Thanks. The theme is:
Polecat vs baskets... Polecat wins!
In the stamp, the basket monsters are attacking him and he’s mercilessly slaughtering them left and right. If I showed a “gutted” basket in the design, then DGU wouldn’t stamp it because it would “condone course vandalism.” I’m already a little worried that they won’t stamp this version as-is. I should find out later today.

He’s not supposed to be in space, it is just night time. However, I’m plotting a new original comic book idea and it is set in space; maybe I have space brain haha!

The baskets really reminded me of something and I wasn't sure what. I just realized they eerily similar to one of the villains from scooby doo.

I don't think they need to be related either. But, that is a sick stamp. I'd buy one.

Man I love Scooby Doo! Maybe I saw that episode and it somehow unconsciously inspired me
Here is the design I submitted to DGU to check for stampability. I'm not 100% sure this is the final configuration but it is really close at least. I also asked them to check one last time for premium discs. I'd absolutely love to have some premium Polecats in the batch!

Premium plastic might push me over the edge to buy. The acetone bath I give DX removes the stamps.

I'll bite. Why do you give your DX discs an acetone bath?

Like the art, ready to buy, but must note that I showed it to four people and they all either asked why it was in space or mentioned something about it being set in space. It has a very outer-space vibe.

I say just roll with it and act like you did it on purpose.
