Yeah. And then they act like they didn't do anything. Humph. Cats.

Awesome shirt. I'm kind of surprised no Jedi cats printed, but this shirt was definitely deserving.

Congrats!

Mrrrrrrrrrhhhh :/

I was hoping for at least one kitties shirt that was "awesome" and not "cutesy"...

I appreciate the cat's nonchalance as (s)he licks her/his paw. Well played.

Wish my cats were that talented. They prefer to "sculpt" the sofa.

I'm here to say "Oh poop" for quite another reason. I can't believe I'm going to buy this, too, but here I go.

Agreed. I am incredibly disappointed that the lion shirt didn't print over any of the 3 Dot's Poetry Corner duck designs this weekend. Typical disappointing woot! voters. The cool unique shirts never seem to win.

In the category of "most likely to be printed" these Japanese Cherry tree shirts are beginning to give the cute turtle/penguin shirts a run for their money.

I'm surprised at these early negative reactions. I thought this was one of the more artistic designs this derby (no pun intended). I like it.

If the Siamese cat is smart enough to paint a tree that is representative of a completely different culture (Japanese Cherry Blossoms) why would it be dumb enough to lick toxic paint?

I agree! I definitely would put this in the arty column, rather than the cutesy column. I was glad to see it today & congrats to the artist of The Artist.

It's easier to be a hater than be constructive or complimentary.

I like the use of pink in the design. I didn't think that this particular design had much of a chance because of the color choice, but found it to be one of the more clever design entrys this time around.

(But I dearly with the rejected but very awesome "Copy Cat" by Walmazan was still in circulation because I think it would have printed)

I love it! I NEEDED it to wear to the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. I tried to be 1st sucker...and I was. So I'm happy.

It's a fine design. I'm just pointing out a predictable voting trend.

It definitely is more so than the two other winning shirts. I think it could stand to lose the tipped over paint can and the paw licking to help elevate it from cutesy stage... but you know, that's my heavily biased opinion

It is not hating, just frustration. We all have shirts we really want to win and for some of us, it seems like they never do for whatever reason. We just get cats and turtles.

thanks! is there a way to find these for each derby? because I saw the derby results but obviously, not all of them made it to print...

you know, it's like that "give a man a fish vs teaching him to fish" thing

this design is definitely more "artsy" than "cutesy." My top three picks all placed, which is rare. i think some of you guys just don't like it because it's a more feminine-looking design and uses the color pink. I'm sure it'll be back to cartoony zombie ninja Star Wars designs soon, so don't despair.

And penguins...by golly, do we get penguins.

Frusstration I get. I was miffed that the "Copy Cat" design got rejected because it was really the only design that I could see myself wearing. Not that there weren't other cool designs in the fog, just that the one I was most likely to buy got axed.

The thing that irked me about the negative posts, and forgive me for not being clearer, was that the slam felt like it was more towards the voters and less on the design.

I mean to an extent it was toward voters as the voters control what prints. Aside from that, I don't like the design because it wasn't well thought out. Why would a Siamese cat that has nothing to with Japan, be grouped with a Japanese icon? They are different cultures and represent two very different ideals in our culture. And then the cat licks the paint, which just seemed to make the design less of a artistic ideal and more of a cute twist on a cherry blossom shirt.

Besides the resources GT pointed you to, there's also a great resource created by a community member that quickly links you to every derby and shows the winners and all the entries. Just remember that the only ones still for sale though are the ones on the Reckoning (Link in upper right of the page) or on the weekly sales that you'll see pop-up on the front page. This week's is the Adorable Edible Wearables and it ends at midnight tomorrow.

I agree. I'd like to see more comments on the designs even if you don't agree with the voters. The artist deserves some feedback. IMHO.

For the most part, I don't think people want to "slam" the artist. This IS a great design. Most of the frustration people express is going to be aimed at the voters. For example, I'm not going to get mad at someone for making yet another turtle/penguin shirt...that's their bread and butter. But I'll express my frustration with voters who vote for the same turtle week after week after week.

I loved this design and the other one that had a somewhat similar concept. I think I might have to get this shirt too - which means two for this weekend! I guess I'm a sucker for cats.

Yes! This was the one I wanted to buy out of this week's fog, and I was starting to think it wouldn't print. Third, first, whatever, just as long as it printed! In for one!

Thank you for your comments and votes everyone! I was really surprised when this hit the fog--and now a print?! Yeah, it's more than one culture represented, but this is America, the great melting pot, right?

Love the design but had to comment on the flavor text....

"Yes, dear, I will be sure to hang Mr. Fuzz-Fuzz’s 1st Place certificate in the living room just as soon as I get done lining his litter box with my Honorable Mention. Now can we please chance the subject?"


just out of curiosity, how do you chance a subject? Is that a gambling thing? Can I get in on the action? LOL
