Derby #152: De-evolution

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

Here’s a pop quiz: what 20-years-overdue event finally occurred June 15? DEVO released their newest album, Something for Everybody! And to commemorate the occasion, Woot’s partnering with Kent State’s finest regressing Homo sapiens themselves, DEVO! We want you to create a design that best illustrates the idea of de-evolution: not the band, but the regression of mankind itself. Put pen to shirt and illustrate how, why, or when despite all our shiny gadgets we actually started undoing our evolutionary progress. By “we,” we mean humanity, not specifically us here at Shirt.Woot. Put on your best yellow jumpsuit and, yes, crack that whip. On yourself. You’ve only got a week!

And yes, you have access to actual DEVO assets, which you can download HERE. You can use ONLY the included DEVO-approved images and ideas, everything else in your design must be original.

Additional rules, as always, apply:

You must use at least ONE of the DEVO-centric images. The images cannot be altered.

No Star Wars, video games, or any other reference to a copyrighted work other than the pre-approved DEVO assets mentioned above.

Any band member likeness or silhouette must be an original work.
No tracing.

Our winning design will be hand-picked by DEVO themselves, with second place being chosen by our usual Derby voting and third place being selected by the editorial staff here at Shirt.Woot.

In addition to the usual Shirt.Woot payout, DEVO is upping the ante with fabulous prizes:
