Re: grow



Wow. I just stumbled upon the comments page for JadenKale's "Swim, Little Nessie" from last contest. I didn't realize just how much assault a cute, simple, and/or not highly complex design would get on these forums! I was just poking aorund previous winners out of boredom/curiosity.

Anyway, wanted to make two comments based on that new viewpoint:
1) JadenKale: You epitomize grace under fire.
2) I now see that the woot forum community and the woot voting community are two very different things.

On that note, I think I will, in the future, leave my comments all positive and/or polite, as it adds more to shirt.woot derbies to encourage artists and not tear down this place as an artistic haven.

Pardon the short observations, just thought it had merit given the echo in the recently debated topics within the comments of this entry and the earlier simple (and darn cute) entry from last contest.

whats the difference in Cho's design and the Oh Crud shirts as far as the market it would appeal too... ? wouldnt grandmaw think birds are cute, just as a baby dragon is cute?

space your comments so your motives arent so obvious.

I guess I don't see why you think my comments are connected.

Yeah, that's right. Pancakes. You know it, I know it. Nothing else needs to be said about it, because we can all wear shirts about it.

Re: grow



Some of you have a lot to learn about design, flow, and RE-wearability. Designing something simple, well placed, pleasing to the eye, and not incredibly abstract increases the compatibility of this shirt with other clothes.

Yes some of the other designs in this derby are incredible and the designers are worthy of a lot of praise, but taking a good idea and continuously breaking it down further and further into its most simple components and executing that idea properly is by no means an easy task either. The design of this shirt is simple enough to be understood and APPRECIATED by almost anyone (who isn't pissed off about derbies) and attracts the eye.

Good job, I'll be buying one if it wins.

What is the "good idea" being broken into its "most simple components"? Seriously. I just see a leaf surrounded by curvature that was clearly added on at the last second to add space to the design. I say clearly because a designer who took as much time as many of you insist grow took would have either shortened the design so it didn't span nipple to nipple, or expanded it so it passed both.

I feel I've been very clear about what makes this design weak, but that its defenders can tell me nothing about the design itself, just that they like simple things and they like this. I really don't think the average person would understand this shirt. They wouldn't look twice at it. It blends in and while the color contrast might attract the eye, the design is forgettable. It's too safe, too simple, and looks too much like a commissioned icon for a healthcare service or life insurance or education aid. It doesn't look or feel inspired.

On the other side of the coin, there are those of us who look great in yellow, orange, cream - "hated" colors. I've stopped buying charcoal no matter how great the design because I have too much dull gray in my shirt drawer.

I'm with you. I don't actually have anything against this design and it looks like something one of my friends would wear, now that I think about it. Hmm...if it does place, I'll have tell her (she's on woot too but doesn't check the derby).

But...I really, really, really, really want the unicorn shirt, so someone in the fog is going to have to lose in order for me to get it! l o l

Anything under is $200, and i don't think ANY derby winner has sold under 200; not sure tho.


superspryte wrote:What about $250 for a winner or $500 if it sells over 500 (the info page needs to be updated)? So far every derby winner has sold over 500 shirts so it's practically a guaranteed $500.

EDIT - Looks like els got there before me, hee hee.


Wow that is cool! So does any artist who has their shirt printed get paid like this? Or is it only for the 1rst place finish?

There are 10 types of people: those who know binary, and those who don't.

Re: it's all pancakes



I am very impressed. Tell me tho' - are these flour, buckwheat, corn or gingerbread? Are they topped with margarine, butter or marscapone?
What syrup will you serve with it? As was said earlier, pancakes need words.

I like the design with the shorter rope. Looks real nice. Very clean and not shaky. Also the way the ground is done is really cool. I am impressed. I look forward to seeing more.

If you get a chance can you look at my design and see if you have any suggestions for me. I would appreciate it.

This is a cool design. It would have been nice if you could have made your 600 by 600 pic have a closer up version of the design. Either way GMV

This is a tribute design to Larry Norman. Larry was a pioneer in the Jesus Movement of the 60's and 70's. He died this week and I just wanted to give a shout out to originator of the ONEWAY sign and Christian Rock.
