Here are two of the other designs I submitted to shirt.woot that inexplicably didn't make the cut :
 


 
What art director  in their right mind could possibly reject these?

the world is not ready for self-identifying shirts and owl-headed folk :(

Clearly, that art director must, indeed, *not* be in their right mind!

I think I like these better than the shirt they picked. They dont know what they're missing out on!

I'd have bought them both (especially if the antromorphic T-Shirt would also have an "teehee" in it's world bubble).
Find another distributor who is willing to sell them and I'll buy them!
Maybe you could make a posting in your Facebook group (which you should do anyways more often), asking who is interested. If you get enough responses they could probably put them in stock also (even though I would prefer a company in europe...)

I was *this close* to making the talking t-shirt say 'teehee'. I guess that's why it was rejected.

Makes perfect sense! Why settle for something without a teehee in it? I think we all know what you gotta do now :)

But honestly, I really would like to buy this two Shirts (maybe even more... you should create your own brand ;) ). They both have the randomness and sillyness I love about the "NeurosugeryKit" and "Shoe"-TShirts (The chosen owl-Shirts lacks a bit in this regard in my opinion).
Anything we fans can do to see them get printed anyway? I'd even wear them again in front of a camera while doing experiments :).

They are too beautiful to be massed produced. The Art Director was saving your art from being devalued from their lesser quality t-shirt productions.

The 'sentient' t-shirt design is brilliant!

It reminded me of the old Oink! comic strip 'Hector Vector and his talking T-shirt', although this chap looks slighty more chirpy than the one poor Hector had to wear.

Great stuff!
