Re: The Tycoon of ICE



This shirt is obviously well done, but I, like others, don't think it conveys greed nearly as well as some other top-ten entries (ahem-tgentry's-ahem Excuse me!). And the fact that it's another penguin entry from Cho, who could do ANYTHING successfully, makes me sad. I know he hasn't had a winning entry in several weeks now, but I don't think that should mean pandering to the simplistic voters who obviously prefer boring, anthropomorphic cartoon characters over creativity and art. Cho, you are a great artist and a wonderful designer, and I would expect more out of you.

Love this. Great colors, and the hands evoke the work of Saul Bass or Art Chantry.

It makes my heart sad that there are like 5 dragons-hoarding-gold shirts ahead of this one in the voting.

Re: The Tycoon of ICE



I really like this shirt! I love penguins, and so does my little sister. If this one wins, I will be in for two. I have so many woot shirts now, and I totally wear them to work, including several cho designs. I am 24, which technically makes me an adult, but I think that the t-shirts help me show that I am not a boring cubicle gopher.

This was Cho's second entry, an. His first one, which is more complex, is molding in 8th place. I think he sent this one in just for fun. And wouldn't you know.....

I'm surprised this didn't get rejected if it really isn't legit even though the shirt submitted after it was rejected. Did noone who posted the links to pictures tattle?

Re: Just... one... more...



Really like the idea, design, and color choices. =) Would be nice to see more girly and/or yellow shirts on here.

My only concern is how it would look from a distance, or until you got up close... a large, off-center red spot, lol.

Still, GMV, and I hope you submit again. =)

I'm guessing that someone did tattle. However, this close to the end of the derby, joel rarely pays attention to entries that aren't close to the fog. They are getting ready for the next derby and for selecting the shirts for the weekend.

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!

This is my first submission, and I'll be the first one to say 'pull it' if it's deemed illegit. I openly admit I grabbed the image from the web. I checked with my husband (who's purchased multiple woot shirts), and he pointed out one of his recent buys - http://s3-external-1.amazonaws.com/wootsaleimages/Rampage_Wear6juDetail.jpg - had elements pulled directly from the web - in fact, off of another tee. We decided since I wasn't just grabbing the image and slapping it on the shirt, but changing it up, it became a derivative work. Again, if not, sorry!

The difference is the piece from Rampage Wear was clipart that the artist was allowed to use commercially. Taking a random photo from the internet is not quite the same thing, but if you missed the conversation about that shirt you wouldn't have known.

I guess I'd pull it if I were you. The changes you made were pretty minor -to change it from a photo to a few colors? That doesn't strike me as a particularly substantive alteration. But, I'd like to know your description of the changes you made, I'm more than happy to change my opinion.

The rampage wear shirt did seem to have a Godzilla design that was also used on another t-shirt previously, I agree. However, I'd expect that Godzilla design couldn't be copyrighted as it is a derivative work itself. The person who made up the first shirt may have drawn Godzilla themselves, but Godzilla almost certainly belongs to someone else. In addition, both shirts can be argued to be a parody of Godzilla, as the woot shirt seems to mean, 'curb your dinosaur', which to me is making fun of the whole Godzilla meme, and the other one is using Godzilla to make fun of 'n00bs', something that Godzilla wouldn't be likely to do, as Godzilla, like Chuck Norris, doesn't care if you're a n00b, he's going to kick your ass either way.

I expect though, that woot didn't know about the other shirt when they printed it, and they wouldn't have, had they known. that's just a hunch.

oh, I see that superspryte posted that it was clipart they had rights to- that means there was no question about whether the other shirt was OK- it WAS OK.

this is by far the best design i've seen for this derby. The clever idea and amazingly done image are perfect. I will definitely be getting one if it is in the top 3. I actually removed my votes from the penguin and slug so this one could make it back on top.

Keep on voting! This shirt rules.

wow thanks a ton dude! that really means a lot to me. I hope your effort pays off. and I wish others would do the same. Im glad to see that some one is being selective on how they vote. if you want a desing to be printed then you cant vote for everything else too.

thanks for your support!

Re: All your dollies are belong to us.



Yeah, the problem lies with copyrights. That picture you used could be copyrighted by whoever took it, and Woot wouldn't be allowed to print it, even it was changed. I don't think they actually take the time to track down the photographer to see if it was copyrighted, so they're more likely to assume it is and just reject the shirt. Copyrights and fair use and etc. are a big, confusing, jumbled mess...and the best way to avoid it is just to use your own drawings or photographs. l o l

It wouldn't surprise me if whoever designed the Godzilla shirt had to prove to Woot the Godzilla image was clipart that was free and legal to use.

True, but he rejected the vampire shirt that was submitted after this one. He's been really good lately about rejecting stuff earlier and keeping up with rejections all the way to the end.

wow I don't know what to say. I am perplexed by the voters on woot. man this has discouraged me quite a bit. If all the voters want is recycled ideas then we should all just make penguin shirts. emotionless penguin shirts...

don't be discouraged. you have amazing talent, it just sometimes takes awhile to click with woot voters. I wouldn't be surprised if this prints, it's funny and very well drawn. I won't be buying it because i don't like the placement or size and don't feel it's very well balanced, but I definitely look forward to more entries from you.

Just a heads up, check the website on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 1:00 A.M EST when the new shirt goes up. Because if this shirt is in the top 3, its likely to sell out in 1 or 2 hours. So if you wait till you wake up in the morning its more than likely going to be sold out and you'll have to pay $5 more the next day.
