You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing
You come in to look for a king
Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave them burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen


Derby #96: Dance

Whether it's a ritualistic spiritual practice, to win over potential mates, or because an outlaw is firing his revolver at our boots, dancing is an almost universal element of human culture. In every place and time except for that one town in Footloose, people have moved their bodies to rhythm. Capture the beauty and grace of the living form in motion, or crack visual jokes about the graceless twitches of the clumsy, and put it into t-shirt form. Belly to break, swing to slam, tango to techno: let the dance begin...

Dance. Interesting. Thanks no1 for posting the thread. I've been designing something for Threadless, and I didn't get around to seeing the new thread.

Here's my first idea- quickly realized:

Eggstatic dance:



Worthy of continuing? Suggestions?

i think the idea may be worthy of continuing. suggest somehow making it look more eggstatic. mabe more of a leaping pose? mabe a little less straight up-and-down? i know it's hard to convey emotions on a featureless egg...

Arms/wings more upward-y would help give it that feel of emotion, I think.

LMR's opinions are like margaritas: intoxicating, and best taken with a bit of salt.

Nice, Patch! Better than what I did... like the sumo too!

Overall, I'm just so blah about all my ideas... I so wanted to do a "history of dance" type shirt, but I just can't draw people...

Here's my really silly idea. Of course, it's prolly already been done, but it took me all of 5 minutes...



Vote before it gets rejected for already existing...

Heyo pubbers. Haven't posted in awhile due to life and guppy. I have checked in on the derbies though, and I briefly had hope for this one. Of course we all know I was hoping to see some cancan, but oh well. Thanks to patch I have 2 of my very own, so I guess I should be satisfied with that.

And I will note I am surprised at the dearth of 'bunny hop' designs I was expecting. Here's hoping you all are having a better year than I am.

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH........ whatever.

Hi Attila!

I'm a Christmas Unicorn! In a uniform made of gold, with a billy-goat beard, and a sorcerer's shield, and mistletoe on my nose!
