Love the design and the concept; well executed. But as for me wearing it, I'm not sure; mainly due to the color contrast of having a large pink object on a blue backdrop. I don't know if I could pull this off as a dude.

Re: Grace



I do love the design, but I also agree on the placement. Upper right would look nice. I'm not too big a fan of black shirts, so I'd love to see how this would look on a creamy orange shirt. Just my preference, though.

Thank you very much Kungfumanchu! That means a lot to me. I sure wish more would make it to the top, too! Though, its always tough going against "all-star" competition in these double-take derbies. I'll keep designing if you keep voting!

Am I the only one who does not get the appeal of Edgar shirts? Of course, the water color technique in this won is done really well, but the style of the drawing is just strange. Oh well, to each their own.

I think it was suggested last time that it was only orange and yellow for the sun, then two blues, gray, and then black (outlines). This seems to fit, but only allowing for the use of halftones beyond the abilities of a mere mortal.

I'm very glad this is still fogged, I hope it lasts (or Woot doesn't screw up the EC's).

When I was brand, brand new to the shirt scene I didn't quite know what to make of Edgar either, but he very quickly became a favorite. It really is a matter of wabi-sabi... I don't think you have to be an art snob to appreciate the twee, childlike innocence Edgar is able to capture. Essentially it's because it's so different from everything else in the shirt world that makes it so incredibly charming.

I'm glad you like the design!

As for your concerns, it's not pink actually, it's red. Maybe you need to adjust your monitor. Plus, if it's called "Red Giant, White Dwarf" why in the hell would I make the giant pink?

So is the pink-ish part an orange halftone? Or is the black the same dark blue as the darker halftones in the clouds?

I don't doubt that only six colours are used (I'm not always a fan of his pieces but Edgar definitely knows what he's doing). I'm curious as to which colours were actually used though. The watercolour effect is great.

I wouldn't call it "red", per se. Maybe a rosy red or a deep pink. The belly is pink.

I've seen a whole lot of Edgar-ish stuff on Deviant Art so I guess it's completely lost it's charm for me. It seems odd that people would flock to the nonsensical types of designs so freely when there seems to be a raging debate continuously going on around here for what actually constitutes "good art" on a shirt. Ohhh you people here are rather fickle!

For my personal tastes only, some of Edgar's designs are hit-or-miss. There have been a few that I just don't 'get' the widespread appeal of (ie: Fiction vs. Non-Fiction), but I absolutely *love* some of his not-quite-creepy, vaguely-twisted, almost-tragic-yet-undeniably-charming pieces.

Some of my all-time Edgar favourites include "Play musics for my eeears dum dum dum dum dum ", "Inspired By Gravity's Rainbow", "I'll be there Tomorrow", and my all-time absolute number one *favourite* design, "my pet deer".

Unfortunately, I'm usually in the minority, and the Edgar designs I like best never see print.

It's colorful, whimsical, and beautiful design. It's simple on the eye as well.

Overall, it looks great and would make for a shirt I'd wear in a second.

binkdrop wrote:I am going to go ahead and bring up the argument that every space-related show brings forth then, explosions in space. Like...I watch Star Trek, and quite often there is one thing or another that blows up in the middle of space, but of course in real life that wouldn't happen, as space lacks surrounding oxygen to fuel the fires and the explosion. Here you have the classic argument of what works in reality versus what looks cooler. Regarding my shirt, I had to make a decision on what would make a better, simpler joke and could include more characters to make it visually interesting, versus what is scientifically correct.

So...just because I know explosions in space look and sound nothing like on television shows, that doesn't mean that I can't appreciate it's visual appeal or the fact that without the sounds it'd be a rather uneventful scene. I'm not going to boycott the space shows because of their scientific inaccuracies, so I would hope that you wouldn't hate my shirt because it doesn't completely adhere to scientific properties.



I'm not sure you're reading what I wrote. I'm not talking about scientific properties or explosions. You have two different concepts fighting for meaning on your shirt, and neither of them relate to the other. Either one by themselves would be good, but put together the entire idea behind the shirt becomes cluttered and not very well thought out. I think you did a good job with all the elements, but put together the meaning becomes muddled in my opinion.

paramecium10 wrote:I love science based shirts, but I can't figure this one out so maybe someone can explain. I know what a red giant and a white dwarf are, but what do either of these things have to do with our solar system? And where is our sun, which isn't a red giant or white dwarf? And why would they be playing marbles with our planets? The whole thing makes no sense, in fact I think it's kind of pointless given that there's no connection holding any of it together. I prefer the one in this derby with our sun playing marbles with the planets, at least those things are related somehow. This is a highly overrated shirt in my opinion, unless I'm just missing the connection.



IMO this shirt is underrated. It needs more votes. I want this badly. I know it's "cute" which is frowned upon here at Woot, but the design is very clever. vote for bink!

At this point, I think we're just talking ourselves in circles; you think I didn't read what you wrote, while I did, and I think you completely missed the entire point behind me bringing up explosions in space. I haven't managed to completely convey to you the lightheartedness of the shirt, and you would prefer a more literal shirt, so perhaps we should just stop having this conversation.

I acknowledge that you think my shirt in its entirety is not well thought out, and you wouldn't buy it. I have noted your thoughts on it being "cluttered", although I humbly disagree, and we can leave it at that.

Maybe you could take all this negative energy and turn it into some positive compliments for Shigwarm here, since his shirt seems to fit more of what you're looking for anyways.

Cute idea, though. And peahens aren't nearly as flashy anyway.



It could be a female penguin wearing a bowtie. =P
