Re: V2: how chopsticks work



I agree with the tusks - classic! The frame, not so much. But, even so - this version rocks. So sad it isn't getting more love.

I still see a bunny, but I get what you're saying and apologize for the 'gratuitous' gripe. I find myself a bit snarky after a string of rather tough and frustrating derbies. Sorry. I still think it's valid that the silhouette of a human would have worked as well, and probably made more sense. Hope my comments are helpful - they're meant to be.

Re: Stephenie the Vampire Slayer



I freely admit, this shirt made me laugh SO HARD.

From a design perspective, the serif font you used is difficult to read on the shirt, particularly from a distance. I DO NOT advocate using comic sans! However, another sans serif font would likely be much easier to read, and if you found one with rounded edges it would have the added bonus of matching your characters.

Now that I'm thinking about it, the other thing that makes the font hard to read is the black outlining/background to the text and frames. With this color of shirt, I think it's dark enough that the white will stand alone and actually stand out more for not having the black bordering. Particularly on the frames, you could just make them a little thicker.

For some reason, the border on the people and stake doesn't bother me. That's probably because they have a lot more white to them so the border is more incidental, and they have other black features (eyes, stake, hair, sparkles)

(Example) The delegates differed as to who they thought might win. (Not whom. Here the entire clause is the object of the preposition. Substitution is particularly helpful in cases such as this. They thought he might win.)



ahhh yes yes yes of course, "a vampire who sparkles" is all its own clause or preposition or whatever. Therefore it is he sparkles.

Hmm, I've been out of Grammar class for far too long I suppose.

On a somewhat related note, this shirt has my vote, I love it.

go to the main derby listing page and click "I'd want one" button above the thumbnail,
if you do not see the button then you may not have ever bought anything from woot.

only accounts who have purchased a product from woot can vote on shirts

Unfortunately, you cannot vote unless you have completed at least four years of art classes (two years of which must have focused on the contemporary arts, including graphic design, Leporidae figures, and gratuitous exaggerated drawings of females (males is a less registered elective) wrestling in some oily substance.
Or, you could buy any Woot item (shirt, Woot, Deal, etc.) and become persona YEAH grata and Woot's best friend, and be granted the AWESOME privilege of votabilty.
(Short answer= buy something and you're golden.)

Vomit, as a topic of humorous discourse, as well as pop art, is prolific. Especially now, after decades of refinement. Imagine. Back in my day (actually, considerablly later than 'my day'), there was a single, badly rendered smiley for 'this makes me sick/puke'. Hell, before that all we had was >P (to be fair, I had to spend an inordinate amount of my time pantomiming my finger down my throat to get my point across). It's gone past meme status ('meme' didn't even exist when the pukicon was born) to cultural icon. It may even become so embedded in the digital-age human consciousness that we forget its origins!

Uhm. To clarify, the guy was talking about the 18 bunnies... on one shirt. And yea, it's close to the fog. Even you said it was close to the fog...

Agree about the off topic part. Honestly, a punit square would have been perfect, but I'm not sure Ramyb would go for that. Not kawaii enough you know... mongoose. Crapi.

There are a bunch of problems with this, not least is some lack of some visual context to bring the design together (along with the backward foot on God!). That said, its hysterical, and you should definitely try this one again with more refinement, here or elsewhere.
