Love the design but would have preferred a black shirt to blend the background. Still GMV.

Bilyum it up all day long!

I really love this one. Wonderful juxtaposition of low tech with (sort of) high tech. I think the colors also work really well, together and on the shirt.

GMV as promised. And being on silver gives it more 'pop' than on a darker shirt.

Great submission, hope to see this printed! By far one of the best entries.

I'm glad this is not on a black shirt. I hate black shirts. Also, I don't think black would really work well for this shirt; even though it is in space. The blue background works perfect; black would be overpowering.

I also kinda liked the uncolored version, made the books look more spaceshippy.

Navy would seem the obvious choice since that's the actual background color, but silver it is. Still one of the best designs in this particular derby.

This reminds me of Boots' shirt from a year or so ago, the child reaching for the stars. I bought that one for my son, but he's outgrown it. This would be a good replacement. GMV

Love it, but would much prefer it on a navy shirt. WHEN it prints, maybe woot! will do us a solid and print it both ways?

GMV!

Totally - I really want this on navy. Not for any kids, though. For me! :D

Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun...

I really like this, but I think it looks too boxy on the silver shirt.

  • 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.
  • From the summer to the spring, from the mountain to the air, from Samaritan to sin, and it's waiting on the air.

Loved the sketch in the pre-derby thread but count me in with others who would have preferred it on navy. I agree with spanchenblow that design seems to boxy on the silver.

I did a couple of rough sketches in my sketchbook, then scanned this into PS. I then redrew on my wacom tablet.

I can't believe this didn't print and am even more shocked it didn't get an HM. I hope you decide to sub it somewhere else.

I adore this shirt - I had my credit card out and ready this weekend; couldn't believe it didn't print! But it did make the Honorable Mentions list after all, so I will be lined up to vote on the next double-take.

Re: Reading Rocket Ship


@ Leabbh - Thanks again! This and "red" were my first derbies in a while back to back, so I was more than thrilled for how high it finished. Would have loved to see it print, but seeing finish fourth gives me hope it stands a good chance eventually.

@ khamilyon - I was hoping too! There were some great entries for this theme and it does feel good to get the HM (because of the double take). Hopefully it will make it to print. Thanks!

Re: Reading Rocket Ship


This shirt is great! I woulld love to purchase some of these or get permission to use the design as a tee shirt for school. If anyone can help me to contact the artist of this design that would be awesome.
