Stalagmite vs Stalagtite
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.
i like it, if it doesnt win re-sub it with crazy stalagtite and stalagmite colors.
awesome!!!! hope this prints
FIVE FIVE FIVE
your work always interests me...
I love this too! 5.
my bad :/
though in my defence i was pretty drunk when i did this one
lol, then it's ok.
You've gotta have a system.
I likes it.
Nice work. Yes, you should drink more.
that's pretty cool. i'm pretty sure Stalagtite was a nazi prison camp for athletes.
this da bomb dot com
I like the suggestion of treating "stalagtite" as if it were "gezundheit".... brilliant.
this is amazing!
Fix the speeling and I would certainly buy this.
simple and lovely. :)
Nice work. Spelling is an easy fix. Everybody nose that grate artists can't spell four chit!
so simple it's genius! $5
um, can I just say that this is incredibly wonderful?
I only wish "Stalactite!" was right side up.
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.
could you link to it?
before you accuse me of theft that is.
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

if that is the design you think he "stole", you are beyond ridiculous.
p.s. this is adorable.
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.
i second the you cock comment
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.
i'll fourth that.
5anda$ for sure!
hahaha omgz someone used the same object on one t-shirt so you can never ever use it again!
whatever man, that other tshirt sucks while this one is super fly.
$5again and again
most controversial design of 08 bestee here you come!!!!
it's very cute btw
well that was uncalled for couch
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
dude i can't believe you stole from this design too!!!!! plagiarism is soo uncool omg omg omg omg
I'll say it again, this design is wonderful, can't wait for it's print
Nice one steve. $5!
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.
Huzzah! Well played chappy.
Great design btw.
thanks guys. hopefully the controversy doesn't adversely affect it's chances though.
If anything I think it's garnered more support for this design.
DRAMA! drink it off Steve... :)
already have blair! but just in case i'll drown the crap out of it tonight too.
This is the shirt that I want to see printed the most.
haha! It's so cute!
