That's right, Shirt.Wooters, it's Double-Take time again! We're digging back through the pile of Honorable Mentions from Derby #277 all the way up to #239, minus our last Double-Take of course. So artists, take a break and do some voting. This could be your last chance to snag that shirt you wished had printed the first time!

Designers: if in the meantime you've opted out of including your design in the Double-Take Derby, or sold/submitted your Honorable Mention design somewhere else, email us at shirt@woot.com by noon tomorrow and let us know. Any design found submitted for voting to another site, sold on another site, or for sale on another site will not be eligible for the Double-Take Derby and will be removed from consideration. Because we're jealous like that.

Woooo, I think I have 3 designs for this one.

Aww come on woot! Give us a little hint of what the next derby theme is so I can think about it and procrastinate.







This should be it for me.

Apparently no clues to the next derby theme for those of us sitting in steerage... guess it's time to work on that daily!

That's my double-take celebration whistle. It's the vuvuzela of the art world.

I know there's an avalanche of great returning designs. I'll have three buried in there somewhere:

Um.... "Honorable Mentions from Derby #277 all the way up to #239" woot? Also, this wasn't supposed to be until next week. Right?

Hey guy, keep an eye (no pun intended with the Pirate theme) for my desing on this DT. And the timing is perfect with all that snow coming down right now!

I'm pumped for this one. So many shirts that I've wanted that have just missed the mark. I see a few of them above.

Yeah, so there's that...

My wife and I had a running arguement about weather a certain shirt that made the fog was Off Topic or not, and this shirt was the one she used as her proof that I didn't know what the Topic was.

Also, I love the shirt, but always thought the Comet-Die should have been a 1, not a 20.

It's a typo. Should be #229 through #239 inclusive (so 11 weeks of entries). That's fairly standard timing. Other times it's been off a week because of a bag derby or other event they might not want to include.

Head start for Derby #242:

One Word

One word, one color. Your word has to be made up of art, no fonts. So basically objects, animals, whatever, organized in such a way as to form a single word.

Yeah, sorry guys. A typo on my part. By my math it should include #227(Sci-Fi Kawaii) through #239(The Year You Were Born Redux). If you spot an error with that, please let me know so we can catch it before the DT derby goes up.

Pop Culture allowed or no? Although, I have to imagine that trying to form the word Mario or Mushroom, for example, wouldn't tread to close the copyright infringement--I'm wondering if it is allowed.

Pop culture is allowed, but tread lightly with the word part of it. If you're going to work in a reference, I would recommend doing it with art, with normal copyright rules applied. Using show/movie/game/character titles as your word is playing with rejection fire. Obviously it's ultimately up to the discretion of whoever is moderating the derby that week (this is definitely not always me, so keep that in mind when emailing to complain/plead your case).

The rules are you can use just one color of your choosing. Your design must be a single word and that word must be made up of art, no fonts allowed. Pop-culture is allowed, but normal copyright rules apply.

So does this mean only one spot color allowed? Could make for some drab looking designs...

Just wanted to be sure before starting.

Yes, one spot color. I think one color designs can be hugely impactful! I'm really excited to see what comes out of this one. Good luck!

As I think about it, there are many artists here who will be able to create some really nice looking designs with this concept.

Hmmm...I'll do some bright yellow on white!

Maybe I should go study up on color theory.

I'm thinking that "COEXIST" (and its variants) is the prime example of this theme.

Agreed. Not every shirt has to be a master class on halftone gradients.
