Lady Liberty gets the TSA "backscatter" treatment. This image was created to protest the recently enacted and maximally-invasive TSA screening procedures.

Excellent! How did you use this to protest?

Oh I get it now....

This is an awesome concept. Did you happen to see the skit on Conan, the TSA one? It's hilarious.

Nice job.

The statue of liberty is much more fit then I imagined, not that I was dreaming about the statue or anything...

awesome shirt!

hmmmm.. has been in the running for 4 days. takes that long to print the shirts. So either they saw it on his website and asked him to submit it, or it was literally approved the second it came in.

I'm going with the former seeing as he just joined and this is his first submission.

If this is true, then it's a bit fishy, hey it's your company, Threadless, but at least be upfront about it. So was it it an honest-to-god submission or curated??

Aside from the fact that I find it weird the shirt is already on sale before scoring has finished, I feel this shirt belongs on bustedtees/snorgtees, not Threadless. I know the topic is extremely sensitive at the moment, but it will pass. Goddamn current affair-themed designs! Boooo Threadless.

Art should be timeless, not timely.

At least 3KCM had huge comments and score. This is just unsettling and wrong that this should skip scoring altogether.

Man. I was kinda hoping I'd just missed the scoring on this, but I really want this shirt.

wow it printed already!!!!!! congrats!!

In respons to AdderXYU:

Art can't be timeless. It can only be relevant for a short or long period of time, and this is hugely relevant! It is a bold statement of cultural production and I'm refreshed to see real art on a T-shirt (no offense to pretty and clever things, I love them too). It skipped scoring exactly because art is timely. Every bit of it that has had an impact in our world coincided with perfect timing.

GENIUS!

Why is it still in scoring anyway? Even without the option to score it..

evolveORdie

probably that's just the way the software works... this is (i think) the first shirt to ever be printed before the 7 days were up.

well I think it's a good pick. yall know scores don't matter and threadless will print what they like. nbd that they knew they wanted to print it regardless of the score. democracy here is an illusion anyway. i wish they showed that kind of confidence more often.

yetitutu

heheheeh I like how direct forward Threadless is about printing. Nice concept btw! Congrats!
