Re: Earth's Energy



I absolutely love this design! It's beautiful and conveys such a peaceful, positive, holistic message.

However, I'm not a big fan of brown (nor do I find it to be a very 'energetic' colour even if soil is partially the source of plant-energy_)..but then I'd like it even less on say, yellow. But I think the grass green colour would be gorgeous - maybe brown (a bit darker of one than the current used for the main design) on grass green?

Designwise I have one quibble - the rays seem really messy and detract from the symmetry and rather detailed complexity of the overall design, and I'd rather just see them gone altogether. Did you include them so that they seem to be projecting this earth/life energy?

Anyway, flawed or not, I will almost certainly buy this if I have the opportunity so I hope it wins!

That is just a myth. It is more likely koalas have to sleep a lot because of the energy required to digest eucalyptis.

Re: Blue Flame



This is the definition of an emo shirt. And it has nothing to do with energy, so why is this so highly rated?

I really wish this did better. I'm a science major (Biology) and this shirt is perfect for me. I really want it. It's not fair, such a cool design!

At least it got a BL award
It's my favorite of the derby. I look at this and think, wow, what a nice design and then notice the extra element of "energy" which makes it even more interesting. Let's hope for a Honorable Mention.


Thanks Sokowa! In that you are one of my favorite artist here, I take that as a major compliment and I appreciate it very much.

This is far better than almost everything here. I voted for it when I saw it, just a pity it came too late. Maybe in the upcoming do-over derby?

I'll think about it-- got to wait 60 days, though!

Thanks so much for all your comments, you guys. I really appreciate them. This design didn't go very far, but I had a lot of fun with it, and I'm glad that I could please some people!

ikay, just a few more minutes and this derby will be over and can i just say,, Thank God! this has been one of the most nerve wracking weeks of my life. for those designers who haven't been in the fog yet let me tell ya, it's not all beer and roses.

i'd like to thank everyone who voted for this design, especially curb1510 who lobbied to get others to vote. i'd also like to thank everyone who commented (i know i've missed a few individually) it made it all worth it to know so many liked the design so much. for those who said they can't wear brown, i apologize.. brown just seemed to call out to me on this one. i tried it on navy with blues and it just didn't feel right.

i'd like to congratulate the other foggers, and those that made the BLAs, good work folks!. there were a lot of great designs this week and i wish woot would print more than just 3 per derby, but hey, them's the rules.

thanks again to everyone and see you in the next derby!

I think the heart fits a lot better with the concept of a circuit than a blueprint. I would totally buy this shirt, hands down.

Lest you forget people are not intelligent or ignorant just because of their vocabulary or lack there of, likewise they are not intelligent based on their use of a thesaurus or on their ability to make themselves SOUND smart as I am now so doing. No, intelligence is based on one's ability to acquire and find use for knowledge that has been gained through past experiences. In conclusion, one's vocabulary is an inaccurate way to gauge one's intelligence-especially through text-not only because of my latter statements but because vocabulary can be used as one feels like it. If one wanted to sound intelligent, one would talk how I am now so doing instead of how I did in my previous comment. Finally, you just got served by, for all you know, an adult; a child; or even a 13-year old.

I would think that using proper grammar and punctuation would be more important than being verbose or using sesquipedalians. Just because someone uses big words doesn't mean he had to grab a thesaurus. I expand my vocabulary by reading. Maybe some other people do too. I agree with you that Adder could stand to be more polite, but I really doubt he's using a thesaurus to sound smart.

I don't really care about minor grammatical errors and bad punctuation on the internet, but you really shouldn't tout your use of it in that last post as an example of "sounding intelligent." If you want to sound smart, be clear, be concise and don't abuse grammar and punctuation as you just did.

I wouldn't have said anything, but you were being rather rude yourself in your condemnation of Adder. I'm not a big fan of hypocrisy.
