    The voting is winding down to the final days. Sadly, my designs have not made it to the popular page, but I have some faith in myself. I truly hope my love for the Muppets shows through my art. To check them out again, see below:

    http://atrium.threadless.com/themuppets/submission/1515/

    http://atrium.threadless.com/themuppets/submission/463/

    These are truly original drawings of the characters, starting from completely scratch, pencil and paper.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed! Good luck to everyone!!!

    I'm pulling for Frogboy's design. I saw it come up on its first day for voting and gave up on the design I was working on bc I knew I would rather wear that one instead of mine! LOL

    BUT, I still think a lot of these designs would make great shirts! Especially the shirts sitting in 2nd-5th right now!

    Did anyone here design the Muppet Balloon shirt with all the Muppet head balloons? It's GREAT!!!

    I would love to see that one and more be put up on http://www.redbubble.com/shop/t-shirts

    We could all use more Muppet fan art shirts!!!

    So I'm still wondering..."The Muppets: The Green Album"...What IS that exactly?

    I can't find any official information on it, but on Muppet Wiki it mentions that it's possibly this Muppets Revisited album of covers of Muppet songs with a new name. It's probably almost definitely that....probably.

    Hey, George the Janitor, I didn't see him in there! He looks so...profound there. :attitude:

    Oh, and here's the optional back or sleeve design I did just for fun, I just put it on the slide because I didn't have enough time to incorporate it anywhere else. :confused::eek:

    Mr. P. - YOU DA MAN!!! I voted a 5 for your design even before I saw that it was from a fellow MC'er, really beautiful piece! :D

    And Jamie, really lovin' the close-ups dude! Naturally, as Rowlf is my FAVORITE Muppet, I adore him the most (next to Kermie of course), and I love that Robin is sitting atop his head. Perfection.

    I hope our Muppets hot-streak continues!! This is really great, it hasn't felt like this for a looooooooong time. I do believe that Jim is smiling somewhere.

    So many great entries. I wish there could be multiple winners (at least four). Many of these need to be t-shirts.

    I'm so blown away by the amount of talent in this comp. frogboy4, you're leading the race! Well done! :D

    My design is really simple, but has somehow made it into the top 12 :excited: If anyone wants to help me get it into the top 10, I'd be the happiest Muppeteer around! Seriously, I really don't expect to win with the calibre of designs that are currently leading; I'm just so excited to be on the 'popular' page!

    Anywho, this is my design, The Paintbow Connection. Again, great work everyone!

    Jamie, I got the whole family registering on Threadless - you will win ;) if only I could get everyone who gave me a 1 to give you a 5 you'd have it in the bag! ! Best of luck!!!

    Thanks much!!! I expected this score dip to happen so much sooner. That's what's kind of crushing right now. I started it's own thread, but here's a medium-resolition desktop pattern for all Muppet fans. Win or lose, I did this thing that's kind of cool and actually feels complete to me.

    I will now hop in the shower and go 5 blocks to City Hall to experience an hour of the madness that is San Francisco Pride. I'm sure to get a few supportive hugs there. :eek:

    Oh James, I've been behind you the whole way with this! I mean, you've been so involved with the Muppets for so long now, you totally deserve this break! If anyone hasn't voted Jamie's top, do it now! The design is gorgeous and so deserving!

    How can you tell who is number one at the moment?

    Also I just found Toughpigs wrote about my design
    Code:
    I find Big Mean Carl to be hilarious, mainly because he’s so deranged.  I could totally see him “befriending” two headphone-wearing penguins who are just waiting for the moment when Carl decides to have a snack.  It’s a Muppet moment worthy of t-shirt immortalization.
    
    My rating: 4
    d'aw! http://www.toughpigs.com/threadless-5/
