The Woodlouse. Also known as the potato bug, the armadillo bug, the slater, the roll up bug and probably plenty of others. Would probably have to be simulated process, but wouldn't a discharge print be nice, eh?

I'd rock that shirt like a hurricane.

they're also called pill bugs, sow bugs, and roley poleys, and they are actually crustaceans, not bugs or even insects at all. they're more closely related to beach-hoppers, those things that jump out of kelp when you kick a pile of seaweed.

ah! what if someone tries to step on me?! :D

$5 love the colors! (actually found a lavendar roley poley once as a kid, no lie)

While my skin is absolutely crawling (no pun intended), this does look pretty cool as a shirt!

the lavender ones are likely infected with a parasitic worm that makes them more visible to birds, so then the bird eats the purple sowbug, gets infected by the worm, and the worm is happy as can be in the gut of a bird, who eventually poops out worm eggs and a sow bug eats them and the gnarly cycle continues!

My first thought was "hello Kafka", then I realized that it was NOT a cockroach and I was intrigued. I always love art that makes me look twice. Great job.

I don't know why people don't like woodlice. They're the some of the nicest things ever. They don't bite, they just chill peacefully and eat stuff that needs eating.

hahahaha. You should score well on this mate. Either way, it's very much print material.

Vindemiatrix

In Reading/Woodley they call them cheeselogs. :)

This is very cool. Sadly not something I'd wear, but I have one or two friends who definitely would...

Vindemiatrix

I know, it's so bizarre! But that's what a bunch of my friends say...

This score = wtf.

But, I'm still hopeful. It would sell, for sure.

Bramish

Bah!

Well, it's about what I'd expect from this design on Threadless, but it's a great shirt nonetheless. Hopefully it won't be overlooked despite that score.

LOL! I've had better scores dropped after the first day. I feel I 'revolved' and in the spirit of the competition I will forget about the score. Thanks y'all.
