Excellent artist spotlight here. I have to say that Robbie Lee is one of my top three favorite designers of all time. I own a few of these shirts, and when I get paid again on Thursday, I'll be adding to my collection.

Although, I have to say I would have loved to have seen "The Cycle of Life" (I think that's the water cycle one) printed again, maybe on a tote or a LW hoodie. I always refer to that design as my "happy mood" shirt because I can't help but feel good when I see and wear it.

Damnit, Woot! I can't wear anvil shirts, but I *adore* the Haunted Robot collab.

Maybe I'll buy one, then hang onto it until I develop the abilty to transfer my consciousness into a kickass android body that fits the shirt? [sigh]

This is COLOSSAL! I am so finally getting a lightweight hoodie. (It'll match my other two regular tees and the long sleeve tee, all Tin: Old Skool!) (But that doesn't necessarily mean I am obsessed with that design...does it?)

Congrats Robbie! This is the first artist spotlight, right? Couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy!

Awesome!!! When my friend Claude pointed me to woot to get a good deal on a roomba four years ago and I subsequently discovered shirt.woot, I never thought it would lead to anything like this. Huge thanks to the shirt.woot community for all the support over the years, and of course to shirt.woot for the honor of thinking of me for this sale.

Excellent choice woot!

I foresee myself buying at least one of these (that obese unicorn is so tempting, haha).

Have two Robbie Lee's at home. Definitely one of the all-time shirt.woot greats. I like that we can say this now. Like how The Beatles were one of the all-time great artists, Woot's got five years under its belts, and we can all drink brandy out of snifters and discuss who The Greats were/are.

I would've bought squeeze if it was on a hoodie. I think it was in the past and I missed it =( I just really don't need any more loose t-shirts.

Fabulous! I had to get The Night Shift for my uncle who is a night airplane mechanic. He has an awesome sense of humor and will totally love it. I don't feel as though I've put in enough night shifts to deserve it :/

forever fighting the urge to buy something just because it is cheap and cool...wait, it's cheap and cool, let me click that big yellow button!

That statement is redundant. And I LIKE ramyb designs.

Yay robots!

I loved fat unicorn, and so did my wife, and I recall Robbie trying to start something with a fat cowboy horse or something similar. I loved the idea of making the fat equine some sort of running gag (fat pegasus! fat clydesdale! fat shetland!), and I'm disappointed it didn't make it.

Also: robots. Squeeze is such an awesome shirt, and one of my son's favorite woots.

Congratulations, Robbie Lee! You deserve this spotlight!! Too bad this is a few months too late for me to be able to purchase anything. This would have been a budget buster before "the switch!"

Congratulations! I'm so glad that woot did this, because this gives those of us who were a little late in finding woot (and woot's talented artists) an opportunity to purchase some of their earlier designs and support them even more. Robbie, you have some amazing designs and I'm glad that woot has given you this great opportunity! Congrats.

Like I said in the odd shirt out thread, so much want this week! Why are the two best side sales yet happening in the same week! I'm already in danger of having to move out to the shed with my tshirts.

Rats! I would've bought multiples of the Spring-ATRON R.E.S.U.B., if it was offered. My son loved that shirt, but got bleach on it. That design was great, esp. on the light blue.

Sure you don't want to expand the choices in this Spotlight, Woot? Please? :D

One of my favorite artists! A lot of the designs would be awesome on posters.

Yee! Congrats on the spotlight! Tofu's one of my personal faves, even though it's not a part of the sale :D

Might just have to get a replacement Fat Unicorn, mine mysteriously got a couple holes in it (whether from the lab or from the unicorn, I'll never know...) and maybe Squeeze since I stupidly convinced myself not to get it when it first printed.

... and maybe all the other robot shirts too /headdesk

The Sleep of Reason is insane, I must get it. It's some Mario meets Edgar Allen Poe madness or something.
You Mean 10, showed that one to a networking friend of mine and he had to get it. All great designs.

All I have to say is

BEWARE THE LIGHTWEIGHT HOODIE!!!

I bought one in a different design expecting a hoodie that was on the lighter weight size.

Silly me.....

The hoodie was basically see through and the fit was EXTREMELY snug. The material reminded me of a well loved t-shirt - one wash before it ends up in either the dust rag bin or the trash. I expected much better for $35. I won't make that mistake again.

Actually it's Mario mashed up with an etching by Goya! It's called The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters: http://www.artsconnected.org/resource/67530/2/el-sue-o-de-la-raz-n-produce-monstruos-the-sleep-of-reason-produces-monsters-plate-43-from-los-caprichos

Congrats, Robbie! I was so happy to see this spotlight, and not because I get to say "I knew him before he was famous". This is so well deserved, and just proves that all those crazy hours putting these designs together were worth it. Shirt.woot is a good place today.
