Re: WHERE'S WALDO?


I made this a tad less subtle. Heh.

I like the original MUCH better...the subtlety was key. But then again, only reason it wasn't number one (imo) is because it's hard to catch on a quick glance and people aren't letting it all soak in. Good luck.

I agree. It's too obvious now. Part of the joke was that some people (like me) wouldn't notice WALDO at first. When I first saw it in the derby thread (before submissions opened), I thought it was a terrible design. Then I noticed someone said it was funny. I had no idea why and had to take a second look. I felt embarassed - which is why the shirt was so great. =P

See this is half-joking. My design was doomed I think because people saw it and thought it was just some blocks.

Well, hopefully this entry will get more votes for your original (http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=14008). Really, just an awesome design. I'd sign up for 99 more accounts to vote, but only if I could buy 3 of those shirts with each one...but that would mean I wouldn't have to sign up for more accounts...quite the conundrum. Hopefully it gets picked up one way or another.

That's exactly what I saw at first. I had to sit there for a minute or two trying to figure out what it was all about. I think it's one of the best designs this week. Most people, though, will only spend a second or two looking at entries when they vote.
