As time passes, some things change and others stay the same.

Wow, those colors really sing.

Which is appropriate for a year in the life of a bird. :^)

I dig it but wonder why you started in spring instead of winter.

spring is the start of life, so I wanted to start the design with the first buds of the season and the first sign of birds in the trees. As it crosses into summer everything grows wildly, then the colors change, the birds fly away, and finally winter comes as everything comes to an end. Then the cycle restarts when life begins to emerge again. That was my thought process as I approached the design

I guess I'm just trained to have a Gregorian/James Taylor view of the chronological order of seasons. GMV anyway.

Re: Seasons


Looking quickly at the thumbnail, it simply looked like seasons separated by brown bar-ish things. Now that I looked at the complete design....Wow. "Four season" shirts (not to mention "4 seasons shown by trees") have been done over and over again (including your own "Transitions"), but I must say I really like the colors on this one, as well as the use of the trees as divisions. It's doubtful I'd actually want to buy this, but, at the very least, well done.

Re: Seasons


You submitted similar styles back in the day without much success, but this is new in that instead of 2 colored parts we have 4. It's not my cup of tea, but best of luck to ya.

Loving your use of negative space to add so many small details here. If anything, it reminds me a bit of 'Transitions', but with plenty more eye-catching elements.

Re: Seasons


I enjoy this. I wish that winter had a bit more blue and a bit less green so that it contrasted more with spring, but it really is lovely.

I love this website! ^^

This is more of the Sinatra "It Was a Very Good Year" progression of seasons.

My only problem with this shirt is that my first impression was of brightly colored fingernails.

But otherwise, gorgeous shirt.

Got my vote.

Re: Seasons


I like the colors, but I don't like the concept or design (boring). A couple of the other 'season' themed designs/concepts are better (especially the pizza one).

Re: Seasons


I love that you can do two different styles every week and have one of them almost always end up in the Fog! Would you mind checking out my design and giving me a few pointers? This is definitely a winner this week!

That reminded me of this scene from The Secret of Kells (yep, that surprise Oscar nominee from last year).

I don't comment on here ever, but after this derby I am compelled to.
The fact that this design beat http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=54831
is disappointing beyond words.
That compounded with the fact that the other Ramyb design of cutesy death (and cute zombie animals ((which I am failing to see the "Four" in..)) ) is also in the fog puts me on the cusp of losing any faith in shirtwoot that I had left.

I hope that another user voting site shows up soon where the overarching preference is not for cutesy animal designs.

Nothing against Ramyb, he clearly is very good with animals, and obviously knows his shirt.woot demographic.
