Wonderful design! Now this is the Edgar that I love. (So much more expressive than the amoeba imho.) Wonderfully creative and great shape on the shirt. Love the yellow tee too! I hope this is your week my friend! This is definite winner in my eye! GMV.

Re: i like books


I hope I don't get flamed for this, as it's really just my opinion, but I don't see the appeal of Edgar's shirts.

I mean, there's no disputing that guy has an amazing talent. He is much more artistic than I could ever hope to be, and he has a unique style, I just don't think it carries over onto shirts well. I can see his drawings in children's books, magazines, stuff like that; on clothing however, it just does nothing for me.

To each their own I guess ... good luck Edgar ...

You won't (almost) ever be flamed for honest, polite posts where you explain your thoughts. This was one of those. I do like edgar's work, although I don't know why, I think I just have a little too much weirdness in me. My better half is a Grammar & Literature teacher, so she would absolutely love this shirt in particular, and that is the primary reason it has GMV.

No offense, since of course you have a right to your opinion, but, unless you're using a ghost name, you've been here just over a week. I'm a bit confused on what you're basing your opinion on. Also, I don't see the appeal in most of the shirts every derby.
To me Edgar has genius, imagination and great designs. I would love a wardrobe of edgar shirts. YMMV of course.

In the last Derby he had a few shirts entered, and I read a post from someone talking about how he always gets "shafted" and never wins. That got me curious.

He seemed to have a bit of a following on the site, I mentioned that to my friend. That friend of mine, ( who also happens to be the one who referred me to the site ) showed me that ShirtDerbyStats site, which I used to look up his past work.

I am new here, so I did have to go back a little bit to see some of his past stuff ... and no, I'm not a ghost name for anyone ( I'm not that cool ... ;-) ).

*giggles* well I thought this was cool until my 4-year-old sister saw it on the screen and said "Hey, that looks like Spongebob cuddling up with a snake!" and i realized she kind of had a point. I still think it's cool, but I don't think I could wear it anymore.

I agree. I think this is a cool concept and has a lot of intricate details. It would work great on the cover of a children's book, but if I saw someone walking down the street wearing this, I would think it was just a big blob on their shirt.
