Re: Big-Eyed Owl Says Hoot




Cute and whimsical big-eyed owl. The owl is made up of letters in the words Hoot and Owl. The "H" is on the left wing (screen left). The eyes make up the two "O's" in hoot and the crown is the "T". The belly makes up the "O" in Owl, the beak makes the "L" and the right wing makes the "W". The claws are made with the words OWL placed upside down.

An old programmers' joke illustrated in 3d text. Hope you like it!

Re: Spicy



This shirt tells the world you're "Hot Stuff" because, after all, nothing says, "burn-your-mouth hot" like a Spicy Hot Tamale!

The pepper is text, the highlights are text and the shadows are text (well, sub-text)...

Enjoy!

Re: Fashion Capitals of the World



Dress Forms shaped into major fashion capitals: Madrid, Paris, New York and Los Angeles. The legs of each of the dress forms are supposed to look like wrought iron and are shaped into additional names : London, Milan and Tokyo. Colorful shapes are used to give the look of fabric wrapped around the dress forms using the various letters and colors.

Re: linc0ln



Hey its Abe! I originally wanted to make this with the text from the Gettysburg address, but realized I didn't want to spend two years on this design. So I made him out of zeros.
Enjoy!

Re: BIPARTISAN BINARY



Just for the record: no actual logos were used in the design.

Most of the letters aren't meant to be read without effort, but here's what's surrounding him in the brown and light grey: "Happy comfy dreams all day"

Look out, its a numeric-text squid! But when did squid start to glow blue? To be honest, I don't really know, perhaps you should try asking the SQU!D...

Re: The Chicken Shi*r*t


Please feel free to say anything about my design.

I realize that soothed is also submitting a design with a chicken so I will try to head off that debate right now by asking you to ask yourself if it would make since for a chicken to be the intellectual property of one individual. His design is very good and I implore you to check it out, but it is not the same as mine.

Other than that, I welcome any and all comments/criticisms/praises. Thank you for looking!!

Re: Blue Birds in Nest



The birds both spell 'Bird". And a variety of text "Nest"s make up the bird nest.

Re: Computer God - an Ambigram.



Ambigrams rule -
I like how you did the ASCI thing but wrote out one and zero instead of actually just writing 1 and 0

Cool design -

HEY The zero and ones are all ambigrams too - AWESOME!

Re: Heroes go PEWPEW



It works. Only text. The legs and antennae are commas (or apostrophes). It falls within parody, like Close Encounters of the 2D Kind did.

Yay.

Re: I'm Utterly Delicious



This shirt has been done before, thus it's not an original concept and should be subject to rejection : http://images.etsy.com/all_images/8/861/4d4/il_fullxfull.13538420.jpg

Also :


From Threadless : http://www.threadless.com/submission/65504/Happy_Cows_Come_from_California/showmore,designs

Here's the idea done on plates :

Re: BIPARTISAN BINARY



I really like the idea, but I'm afraid it might be the opposite of what Woot is looking for. I think you're supposed to make pictures out of text, and this is making text out of pictures.

Re: Heroes go PEWPEW



It took me a second to realize that the Hero was a spaceship, but otherwise it's a cool design.

Re: I'm Utterly Delicious


This idea is similar in concept to existing shirts, as one person has already pointed out. Granted, I agree - though I am making an addition execution-wise to an idea {which, fortunately, cannot be protected}. It is very different from the examples of which i'm sure a couple of people will point out, and based on woots decisions made in this dept. in the past, I very much doubt this is rejection material. I might be wrong. I will say this, let's keep the thread clean in here - I know you guys like to get out of hand. The tattle button is at the top right corner, and if you must - make your case and move on. Let's not turn this into a flame war. Thank you.

That's pretty funny. The designer of this shirt can recite the entire thing from memory. She's my sister btw.
