That story is apparently an urban legend, but you can see a video of the story on You Tube.

Hmm... I guess they're looking for stuff that's really very much about motherhood and not just mothers. But then there are quite a few others around (including my own) that I think should be considered off topic as well. I guess it's subjective, so it just depends on what Joel thinks.

Re: Meowbot 3000



Woot needs a rule against this "Click for full view" in the thumbnail. I think most of us have figured out that concept by now.

That being said, this is a great design. Although heavily random, I enjoy it. It's nice to see a great design on a lemon (?) t-shirt.

Re: Modern Avian Motherhood



Sometimes I see something and it makes me really want to draw and paint and live live live. That's how this design makes me feel. It's Wonderful! You and the other talented designers here keep this place from looking like it is populated solely by frauds like me. I saw you asking how to improve this one; I hope you get precisely crummy goddamn advice and you listen to not a single bit of it, because I think this design is wildly perfect and shouldn't be altered even at all. I’d say “s-word!” about it not doing so hot vote-wise, but it’s better this way. It’s like watching a ship sink just as the sun sets in the background, and while you look on from the safety of your life boat, you see the final portion of the ship catch the flimsy light in the most breathtaking and heart rending way. But you couldn’t have it last for more than that solitary moment, because the tremor of beauty that runs through the scene relies exactly on the brevity of that instant. Hooray for everything about this design, I’m fascinated by it!

Re: Mother Nature



That makes me sad. This shirt is beautiful. Apparently you need to put a baby stuck on her somewhere, or a bear of some kind or something.

I like the idea for the shirt, but the font choice is about as bad as I've ever seen on this site.

Re: Mama Bear


Wow, I am really surprised at all the whinging in this thread! So what if it's a re-sub? It hasn't won in the past and no one is forcing you to vote for it if you don't like it.... so what's the big deal? How is it less original just because you've seen it once before? If the shoe fits...

Re-reading a good book doesn't make it less original. Neither should a re-submitted design be discounted just because you've already registered it in your brain cells once before. And for those griping about how the changes are 'scything' the potential buyers... isn't that what the voting system is in place to judge? not you. Let the system do the work of deciding what is sellable and what isn't instead of shooting down a design before all the votes are in. I think this shirt is great and would love to buy it for my mother.

I always prepare myself for rejections, so I'm not too burnt up. =) There's always been and always will be, from the designer's standpoint, "unfair rejections". One really unfair one what comes to mind is the "text" cat in the no-text winter derby. But my point is, I had it in the back of my head that off-topic might befall this design.. so i just patiently wait to see the theme Thursday, and hope I create something that I am proud of, and that others like. =) Thanks for the comments.

Maybe the problem is that it is hard to tell that these are watermelons or that the one on the right is preggers...maybe work on the art and resubmit? I'm sure it would make a great Mom-to-be Day shirt!
