haven't tucked since goonies came out.

love the new colors.

Happy Beer.

Re: The White Peacocks



The "a" is a tad hard to see, which causes the word "cocks" to pop a bit more than I'd ever want on a shirt

I suppose it won't pass for parody...? or get off on the fact that maybe it's just a guy with a Danson-esque hair cut?

If it does get rejected, that's OK. I got to giggle while I made it.

Would woot ever consider spinning off "KidsShirt.Woot"? That way the usual derby winners could still get printed, and they could go back to printing shirts for adults on shirt.woot

This entry gives me gas. When you saw that the next derby was "fake band t-shirts" is this what you thought of? You can't be serious. This is even worse than deadfrog's joke entry for this derby. Are you out of good ideas or something?

Oop! Good catch, that is supposed to be Charleston, SC. That is what I get for staring at the comp screen for so long. That will be fixed in the print file if things go that well. Thanks!

But I DID redo the colors, so how about THIS ONE!

Hope you all like the changes. Off to bed for me



i dug the colors the first time around (and the new one), but when i explained it to my bro he laughed first, but then said "i'm not wearing a rainbow in the sky. all it needs is clouds and i could wear it to a pflag meeting." i could see a lot of male wooters against the colors for that reason alone. but i personally like the design and the lettering.

anyway, i think it'd be funny as hell to be walking around chicago and have some germans trying to hand me money. not that it would happen, but it's funny to think it in my head.

Happy Beer.

Re: Monsters Of Cowbell World Tour



I really like this shirt, but I think it's gonna' look ridiculous with the front blank. I understand Woot! can't do it, but I wish they could put a little graphic on the front; then it would look more like a concert T.

Maybe?



With the exception of the maple leaf, that's nothing like this shirt. Just because it included a maple leaf and the word "Eh" doesn't make it similar.

I'm surprised more people aren't discussing all the terrible type choices around here. Am I the only one noticing the atrocities? I mean, I know I'm a snob when it comes to typography, but seriously.

Anyways, yours is great and coalesces perfectly with your illustrations!



Thanks!

I did all the lettering by hand, and yes I'll admit to being a bit of a typography snob. It's always fun to create typefaces.

I believe you would be correct. Most of the time the positions are opposite from what you have here.

Excellent drawing, though! I really like it and would get one for my Dad - he's a drummer.

I don't consider a homeless person and a hippie to be the same thing! Being a filthy hippie is a lifestyle and it doesn't mean you're at all disadvantaged or anything. Isn't the filthy part kind of the look they're going for? Hippies want to be hippies, so calling them hippies doesn't seem to me like it would be that offensive. It's really pretty amazing that some of them put themselves out there like that.

Thanks everyone for the votes and comments and especially to the awesome hippies out there who like it. All in fun.



I think that those sensitive people are mistakening this shirt as one for the unfortunate whose life is only a box and a trumpet by their side. NY has a lot of that. I doubt that is what you were going for though. xD

Do like the shirt, however couldn't you have made it look less poster-y/box form? Or is that on purpose. I dont think those look very good on shirts imo.

Re: Interplanetary Bunnies



You're... you're not even trying, huh?

Pander, pander, pander. DeadFrog's pander-bait, at least, I find amusing because it's self-aware and actually has meaning beyond the ostensible woot self-reference. I'd buy it for the irony and wear it for the popular music commentary.

This? No. Nothing.

Even my tween cousin, who loves the majority of your and your girlfriend's work (sigh, tweens!), looked at this and didn't get or like it. She asked "are those supposed to be bunnies," and "why does the one thing have to be dead?"

Indeed, since it's a "band" "design," and they're "supposed to be" "rocking" "bunnies" (I'm very skeptical).... why does the one thing have to be dead? What does it actually contribute to the "bunny" band design?

And a question of my own: why do the "bunnies" have bodies seemingly composed of lumpy sacks of sand?

I did this comp on both in jpg and png and the png looked fine, but for some reason still came out all pixally when uploaded. I DO NOT KNOW WHY. This is what it should look like:



This is also totally my fake band name in Rockband.

Oh, Artulo, I'm not really one for cute, but there's something about your style that I can't resist! Like your ketchup container tee, this is simple, sweet, and just plain adorable (without putting me into a diabetic coma). I would love to wear it (insh'allah). GMV!

Welcome to Chicago! Hie yourself to Kuma's Corner (corner of fransisco and belmont), Hot Doug's (corner of roscoe and california), and Hopleaf (on clark, south of foster) as quickly as you can. Best burgers, hot dogs, and Belgian food and beer (oh, gods, the beers!) in the city (respectively). And don't drink anything but Intelligentsia coffee--Cafe Selmarie in Lincoln Square has the best blend! If you'd like any recommendations or advice, PM me--I'd be happy to impart some.

One of my favorite quotes is a Paul Rand... "Don't try to be original, just try to be good".

Not really sure where that particular comment fits in the world of the Woot Derby, but I thought I'd share nonetheless. ;p

Sorry this doesn't seem to be getting votes, though it's understandable. I appreciate it, at least. ;)

hoho. I love that your cousin asked about the dead one. Personally, that's what I like about this shirt. I'm not one for cute... unless it is slightly disturbing. (You Guys Have to Try This?)

That being said, this shirt is still a bit too cute for my taste. I would have to see a meteor actually bouncing off of the helmet or something so that the juxtaposition is a bit stronger. Also, the name would have to be something a bit more catchy/clever. (I understand that's not the artist's style, and my tastes aren't the same as the masses', however) I do still like that this is a bit different from the norm; though be it ever so slightly. Just my two cents.

BTW, I just want to point out that those are in fact bunnies... and pikachu-esque. I thought that everyone knew that by the year 2030 (2 years before this band started to make it big), the rights to bunnies had been purchased by Nintendo (a large gaming company for those who are unfamiliar). Bunnies were then genetically engineered in order to create the first reality based pokemon game... the game was unfortunately a flop due to lawsuits from PETA.

P.S. I would've caught them all.

Re: The Space Crabs



My only nitpick is with the scribbly shadows and highlights on the male figure - they look great on the crab since he's distant, but the closer figure seems like it should be a little tighter in the rendering, like the lady in red (who I think is perfect). The colors and halftones are spot-on, though. definitely GMV.
