This is a shirt I can stand behind, and a nice departure from your usual style. Good job

Maybe a slight smattering of color either on the jelly or make it look like jelly got on the schematics, I think that would sell it even better, then it would also be applied science.

Wow, I never thought a PBJ could look better than it already does. Great work!

Beautiful! Would compliment the "PB+J music factory" woot shirt I have quite well...


Also, I think this alone is good reason for having an architecture/engineering-styled derby, by the way.

I really like your style here, I feel like this is much more refined than your usual submissions. I just don't like how the whole thing is halftones... it looks very smooth and clean on a computer screen, but it's going to look a lot different printed...

This is fantastically done. Very, very nice work, I can only hope that this makes it's way to the top.

I agree. Can you add a "splash" (or, maybe, a "splat!") of color to this? Like purple over the grapes/jelly, and brown over the peanuts/pb? Seems like it would make the shirt "pop!" a bit more.

winner!! nice drawing and so glad you used grapes. I like strawberries but concord grape jelly & peanutbutter is heaven on earth. =P to all you haters.

This design reminds me of my CAD software, which being only an engineering student, is incredibly frustrating. Once I learn it I'd probably love it, but right now I don't think I can get behind it.

Cool shirt either way though.

I love the pencil style, especially on those grapes. +1

I'm curious. Was this hand drawn and scanned?

Liking this much and will vote! I suspect that one way or another, this will eventually print, simply because Woot likes to make cream shirts because everyone gets so mad about it :-)

for everyone saying there should be a blob of jelly on the shirt, you could always make it happen yourself. customize your shirt to a one-off as plenty of jams and jellies stain, especially grape (ftw!). =)

Happy Beer.

it's 100% done in PS. stoked you ask, though, as i struggle to get a good pencil look in PS.

You're kidding, rite? I may not be great at discerning these things, but I certainly thought some of your stuff (Sullen) was hand-done and scanned. Which is not a bad thing by any stretch.
By contrast, I can do a nice sketchy style on paper, but can't get it to translate to digital very well. I mess with Threshold, etc., but my lines still look weeny.

I like the shirt, but being an engineering student I can recognize that your drawings are seriously under dimensioned, which would cause quite a problem for anyone actually trying to build these sandwiches.

No. Yes.

seriously? that's what hung you up? you need to get out more.

using bread as a standard:
they make pb and j jars that size in relation to the bread.
there are even grapes that size in relation to the bread.
i've even seen knives that size.
the only thing a different size from everything else is the peanut, which can be drawn to a different scale.

and don't even start with a defense of "you can't have multiple scales or dimensions on a blueprint", because maybe you can't in college, but in the real world, people cut corners. trust me.

Happy Beer.

PB & J's... The greatest thing ever invented?

I think so.

Pb and honey is amazing too.(You have got to try it!)

But yes, pb and j is absolutely essential to the survival of the human race!

(If woot had a purple shirt (HInt HInt) it would solve the issue of the grape jelly...) If this were to win perhaps there might be cause to introduce a purple shirt option? I would predict a huge sell out....)

but then it wouldn't look like drafting paper?

a heather blue might work too for blueprints.

but i am all for introducing a frosty grape color into the options.

Re: x = pb j


I think the need for purple shirts around here is pretty dire.

Desperate times call for desperate measures!

Sacrifice the drafting paper look and give purple to the people!

Pur-ple!

Pur-ple!...

(of course since theres no purple, we'll just have to go with option one and slop grape jelly on ourselves)

But I don't think this would look better purple. The sketchy-ness sells it, along with pb&j being easily recognizable. If it were on purple it wouldn't show as sketchy, but as dark lines.

Like I said, I'm all for adding a frosty grape color, just not for this shirt. "Gonna make you lunch" would've looked good on a light purple shirt (although I love lemon too).

My fear is that if woot ever added purple, it would be a dark purple, restricting the inks that would be clearly visible, versus a frosty purple that would allow for a wider range of inks.

I know. It would have to be a lighter purple( which is fine by me.)
...and this design is fine, of course , just the way it is!)

I used to work as an artist in a tshirt shop and we had a certain supply of inventory...I picture woot as a huge place with a huge inventory of their most popular colors and they just keep that inventory stocked.
All of the pastel colors offered are easily worn by both men and women.
It still doesn't make it any better for people who want purple shirts, well, there is always the option of using purple as color in the designs.
(my daughter here wants me to ask for pink shirts too!)

  • 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.
  • So I'm taking a rainbow up to the 5th floor.

Crushed that this didn't make it. It's woot's fault that all my PB&J sandwiches will be lopsided and not aerodynamic.
