ye old bubble gum myth! just like seeds and such, i still have yet to see branches growing out of my orifices though, maybe i should swallow some more seeds

Thank you for all the awesome comments so far!

I posted more color choices in my profile so if you like lighter colors or just hate brown, go take a look!

stingerstyler:Haha, you're right. It kinda is an urban legend, by definition.

mrplate:It's all original, honey. I wouldn't make it any other way. ;)


i just saw a cartoon about this
but it was swallowing plastic gloves and a stethoscope growing out of your tummy

see...same thing

id buy it on the green in your blog.

and im glad thats the original bubblegum flavour because watermelon and strawberry taste soooooo nasty.


That's pretty rad. $5

Jennifuhrer: I smell a sequel! ;)

surreal blue: I gave the bird a little cheek later on so it looks more like he's blowing that bubble and I think it really helps give him more detail. That updated image is in my profile.

and thanks asher and teechers pet!!

Thanks for the suggestions everyone :)

With the possibility that this would win, I'm sure Threadless would take any requests into account. So please don't let the text/no text debate affect your vote.

The centered placement is there but maybe your monitor is too dark to see the two different browns. There are other color possibilites in my profile.

Thanks again!

Being the artist, I would probably place the text in blue along the bottom, front seam of the shirt so it wouldn't interfere with the dominant design's balance.
