This is different and improved with shading IMO, not just a resub.

I'm so predictible . Actually my family is in town until tomorrow so I won't have a chance to do the 3 or 4 ideas I have for this one until then. Sprucing up this entry was the only chance I had to do an entry to sub at the beginning of the derby. Even still, I think it's an improvement on the original, which was missing some added detail.

Well I really liked my cows, and there was lots of complaints about my previous entry with them. I wanted to fix it up and re-sub. Just happens I was able to do it with this theme.

Took a while for me to re-edit this. Computer slowed to a crawl for some odd reason. And anyways this took a lot of thought >.<

I actually went through many drafts, cause I wasn't sure how to make it fit together.

As a Mom who buys many of these Woot t-shirts for her children so that they will not go to school wearing "Hard Rock Cafe" t-shirts or the like, I am saddened by all the negativity being expressed about this derby. Shame on you! The only thing "Hallmarky" about contemporary motherhood is that we all love you brats more than you generally deserve. Children serve as the source of our pride and the butt of our jokes in almost equal measure. Don't blame the topic if you can't think of anything to draw -- blame your mother -- you will anyway.

I'd get rid of the "zombie tattoo" on the shirt - it seems superfluous. and maybe "Mombie?" or not.

Really like it on olive. Nice stretch of skillz. very impressed.

Was just listening to Tom Chapin, and he has a song with Dr. Ruth about the 2 genders (ie: he-gulls and she-gulls):
Ladyguins
or
Momguins

but that's just me. I'm sick of penguins, but penguins with beehive hairdos I'd buy. love the look on the little penguin faces!

wow. kls, you rock.

you keep stretching, this doesn't remind me of Koi, nor of the 2 great motion entries, so different, and so gorgeous. You did a great trick with the colors, like the VW bug, tricking the eye to think it's more colors.

I'm not a yellow person (never buy it, doesn't look good on me), but I *adore* the yellow. The creme is pretty, but the yellow is stunning. I remember your spring non-entry, and while that was pretty, this is much more wearable. and pretty & flowery without being overwhelming and annoying.

This is awsome! Love the way it pops off the dark shirt. I don't see why it wouldn't appeal to non moms as well.

Have you considered the text saying simply 'mom' instead of 'my mom'? My mom certainly was not this bad ass but I definitly aspire to be. Great Shirt anyhow, got my vote.

really like this redesign. The moon is much cooler with a lot of depth. I like how you took the constructive criticism to heart and worked on it. nice! I think they're adorable.

And as a mom who has breastfed 3 kiddos, I end up with all kinds of cow designs (dressed up once as a farmer with the baby as a cow...).

Thanks! That was my hope. I wanted to do a design that was artsy without screaming motherhood. I think Moms will immediately see a woman holding a baby, but not everyone will see it this way. For those folks, maybe just a nice artsy entry with vivid colors on black will be enough to garner their vote.

Thanks suzy!

Thanks Mia too for your comments! I'm glad I can sell you on yellow even if you're not a yellow person.

ditto on the just "mom", though it's 3 min to showtime. I'd wear it either way, but would prefer just "mom"

I also did a less-bright version on creme with a more 'heart-shaped' design....a tad more simple.(?)




I would prefer the brighter coloration on the creme, but I have a personal beef against yellow shirts. I have olive tones in my skin and yellow shirts make me look ill.

The brighter design didn't work so well on the cream-colored shirt because of the brighter white details. I muted it a touch and added more leafy, green adornments to the creme version. I thought it blended better.

I actually like both the light yellow and the cream. They are both prettier shirts in person than on the screen. But, I know that they are difficult for some skincolors, that's why I submitted two different designs on the two different colors.

If the links in my signature are working correctly, they should link to the right designs now.

Thanks for the feedback.

My mother’s no longer with us, but when she passed away she left behind five amazing people. A field medic serving his country, a teacher, a political activist, a librarian, and (of course) myself... we are the people we are today because of our mother. Without her we never would have had courage, humor, integrity, creativity, or a desire to make a change in the world. Without her we would not even be here in the first place. Though she is long gone she will never be forgotten. She lives on in our words, our deeds, our very flesh. This shirt is a tribute to her... recalling the days of joy and laughter when we were a bunch of wild kids who endlessly poked and joked and loved one another dearly, despite the arguments about who got to sit where at the dinner table. This Mother’s Day I would very much like to give this shirt as a gift to each of my siblings, who would look at the playful kittens here and see, I hope, a bit of ourselves and a bit of our mom as well.

If this shirt manages to make it to production, my very first shirt check will be entirely donated to a breast cancer charity. Millions of mothers, sisters, wives and daughters will be stricken by breast cancer. With our support they can survive... with future research they can be cured.

If you’d like to make a donation, Susan G. Komen for the Cure will help you to help mothers everywhere. Even if you can’t donate, please visit their site and get informed. Early detection is a crucial part of surviving breast cancer.

Thanks for your support.
