i am the designer of this shirt...
It is unfortunate that we can't see the EXACT date this shirt was posted on redbubble.com but judging by the forum comments under the shirt, it might have been added 18 days ago. (the oldest comment)
the timeline was:
1 - 8/3/2011 - i started designing the shirt (the date "Created" of the original vector file, when i right click the file and hit properties)
2 - 8/17/2011 - submitted the design to woot sometime around august 17th or 18th. (you don't get an email confirmation when you submit a shirt, so i am basing that date on the date-created info on the jpg preview i sent them)
3 - 8/24/2011 - woot contacted me saying they will be running the shirt - (quote from the email): "There may be a delay of some weeks before we are able to find a spot for your design, but I will go ahead and send your contract in the next few days. "
4 - 8/25/2011 - i uploaded the file design and filled out the contract with woot.
It is very possible that my design was already in woots hands before the redbubble.com version of the shirt concept ever was posted. ( Although i am making the assumption that people commented the first day it went up.)
I am posting this because despite the similarity of this design to mine, i believe that there is enough evidence to suggest i didn't copy another artists work.
It is merely a funny idea 2 artists had, independently of each other about the BEST TVSHOW EVER.
sorry for this mini-novel ... i just wanted to vehemently contradict any claim that i stole another artists work, offering as much evidence as i can.
Stealing a design is IGNORANT, and you will get busted. I looked around the web before i sent it to woot and never found the idea anywhere.
For the record....
