Navy would seem the obvious choice since that's the actual background color, but silver it is. Still one of the best designs in this particular derby.

Oh look, I swallowed a rabbit whole.
Perhaps without the tunnel it wouldn't look so much like an esophagus and stomach.

Rant: Electronic files, to me, have little inherent value. Oh sure, you can buy them, but that's it. You can't collect 1st print ebooks, you can't get ebooks autographed, and you can't sell them or lend them without getting in trouble.



Well, to be fair, you CAN lend them if you have the right e-reader

Re: The Blue Fairy



Someone already used this description- but the perfect word for this shirt is whimsical, it just oozes whimsy. I also love love love the shirt color with this design. Here's hoping it's added to my wardrobe!!

One more gargleblaster I flipped a lid when I saw this shirt. I love love love these books. I don't know if it will get enough votes to get into the fog but it's GMV. <3

Re: [url=http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=53747]A



It is a pretty shirt, but unfortunately, it says "'5adi4-f ac" not "reading", and even that is iffy.
A braille letter is composed of a pattern of six dots within a single 2x3 cell, but the row of cells has to have a common baseline in order to be "read." Dropping dots below that baseline makes it a different letter (or symbol, or short-form word, or contraction.) So I get you wanted seven letters, but you ended up with 14 cells. Braille has an ungodly amount of rules determining how and when you use certain combinations of dots, so how the combinations are read is determined by the context. The only reason I could get anything out of the pattern is because I volunteer with helping a teacher of the vision impaired interline her beginning Braille students homework. Little kids can Braille some funky stuff trying to trick up the teacher!

Sorry I'm "that person" today, I really did like what you are trying to do. I just don't want you to end up with a tattoo that says soup instead of courage, if you know what I mean.

Re: Reading Rocket Ship



This reminds me of Boots' shirt from a year or so ago, the child reaching for the stars. I bought that one for my son, but he's outgrown it. This would be a good replacement. GMV

Really? You think Melville was taking an "immature and needless jab at people's deeply held beliefs" when he published Moby boghog?

Perhaps every literature professor is secretly anti-religion, right? Moby boghog is an allegory. I can't help it if you didn't see anything past a story about a whale.

Here's the Cliffs Notes version for you;

Whale = Jesus/God

The whole novel was about a man trying to find meaning, trying to find reason, and ultimately obsessed with vengeance against a god who he believes wronged him and (worse) abandoned him.

And regardless of my personal views this seems a quite immature and needless jab at people's deeply held beliefs.

Re: The Real Treasure



This charming is so fun and whimisical. I've always wanted a treasure chest in which to store all of my favorite books. (Until I realized that all of my favorite books probably wouldn't be able to fit in one treasure chest...)

And I love the composition of it. You used the space really well, and I have a certain fondness for designs that are placed on the side of a shirt, rather than right smack dab in the middle.

Hope this prints! (And can I get a poster of this? Pretty please?)

Re: Epic Battle



The hat completely lacks any dimensionality. It looks like a piece of cardboard taped to the book.

The hat is still completely two dimensional, not to mention there's really no parody whatsoever.

Re: London and his Dogs



I saw this in the pre-derby, it made me so mad and happy all at the same time... I was gonna do Buck in a call of the wild design, being as I love Jack London, and I love dogs (One of my favorite authors, my dog is named Jack).

This is really well drawn and executed, I hope you place so I can get this one.
