Awesome.




Heehe... it looks like the rejectinator accidentally hit the ' key when going for the enter key. If the whole text is selected when you do that it'll erase the text and replace it with an apostrophe. I've been clumsy enough to do that, unfortunately.

If I had to guess what the actual rejection was, I'd say it would be "off topic." It could probably be corrected by making it: "I'll wear what I wan1, Mom!"

And I knew about the seahorse thing a long time ago... back when I wanted to be a marine biologist while living in RI. Kinda hard to study that out here in the middle of Wisconsin though.



That's right, JadenKale--we're an awesome jellyfish trifecta! Best of luck to you and your design, by the way!!

I'd get one for everyone on the housekeeping staff here at work. They'd love it.

This design was inspired by the lyrics "Lady Madonna, baby at the breast ..."from the Beatles Song "Lady Madonna" and by John Collier's famous painting "Lady Godiva" c. 1897. I thought the combination of the two "ladies" made for a nice, compassionate design about the bond between a mother and her newborn.



Cool! I love it when I can recognize the art world inspiration for a design before the designer explains it to me. :-)

Re: Lady Madonna



another gorgeous design! Wow. I love the idea of the madonna inspiration without overt religious symbols, so those of us who are not religious can still enjoy the beauty of the design.

Re: My Mom Forgets Things



heh. I resemble the mom in this shirt! I go through the list of names (kids, cat, dogs) and finally end up with, "whichever child you are"

I teased my grandmother mercilessly about this when I was younger. Clearly, my karma came back to bite me.

If you don't win, I'd check about cover art submissions for novels - I could totally see this on a mystery. (After the 60 days, of course)

another nice one, shan! I'm not usually a flower person, nor a big design person, but this is very well done. Nice choice of cream, too - the cranberry didn't pop as much.

Re: But I love them anyway



When I saw the design on the mainpage, it looked too chunky to me. I imagined the image was large and smack-dab in the middle of the shirt. But when I opened the thumbnail and saw the whole design and placement--Wow! It's chunky, yes, but so very delicate too! Beautiful and balanced design! GMV :-)

Re: Egg Baby Trauma



I keep coming back to this shirt. At first it didn't capture my interest, but now you've gmv. it's definitely twisted enough for me. I've got an inner vegetarian that is squicked out, but my outer dark humor wants it badly.

And, *phew* the kid with the anaphylactic egg allergy has gone home. I was getting twitchy about eggs while he was here overnight! Our own allergies are enough for me to handle, thanks!

Very cute and appealing - was there a Tim Burton-ish inspiration for this one? I love his stuff, too.

Also, maybe only one color in the echo shadow instead of two.

Good luck



thank you very much =D. I will consider reworking the placement and colors slightly and resubbing if i have time (finals right now). Thank you for the suggestions!

With a teddy, the design can tip into cute--and "cute" is good and has done well before with wooters. But without the teddy, the design remains more understated and subtle. And I've thought about it, considered resubmitting, but came to the realization that I'm more interested in the simple and subtle with this one. Thanks to jmseifer for the thought, though! :-)

Re: [url=http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=13871]Adam



(From Wikipedia):

Mitochondrial Eve (mt-mrca) is the name given by researchers to the woman who is defined as the matrilineal most recent common ancestor (MRCA) for all currently living humans. Passed down from mothers to offspring for over a hundred thousand years, her mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is now found in all living humans: every mtDNA in every living person is derived from hers.

Her "partner" was included to complete the concept.

Next time you synthesize ATP, be sure to give your mum a call and say "thanks".

Thanks Same here, but my MOM actually suggested I do a "mum" shirt. I had a nice picture of one so I thought why not! I'm glad you said that about the cream, I've been having second thoughts but I really thought I'd wear the cream shirt more than the cranberry version.

I dont like any of the shirts and I dont particularly like this one. However, due to my dislike of the shirts, I will use my vote for this one since breast cancer runs in my family. Best of luck.

Re: Mum's the Word



Simple, pretty, suitable for wear around town, won't offend your mother or monster-in-law, quite a good design, I must say. Would look spiffy with matching pink shorts in summer. I like it!

Re: Lots of Hugs!



Okay, appears to be working now. As I've been trying to say, another fantastic JadenKale design. GMV. As for Nessie, everytime I wear it, I get lots of compliemts. And the best part; people know it's the Loch Ness Monster. They don't mistake it for some random dinosaur. I would love to run into another Nessie wearer here in the Dallas area (the same suburb even as the "WOOT factory"). Hmmm, I wonder if Woot gives tours...
So far, on this derby the only ones I've voted for are this one and the Baby Carrots one. I'm not real thrilled with some of the designs, and I generally like the cutie patootie stuff.
Okay, let's all show JadenKale's jellyfish some love.
