Can you make anything original? This idefinitely a world you didn't create and one that has been well traveled already at woot and elsewhere. The simple idea of profitting off of free software is reprehensible not to mention already against the rules.

Beyond that at least try to show some artistic integrity. Bill Watterson was fiercely opposed to the commercialization of his characters which is why he never licensed the IP. It's insulting that so many so called artists spit on his wishes especially since there is absolutely no parody whatsoever in this design. Bad form.



I can tell you're a Calvin & Hobbes and Bill Watterson fan, but seriously... come off it, now. There have been several Calvin and Hobbes shirts produced across the intertubez. I respect Watterson as an artist, but I see absolutely no reason to shun fan art, parodies, etc of his work.

Plus, I don't see how this is a betrayal of the derby rules. This guy is not a celebrity likeness. It's not an all-text shirt. It's not a map of a copyrighted and pre-existing fictional world. The shirt's fine.

I like the shirt. I hope it prints.

Plus, the fox looks cute-sy without being overwhelmingly cute. +1

This will no doubt be rejected. It's a dungeon map from The Legend of Zelda, a part of a fictional world you did not create.

Which is why I'm equally perplexed about the rejection. And yes, a Yellow Brick Rd exists in Missouri too.

Re: Not in Kansas anymore



I don't hate the concept, although I do think it would have been just as funny, and had more depth if it showed an X on missouri instead of the "you arent here" X on kansas.

As for rejection, I definitely think both sides can argue down to the wire and still be unsure, considering the wording and the strictness of the one rule debated here.

I would say you could argue that the map is NOT of Oz. However, it would be hard to argue that they are not IN Oz, considering the characters used and what the map is a reference to.

I guess it depends on how strict the rejectionator is. BUT, the rejectionator DID reject the first design even though you COULD argue parody.

So in order to be consistent, this should get rejected. According to the first rejection, the rejection was due to the fact that she was IN the fictional world, not because the map was OF the fictional world, which seems different than the wording of the actual rule.

In order to bypass the rejection, you would have to argue that she is NOT in Oz. The argument that the map is not OF Oz seems irrelevant to the original rejection premise.

I guess in my opinion, the original rejection was worded wrongly, and implies that setting matters and maps that are in a setting are assumed to be of the same setting.

Bah, whether or not this passes, let's make sure the axe is consistent.

I think you should've kept the map the same as the original because I think it feels too obvious here.

Re: Not in Kansas anymore



I miss the Yellow Brick Road, and think it's absolute BS that they rejected the previous version. The map wasn't of a fictional world, it was, as you've pointed out, of the real world. And the yellow bricks, while indicative of the Yellow Brick road were certainly not a map. Still dig the design, though. Just wish the folks running this derby would stick to the letter of their own rules.

I don't often use the word "genius". . . . but I am genius for voting for this design.

Bad ideas free; brilliant ideas by derangement.

Here is why it looks different:

Spaceman Spiffs world was of sharply drawn landscapes and a thin Calvin. This blonde doesn't look much like Calvin and the landscape is fuzzy, like a charcoal drawing.

What told me this was Spiff was the round spaceship (that also looks like the Jetson's version) and the unseen tentacled beast.

I haven't used Firefox regularly since v3.22 and that was only a few months ago. What is it up now to, v7? It's almost like it's trying hard to get better but ends up feeling like the same thing over and over...
