I love this one, it reminds me of the book "are you my mother?"

Re: Mommy?

This one is absolutely awesome. Wish it was a tad smaller, but a great design regardless ++

That was my first thought as well.

(Unofficial) Derby Rules (outdated?)
Designing for the Derby (definitely outdated)
Tips for New Designers (always useful)

Re: Mommy?

Well it was'nt winning so I'm not too upset, however, I do not copy other artist's work. I have stuff all over the internet and am an acomplished illustrator and freelance artist. I did recognize the similarity once I saw it, but the shirt pales in comparisson and it was'nt even printed anyway. Whatever. I don't copy.

You're right that yours was better. But woot does say it has to be original art - meaning that it hasn't been done before (I guess that means submitted counts).

while it's true that the IDEA isn't original, the artwork is. other than the concept there's absolutely no resemblance between the 2 styles. what about the various "mom tattoo" shirts? those have been done before as well.

Thanks toe. I could'nt have said it better myself. I see people on this site copy ideas that are right next to them on the derby board just because the idea takes off. Woot seems to be ok with these... How many Poe (raven) references did we have to look the week of the "text only" derby?

Yours was like a shirt that had been printed already. Almost exactly the same concept. Woot doesnt reject if both the designs are in the same contest because neither has been printed yet.

Obviously you don't know Threadless. That shirt design was just that, A Design... It never made print. The concept did not start there either I can assure you.
