I love this, but there's something wrong with the position of the design. I'm fine with the color, but I'm pushing myself not to buy any more shirts for a while, so it doesn't matter too too much what I think.

well its obvious WHY you didn't get yours posted before the monkey shirt...
it takes a bit longer to create original art with a vector illustration program than to slap some clip art together... is clip art even allowed? ah well, it got rejected anyway.
congrats on the votes! you're almost to the fog.

Great design, but don't like the color. It is not just greedy - I think the title should be kleptomaniac..

I'm not sure, but I thought kleptomania was a condition where a person was unable to control their thieving, i.e. stealing without even being aware of their crimes. This image is clearly not that. =P

You can't. You need to buy something from any woot site first.

This design so perfectly embodies the topic that I don't understand how it could possibly not get into the top three! I wish I could think of (and execute) something like it. Great job!

Re: Oooo Shiney!


Even if I really like some of the designs in the derbies, it's very rare that I see one that I'd want to actually buy as a shirt. The problem with this derby is there's now two that I know I'm most likely gonna end up being unable to resist (assuming they're both printed).

Not super crazy about the placement, but it's a cool idea expressed wonderfully by the great illustration. I love the cop.

You know, what I REALLY like about this shirt apart from what everyone else is saying, is the expression on the Mona Lisa. She just knows this is a bad idea and is looking on with (somewhat justified) schadenfreude.

If you like mythical animals, enjoy browsing my site! All of the work is my own. Why, yes, I've been doing this for a while now, why do you ask? If you're looking for my Woot entries they're here at my other site. Thank you for your interest!

If this loses to the frickin' penguin shirt, I will know that the votes are cooked. I can't even see it losing to globe hugger.

And you'll get some good coin to help pay for tuition.

I'm not so sure any more, the pengiun is what people seem to like (which somewhat confuses me) and the king has been in the fog from the beginning (which I think it is definitely deserving). out of those in the fog I think I'll be the one to go at this rate.

this is by far the best design i've seen for this derby. The clever idea and amazingly done image are perfect. I will definitely be getting one if it is in the top 3. I actually removed my votes from the penguin and slug so this one could make it back on top.

Keep on voting! This shirt rules.

don't be discouraged. you have amazing talent, it just sometimes takes awhile to click with woot voters. I wouldn't be surprised if this prints, it's funny and very well drawn. I won't be buying it because i don't like the placement or size and don't feel it's very well balanced, but I definitely look forward to more entries from you.

Re: Oooo Shiney!


Just wanted to add my voice to what I love about this design:
1) The drawing style is classic and I like its hand-drawn-ness.
2) Love that it tells a story. As a playwright, it inspires me to maybe figure out what that story is (could be that we've got someone who's a compulsive thief and is about to be be caught, thus leading to his reformation; or he's NOT going to be caught, encouraging even bigger and more daring thievery; or maybe it's just a comical character study about this particular thief and his adventures in crime, each one more ridiculous than the last).
3) The color of the star gives it an extra pop and draws your eye right to the heart of the "story."
4) The various items he's already stolen are hilarious.

Thanks for a great design, and if you don't win, at least know that you've put a smile on a lot of people's faces with a great drawing. But I hope you *do* win - if you're in the top 4 I'll be staying up 'til midnight each night this weekend so I can grab it when it comes up!

No, you aren't blind, the voting has closed for Derby #37: Greed. Voting ends every thursday at noon. That being said, I noticed you haven't bought any woots with your account. In order to vote in the derby, you need to buy at least one woot. This is to prevent people from creating duplicate accounts and voting more than once for a shirt. If you want to know the full details and the schedule of events, go to shirt.woot.com/derby and scroll all the way to the bottom.

aha. You see, this is the same person, but on her old account.
I made a new one because I made a new email, and so I want to become organized, and have my stuff centered on one email, or something like that.
Anyways, so I've bought a woot before, on this account, and I saw the buttons, and I clicked some of them. (This is for the current Derby).
Thanks for taking time to answer my question, I just didn't see the extra text at the bottom of the voting page

Know that some of that stuff is outdated. They don't announce the winners until they go up for sale now and the new theme is announced on Thursday, etc. ^_^
