Re: The Sex Drugs


I agree that this one is pretty sweet! However, I'm confused. Is this supposed to be printed on the back of the shirt? It looks like you're using a back of the shirt comp from the way you can't see the color line. Just want to make sure cus this should def be a front print imo.

hi, it's definitely intended as a front print. the blank shirt just happened to be backwards.

Re: The Sex Drugs


i just realised i accidentally put the cymbal layer beneath the robot layer. that cymbal should actually be in front of his arm.
i know it's not really important but if i should be lucky enough to win hopefully i'd have the opportunity to correct that before printing.

I believe you would be correct. Most of the time the positions are opposite from what you have here.

Excellent drawing, though! I really like it and would get one for my Dad - he's a drummer.

Lol, it's still awesome. I think that if you wanted them to fix it you would have to resub it. I don't know though, they might do it for you. Honestly, I wouldn't have noticed unless you pointed it out.

I love the crisp lines you used on this one. I hope it makes it all the way to the fog.

I really like the illustration. The only thing holding me back from a vote is the name of the band. I'm not quite sure why, but it doesn't do it for me; it doesn't roll off the tongue quite right, at least for me.

I can't say enough good things about the illo, though--great job with that. Hope to see more of your stuff in future derbies

Personally I love the name of the band. The designer encapsulates the entire history of rock and roll music in two words, plus goes one better and adds robots and jet planes.

Unfortunately, I noticed the cymbal placement issue right off the bat hahaha. I can't really vote for it because of that alone. I'm naturally meticulous when it comes to things involving musical instruments.

I think you have so few votes, that if you re-subbed it, you would be just as likely to win. Better to do it now than later!

I understand if you want to leave it as is, though.

Just know that Woot isn't gonna let you change it after the voting ends. Because it's already been voted for and everything, changing it in any way afterwards could be considered a bait-n-switch :P

That's a small enough change that I think Woot would certainly allow it. Remember when Seki reordered her animals in her Amazing Race shirt? That was a bigger change than this one. Also, such a small change wouldn't turn off any of the people that voted for it.

I suggest you just post a revised comp in your first post in this thread to retain the votes of the nitpicky folk.

Yeah, it's hard to explain. I like the _concept_ of the name and the idea behind it; I just don't like how it sounds when I say it out loud.

*shrugs*

Like I said, it was just me personally. I'm sure if someone as kickass at design as you disagrees, then plenty of people will like the name

The band name reminds me of a song that my friends listen to a lot. Had to look it up, but I think this is it. Note - potentially NSFW due to language.

that song was pretty cool, thanks for the link. sounds nice and robotic.

just for the record i put an updated version with the layers corrected on flickr.
it's really pretty trivial so if woot chose to print the current version i wouldn't be too sad.

I just don't like the name with the illustration... which is awesome... I mean I love sex and of course drugs are great on occasion... ;) but, I'm still wondering why there's a RED Rectangular background... It doesn't need it! Get rid of that and change the name to something like "Code Red" or "Red Rocket"... which both are probably taken... I got it... "HAL's Dysfunctional Other"

Awesome design. Should certainly be in the Top 3. And the cymbal really is a non-issue. It can be so easily rearanged if it's picked and I'll eat my hat if Joel has any problem with changing it up.

I'd have to agree. It's a minor change and I don't think anyone would actually be upset about the change since it really improves the design just by moving it forward (and most probably didn't notice it was behind before you said anything and they probably would never know that it hadn't been in front all along after a change).

The Sex Drugs obviously are a sex, drugs, and rock and roll outfit, and the robot was because i used to work with a band and the general consensus was that a drummer should be a mindless automaton with perfect timing.
plus i just like robots.
i made this one out of a tin can as a mild reference to Pop and andy warhols soup cans, and i gave him an antique microphone for a head because i liked the art deco shapes and musical relevance.

hoho... I didn't even notice that the robot's body was a tin can. And I thought the microphone was the filament of his light bulb head.

Might want to downplay the whole art inspiration thing. The voters here do not like anything complicated or artistic. I would tell them you were inspired by cute fuzzy pandas who love each other and do cute human things. You'll hit the fog for sure.

Yep, them's the rules. You have to have bought at least one item from one of woot's family of sites (woot, shirt, wine, or sellout) to vote in the derby.

You might not need your family voting, though, if you keep gaining steam like you are! I'm rooting for you. While I probably would resist purchase myself b/c of the name (see my earlier posts), you have a great illustration here, and the little artistic homages you put in are inspired. Good luck!

Can we get a confirmation on sellout.woot as a legitimate place to gain votage? I had this same conversation with someone else who said that they had purchased at sellout.woot and yet remained blank boxed and unable to vote.

for sum reason i like it better behind the bot! B^) im odd that way i guess.

i wish people would stop voting for the other top shirts so this one would get in there and print.. this is so much better than the dumb PB&J or pandering shirt, or the (only good skit on SNL in the past 15 years) cowbell shirt. the only one nice lookin in the top spots is the hippie shirt, but its just not my cup o tea.

The only thing that would make this idea bad is that people would still be making $1000 for shirts that no human, regardless of age, should wear. These bad shirts aren't bad because they're too kiddy. They are bad for all reasons.

Though I say "these" as a general blanket. I actually find the concept of PBJ pretty amusing since I know what the reference is.

who said anything about giving 1000 bucks for the shrits... they are for kids so how bout 100 bucks B^P and at least maybe we wouldnt see as much of tha cutesy crud any more.

also i too know what the pb&j is referencing to and i still find it not funny and well just boring compared to this or sum of the other shirts. to me it looks like a kids shirt.. like a 5 year olds shirt.

Sadly, I can’t believe that creepy Freudian “pi” shirt has more votes than this

Sadly, I don't think I'm hardcore enough to pull off a shirt that references sex AND drugs AND sex-drugs,ha ha. However, excellent work. This clearly took some talent;)

I really like this design. I just wish it was a little bit smaller as I don't like that much graphic on the front of the shirt, more of a personal preference though.

The design on this one is too large on the shirt, otherwise I'd like it a little more.

Hate to say it, but I think you have a point. I have to think the only thing holding this shirt down is the name of the band.

It's an excellent illustration, clearly a band shirt (not all of the shirts near the top fit this, believe it or not), great color choices, and he (apologies if I used the wrong pronoun) picked a good blank for the design to rest on.

Oh, and robots are cool

I'm surprised anyone would bad mouth this design. I think it is awesome and is easily my favorite one in the running. Great robot, great band name, great colors, just great. This is the only one of the shirts that are at the top that I'd buy.

If it shrinks a bit, I'd be in fo sho.

This is like the little shirt that could, man. I've been watching it creep all week, and I'm happy to see it finally found its way into the fog.

It's a well designed shirt that deserves a print.

I think the timing of the shirt has been the problem. If it entered the derby on Friday, it would probably be selling this week. I think we're all going to have to hope for a take-two derby or Editor's choice to be able to buy this one. What a shame!

I think this just needs a few more votes to knock that darn cowbell outta the top three.

Vote, people, VOTE!!!!

Re: The Sex Drugs


Yeah, this is definitely going to be a close finish. There's some serious last-minute voting going on here.

To the artist, a question. Is this your first entry? If it is, major congratulations! I agree with someone way up there in the comments who said they thought it was a tgentry... when I saw the thumbnail, that's what I thought. I also see that you've got many of the "big names" (as I think of them) commenting and complimenting your work. It even appears that AdderXYU doesn't hate you, and that's a pretty decent accomplishment!

Wishing you luck on a print this week, and even if you end up in 4th, that's a great accomplishment for your first derby (assuming, like I said, that this was your first) and I think you could easily get this printed on Cameesa if you don't end up with an HM.

Darn it... This is the one shirt (at least in the top 7) that I really wanted... I still don't see how the Cowbell got so many votes (no offense to the creator). That joke has been old for years now... :/

Yeah this is my first derby, and my nerves are totally shredded. I've barely done anything all week but refresh and check my position. It's been torture.

The Hotness remains populated for 3 hours after voting ends, since it shows votes in the last three hours. Voting automatically ends right at noon central.

Congratulations leonryan! I'm so glad the design has made it this far. I agree with the others who have mentioned the size. I think it would look better on the shirt if it were knocked down about 10 or 15 percent. I wonder if that's something woot would allow?

I've been refreshing all week too! I have only bought a couple shirts this last few weeks just because I needed a Woot fix. Now if this wins I can really look forward to getting my 3 in the mail. Fingers crossed still!

i just emailed joel and sent him a corrected file with the size slightly reduced, so fingers crossed if i'm lucky enough to get printed that'll be the version they use.

By corrected, do you mean with the cymbal moved to the front? I like it better in the back. He's a robot; it's not like he couldn't still hit it if he wanted to.

yeah i moved it in front of his hand where it was always intended. it was too big to be in the background and was always intended to be in front anyway. i just happened to drop it in the back by accident at the last minute. if enough people prefered it in back i'd be happy to leave it there, but that was never the plan.

Absolutely love the art and color scheme. Like some other have said though, the band name isn't so good. And it doesn't go with the artwork. I'd buy this if I could change the band name or take if off entirely. Nothing against sex and drugs here, it just doesn't make sense.

895 votes to 887... Holy freakin' apcray, dude. I had my eye on this since the beginning, and when the Pi shirt took 2nd place and it was between this and Cowbell, I honestly thought it was over by then.

Congratulations, sir. A close victory, but a victory nonetheless. Got mine ordered. =)
