Thanks Jemma! I was inspired by my nephews and niece who play hockey and live in Minnesota. While they aren't in Canada, the theme will still carry over well if it wins. The kids will be gaga for it.

Zomg! I <3 this shirt!!! I absolutely must have one! I <3 Moose, I <3<3 Canada and I <3<3<3 Hockey!!! This one totally got my vote. The only thing that would make me happier about this shirt is if it were on a black tee...any way that might be a possibility?

Couldn't do a black tee because I have to leave the shirt and helmet colors open to the shirt color behind. The black is a top layer. But having it on Cranberry is good. I have a cranberry colored shirt from woot and it's a nice dark color. It's like a maroon or burgandy (without the bluer hues). I thank you for the votes though! I really would like to see this one printed!

Bummer if woot deems it too similar(don't mean to jinx) I like the leaf behind it and much simpler and thereby cuter. Almost on the cute factor of Li'l Nessie!

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!
...a number of shirts on teetrade.com

I don't really see the similarity. Aside from a moose and a hockey stick.

It's not the same. Yes, a moose playing hockey, but it's not the same. And I find it rude that you put a 'buy it now' in my thread. I drew this from scratch and that would be like telling anyone who does a moose, or refers to hockey or does a leaf, that it's been done before and needs to be removed. My design is original and I have the sketch to prove it.

I REALLY am not trying to get this rejected, but for what it's worth: This shirt is an anthropomorphic moose playing hockey. The other shirt is an anthropomorphic moose playing hockey. This shirt was not copied from other shirt, but do feature the same content. Was it inspired by the other shirt? Probably not, but obviously impossible to prove. Some "consistency" of rejections is purely a pipe dream, I realize, but there was a shirt rejected in this derby that wasn't too different of a situation. Cheese's curling stone & croosbrooms was rejected for being too similar to an entry from Adder for a previous derby. It was obviously designed from scratch, the other shirt isn't available for purchase, but the similarities of the concept were enough for the rejection. Again, I'm just offering my ramblings, not saying the decision should go one way or another.

Is this going to become the next flying penguin?

I hope not, because this is a cute shirt by a creative designer. Of course, every shirt in each derby is gonna have someone start whining about it. Kind of like a right of passage!

I understand what you are trying to say, Blu. But again, if that was the case, then every stereotypical reference in this derby would be trashed. Add the fact that the moose in that link is copyright clip art that someone is trying to use to make a shirt for profit, and it's not I who should be removed, but rather hers from cafepress.com. Cafepress has much the same rules that woot has in using artwork that is not yours for profit.

I was just saying if someone really liked yours and you didn't make the finals, that they could buy something comparable already existing at cafepress. I wasn't trying to be rude, and I find that remark a little hurtful.

It definitely came across like you were trying to discredit the entry... Maybe next time reconsider the wording. ^_^

Yeah I have to agree with this here. When people advertise for other items, or post graphics like that, I have gotten defensive, and rightfully so in most cases. There have been other people who have done this to discredit me as well as other designers. And as a new person with only 3 posts and no purchases, I had my doubts as to the sincerity of the post. I apologize if I misjudged your actions, MWH. The drama that has been created here week after week by some people has been too easy to just jump on and try to stop any kind of attack.


edit: I retract this comment seeing I was right and it was Sayah attacking my entries.... again.

I agree with you Jaden. In looking through these designs there are only a few that I would wear. This would have been one of them. If woot is going to apply the rule that you used another shirt to get an idea then they need to reject the Periodic table. Dmitri Mendeleev designed / developed that years ago so I would consider that a knock off as well.

Agreed, I've also seen many many shirts with polar bears and maple leaves, so how can the shirts in the fog not be rejected?

I loved this shirt.

Thanks you two... and to anyone else who was upset by this. I'll probably get this printed on my own once the 60 days are over. I thank you guys for being supportive.
