Thank you for all of your votes!!

This is a classic example of how EVERY vote counts. "Life Renewed" won third place by ONE vote!! Thank you everyone! So far I'm keeping up with my New Year's Resolution. I've made my January quota. It's up for sale at Shirt.Woot. Snag it today for $10, or $15 after today.

I've got a couple of other subs up for the current Derby, "Alternate History." With the combination of Woot being late posting the theme and me just not being very good with history, it took me forever to come up with something. John was being silly and suggested "Boston Butt Party". After laughing for five minutes straight, I began working on it.

I soon found out though that unfortunately, Boston Butt must only be a southern recipe, 'cause people weren't getting the pun. It's a delicious and fattening pork roast, in case you didn't know.

Anyway, after spending about 4 hours on it, I quit. Then I decided on doing "Salem Beauty Pageants." I saw a great portfolio a while back of featured Tee Fury Artist, Leon Ryan and wanted to try out his style--particulary of this piece of his. It's a fun and cheerful style, but I think I need to practice because it took me eight hours to do. O.O

In the mean time, tee shirt connoisseur AdderXYU contacted me to suggest I do Van Gogh with an injured eye instead of ear. Adder publishes the very informative blog SingulariTee, so I knew he knew what he was talking about. I took him up on it. It turned out to be a great idea, because it's doing very well right now. Thanks Adder!!

You can check out both "Salem Beauty Pageants" and "Vincent's Alternative" on the top left side over there. Again, thank you everyone for your votes, comments, and encouragement!
