Firstly, this is a beautiful design, and CONGRATS Mr "I know nothing"!
Secondly, I'm so sick of creme shirts. Everything used to be printed on creme. Is it just me, or are all the shirts that would previously have been on creme, are now printed on sand? I do like it for tees like In Pachydermic Fashion (which is on a desert so needs a sandy background) or How Many Licks (which is ye olde style so needs a dirty-looking background); but for this design, I do think creme would have looked nicer.
That said, it doesn't make a particularly big difference, I was just interested to notice the move from creme to sand, which overall I think is good, since creme has been a bit done to death! :)
