I put my Rodent's Revenge shirt on yesterday, and I noticed it didn't have a shirt.woot tag, just an American Apparel tag. I feel cheated. :-(

Ooh! I have that shirt. Now I need to wait to get home from work to go see... I hope it has a shirt.woot tag. ; ;

Yeah.. that's what I dislike about uneetee; the American Apparel tags. I know a tag is insignificant for the design of the shirt itself, but I think it feels more personal. That, plus the fact that daily uneetee shirts (now weekly) have gone up from $10 to $12, I don't think they'll be seeing very much of my money. =/

People seem to love cute animals. I have a ton of charcoal shirts, so I probably won't be purchasing it when it gets printed, but I can definitely see why people like it. It's good fun and makes people smile. I'm sure that explains at least a few of the votes. Also, the design allows the wearer to use it more than just Feb.29 2008. He/ She used a more general calendar idea that makes the design more than just a 2/28/08 shirt.

Greetings Brizz,

I suppose that all these people that are turned off by signatures must be the same crowd that refuses to purchase a Van Gogh print because of that annoying "Vincent" on the lower right hand corner. (Wha?! Now he's comparing himself to Van Gogh, how truly pretentious!) I may not be as know as Van Gogh, but I am an artist and my chosen medium is electronic. I'm sure you'll agree that as such it's impractical for my work to only exist on a monitor.

From the age of designers working in mediums like public art (Banksy, Shepard Fairey) custom urban vinyl toys (Frank Kozik, Patrick Ma) and t-shirts (Tokidoki, and the girls of spicy brown), I would like to ask you to join us in the 21 century. T-shirts aren't just something you toss on anymore, these are personal preferences, political views and pieces of art that just happen to also be articles of clothing.

Frankly if the use of my signature holds me back from winning a woot contest, I still win. I got the chance to push myself beyond my limits and produce a design that otherwise may not have existed. Keep an eye out brizz, because what you view as pretentious is really my ambition to make a mark in this world (yes, like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Leonardo da Vinci, and Andy Warhol did).

I greatly appreciate all the support I've received from fellow wooters, and the challenge that woot gives me every week. -Rogue Angel

But I suspect you are in pretty good shape for at least one of the top 3 positions. If I was a betting gal....I'd put you, the Giraffe's and TGentry's entry in the top 3.

Have you seen Cwarrignton's site shirtderbystats.com . If you visit the current derby and click on the top 10, you can see his estimates based on an algorithm he uses with hotness votes. He's been pretty good at establishing the right rank even if the votes are sometimes off. Here's a link to the current derby's top 10 and their vote estimates.



Thanks for your confidence. That site is really cool and it will be interesting to see how accurate it is.
Here is what the current model of the shirt I have on my computer looks like: The Pi's are more elegant that atrocious typo was fixed and I made the equals sign an "approximately equal" sign.

klswoot wrote:Iambusy....What about this....? If you want to give the approx. measurement of 365.25, couldn't you simply change your proof to include a squiggly line that represents "approximately" rather than solid lines that represent the "equal to" sign? Maybe that would allow you to keep the number that you want and please the math folks who want it to be more accurately presented.

You did see the earlier post about the first equal sign needing to be changed to a multiplication sign in the last line, right?

Just wanted to make sure because I definitely believe you are in a great position to be printed this week. Congratulations. (My husband is a statistician/econometrician, so I may just have to buy one for him...in fact, we met in a Ph.D. program for Econometrics....so I may need one too for the math element! Ahhhh spending too much money on woot shirts these days!!)

Congratulations again! Will this be your first derby win?



I agree that you should use the squiggly lines instead of the equals sign. That way, non math minded people would get it, but it would still be accurate. I was going to suggest that the other day, but I forgot.

You don't have to like the shirt but there's no reason to create an account for the purpose of dissing it and the artist.

Greetings klswoot,

I currently have two versions of the chop, the dirty version I use electronically (as you can see on woot), while the clean version I'm in the process of manufacturing a physical form. Since I created the final designs in Illustrator I was able to laser cut wood and plastic blocks, but I still need to make a handle to properly hold them. If you'd like more info then perhaps there's a way for us to trade email addresses through woot? Thanks klswoot, sincerely, Rogue Angel.

I'm of the opinion that Tshirts shouldn't have signatures on them unless they are reproductions of an art piece or done by a famous or important designer. I can't think of the last time I saw a sig on a shirt at Threadless or DBH. If they are on there, they're hidden or barely visible. Doing a big stamp as an unknown artist doing marginal work is a bit tacky and will turn off a lot of people from wanting your designs I think. Just my opinion, they're your designs and you're more than welcome to keep stamping them on there.

Why? Kenny, do you think that was necessary? Since he already told us that he used a borrowed image and hand traced it, what was the purpose of posting that? The only reason I can see is mean-natured. It's slightly disheartening to think you took time out of your day to be mean here. So I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and say that I've misunderstood you. Please tell me what you really meant. ^_^

And for the record, I think his looks much nicer than the livetrace.

Thanks for all the support from the other derbiers.

This negative comment actually made me smile. At least an attempt was made to make it sound nicer via a nod to Shakespeare.

Belean has a secret love for Carebears, so it's okay. I finally got a carebears mention in a woot derby. (I'll add that one to my daily journal.) So, it's all good.

But, Belean you really needn't bother yourself with the comments on my entry. It's not going to place in the top four, so your efforts are probably better spent on trying to sway voters on the ones that really matter.

Not trying to pile on here, or anything but... As a shirt enthusiast and fledgling shirt designer, I'd never vote for, buy, or wear a shirt with a visible signature on the front. Part of the reason I like t-shirts so much is because you get to wear a cool design instead of some corporate logo, and to me adding a signature just takes the design backwards to that logo place. I'd rather wear something without the branding, thanks.

That said, part of the reason that you never see signatures on sites like DBH and Threadless is because on those sites, the winning artist's name appears printed on the inside of the shirt, where the tag is. It'd be cool if Woot got to that point some day, though obviously there's some added expenses and time involved.

i think we should all stop acting like the 15 year old girls we are and toughen up a bit. ever been critiqued in an art class. ain't always bunnies and fairies. people should learn from their mistakes instead of waiting for sympathy votes. i've seen this design enough already. and color scheme for that matter.
