Either way I still love this design and will absolutely be buying it if it wins



In the Muppet Babies he was actually an alien from the planet crouton, put into an escape pod before the planet turned normal, then found by a bunch of chickens...

I dig the inclusion of Robin though, that made my day ^_^

(love your sig line, btw)



Yes your and ochopika's comments prompted my to add the seventh color and depth respectively. Many thanks to both of you.

I'm glad you like it; it's turned out to be my favorite shirt project so far.

Glad you liked the signature!

Well that's scary. Kinda makes it sound like the robot wasn't really at fault here though. Plus the design is a little misleading.

Hmm... perhaps Donnie didn't read the rules. No matter, I predict this will be rejected within 24 hours.

Re: 1984 guizmo power



Hey Donnie, did you read the rules? There are 3 designs almost in a rule all under the name Donnie, and they are for the years 1939, 1984, and 1993 - the derby theme is to create a design based on the year you were born.

Donniie has been reincarnated several times, in 1984, in 1985, and in 1997.
Who knows we may get more from previous or future lifes. Perhaps from Shakespeare's first performance or the end of the world?

Nerd Alert!
I agree. Also, there is no way for the light/shadow patterns on the three objects in space to exist with a single light source (i.e. the sun). But I just chock that up to artistic license.

Re: 1986: An ASCII Odyessy



According to super reliable sources (i.e. Wikipedia), HAL became operational on Jan. 12, 1992 (in the fictional universe). Theoretically , I could design a T-shirt based on HAL. Too bad you've blown any idea I would have had out of the water with this design.

Yes, that's exactly what I was talking about.

I adore art and if you have artistic criticisms then go right ahead and let them be heard. I would never ask someone to bite their tongue and just say nice things only. If you have issues with a shirt or theft then by all means, speak up. The comments I was talking about, which are no longer here, were incredibly rude and insulting to the artist, not his shirt. There was no mention of the shirt in their comments. They were flat out childish, it was name calling and other nonsense. When I see comments like that on a popular artist's submission I automatically assume that they're childish attention whores jealous of someone else.

Leaving negative feedback is fine with me, I have no issues with it as long as you are intelligent and mature about it. Many of you have made it clear that you don't like the artist's style and choices, and you have valid points. I may not agree with everything you say, but I respect your opinion. It's when people start acting crude and saying totally rude pointless things that I get annoyed. I mean, this isn't 4chan. This a fun site full of all kinds of awesome - I love the hilarious personalities, just not the trashy ones.

Previous to working on my design I searched as well and never came across this far side comic. So I thought the idea was fresh and funny and just like the Simpsons, its been done before. But this is not a direct lift as you stated tarmawolf as you can see from the original comic. As to it being done as a tee design, I can asure it has not.

Thank you to everyone else who has supported this design and dig it.




Agreed. It's completely different. Ideas can't be copy written, that doesn't even make any sense. It isn't similar in composition, style, or color, so it was not "lifted". Just wanted to clarify and let the artist know that they're design is great. And even if someone has had a similar idea, it's because great minds think alike.

Re: 1997, first died

OK over exuberant moderators, I'll be less succinct.
Donniie, stop shoehorning the same handful of designs into every derby. This one in particular was already rejected because Woot can't print it.
Give it up, man.
For everyone else, here's Donniie's shirtwhat

How's that, mods?

You should have flipped the Navi's track, making it look more like a "Z" instead a "S". :P

The glow effect is really nice, indeed. I'm buying it if it prints.
