I don't think I pointed out to or accused you of being unoriginal. Thats must be something you read into, I am not one to put others down



No, no. You didn't. I didn't write that. I'm trying to remember what I wrote that would have been filtered into that. I still I am an un-original person to see how this shirt represents greed. The fact that the penguin is wearing two tuxedos doesnt justify it for me. And someone above said that he is obviously greedy, but I don't see how obvious that is.

Well you can sort of think as the penguin as a scrooge or a stereotypical successful business person. The penguin is well off but he's exploiting all the other little penguins to get to the top. He has so much but he refuses to help those who aren't as fiscally advantaged, in fact abusing them to further his gain. He's just greedy and needs more, more, more, and always at the expense of others.

This design illustrates Americans being greedy by claiming land that isn't really theirs. After all, it belongs to the aliens because they were there first, right?



Exploration. Discovery. Adventure. All of those, yes. Greed, no. Especially after your explanation. Thanks.

I can't vote for this since it is off-topic. No one looking at this on a shirt would immediately think, "Greed! What a fantastic representation of greed!" l ol Besides, aliens are right up there with pirates and ninjas.

Now that you were so kind as to point out the pig hugging money, I've given my vote to that one instead. Voting helped clear that confusion right up. Any other art you'd like for me to not give my vote to?

Great design, but don't like the color. It is not just greedy - I think the title should be kleptomaniac..

Re: The Greediest Little Bunny There Ever Was



Every other time I look at my design, I've got a new vote. =) Despite it being lost in the haze, a few of you still notice. =) Thank you so much for you who voted; it's not many, but each one means an awful lot to me. Thank you, again. =D

I think it's a bonus that it isn't obviously greed. If you think about it though, it is. Sometimes it's nice to have a shirt that takes a little thought.

Then again, it was pretty much obvious to me how this was greed when I first looked at it...

I'm not sure, but I thought kleptomania was a condition where a person was unable to control their thieving, i.e. stealing without even being aware of their crimes. This image is clearly not that. =P

Thanks for the kind words, guys. This is my second attempt at t-shirt design, and I'm feeling much more confident in this one than I did in my last one.

I thought of giving this a cleaner/less gory look, but that wouldn't ring true to the real "zombie spirit", IMO. Anyways, you gotta break some skulls to make a... br-omelette?

Re: Greedy Weed



I cannot believe this got rejected because it wasn't 'clear' which plant was supposed to be greedy. Obviously the greed was noticed if you can't even tell which plant was supposed to be the greedy one, and that's the theme this week, is it not?? Yet a cupcake in a bear trap, which is getting pretty close to the fog, gets to stay in the derby. A cupcake in a bear trap? WOW, that shows greed WAY better than this shirt. No, a cupcake in a bear trap doesn't show greed at all, but then again this shirt probabaly wasn't made for a 9 year old and well, a cupcake in a bear trap I can only guess a kid would wear, and that's all woot seems to be targeting in this derby. Although, you can go find a cupcake shirt at any department store for a few bucks if you'd like to buy one for your kid, and call it greed. Then you wouldn't even have to wait for it to ship.

Re: DANGER! cupcake



This doesn't show greed at all. It looks like something a really obese person might wear to remind them to stay off the sweets. I hope it gets rejected.

Re: (Sel)fish RESUB 2



I think I liked resub 1 better. But I understand why you changed it. What can you do? Woot should give us more time between the announcement and the actual derby to perfect our entries. Still very nice.

Ok. But he doesn't have that much. He has a suit and a nice walking stick and a monocle. And didn't you say this shirt was ugly anyway? (Which I agree with).

in the world of shirts that isn't even remotely close.
what planet did you claim for yourself that you think this is comparable?
wow i guess that means all those dragons should be disqualified since other people have put a dragon on a shirt before huh?
