Derby #603: Mother Lode

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.

Derby #603: THE MOTHER LODE

Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday (you’re welcome), so this week’s derby is all about moms. The things they say, the things they do, their uncanny ability to just “know stuff,” or the fear they strike in our hearts with THE LOOK. We’re looking for a range of designs that reflect the full spectrum of the meaning in "mom." You know, because motherhood isn't limited to those who have children. Or furbabies. Moms can come in all sorts of contexts. And being a mom can be beautiful and difficult, empowering and exhausting, or any other pair of words that basically mean motherhood is real, and real things are complex. So let's push for a mix of designs. Not just happy hearts and flowers. Cool? Cool. 

Also, no cats, no cream tees, and no designs that say 'Mother’s Day' (or any variation thereof). ​And don't forget to send in your art file. For real. 

 

HEY YOU! Yes you. Don't forget to email us your art file right after you submit your entry. $$$$$$$$.  

This Derby ends NEXT THURSDAY at noon. The 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place designs will be featured Friday - Sunday. Select designs will also be included in a sale that starts after the Weekend of Winners.

 

Next week's Derby preview: Dadism - Father's day is also coming soon (you're welcome, again). So next week's Derby will focus on dads & dadhood. And just like this week’s mom derby, we want a range of designs that reflect the cool and complicated and socks-and-sandals-wearing dadbod realness embedded in the concept of ‘Dad.’ No cats, no cream tees, no Luke/Darth artwork, and no designs that say ‘Father’s Day’ (or any variation thereof).​
