I also listed Hemingway's Old Man, because, as short as The Old Man and The Sea is, it does tend to go on. and on. we get it pretty quick, Ernest, really.

I also really liked War and Peas, a foxhole cookbook, but had to leave something off.



No need to defend, but an excellent defense none the less - great concept and technique

this is classic. I was just watching Hot Rod last night hahaha. " But now I'm not legit so Im gonna quit!"

I like this design and I usually dislike shirts with words on them

you sir are no Edgar



Boy, you people ought really to follow the Derby better before you start making unfounded accusations. I have been drawing snails and slugs on woot since before there was a derby. As far as Edgar's style, this ain't it. Edgar draws fine lines around everything, and he uses speech clouds. Further, he doesn't use shadowed silhouettes like I do, like I have done for a looong time. In addition, the hallmark of Edward's style is the intricate detail he puts into his clearly unreal shapes- the only recognizable creature I've seen that he drew was the giant diplodocus he drew in the time travel contest.
This design is a great deal like designs I have entered in derbies since the very first derby. In general, the lines are not smoothed, and mostl there are not lines around anything in my drawings, but some do have them. I tend to use silhouettes, even in the focus of my drawings, but certainly in the other parts, like these wine bottles. I also tend to distinguish between the objects by having each a different shade of darkness rather than having lines around them. Though I didn't include examples, I have made several designs where I put veins in the eyes of a variety of creatures. None of the following designs is exactly like the slug who ha finished his beinge, and wants no more to drink, but all of them share many more characteristics than any of them share with Edgar's.

In general, my designs have been sort of middle of the pack, and lower, but I've been there contributing to every Derby. All of these are clickable and will take you to the original entry, in case you need a better view to be sure I really have made this many bad entries. :^|

derby 1

The Smartpost snail was Fenstar's non-entry, but it is my picture, which woot still uses on the "Ballad of Cherishing" detail image.

derby 4 derby 6

In derby 11 I had a series that included the Hipposhark, one of my very favorite entries ever. The scarecrow is another of my favorites that suffered from a poor shirt detail image.
derby 13 derby 14 slugsderby 15 derby 16 derby 20 derby 22 derby 24 derby 25

While I love Edgar's work, but I don't 'do' Edgar.

Haven't you ever heard of a chicken exit? Like on a roller coaster, sometimes they'll have the chicken exit for people who chicken out? I've seen them in haunted houses too.

Re: True Love Never Quits



As promised one contemporary collaged abstract for your viewing pleasure.

A romantic, flirty, contemporary design stating that while other forms of love may quit, "true love" never quits. The weath in the background is made by layering the title's text in a circle to reinforce the idea that it never quits.

Keep on believing! I appreciate your votes.

There's been so much of this with the eames-era designs. Maybe folks have met their saturation point. Still....I think it's a cool design. I wanted to do something quirky with "Quit while you're ahead". You did a good job with it!
