Re: GOLDFISH



From shirt color to placement to the artistry of the design itself, I like everything about this design.

I have to admit, that I was more than half won over simply because it's the first design I've seen in a long while that was a top, centered design.

Re: Nobody wants to play!



Excellent work from both of you guys. I liked the concept when first posted in the pre-derby thread, but wasn't sure what style would work for the execution of it.

Looks like concept and style of you both came out pretty clearly and well.

Don't normally like the more artsy ones (I like tee shorts that make me look 12), but I really like this.

I wish this hadn't gotten rejected. /: It was SO adorable, and I honestly wouldn't have been surprised if I had won.

Not buying any more shirts until they bring back AA.

Nice! They remind me of two Sparklers twirling around each other. Happy days of my youth ~ GMV

Re: The One That Got Away



Guys often talk about the one that got away. The perfect gal they let slip out of their life, or the giant fish that just barely escaped capture during a legendary fishing trip. Guys sharks aren't much different ; )

I hope this design tickles your funny bone.

I adore this design. It does a great job capturing the energy and pathos of the quotation. I can't believe I don't see any other Moby Bubba Bo Bob Brain references with this Derby.

Thanks for the comments guys! I felt like the saying was probably a little obscure, but I was too thoroughly amused making it to let that stop me.

Seriously! Every time I see something that I wouldn't expect to have been made by ramyb (because it's not a cute fluffy animal/penguin--which, I have a few of, don't get me wrong), I get absolutely floored and if I had more money onhand, I'd have bought every single non-cutesy that popped up.

*huff huff huff*

+1 and seconded, love your more serious work e=when we get to see it. Very beautiful!

Re: BANANA SQUID!!!



Chump magic, you are teh awesome. And I can't help but wonder if I know you due to the hundreds of references I've made to banana squids over the past year. If so, thank you for taking my crazy and making a shirt. If not... are you currently seeing anyone? Cause, banana squid! No one ever sees it coming.

Now 100% chock full of little wind-up robots!

Re: Shipwreck



I think the shirt color really helps make this a wonderful shirt. Not only is it a stunning design but it's on a color that is not seen often.

It's difficult to see where the image is on the shirt. Center? Right? Left?

Re: SEA-HORSE



I really like the style...but the horse has some non-horse anatomy. Back legs seem to have three joints, and the eyes are on the front, not the side. Sorry, but that would bug me too much. :/ I clicked, WANTING to vote...

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Love is not the motivating factor here - only freedom from the shackles which hold us down and prevent us from rising to our highest potential. Freedom that can only be earned with bolt cutters, an oxy-acetylene blowtorch, and one fish committed to the daunting task at hand.


You've got something against love?! lol joking, good idea and very funny, I love the goggles

In my opinion, you almost need the orca in the background. Why else would they all be pretending to be an orca? They're trying not to get eaten by the one that's hunting, so they're trying to look like an orca themselves. I don't think the shirt would have the same impact without the real orca in the background.

I thought the same thing. Well you know what they say: great minds think alike, then oversaturate the derby with the mines and pufferfishes.

I love this one! Very clever role reversal, sharks talking about the one that got away. I want this shirt to own!
