Basement cat was drawn noticeably smaller because good is always more powerful than evil.

I don't really believe that but it sounds nice. :P

I don't usually follow derbies this closely as much as this one, but, correct me if my assumption's wrong, this week's set of rules certainly seem ambiguous and hence more problematic than usual.

It is a clear violation of the rules and yet it hasn't been expunged by Woot. Go figure!



It is not clear - flowcharts without text are possible, but aren't really flowcharts (and for the purposes of the meme, the text is fairly necessary). And know your meme is not the meme decider, just a good guide. And nothing on their page says it's questionable, most of the comments tend to agree (not that their commenters are themselves an authority)

I agree that this has appeal for the un-meme'd. personally I am not a fan of LOL cats (really not a fan), but anybody who logs on should know something about them.
well done!

Thanks jme410. Glad you like it even with subjects you aren't usually drawn to - I appreciate your thoughtful comments!

Please retract your drastic statement...we are all worried about you.

grayehound wrote:Sure, distressing an image should be a basic skill for any designer. I have a mess of scraps of paper I did various scratches and marks on with black ink and anything from a wire brush to a crowquill pen to some random scrap of wood I found in the garage. I've scanned these and brought them into AI and Live Traced them with the Comic Art option. When I need one, I open it up, copy it and put it over the final image, then set the color to the same as the shirt color. I had to clean up this one some so the distressing wasn't obliterating words or important parts of the art. When I was happy with it, I selected everything and hit Merge, then deleted everything that was the shirt color.

There are sites all over that have free texture images you can use, but you need to have one that is both high contrast and 80-90% white so your image doesn't get completely obscured by the distress.



thanks for responding. I gave it a try yesterday on some practice images and was very pleased with the effect I was able to create. Much appreciated.

No. Yes.

Thank you both. The original intent with the legs was just to have it look like he was poised to throw the watermelon, but when I looked at the sketch, I thought ... you know, it works the parody angle.
I have to admit, I'm a bit nonplussed that it just isn't getting the votes.

What I think is funny is that Che would be very displeased to see his own face used as a marketing tool. It's irony, really.

Even though it's very possible we get Badger's Breakfast, Shirt Flowchart and Poker Game (none of which have lolcats - nor does Norris/cheezburger but that one's been to low to print)

tjost. am i imagining this? i see the text lines as the ingredients of a burger...
"all your" as the top bun.
"cheezburger" as the cheese.
norris as the meat.
"are belong to" as the bottom bun.
"norris" as a plate.

very clever. best of the derby imo

Considering the ambiguity of "do you own this shirt?" (It could easily mean either that exact, self-same piece of cloth, or a shirt with the same design), I don't know that I agree with your interpretation.

Regardless, encouraging stalking women (or anyone!) is not okay, even if the stalk-ee is wearing your actual shirt.

I liked this design a lot before I got to that corner of the flowchart but, frankly, could not wear it in good conscience with that on there.

Don't liter, pick that LOLcat off the ground and recycle it into another meme. This shirt includes, Ceiling cat, Monorail cat, and Longcat.

Also it has a halftone for the light blue color.

EDIT: Sorry I'm really tired but the recycle symbol idea was suggested to me by my good friend Mike Vega! That was an excellent suggestion. Thanks dude!

I want this on a t-shirt so much. Can you take it to another places to make it into a shirt if Woot doesn't realize what a mistake it is not printing this on to a shirt?

Very clever and very cool. If they don't put this on a shirt, I hope you take it to another t-shirt dealer that will. I want it.

Are you being serious?
The shirt wearer has it coming. Either A: she stole your shirt to get your attention and wants to be stalked. Or 2: she stole your shirt, get it back. Otherwise, the shirt is a joke and nobody is being stalked.

Re: Poker Game



Love the shirt, even though I'm not a rabid ST or SW fan. Uh, the NO STAR WARS rule is still there. Am i missing something? I see 2 SW characters on the shirt.

Considering how defensive and crazy everybody gets about following rules. I guess shirts in the fog get a pass, even though it should've been rejected already.
