Re: The Great Green Meat Machine


I do like green eggs and ham I do I do Like them Sam I am!

But Do they come from a Can
Do they Come From far Siam?
Do they grow on a tree?
Can I get some more for free?

No No No! said Sam I Am,
They do not come from Siam
They do not come from a Can
They do not grow on on a tree
You cannot get any more for free!

These tasty meats that are so keen
They come from The Great Green Meat Machine!

We've shown you several examples in the pre-derby thread, but you chose not to listen.
Every single Dr. Seuss submitted shirt has been rejected with something along the lines of "not in public domain".

But the three examples I found that you pointed out, have what seem to be imitations of characters. This one seems less clear cut. Though it is in the style of Dr. Seuss, it has no characters in it. This seems significant to me.

If indeed it does get rejected, I can understand the reasoning. However, can someone please explain why this one will be rejected, while this shirts like this one was fine. What is the line?

Sure. He's gonna try and see what happens. If it's not rejected, then good for him. But if it is rejected, then there really isn't any reason to cry foul though.
Instead of constantly trying to skirt rules, it might be better to simply come up with something more original and with your own style instead of borrowing a style.

for starters, that was a daily. They are different.

For second, that one should probably never have printed.

I agree with your first point... the entire reason I went ahead with the design was because

1.) there are no characters involved with the design.
2.) I hand drew the scene
3.) I want to see where woot stands...

as for your second point sTyLeS... please stop riding my back, you've been on me for 2 weeks now and dang I'm getting tired... Shirts like this exist, and they sell, and they get votes, whether you like it or not... That's the sad truth.

I agree that in the past (including last week) I've been a whiny baby when it comes to rejection and pointed fingers at everyone but myself, and now that I've come to terms with that please let me be.

In the meantime I will probably continue to skirt the line due to the type of content I like to draw and the Ideas that my head comes up with. And in return I'm sure I will continue to get rejected from time to time... I'm just trying to determine where exactly that line lies... One thing I have to say is that MOST of the time I try to at least stay original with my parody shirts, so please stop riding me and let me enjoy designing,

I dont jump on you for copying Chik-N-Fila...

Well, I'm certainly not going to argue at all over the differences...if that's what you wanted me to do. So, it is what it is.

really like your design... hoping it's not over the line

@Styles... stop being a hypocrite man... your design lacks originality.

You can have your opinion and say what you want. That's fine. But Chick-fil-a is not a style of drawing. Seuss on the other hand...

Not saying this won't get rejected, but this shirt not only did not get rejected, but also got printed-- http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=31700

I wasn't familiar with that shirt, but if I had been around way back then when that derby happened I probably would have made the same comments in Boots' thread as well. And I'm sure it still would have printed.
You know my comments mean nothing to woot as a whole...they're just my opinions.
That's pretty much the point of opening up the derbies in a forum type setting. Everyone can say what they want (within reason).
I'd think if people weren't able to handle any comments at all that they would just submit for the Daily instead of the Derby.

this i great! So what if its a copied style? Its called being influenced. Artist grow and develop by starting a copied style. So, everyone stop being a-holes. Its an awesome design and thats what matters. Woot will do the rest. Now, go troll on youtube or somewhere else.

T-shirt art is not about having your own style, it's about making a point. My assumption is that you were trying to say something about Dr. Suess's work which is a common experience for most American children.

The style is completely legitimate for t-shirt art. The reason stuff gets rejected is because Woot has to worry about getting legal challenges which selling a few t-shirts won't pay to defend themselves on, so they just reject anything that they think might give them that problem, no matter how legal it might actually be.

This appears to be within the legal side of things IMHO. Nice demonstration of the Seuss style

You realize if you come up with original ideas you wont have to worry about being constantly rejected right?

Stop complaining and just vote if you like it.

BTW there's a "Seuss" shirt on Threadless right now.

Re: The Great Green Meat Machine


NOOOOOOOO!!! - I so wanted this t-shirt. I do not get the rejection process at woot.... some characters/movies/shows are ok to parody, and some aren't. It seems very random (or maybe related to the lunar cycle - I haven't checked that out yet). But bummed about this one

I agree w/ Annabananaka7!!
...I love this one, it had my vote until it was rejected, Graffd02 Keep on creating your shirts as they are...you'll find a happy median w/ Woot, AND (as Annabananaka7 stats: "grow and develop" your style)

ghoulish, this was the only shirt that made it into the fog that I actually would have purchased. No derby shirts for me this week.

It's truly aggravating that people put "YOU LOST MY PURCHASE!" as if that's some kind of a valid response to proper rule enforcement.
