Every good cartoonist in existence is internally consistent. They make stylistic changes and often things are grossly different from reality (your Bugs Bunny example), but their style is consistent throughout the design. That's the problem here. That's why the tail is an issue. If both tails are small that is a stylistic choice. Changing proportions is just sloppy.


Don't get me wrong, I agree with you, I just think it's not something worth nit picking over when there are others more worth it. Not that it matters as this has been rejected anyway.

I'm all for this. Even if it could be mistaken for a s*** smear, this would be the coolest smear ever.

Excellent job both of you. I'm all for the brown color, and I may even be willing to wear a cream shirt. Woo!

Re: Supernatural Showdown

Re: Sippy...



This is a great idea and I love your style

I know that Jeanerz is right though, woot can't print all the way to edge, the image has to be 16 by 20 maximum and that is usually too close to the seams, could you resubmit real quick after making it smaller? People will revote!

Night diving? Yikes!! If you give him this shirt he may take up a new hobby!!

On the bright side for those of us who won't go past their knees because things like THIS ARE in there!!!!...this shirt plays on my biggest fears, but that doesn't mean I don't love it, I DO!!!!

I find it deeply disappointing that this is presently in the fog, collecting votes not necessarily because of it's artistry, but because of the "omfgi<3lotr factor", while other more original and creative designs stand no chance at printing.



Us average wooters would rather have a not-as-artsy-fartsy shirt that actually is wearable. 98% of the submissions I wouldn't be caught dead wearing.

It's not like I had a chance to print, but back prints have been allowed forever. Seems like an odd reason for rejection. Oh well.

Yes, I agree. Just a tweak would probably fix it no problem. I'm unfamiliar with how that would work; would you have to completely resub in order to change just the size?

I really like this shirt, if it wins I think I'll buy it. This is my favourite of this derby, definitely deserves to be in the fog :D

Re: Spastic Squirrel



LOL...I do not see the similarity between a single bunny sniffing/lapping a spilled (true size) cup of coffee and two squirrels - one sipping a (squirrel sized) cup of coffee in hand and the other with a briefcase.

Not my style of shirt, but since you changed the name (personal preference is not dark-roast syrupy coffee beverages), I will vote for the re-sub! Assuming that one of your changes is that Mr. Squirrel now is on his third cup of light roast Kona.

That's not the only reason. Woot has a PG-13 rule, partially because they like to sell shirts in kids' sizes. This is not something you put on a kid's shirt.

I'd like it a little more if the print size were a bit smaller, but it's still a good enough illustration that I'll buy it if it does print. Excellent work as always.

First, I think its important to highlight that this doesn't "use" another persons/corporation intellectual property. While IP laws can be incredibly subjective... an artistic rendition of a pop culture icon certainly doesn't qualify.

Secondly, I love quirky shirts like this that blatantly pander to the 20-something geek culture that dominates woot. The value of such shirts IS their simplicity and ability to identify with lots of people. On the other hand, there are artist on this site that obviously spend hours making elaborate designs that are filled with detail and subtext; but, these shirts also tend not to consider the anatomy of a person wearing them. I don't want someone staring at my chest for 20 minutes trying to deduce the inner meaning of a piece of art.... I simply want a cheap, well-made shirt to wear to the gym and perhaps start a conversation (and you start conversations on pop culture).

Art is subjective. If you asked me what art is... I would tell you its the great human endeavor of spending much time accomplishing nothing. Just look at some artist that are idolize... Andy Warhog drew cans of soup and Jackson Pollock looks like he took LSD and PCP while holding a paintbrush. So compared to some individuals the art community idolized, I think drawing smile faces, legs, and arms on pop-icons is a step in the right direction.
