Hey all.. If you've ever had to rake leaves, you know the havoc wind can be to your efforts...

It's interesting that it's the absence of leaves that make the words, so does this still fit the theme of art making words? I like the leaves, they look really cool, I'm just wondering if the rejectonator might axe this.

Also that is very clearly a font used to make the words.

It's negative space created by leaves and the negative space creates letters... so I would say this works.

negative space is just as artistic as positive elements, and a rake as good as a paintbrush. (remember those black wax scratch boards as a kid with the rainbow colors underneath?)

Very funny. I wish the leaves were a different texture and the guy was actually drawn (the picture doesn't quite fit together imo) but still a very hilarious design.

I wonder if Woot can print this? Hopefully this doesn't get rejected because it is unprintable...that's a lot of super close colors.

Yeah, I'm a little concerned with the printability too... consider that the spiral on the cheeks of the recent Season of Change shirt didn't print- my guess is that is it was too small a detail to print properly. If that was too tiny to print I have my doubts about whether this is remotely possible... I do like the design though.

I'm pretty sure thats not printable...those leaves look to have gradients and i'm not sure they aren't pictures.

How in the world did you make this? It looks pretty intricate. I'm assuming you didn't draw each leaf by hand....Did you?

I like it, but i don't think it's "hilarious". I guess it's cause I'm in Florida where we don't have to rake the leaves.

This is obviously just a font that you surrounded with leaves. I think the "Trick or Treat" entry, while i wouldn't buy it because it's so seasonal hit the nail on the head with this theme. But this one skirts the edge of eligibility, IMO.

this is.. just, awful. awful. i can't stand people who say 'I am an un-original person' as if they are being clever. i would rather not perpetuate it.

so, let me get this straight... woot's own filters take F A I L and turn it into 'i am an un-original person'. so i suppose woot already agrees with me.

Re: It was supposed to read FALL


Have we heard back from the artist yet as to:
1. Are the leaves photos, or hand done?
2. Was a font used for the negative-space letters?

I wondered the same thing and there has been no answer from the artist. I have seen this design before but can't remember where.

If you've seen the design before, then its because you were looking over my shoulder.
As for making the leaves, i used the picture tube feature of paintshop pro with leaf designs i created to overlay all those individual leafs. The typeface is a simple block letter, but i get anal about my typography, so i did reference a font for kerning, spacing size, etc.

Any other questions?

Just found this browsing around past derbies - how did this not win?! Brilliant! I WANT ONE!

I refuse to answer on the grounds that I don't know the answer.
