Agreed. Well, except for the wifey part.

Still, this is a great design. It gets my vote even if I won't wear it.

Re: Let go


I love seeing an artist take a simple, perhaps even common concept, and handle it in such a superb way that it feels fresh again. This looks note perfect radiomode. I can't point out a single line I'd change. And the color choice is BOLD!

We will buy SEVERAL.

(recently there was a design that each of my two daughters bought the 3 Max amount each, and I did the same. THIS will be one of those!!!)

Need an opinion though: I really do not think many adult men will feel secure enough to wear this design, but could I give it to my almost-4 year old, budding-prodigy nephew? Any thoughts?

**********
Its not about being secure enough. men don't wear butterflys period. Pretty soon, the statement secure enough will be applied to dresses. Um he's not secure enough to wear a dress.

Not sure how this will affect the male vote, though. I'll buy one for my sister if it wins.

Nice idea, nicely done and I really like the flourishes at the end... my one hesitation is the colors are a little weird... not a fan of the hot pink... just doesn't look right to me.

On colors - isn't the shirt color depicted a deeper and slightly brighter yellow than the actual woot yellow? It looks that way when I compare it to the templates woot provided.

Besides the colors though - really nice!

Don't all 4-yr olds like butterflies, too? I could be wrong about that one.

You might be pleasantly surprised. My first yellow shirt was Buffalo Sunset, and I was apprehensive at first...but when I got the shirt, I loved it. None of the shirt templates do the yellow color justice, it's much prettier in person. I'm pale white, redheaded, and freckled...and I think the yellow looks great on me.

Could you tell me what color t-shirt this is? The color on my screen looks like AA's "sunshine," but I don't remember seeing a woot sunshine shirt before - didn't think they used that. Is it lemon?
I'm trying to decide if I could possibly pull this shade of yellow off. The closer to gold, the better! ^_^

I'm pretty sure it's lemon, as that's the only yellow-hued shirt they've used thus far.

As for the design, very well done! I'm a guy, I like wearing yellow, but unfortunately, I don't think I can pull this off. The use of color is great, and it really conveys a sense of action and breaking free of the confines of the bars.. just so simple and excellent.

Great work, Radiomode.

One thing I really worry about, though, RM -- is your use of a gradient in your mockup's background (light-to-dark yellow), which is forbidden.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was rejected and you had to resubmit! I would email Woot staff and see if you need to re-submit ASAP to ensure you get as many votes as you deserve!

Re: Let go


The blue really throws it off. I think it would look so much better with more shades/tints of the same color. Moving through progressively lighter reds from black. Then maybe accenting/detailing with a different color, like blue, had you leftover colors. But I don't like the transition of colors.

Re: Let go


I'm simply delightful and I don't think I could wear this shirt either. You can have maybe 2 of the 3 - butterflies, sharp pink or this yellow shirt - but 3 for 3 and, well, you know... I agree with PopeYmir. Black to red alone would make this more "guy-friendly." It's that violent pink with butterflies that screams for most guys, "Oh my God, it was so dark when I left, I put on whats her name's tee instead of mine; what will my buds...what will the taxidriver say...the doorman...what will everyone say!?!?!?"

As for this shirt looking good on the model, I'm sure he looks good no matter what shirt he's in and even better out of it. That doesn't mean he'd wear it.

Afterall, Radiomode doesn't just want to win, place or show; I'm sure he wants to sell as many shirts as possible at $2 a pop. Appealing to woman AND men facilitates those big sales that make a Woot shirt not only an artistic win but a financial success. That's why what males think does matter here. Hence, the forgoing constructive criticism.

That said, I only press the I'd Want One button if I'd really WANT one. So while I applaud Radiomode's fantastic design here and think it is eye-catching and special, I can't vote for it if I'm not willing to put my money where my mouth is. If I'm afraid that I'll be asked why I'm shopping in Macy's Juniors department (queens can be vicious you know), I can fully understand why any other male would be hesitent to wear this stunning, but particularly girly, shirt. Gettng rid of that shocking pink alone would go A LONG way.

I love this shirt so much. But really, it is more of a women's shirt. But whats wrong with that? Not everything has to be uni-sex. Men could buy these for their wives/girlfriends/children and that would be just fine too

Anyways, I'm crossing my fingers like crazy that this gets through! I want it so bad.

Re: Let go


Very cool design, but yellow shirt is not happening for me especially with the pink. I think I could handle one or the other, but not necessarily both. Nothing personal, just preference wise. And I have worn a pink shirt before, but when my wife says it's too girly, I know that I can say it too. You know, without getting accused of being sexist or homophobic, or any other ridiculousness like that. Good luck though. For some reason, I get a threadless vibe from it. It seems like it's something you'd see over there.

Excellent shirt. GMV. And let it be known that Chopin is my homeboy.

I'm a happily married man and I WILL BUY this shirt if it prints(GMV of course). Just cause it's got a little pink doesn't make it a girly shirt if you ask me. Some of the most confident and successful men in the world wear a lot more pink than that. Anyone asks why you got pink, tell them you don't question your own masculinity. Or do you? ^_^

I'm pretty sure they only reject if the gradient is in the thumbnail, because that would be misleading people into thinking the gradient is on the shirt (and of course, if there's a fine gradient in the design itself).

But using gradients to jazz up the comp? Lots of artists do it & get away with it.

I think the yellow adds alot to this design. There are way too many subdued colored shirts. Enough blacks and greys! Life is more than those two colors. And yellow looks good on a guy or a girl, imo.

I just want to add a general statement - criticism and insult are not mutually exclusive. As artists we have to listen to our audience. RadioMode it would be wise to take in the emotional reactions people are having to the colors you selected, instead of being offended. Color selection is critical and you have selected a very "pretty, bright" color pallete...not to mention you used butterflies which in most societies have a strong female association. Personally, I am female, and while I like feminine designs, I really don't like the bright colors and yellow tee shirt. A few subtle tweeks to the color scheme and perhaps a different color tee and this design could have reached new levels of sophistication...and perhaps could it have been a unisex shirt. I really don't think anyone is trying to tear you down here, your design is well executed and obviously people are voting FOR you. Listening to your voting audience will only improve your future performance.

Up to this point I have not written a single reply to the comments about the t-shirt color.

I have no idea from which you draw the conclusion of me being offended. Please dont put word in my mouth.

I appreciate all ppl comments about the t-shirt color! Everyone has their own favorite color(s). I personally like bright colors (or in general, everything that has colors). I also found that if you check the reckoning chart, the longest running t-shirts are all in colors.

The other 3 t-shirts in the fog right now are all in black, navy, or asphlat. I think those are the safest options. But this one is different, and I believe that fact alone should be exciting.

I'm glad to see a shirt with bold color choices doing well. :D I think that bright colors work very well on lemon; the only lemon shirt I have is bright red/gold on lemon, but it looks great.

Not sure if you intended this, but the lemon is also great for having the CMYK color scheme.

And of course the design is awesome. :D Good luck!

hey man,

I love the design. Ignore the people with sticks up their asses, the people who are retardedly stuck up, and yet even others who are too insecure to wear a yellow shirt with a bit of pink on it. I am fricken buying this shirt the second it goes on sale.

Y'know...
Since we're all assuming our own opinions reflect the community on Woot's opinions, I'm gonna give this a go.

There are tons of woot shirts on black, white, and asphalt, colors that I don't particularly like for tshirts. White gets too dirty and reminds me of going to funerals, asphalt is just boring and as for black *hurl*, I just plain don't like that color unless the design is really working it. I'm glad that the woot-off is getting a splash of color for once. If you don't like the yellow, don't vote, its that simple. Really.

Just because you like apple pie doesn't mean you shouldn't have blueberry pie. Sure, apple pie may be your favorite, but blueberry pie is dang delicious.

I'm glad that the woot-off is getting a splash of color for once. If you don't like the yellow, don't vote, its that simple. Really.

Just because you like apple pie doesn't mean you shouldn't have blueberry pie. Sure, apple pie may be your favorite, but blueberry pie is dang delicious.


Aaaand of course I forget to add the most important thing... D'uh! I love this shirt, and it totally has my vote. Great choice in colors Radio!! It's springtime! :D

MOAR PURPLE SHIRTS!!!

re: let go


Here's a hint, lads: we ladies LOVE a secure man.

If yellow looks good on you, wear yellow. If you like bright colors, wear them. Anyone who makes a stupid assumption based on the color of your shirt isn't worth your time anyway.

And, maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like brain-bashingly masculine shirts don't get the insinuations that they aren't worthy of woot like the borderline feminine ones do. If a feminine shirt alienates half the population, a masculine one does the same. Are women supposed to branch out and wear the bloody, gory, buggy, skully monstrosities we see around here, yet no dudes can man up to yellow?

/end gender rant.

consider the printed derby shirts.
while there are a few masculine shirts on woot, they are a huge minority.

I'm going to have to disagree with that. Woot prints a lot of 'cute' derby shirts (which, to be honest, sell like they're gender neutral, so either a lot of dudes are buying them, or a lot of people with kids are buying them), but the dailies are more likely to be overtly masculine. If you take a look at the archive over at shirt.what (http://www.shirtwhat.com/archive_s.php), where you can actually see ALL shirts ever printed side-by-side, I think it's pretty clear that most of them are either straight up gender neutral or leaning toward masculine.

For an example of aforementioned brain-bashingly masculine tees, see the recent daily of hot undead chicks and centipedes.

A hash is not a sharp. As below:


Time for a unicode moment.

I have no idea what the need is for it not to be on the keyboard, but, Windows users, depending upon what app they're in, can usually use one of:

♭ alt-9837 alt-+266D
♮ alt-9838 alt-+266E
♯ alt-9839 alt-+266F

Where the numerals and + are on the numeric pad (which is a bit of a dance on a lappy). You can also use the + code followed by alt-X in WordPad and (i think) Word. Or (especially if you don't know the code) fire up Character Map and type "flat", "sharp", "natural", or various other keywords in the search box, click the button, and double-click the character to copy it. Or paste them into a text file for handy copying later (which is platform independent).

what does that mean? "sell like they're gender neutral"??? the demographic clearly has to be mostly female if cute shirts like those sell the most. and that brings up another point- almost all, if not all, of the unreckoned shirts are derby shirts, and cute. The derby shirts nearly always outsell the dailies, so even assuming you're right that they print more masculine dailies than derby shirts, the overall sales are leaning way over to the cute shirts. Frankly, I NEVER see adult guys wearing these 'cute' shirts. not a single time. 4 yr olds? sure. 10 yr olds? nearly never. make that never.

sold 770 shirts.

Disapproving narwhal? sold 1962.

cute outsells not-cute. but that's just picking two shirts, not at random, and not fair on my part. ;^) I really believe that to be the case, though.

I briefly looked at the archive (a beautiful thing it is). I don't really think that there are a majority of masculine vs. cute shirts on there, but there may be a sort of gender-neutral majority, or plurality. I think that overall, though, lots more selection targeted more at the women than at the men. It isn't really productive to go through and make an arbitrary decision that each shirt fits one category or another, and score them all, though, since then there'd be disagreement about whether the categorizing was correct.

My point: the comments are here to help you, even the critical ones. Why should we reserve our contrary opinions in a forum designated for discussion? We all have a vested interest in the tees that win the derby because we are also the bulk of the potential buyers. Since the purchase of the shirt is ultimately up to the individual...why is it that everyone who says anything other than "I love it" are painted as "too self-conscious, insecure, intolerant, overtly masculine, etc."? Isn't it a simple case of personal preference? When a person takes the time tell you why they don’t like your shirt I genuinely believe it is because they want to help you out.

Well I disagree with both of y'all. I didn't think the centipede shirt was masculine, and I DEFINITELY don't think cute shirts are feminine.

I don't know if there are more shirts for one gender than the other, but I DO know that people complain WAY MORE about the shirts perceived as feminine. Either men are whiners, or it's the fact that women simply have more clothing/style options, or some combo thereof.

Since we're all blathering on with stereotypes here, which gender is more prone to shopping for junk they don't need?

I don't think the bias has anything to do with cute v. non-cute or male v. female when it comes to sales. It has to do with interesting v. not interesting. And not interesting always wins.

If this shirt doesn't win, you NEED to put it up on Cafe Press or something so I can buy one because it's the most beautiful shirt ever. I love music, and ANYTHING to do with music notes, but so much of it is tacky. I want want want this shirt.

Cafe Press? Ew. I would recommend Cameesa or even trying it over at Threadless.

Cameesa would be a good bet for a print, though.

Well said! But actually, I'm not really sure if the real definition even matters. Adder decides how to define the words and all of us ignorant customers just have to deal with it.

But... there is a gradient in the thumbnail...

Maybe because some guys are secure enough in their masculinity that they don't have to wear shirts that range in color from dark grey to black.
