This design is awesome. It's exactly what I hoped this derby would produce: a shirt that subtly mocks high modernism that I can wear to school.

Your thumbnail absolutely fails to do this proper justice. GMV, nonetheless.

I love the stars on black, great to see your parrot shirt on sale at GoodJoe, I've been hankering for that one for some time.

I really liked this one in the idea thread, and still do. It's a really cool take and something about this image is really memorable. +1!

Yeah, I didn't really know what to use as almost any close up wouldn't look like anything so I chose this. I hope people still look.

Definitely a good design - very clean and sharp and the colors have that 2001 movie feel. ^_^

Great work. I'm often impressed with your art. Still waiting for the evil railroad guy to print somewhere.

Fun concept and good execution of design. I can't help but think, however, how you missed an opportunity to make the helmet of the space suit accommodate a bird's beak. It could make the silhouette more pronounced, exaggerate the subject matter, and bring another bit of hilarity to the design.

Also, the amount of stars could lessen a bit more dramatically toward the edge of the design. Doesn't have to, but it might be something to play with out of curiosity.

Nice detail, though. I like the traction you've got goin' on the bird feet boots. Good luck!

Definitely thought about it, ultimately I decided it was funnier this way. Thanks for the comment.

I almost didn't look at this because the thumbnail is forgettable-- but I'm glad I looked anyway! I'd love to get this. Fog, fog now!

I said something in the pre-derby thread, but just in case... this is really well done. Very striking, nice work capedcrusader.

Yeah I think thumbnails are really important in derbies.. which I learned too late to resub for my own design, too, haha. Well, I watched you in the prederby thread and liked what I saw :^) plus your doing well despite the thumbnail comments so good job ^^

Ya know, I think I like the thumbnail more than the whole design (and I really like the design!). O_o

I guess I just uberly enjoy looking at your swanky linework, and the thumbnail boasts it best.

...That all was a compliment, by the way. I struggle with these things.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • If a train crashed into our garden, would we notice the noise? Would it make us sit up and turn off the TV?

Re: Bird in Space.


I absolutely love your entry. The only criticism I would offer is the boxy look the stars create at the edge of the template. I think reducing the size of the bird would allow the density of stars to lower nearing the edge of the template and lessen the box effect.

But, again, overall I love it and you definitely have my vote!
