This might possibly be the most complicated design I've ever done. No really, it just might.

Please wait 5 seconds to see the back. It's up to you though, because it's pretty much just the front upside down… :)

Hope you like it.

that's pretty cool. i'm pretty sure Stalagtite was a nazi prison camp for athletes.

I like the suggestion of treating "stalagtite" as if it were "gezundheit".... brilliant.

Nice stuff, but i'd like it if the white negative space around the black stalagmite was actually the stalactite and just had a face on the bottom of it with the word up top.

I wouldnt worry about it, steven218. Calcium888 stole his name from the periodic table.

hmm it doesn't really qualify as a rip off, which is a shame because me and steve are mortal enemies

I'm not here to make false accusations, I just don't enjoy the appropriation of art


You cock.

Calcium, you must be seeing something I'm not. Besides the phrase "stalagmite vs stalactite" (which isn't even exactly copied, since Steve misspelled "stalactite"), there's nothing similar about those designs.

third.

That's not a rip off. It's just the same title.

shit. i was actually worried about being seen as a rip off merchant.

now that i'm not worried anymore i can get back to plotting tesco's doom.

radiostaticstar

haha, don't worry about that guy, i've seen a few of his comments and he has terrible taste.

Kinda wish "stalactite" was right side up so it was easier to read, but this shirt is very clever nonetheless :D

Pizazz

I'll say it again, this design is wonderful, can't wait for it's print

Thanks for the kind backup over this, I really appreciate it. It's not nice to be accused of something like that.

I emailed Andy Mueller from The Quiet Life too, and his opinion is pretty much the same as the rest of us, that the two designs have nothing in common other than the name.

I also had a look at some of his awesome artwork and after speaking about threadless hopefully Andy will maybe take a look at subbing some design work here too. The more the merrier eh?

I think all I can say now is thanks to calcium888 for a) bringing the pain on himself and b) helping to (hopefully) attract more top notch talent to threadless. Well done sir.

If anything I think it's garnered more support for this design.
