You know, we need to team up and submit a superdesigner entry or two sometime in the future... The chogentry and chomicherly teams seem to be quite successful
This seems to be a morning for rants. So here goes. Then I'm going to scram outta here before Ducky finds out that Cho flirted with me last night. Our little exchange can be seen on the fogged design "Heart of Nature". You'll also see where I got into a knock-down-drag-out with not only Addled Adder, but a couple of his gal-pals, too.
Remember that what some consider "drama", others consider "discussion". At any rate, I posted this over there, and I'll reiterate it here:
The "Heart of Nature" vector art design might be rejected, in which case those who have been objecting so strenuously to it will be vindicated and those of us who like this type of design (feminine, romantic, wearable) will just have to wait until the next acceptable design comes along and vote for that one instead.
I should think that this little dust-up would serve to give a clue to the designers here: there is a large voting body out there that wants "girly" stuff! Not cartoons, not zombies, not war, not skulls, soldiers, swordfish, or Medusas, not horror, not crows and presidents, but things a woman can wear and feel PRETTY wearing them!
I've been saying that since the first day I discovered Woot shirts.
Instead of stewing and b*tching and griping about how this design came about, and instead of wasting your energy bemoaning Woot's capricious rejection practices, why don't you all sit down and start thinking of ways to win the "pretty design loving" votes? Draw some hand-made swirls! Design a romantic heart-shaped flower! Use colors besides blood red and asphalt and puke beige! Get a freakin' CLUE!
Now that you know that there are enough votes out there to put a "swirly-girly-frilly" design in the fog, get on your A game and GO AFTER THEM!
