A match made in the stars... ok enough with the cheese. Great team up. Forbidden Planet is one of my FAVS and so is Futurama.

And it's a great illustration. Maybe you guys can do prints too... I'd be down for that.

How is a design based on a contemporary cartoon on theme?

Looks great, but this just doesn't mesh with the theme. As always though, the rejectionator won't be worried about silly things like theme.

My friend was wondering about that too but I believe this picture is parodying The Creature From the Black Lagoon poster(1954). So I think that'd make it on topic.

Close! As Grrrlmarvel pointed out, it's Forbidden Planet.

Re: Forbidden Future


But where is the Futurama parody? As of right now I just see two copyrighted characters (from a litigious creator) drawn in a different style.

Woot's rolling the dice if it allows this one, and would make me wonder why they ever make rules with threats.

While I typically cringe at the "mashups" on the other T sites, this is inspired!
And Forbidden planet is 100% on theme, paranoid androids!
I weep for the future of this entry.

I love love love Robbie-Kasey collabs, but honestly I'd like this alot better without the Futurama reference. And it's not that I don't like Futurama either, because I do.

Actually, the characters look quite a bit different from the official Futurama designs, so it should be fine. The characters you see on the shirt are inspired by the real ones, but their looks are very different.

Copyright comes into play when you use the real designs themselves, or do not make significant changes to the designs. The robot and woman are in a completely different style from the cartoon. It actually took me a moment to figure out the reference. At first I was like "Whuu, the girl looks like she only has one eye! Wait a second....I see what you did there..." :P

To me, this is a very good example of parody. I could be wrong, but I see nothing at all that would mark this for rejection. TGentry did a great Family Guy reference sometime back that was a good parody. The character reference was recognizable, but it wasn't the exact character.

Re: Forbidden Future


Clever and well done! Though, I think it's kinda "cheating" to put modern pop culture references in designs for this derby. Of course, if woot agreed, they'd have a "no pop culture" rule...so I guess it's fine. Regardless, I'd buy it, even with my aversion to pop culture shirts.

I hope you're right. I instantly saw "Bender", took me a longer on "Leela". Tgentry's griffin was far less recognizable.

Also....Robby the robot....how appropriate.

Re: Forbidden Future


It would be an absolute shame if this shirt doesn't print. There is a lot of great art coming out on this derby, as usual and I'm haven't ever really felt compelled to comment before BUT no one has been more dead on theme and as creative as this. Win or not this is hands down the best shirt design I have seen on this site yet. If every derby had entries that captured the themes as well as this I would be buying shirts far more often.

I must buy this!!! So glad it fogged. Not only is it great artwork, but there is a story to go along with it. Obviously, the Planet Express spaceship crashed and Leela got knocked unconscious. Bender is saving her from the ship, thus creating that iconic pose. Brilliant!

Bilyum it up all day long!

There is no way that is possible, Bender would never save Leela. He's obviously kidnapping her to ransom back to Farnsworth. In fact, he probably sabotaged the ship in the first place!

The faces of the characters in that shirt look almost identical (albeit a little less cleanly rendered) to the real Simpsons characters. There is no mistaking who the characters are due to the design of them being so similar to the official images. In Robbie and Kasey's shirt above, the designs of the robot and woman are significantly different from the official Futurama characters. There is a reference and similarity, but they do not look exactly like the cartoon art like in the example you've linked to.

Re: Forbidden Future


I'm in awe of the detail. The first time I saw it I was like "that robot kind of looks like Bender" and thought it sort of took away from the monster movie style but as soon as I saw the one eye and realized that it was all on purpose, it made the design great! This is a perfect example of how to reference something without tempting the rejectionator!

Right on, Kasey- thanks for all the great comments, everyone!

And as soon as I had the idea, I knew the best design would be one in which I worked with Kasey. His knack for atmosphere and drawing women in that beautiful, classic style is amazing. Thanks, man!

Now I get to stay up to 1 a.m. for the next three nights to see if this prints...!

Re: Forbidden Future


My internal monologue looking at this design:

"Wow, what a perfect illustration for this derby.

Kinda nice to have something in the fog that is just straight up good illustration and not cheesy cuteness or some pop culture reference.

The robot kinda looks like Bender, but oh well.

Why does she have purple hai--Ohhhhhh."

I still think it's well done, and I love both Forbidden Planet and Futurama, but I think I would have preferred the shirt without the Futurama reference. Subtle enough that I still like it though.

I'm sad that I didn't check it out in time to vote.

I'm giving you two a voodoo magic + uno.

I'm hoping it works it's way into the talley and gives you an extra point.
