You can halftone over the gold, just don't use the gold in halftones.
Also, don't feel like you need to use it just because you can.

move along

This idea has been sitting in my brain for months. I think a touch of gold ink would be perfect! Vote if you love The Outsiders! Vote if you love ponies! Let's do it for Johnny!



Classic book! love this take on this line. Dating myself but I used use this as my catch phrase growing up!

How? It's the same joke. And I've seen several different shirt designs along this line. I'm not saying you didn't come up with it on your own but it's not a new idea.

And yeah, implied sex is borderline. Woot has let stuff worse than this slide so we'll see.

This is nice, but it is really close to violating a few copyrights, if it doesn't outright.

Well I made them a bit faint to those details faded into the background - there for those who want them but not so conspicuous for those overall simplicity of everything!

Thanks again for your encouragement!

Wow, we had a similar idea.

I like it! I can imagine both our tiny dragons fighting over a tiny pile of gold or something.

How about that it's a copyrighted character from the Mel Brooks movie "Spaceballs"? I'm sure Mel would get a kick out of it, but I'm not so sure his lawyers would.

Re: Tiny Hoarder



This design is adorable, but I wish it were a bit smaller on the shirt. I think big images are unattractive, and especially with all the coins being shiny gold I think it would look a bit garish. It still has my vote though.

Re: Dirty Harey



Seeing as how the rabbit is using the other limb as a holding device, it would bugs me too much by thinking that the shot off limb is a lucky rabbit hand and not a lucky rabbit's foot.

that was fun while it lasted!

It does have "All the Glitters... isn't Worth it!" as text though.

Actually, I agree that the shirt doesn't need the text.

CFDunbar, you might consider submitting a 2nd version without the text to see how it would fare vote-wise.

Re: Liquid Gold



Happy New Year! Yeah, whatever, we're a little late, but 2012 IS the year of the dragon. Signifying energy and power, the dragon brings drama and unpredictability to the world (maybe it's his fault we have an overabundance of reality TV?).

Our dragon is made of liquid gold. Coiling, sinuous, unpredictable. Let's hope he brings you a little luck and a lot of good fortune this year.

Here's the big one!
