly where I wanted them... I probably could have drawn it on paper, inked it, scanned it, and cleaned it up in the time it took me to arrange all those leaves in photoshop. It would've made it to printing too, had Enin not drawn an even more popular leaf than my own. :-)

It would be at least as different from Citizenship as Greed was from Consumerism, and it could be paired with side deals for a charity of the designer's choice. Might be interesting all around, though I wager we'd only see the most popular charities, not the best shirts.
I'm all for that idea. In fact, I'd happily design a shirt for the theme of charity, giving all the proceeds to a charity of my choice. I'd be much more enthusiastic about that topic than I was about greed, (which you could probably see in the lackluster entry I submitted for that one).
