I wanted to call it Critical Mass, because I thought that would be cool and work on a few geeky levels, but I think that idea fell through a hole in the 'tubes.
I chose a d6 instead of a d10 because I thought the d10 looked too much like the d8. The gamer geek in me won't shut up about how lame the d6 is compared to the d10, but the rest of me thinks it was a good choice.
If you like it, give a lot of credit to the person who actually drew it and did the hard work. All I did was think it would look cool, draw a very rough sketch of what I thought it would look like, and make sure the numbers were on the correct faces.
If you don't like it, blame me, because it was my idea.
This little bio they wrote for me is also awesome: "A man of wide and diverse enthusiasms, Wil Wheaton has played in the World Series of Poker, been a member of the Onion A/V Club, met The Suicide Girls, authored several books (including Sunken Treasure, out just now), maintained a widely-read and influential blog, and now ascended to the highest honor of all: featured designer on Shirt.Woot. Oh, he’s also had a couple of acting roles, we hear."
Edited to add: I just woke up and saw that my shirt is sold out. Um. Wow, that's cool, I guess, but also sad. (Like being drunk, which TV told me makes you feel strange, but also good.) I don't know if this means that it's gone forever, or if they reprint it, or what. I'm just glad that I ordered some of my own for me and my kids last night.
Come back tonight at midnight and use this link:
It'll be $15 instead of $10... and it will be that way until it falls below the top 20 of the 27 currently printed shirts.
