Re: 1984: Big Brother is Watching (2)



I know I have no chance of winning, considering it's Tuesday morning, but vote for me anyway! I altered my original design a bit and I think this one looks a lot cooler. Once again, this was created in MS Paint, which ups the cool factor by at least 200%. :-)

Re: 1973: Skylab


VERY well done, Daedalus. The detail, the subject, the contrast - all top notch.

It needs more votes for sure.

I thought so too. This design is just way too good to be in the fog, I guess? I have no idea why this isn't winning. It's by a popular artist, and it's an awesome design. Oh well. I haven't bought a derby shirt in a few months, might as well keep the trend going.

Re: 1998 - The moon



In 1998, the Clementine probe found frozen water under the surface of the moon. Also, John Glenn, who had landed on the moon, went back into space. This shirt shows both.

I'm turning 10 this year, woot!

I really liked the design on purple! I know more people like light blue, and it works well on that, but it just goes POW on purple.



Once this is released, I'm going to do that. I've gotta figure out how the diaper will print if I have cafepress do the shirt, since I have a shop there and they do maternity shirts. Otherwise, I'm thinking of seeing what bountee has for options. I want to either expand my cafepress site, or go to one that won't cause me to compromise my design purely because they don't have white as an option when printing.

As for the purple, I did pick that color on purpose because it DID pop so well. I wish woot would break down and add a purple color to the repertoire. Although, I wonder if I would have only half the votes had that been an option.

I agree, the medallion size would have been best, as well as giving it a little more presence with more color and shading. It just looks far too flat for me (and I love this movie and book so I'm not picking it apart because I don't know the story or anything). It needs something more, and I don't mean in size.

Re: 1978 - First Test Tube Baby Was Born



This is just too cute! My 2 year old saw this and said, "Ooh! Baby!" I was in early elementary school when this happened and this was the topic of recess. My friends and I couldn't quite figure out how they got that baby to live in a test tube! We had a friend who was quite knowledgeable about s e x (especially back then for a grade-schooler!) and she told us all about it. We were quite skeptical anyway!

I toyed with that for a while... having it look as if you were wearing the medallion. It just didn't feel right, though, with only the 6 colors to use. I wanted it to look realistic if I did it that way. I went with the sketched look and cut down the color size...but it needed to be bigger for that one to work.

At least, that's what was going through my head. I'll toy with some other versions.. perhaps you will see them in future derby submissions by yours truly

Re: 1998 - The moon


Welcome to woot, m2m. I really like how the colors on your shirt really stand out. I wish other designers understood the concept of contrast as well as you do.

Keep drawing, I think you have a good eye for what works well on a shirt.

Re: 1987- death of a star



here;s the scoop on this one. Andy Warhol dies Feb 22, 1987. Dusky Seaside Sparrow goes extinct June 17, 1987. And the first supernova viewable with the naked eye from earth since 1604 appears in the sky on Feb 23, 1987. So, a shirt on death of an artist, a feeble species, and a star.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that bird looks like unoriginal art, and I would have at least gotten rid of the white background. The star loks pretty good if you did it yourself, but it looks like too many colors.

Also, colors must be solid, and, unless I'm wrong, that's not one of the available shirt colors.
