Okay, sorta big news, I've entered designbyhumans.com's annual $10,000 contest, or as we like to call it the DBH 10k. Last year I came in at 4th place (technically last place, haha) and I won $1,000. That was sweet. This year I'm hoping I can go further if not win the shebang.

I've redesigned and entered an old favorite that a lot people seem to like

I'd really appreciate your vote, here's the link: http://www.designbyhumans.com/vote/detail/78104

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! Haha. As part of my promotion, I'm going to give away 3 DBH shirts, plus a signed print of the artwork to whoever leaves the best comment on the design's page. What do I mean by best comment? Well some of my favorites so far have been:
"thanks to the cerbearus shirt I can now divide by zero!"
"the only thing more epic than exploding a nuclear power plant and walking away without even looking back at the blast with an AK47 slung over your shoulder and a smokin hot chick beside you is doing that whilst wearing this shirt"
"This shirt made me smile,pee myself a little and break out in the charleston all at once."

Haha, so, yeah. The way this contest works is the submissions with the most votes will advance to the top 20, their votes will be reset to 0 then whoever gets the most votes in the week will advance to the top 10, votes reset to 0, then another week of voting til it gets to the top 5, then one last week of voting to determine the number 1. It's kinda intense, it's like the American Idol for t-shirt designers, haha.

I'd appreciate any help.

Stray, I love your designs, but man, I don't wear printed tees like I used to.
I'm plus-sized, and the men's tees hit me in the wrong place, and the women's tees are too small.

If someone could do a blank tee shirt like the vee-necks or scoop necks at Target, I'd be buying a lot more tees. They're substantial, but have a good fit.

That might be something to keep in mind as you move on in the tee-design business.

I hear you, I wish I had more control over that sort of thing. It's definitely something I'd keep in mind if I ever planned to print my own shirts.

Well I made it to the top 24, so that means I'm a little closer to 10,000 dollars. I'd really really appreciate your vote. Also, I made this video:

Um, I'm confused - I went through tons of pages and still didn't come upon yours. Maybe I went too fast. It wasn't on the first couple of pages, and there didn't seem to be just 24 tee designs presented, there were dozens.
Can you give us a hint and tell us what page yours is on? :puzzled:

It seemed to work okay in the first round. Sorry you didn't win, Stray.
:(
Hope your dog ran away so you couldn't kill it. :?
