Derby #37: Greed

Greedy Weed

This looks really cool, but I can't tell which one is supposed to be greedy.

Rejected because: This looks really cool, but I can't tell which one is supposed to be greedy.

You don't see the weed's root wrapping around the flowers root, in a sense strangling the flower? I think this is awesome, and it fits the theme perfectly. I would love to see this printed.

That's EXACTLY what I was trying to illustrate here. Oh well, obviously it wasn't clear to the rejectorator either and it wasn't exactly burning up the hot list anyway.
C'est la vie.

I think the greed aspect is there, you just have to look for it.
Maybe a slight alteration would make it clearer to the judges. Even if it doesn't catch on this week, who knows it could be someone's editor's pick down the line. Or at least submit it to DBH or something, it's a great design. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for your support but I think I'm gonna sit this one out. After the 60 days I might sub it at DBH or unetee...(where it'll still be largely ignored, heh.) If it ever gets printed, I'll let you know

Re: Greedy Weed


Where do you guys get the alternative shirt used for shirt compositions? I can't seem to find the one that people (like you) use. Help me out a little.

Re: Greedy Weed


I cannot believe this got rejected because it wasn't 'clear' which plant was supposed to be greedy. Obviously the greed was noticed if you can't even tell which plant was supposed to be the greedy one, and that's the theme this week, is it not?? Yet a cupcake in a bear trap, which is getting pretty close to the fog, gets to stay in the derby. A cupcake in a bear trap? WOW, that shows greed WAY better than this shirt. No, a cupcake in a bear trap doesn't show greed at all, but then again this shirt probabaly wasn't made for a 9 year old and well, a cupcake in a bear trap I can only guess a kid would wear, and that's all woot seems to be targeting in this derby. Although, you can go find a cupcake shirt at any department store for a few bucks if you'd like to buy one for your kid, and call it greed. Then you wouldn't even have to wait for it to ship.
