Nice design though, although I wonder a bit how it would look on a shirt for every wear.

As mentioned above, I think this fits very nicely in Woot's specification of "what to do when faced with a complete lack of motivation entirely." Up here in Oregon it's a bit chilly for a t-shirt most of the year so I think it will look great with an open plaid button-up.

I read it more a s persistence, beauty is revealed to those who wait for it.

I'd like this shirt more if it was a maze.

But as just a doodle it doesn't really hit me.

Or maybe if it was in a corner/edges and the middle was taken up by something boring. History, probably.

(I'd say math, but math is far more interesting)

Yeah, when I saw it my first though was. "Good Lord, how long would it take to run that Dungeon?"

Re: Sit, Zombie Dog, Sit (resub)



Do zombies count as pop culture? Not trying to tell anyone off or anything. Just seems like with the popularity of zombies in recent years it would be considered pop culture.

I told my husband this reminded me of Dune. He mentioned that the mice really need a second fish to effectively steer him.

I knew there were good reasons why I married him.

That was my original idea -- to have some evidence of homework in the upper left corner. Maybe a spelling test. Of course with no text allowed that killed that.

Ha! That'd be a fun alternate version -- designing dungeons while bored in class. I did that too!

Re: Jump For It




Today I got really unmotivated. I had too many bills comming and any money to pay for it. I can't complaint about other aspects of my life, but money is really an issue.

Anyway, all this is just to say that I came here to watch the run and your design really deserves to win this! Congrats, you're very talented, Patrick. GMV for sure.

Nothing is cuter than cats wearing winter clothes.

I LOVE your cats! I have one of your shirts, the one with all the cats piled under the umbrella, and it's my favorite! I wear it all the time!

After posting Following in Daddy's footsteps, I then had many more ideas for motivational designs, from 'knucks' to climbing a tree for fruit, as in Eve...then I remembered Erasmous, the fearless, hope yall like him.

I don't know how you do it. I thought I just loved all your shirts because they were cute, then silly-witty-clever, and now here comes one that is smart-clever and BEAUTIFUL. Your talent continually captures my attention.

And my vote. +1.

Is there a way for you to remove this submission so the votes get directed to that one? I'd hate to have it end up lower just because the votes get split.

Ditto! If this doesn't end up in the fog, I'd love to see it re-subbed sometime with the continents made of a (or more than 1) dragon.

Either way, it's a really cool (and true) depiction of what motivates.

The more I see this shirt, the more I love it. I hope it prints. My friend's birthday is coming up, and I bet he (like myself) would appreciate the colors and concept. I'd love for this to eventually land on a hoodie... ♥

Re: Waiting for Motivation



As someone who has filled notebook after notebook with similar creations, I had no problem whatsoever figuring out what this shirt had to do with motivation. A terrific job!
