Re: Please Dispose Of Thoughtfully.



With a club?

Oh scaffolding it is an anti littering shirt...or is it? Those two look a little relaxed perhaps they were taking a couple drinks.

Not a huge fan of white shirts.

Probably really works like this: If this shirt gets 10 tattles we will review for REJECTED if it gets 50 tattles it gets REJECTED no matter what.



But... then you'll start getting people who are really, um, anti-Ramyb for example, who simply "tattle" in hopes of rejection. The theory is good, but that won't work in actuality. I understand the need to reject shirts, and agree that in this case it was founded, but there's no need to go about rejecting every shirt an artist designs simply because they have a rather large hatebase.

tgentry, this is beautiful, but I think I'd rather frame it than wear it.

I'll post the pictures of the shirts that I have. And yes, I do have a camera. The shirts that I will show will be Blue Moon and Synthetic Beauty. I lost the pirate shirt which makes me sad. But oh well. I still have those two, I'll post pictures later on for you though.

I don't think the design does enough to make it a parody of the price is right game, which is why it was rejected.

You're still missing the forest for the trees so to speak. What you have here is a concept shirt. The concept is the depiction of a tree and the outdoors as lungs in order to make commentary about fresh air. No matter how many extra trees you add or what elements within that concept you modify it's still the same concept as long as you leave the lungs intact (and still looks strikingly similar anyway).

The same should go for any shirt that makes a skull out of anything for ever and after. No one needs more shirts like that.

As for the tree in the city, there are many reasons it should be rejected the foremost is that I don't think it really has anything to do with national parks. It also has absolutely no chance of printing.

As for tgentry's, woot specifically asked for "stunning, shirt-worthy images from a national park." I don't think anyone would disagree that this applies so it is 100% fully on topic.

What I am most surprised by is that there aren't a ton of "don't eat the gummi bears" shirts. I looked and maybe other people's google skills are better than mine but there was nothing I could find that used the same concept, but the idea feels old.

edit:

The skull shirt is a lot closer to the fog than I thought. I really should be getting the axe as well.

Don't forget the full design because that's also the issue. Every halftone shirt I've bought, including "Air" (which I'm not as happy with even comparing to photographs) the halftone dots are completely distinct. In ramy's comps there is always the effect that the colors and dots will blend to look like a solid field but that is never the case on the shirt in my experience.

Re: A Breath of Fresh Air (Resub)



Yea, glad it's back - love it! Great Design, I like the new re-make better. Lovely – he kept it basic scene the same. To all the saggy boobers out there - BUY a GOOD BRA! Spend some of that money saved from a bargain priced WOOT t-shirt. Complaining about half-tones the lung shape, the tree placement blaa bla blaa bla bla . . . such a minor thing, the over all design is picturesque. Get a grip people this is for a $10 t-shirt (less if you subtract what it costs to ship). I spend way more on a bottle of tide to clean it! A WOOT rejection is a shame, so many have a common design concept – just executed differently. A lot of designs lately have been rather silly.

Since you have the shirt and a camera... what did the areas that look like an airbrushed blue fog down by the girl print like?

Cause this Derby image he posted showed no halftones at all just smooth gradients which you can't do easily on shirts.

Re: Lost Souls Cavern



I'm really not a fan of this one. I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking that no one really needs another hidden skull shirt. I'm pretty sure more skull shirts exist than any other kind of shirt. And as with other heavily half-toned designs, I just don't think this will print well. All of the distinct dots will look pretty messy inside the design.

If I haven't actually purchased, I'm usually a fan or your stuff since it tends to be fairly fresh compared to the norm but this one is a miss for me.

I'll let you know if it doesn't do well here, i'll probably put it up on cafepress If it doesn't do well here but we'll see I've still got 4 days to rise to the top, lets see if I get noticed... I do love it so, I'd buy one definately.



You can always wait to see if you get an honorable mention. ^.^

I want this either way, as long as it gets printed someone. :3

good design is good. Whatever needs to take to get it in the fog. I'd wear either version.

Isn't there supposed to be bright electric blue background dots next to that drip? It's completely non-existent in your picture. I don't think you proved your point, quite the opposite.

Well it's based on what WAS a parks logo, from the 70s.

It's not used anymore. I don't think this shirt design should be rejected on that basis.

The logo looks like this now: http://www.pc.gc.ca/ Nothing close to the original or the above symbol.
