Re: School



Some of the self righteous carp on these posts is unbelievable! This is not an art contest. This is a t shirt design contest. Most great artists dont design t shirts. Alot, if not most, great t shirt designers are not serious artists. Ill buy a t shirt drawn with stick figures if I like it. If there is a t shirt I like because the art is good, so be it. If I like it for other reasons, ill vote for it. But all the talk on this site about how people dont deserve to win because the art is not good, or its too clip arty, or some other irrelevent complaint is just dumb. This is not a forum for snobby artists to carp all over someone elses T shirt design. If your shirt wins here, it doesnt mean drek about your artistic skill. It means you designed a shirt people want to buy. If your shirt got edged out because people want to buy a pop culture referenced shirt, go get a tissue and have a good cry about it. Dont throw a tantrum and start carping all over someone elses idea beacause you mistakenly thought this was an art contest. Any one who has played mario cart gets the joke. If the inconsistancies of the exact mechanics of how fictitious characters use the shells of fictitious creatures, that look alot like turtles, bothers you enough to ruin the joke, dont buy it. Legal definition of parody from legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com:

"A form of speech protected by the First Amendment as a "distorted imitation" of an original work for the purpose of commenting on it"

Seems like this would be a perfect example of parody to me.

I'm praying the woot gods let this one off the hook to print elsewhere. People this foolish to let this NOT print with the miserable fog we have don't deserve it. If woot isn't willing to step in when the voters get it wrong this badly, they don't deserve it.

If so, congrats on your third threadless print.

exactly, but theres hardly any point in saying it. the same old people that hate on ramy, whether he does mongoose or artsy swirly swirls, dont care that there is a majority decision, or that ramy/seki shirts outsell almost all other shirts on this site. theyll find something to whine about no matter what, or blame it on cheating

Ditto on the ready-to-buy. If you get this printed, I would buy one in a heartbeat. It's amazing, just too narrow an audience.

I say trying it on a Charcoal or Asphalt background. There would be a sufficient distinction from the white, and it would also be easier to read.

Either way, I love the concept and it looks great.

Your design doesn't have to be centered, but has to be within that area. Go here and read the rules and download the tempalte.



Thank You for your help....will keep in mind for future...

Why do you think anybody comes to the derby and vote on shirts? Because they want to see what they think is the best shirt win. So it gets irritating when it doesn't matter what the best or most creative shirt ACTUALLY is, it only matters which design of cute animals Ramy decides to trot out that week. It's like voting Republican in Illinois (or Democrat in Texas) during a presidential election: It doesn't matter, because the reameric masses are voting for the easily digestible crap without any substance. The real problem with this shirt is not whether they look like koopas or turtles or if they're the right color. Though the poster who brought up the fact that the concept itself makes no sense if you have ANY F'ING CONCEPT OF THE GAME OF MARIO KART. People see the basic elements: turtle-like creatures of three different colors, drawings on the board showing kart destruction. "Oh! I get it! It's just like MarioKart! I love that game! Oh, and cute turtles to boot! This shirt is awesome! There's no need to think any further about it! GMV! OOH, NAVY SEALS!!!" While anyone who does decide to offer legitimate criticisms to it are disregarded as being overly negative and we should just get over it because Ramy will win and there's nothing we can do about it. Well what do you think the purpose of the forums are? To offer compliments AND criticisms. So I turn it back on the rest of you: STOP BITCHING THAT PEOPLE DISLIKE RAMY'S DESIGNS AND WANT TO SAY WHY.

I just looked at the star wars parody shirts linked above. Those shirts are on the most part boring and fakon. This is by far superior to those on that sight.

Super Cool job! Best Star Wars shirt ive seen in a long time!

The sad truth is that nothing you said is easily digestible or familiar. People are coddled into thinking majorities are right (even when they're not actually majorities) and that all opinions have equal heft... education having zero to do with it.

So as right as you are, and as clearly as you outline it, it's not ignorant or popular, so people can't decipher it. I've heard plenty of people tell me I can't change minds with a nasty attitude, but the truer thing is, no one can change minds when the head is only full of bone. So long as people think tshirts mean nothing (and again, if someone thinks it's only a tshirt, they shouldn't bother voting, because who wins shouldn't matter to them), people won't care about their personal vote ethics. Ethics mean nothing... it's all about money, and we should support money making, not art.

I would totally buy this shirt. Even if it doesn't win, you should look into getting some printed up and selling them yourself.
