dancing time tee-shirt by cleanup dancing time tee-shirt by cleanup
My submission for the Clothing Contest. Wish me luck. :) I hope the judges like it. It's one of the few "humorous" t-shirt submissions out there.

While the shirt design didn't take an outrageous amount of time, the idea did, and so did the drawings/representations. Photoshop CS, but since it was text-based, I was able to give it massive size that almost caused my computer to crash. :)

Originally it was Chinese text. I don't know where, but I picked up the stereotype that Japanese people misuse English a lot. So, I changed it to Japanese. See examples of Japanese-English or "Engrish" at engrish.com.

Comments and critique are always welcome. Wish me luck!

Edit: You can stop wishing me luck. :) Thanks to dygel and $lolly and whoever else was involved. Congratulations to the other winners!

Now hear this! I get this question way too often. deviantART owns the rights to this shirt now. I couldn't print more even if I wanted to. So unless dA decides, by some freak of nature, to produce more (I strongly encourage them to, by the way!), there's nothing I can do about new shirts. If you missed out on the first batch and want a new shirt that badly, petition the administration. I can't do anything. Sorry!

Nope. Legally, deviantART owns the design now, and they only print them once. Sorry. :)

Reminds me of Chef Sakai on Iron Chef. His partner in a contest said something to the effect of "I like working Chef Sakai, he's got great ideas and he's like a zen master of the kitchen, blah, blah." Chef Sakai said, "We are super happy fun team."
