The squid DOES kinda look like a condom.
I'd totally go for it if it looked more like a squid.
It's an octopus, not a squid.
If it looked more like a rocket, I would purchase.
i like this $5
do octopuses even ink? I thought that was a squid thing. Anyway, like the sketchy look, maybe make octopus/squid bigger. I like the gold on purple.
Ink is a squid thing. Use gold foil ink-that would make it look really striking.
Ooh, octopus! $5.
Most octopuses can eject a thick blackish ink in a large cloud to aid in escaping from predators. The main colouring agent of the ink is melanin, which is the same chemical that gives humans their hair and skin colour. This ink cloud dulls smell, which is particularly useful for evading predators that are dependent on smell for hunting, such as sharks.
canadian beaver is obsessed with cocks... but I don't like it either. no more octopussies for the love of god
Can't the girls shirt b printed in da same purple and gold???
it looks like a feather duster, not at all like an octopus.
its awesome. well done
Yeah, both octopuses and squids have inking capabilities.
I have a friend who would LOVE this... I like it too, though not with the gold. 4.
I like the gold-on-purple a lot, but I'm not sure that I like the concept.
I'm starting to think that some of you guys have never seen a penis or a condom before.
Nah, it's just how they roll. Dig it? They printed one of my designs after dozens of people made penis comments, so don't sweat it. Nice design.
have seen neither/nor*
Whoo not awake today.
Saw it in the critique, saw it here, and I hope to be wearing it soon! $5 for sure!
Purple + Gold = Uh-mazinggg.
I need this shirt.
I like the concept, as many have said, but it's definitely too square.
Hell, I like it.
octopus is getting really played out
I also seemed to have submitted this during an octopus rush. It was a bad move on my part.
Love the purple.
the octopus is phallic! i love it!
it would look cool on gold, but the purples good.
hell, i LOVE it!
are you guys really having problems understanding what an octopus is?
Neat with silver. Icky with yellow/gold.
Your design is a little bit ambiguous by the first look. But, it really has some concept of yourself. I like white ink more than gold ink collocated with purple.
no matter how many times i see the octopuss done, i would still buy it... along with every single one.
I made a shirt like this and unfortunately, even with more detail, it's nearly impossible to get away from "Is that a penis?" with the tentacles bunched together. Sorry. I feel you, most certainly (my friend wears his dick-squid shirt proudly) but from previous experience, I can say this design probably won't be successful. I'll give you a 4 anyway (great minds, right?)
if i see another squid i'm going to quit threadless
COMPLIMENTARY COLORS! YAY!
i like it :) and i can see why people are saying it looks like a penis, but i didnt see the octopus that way until i read the comments. i still dont really see it that way :S
I gave it 4$. Just please god, not on purple.
Both "octopuses" and "octopi" are correct pluralizations.
I'm not quite sure if that will be easy to read on the t-shirt $3
I love this shirt. I'll buy it if you win. And I think the colors you chose look really good, complimentary.
Thanks to everyone who voted!
