Lots of time and lots of patience, not to mention an understanding and generous wife who was dealing with a sick baby all day, Sheesh!

Re: Mother Goose


Wow all I have to say is this is possibly the best design I have ever seen on woot, it is by far the most original and thought provoking, basically if woot doesnt pick this Im done with woot, and I will never buy another shirt and I will tell friends and family to never buy anything off woot because I have seen too many ingenious designs get turned down and stupid girly cartoon designs win instead.

Nicely done, a little loose on the theme, but beautifully rendered.

I agree 100%. This is by far the best design in this derby (which is saying something as I designed one) and i have no clue how it is not in the fog. Definitely got my vote and I hope it wins so I can buy one.

Thanks to those of you who have wanted this on a t-shirt. I want it as a poster or painting in our kid's bedroom. I've been thinking about trying to make a website where he can sell his stuff that doesn't sell here, but until we get that going, we'll both have entries probably every week we can think of something for the derby.

I speak for Dirtius Maximus because I'm his wife. And because this was my idea, after all. He's very obviously the artist of the family though.

So thanks for your support. It's great to see other people like his work as much as I do.

Re: Mother Goose


I'm going to play the devil's advocate on this one. It sort of gives me the creeps.
There's that un...pie...and the look on Humpty's face (acid?) ...and the back end of the cow. Obviously, the drawing is excellent and it's very well executed but the color scheme and those elements give me an icky feeling somewhere in my soul.

Wow really woot doesn't pick them? Ohh we pick them right? Wow I had no idea.....no ****, people like you are the reason woot always ends up with cartoon girl shirts. It seems like ignorance is truly bliss....

Woot picks 4 a week and the masses pick 3. Two of the shirts in your signature are shirts picked by woot and two are shirts picked by the voters. So, to be fair, you need to blame woot and the people, not just one.

Re: Mother Goose



I am amazed this shirt isn't doing better. Maybe there's a way to submit it to a big design house that does graphic tees for kohls, tjmax, or someplace else. This is such an awesome design i'd hate to see it go to waste just because it doesn't get printed at woot

Well, I certainly intend to to something with this after the 30 day hold if Woot doesn't pick it as an honorable mention.

Or, you know, however long that hold is.
