THEME:

Spring is just about here, bringing green grass, wind, rain, baseball, and another seasonal Derby. As with our Summer Into Fall and Winter themes, we're looking for designs that capture the essence of the season. Judging by past results, this means we'll see a lot of trees. What won't we see? Well, we don't want designs about Spring holidays like Easter, and, uh, we dunno, Memorial Day or whatever. Also, no text. Now go get sprung.

Sorry, I have a lack of funny today, which leads to attempts that miserably fail. However, here's the funny I Iiked from Derby 34: My Funniest Entry under 100 Award goes to:


There were certainly better shirts out there, but this one is one of the few that made me laugh. At least it wasn't gross.

I'm envisioning a grass green shirt with a patch of dead grass in the middle.

Really I'm just posting here to see my new signature picture.

I foresee a funny four panel cartoon that would be really funny, but no-one would vote for: guy dressed in thick wool jacket, hat with ear flaps, gloves, sitting in a lawn chair.

Ground covered in snow for all four panels.

Underneath each panel is listed a specific season: spring, summer, fall, winter. In spring, guy is holding up an umbrella as rain comes down. In summer, same guy, same clothes, is holding a metallic sun,reflector into his face. In fall, guy is holding a rake, and the chair/snow is covered with leaves. In winter, you can't see the guy (he's covered up totally with snow).

caption above it all: Four seasons in Minnesota.

Oh, I had to see the name of the file to figure out what it was. THought it was an egg or some hairy critter cracking its head off for a second there. You probably want to make the sides of the iceberg sharper (have peaks)... but interesting concept.

Interesting doesn't sound good. I can take critique, it's not like I want to spend hours for 22 votes again.

no need. it's the third or fourth idea that I get that usually is the best, "best" being a subjective term. You're just helping me to reach higher up the tree for the better pieces of fruit.

aha! a formation of flower petals, mattress springs, and those spiraled watch springs all working together in unison to make a larger picture of, of, oh, mental block! What can this mosaic composition form?

Oh, the humanity! Mental block!

Sorry I didn't give enthusiastic praise... to me, it looked more like global warming than spring. But it's not like I'm a fountain of good ideas right now... getting past the no text rule and avoiding flowers and trees is hard.

You helped enough with that alone (and if enthusiastic praise is unwarranted I don't want to hear it anyways--my mom gives me enough of that already). It was inspired by global warming in a sense, but glaciers and icebergs (which fit onto a shirt more easily) do go through season melts with or without global warming, so I was hoping to fit it in as spring. I think if it looks like an egg and would get the right wingers riled up about it being about global warming, I'd rather skip it.

I think I'll spend less time on thinking of ideas and more on executing a simple one. The winners from this week didn't necessarily all have a clever idea, just time enough to make it look nice, which is where I usually neglect my ideas.

I like the idea a lot! I'd bet there's lots of us who feel like that most any morning.

But I don't like the little pistol. It's well-drawn and all. Can he be chucking a rock instead?

Sure can. I liked the idea that bears pack heat. Maybe I'll do the following (see if you get the joke):

He's ready to throw a big beet, and he's wearing this on his shirt:
