If I have to explain to you why this shirt is awesome, hi, welcome to Diehard GameFAN!
An expanded “brief recap”: Mr. J. Rose, our resident staff artist and all-around nice guy, has been printing shirts through various organizations, including Short.Woot, Tee Fury, RIPT Apparel, GoodJoe, and other organizations. When this happens, we pimp his work, both because we assume that, as we like his work, so too will you, and because it’s always nice to celebrate when someone is marginally successful in their chosen field.
Anyway, J. Rose won second place in Woot’s most recent Derby, “Classic Literature Mashup”, with a collaborative effort he designed with fellow designer Crescent Debris. Their design, “O R’lyeh?”, can be seen below, which is a design of Captain Ahab fighting Cthulhu:
You can order it here, if you think you can handle a shirt containing this much awesome.
