The Gift of Knowledge

I had this idea a while ago (before Threadless announced 'The Perfect Gift' contest). It had been floating around in my sketch folder for a few weeks, not going anywhere. There were many different versions (lots of erasing and reworks) and nothing seemed to work right. It didn't have any direction until I read the words 'The Perfect Gift'. What is the greatest gift you can give to anyone, something that your child or your friends or even a stranger could all enjoy and benefit from?
That's when it hit me: knowledge. It might be a little bit out of the box (in terms of a gift), but I believe the best gift you can give to someone is information that will help them in the long run. Whether it's educating your child about the 'Facts of Life', or comparing notes you took in a college course with your study group, or telling a stranger on the bus what time it is, knowledge of information is what we all need and can use in everyday application.

PERFECT

I love the artwork. Would be nice if the artwork too up the entire shirt, front and back, instead of it being an image on the shirt and to see it available in an Girly XS, V-neck w/ sleeves (t-shirt sleeves, the ones that go to about the mid-lower part of the upper arm). Excellent artwork.

Ok, I know I submitted a design for the same contest but I am willing to concede... This must and should be the winner. Great concept (absolutely agree with it) and design. A well deserved 5. Now I'm going to go weep in my beer.
