BootsBoots,

I really do like your designs. Keep them coming. I'll be watching for when you print some of your previous entries.

I personally would like Hector to stand out a little more, but otherwise, I agree with the rest of your fan club. ;)

This one is hilarious! I kind of like cream as a shirt color, and it looks great with this design! GMV.

The 'different' eggs are always the good eggs in my book. Go Hector!

Love the muted colours here. Do I have to say it again? Ok, I will. GMV! Yeah!

Thanks!

Hi!
It's called "Sweeep." I forget where I got it, though. Thanks for your first comment, too

Yeah. I kind of agree with you. I think it's kind of fun to find him, but only if you have the text with it. If I print this one myself later or sub it somewhere else, I think I'm going to incorporate the text into the design.

Sankya for the comments, you guys. Sankya very much.

Hahahaha, i've seen this design a couple times scrolling through, but it took me a couple looks to realize the "unique" one :P You have a awesome style that I always look forward to seeing in the derbies

I agree the text included would be nice, but I kind of like it without--since most people wouldn't see him right away, he'd be like your own little eevil secret...=)
I love it no matter what, though, and want to own it!

Agreed; I like it better with the text. Keep the font, though, please... it's great.

GMV, and you are still my hero.

Also, wallpaper request, please, if you have the time and patience.

Is it weird that it bugs me that there is nothing inside their mouths? The beaks look sort of like spikes coming out of their faces- Either way though, cute design and idea

Thanks! I found it ^.^

Anyway, I just wanted to say again that I really love this shirt... and if you print it (I hope with the text!) I really want to buy it.

I find myself wanting to follow Hector on his adventures. Would be a lovely Children's book series.

Gosh, I really want this... :D

Re: The Bad Egg

I really like this one Boots. I agree with MJ though about Hector needing to stand out more. It's still enjoyable though. As usual, wonderful color scheme.

I thought that was a little strange too at first, but then I liked it, because that's her style. It makes them different and not boring.

Along with the Mickey Mouse one, my pick of the Derby. Really hoping this one gets into Double Take for a second shot.

Re: The Bad Egg


I just wanted to add my opinion about what you should change about this shirt: nothing. I love the freaky style of the pointy beaks and I also love the subtlety of Hector's position within the shirt. As far as I'm concerned, he shouldn't stand out...it's not his style. ;o]

Re: The Bad Egg


Love this shirt and voted for it but confused by one thing... the bird to the right of Hector looks like he has a beak coming out of his butt... am I looking at it wrong? Where's the eye?

The one above hector doesn't seem to have eyes either. I think that's perspective though.

Hector is teh awesome, boots. I really like the texture on the eggs too.

This is so awesome! I love the eyes! GMV!

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

This is awesome. It's the first shirt that made me laugh in a long time. There are others that make me smile... but not actually laugh.

Re: The Bad Egg


This is great. I would look like death in cream, but I would buy and wear this anyway. That is saying a lot.

I almost always like your submissions because of their quirkiness and whimsy and this design is right up there with your optimism submission in my book. I only wish more wooters enjoyed the same sort of designs.

Seriously Boots, I don't know how you manage to create my favorite designs in EVERY derby!!!
And now my husband has started voting for your shirts, partly because he likes them, but also because your my "best friend" ahuhuhu!

I'm picky, I just don't always express it

This illustration just radiates awesomeness! I have been using your "Cheer Up" wallpaper for the last few weeks, and was muy happy...and now it has been replaced because I love this one even more! I definitely voted and will snag it if it becomes a shirt, but I think it may be even more awesome as my wallpaper! You're still my new hero!

Someday your husband's vote is going to get me printed. I just know it! (thanks for forcing your husband to throw me an extra vote, Mary. BFF Power!)

Still laughing. I can see this on my co-workers the first day out... It is far enough back to not win, would you find a way to print it anyway so that I can have one?
