If you think it's "punny," then I guess your mommy never taught you that's its not nice to make pun of the handicapped (especially Blind Dogs).

No, seriously, I went back and sqinted real hard and tweeked my monitor.... You can barely see the purple, or whatever. Very low contrast.

I chose a darker purple because it is the Cheshire Cat.

Re: Cheshire


WOOT! How is this off topic? The Cheshire Cat is from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which is a fairy tale according to the source that you said you would visit first: Wikipedia.

I do know from other "rejects" that woot! is taking a VERY hard line on this derby: faerie tales, not fables (as in Aesop's Tortoise and the Hare), not legends (like Bigfoot and Robin Hood), not novels. They're sticking straight to faerie tales that have been collected from local culture, don't have an overtly stated morals, probably were put in a compendium by some insufferable academics turned heroes (I'm looking at you, Grimms!), and definitely not tales made up in the last couple centuries. They want tales with *history*, thank you!
At least, that's what I can figure (and, I'll admit, part of me agrees with that hard line). Sorry you got rejected. I'm sure the time'll come when you can use this. It's a really nice effect, the purple so close to black that it looks like the Cheshire Cat is disappearing into the shirt. I also lime the eyes, they're pretty darn captivating. Good luck next time!

Ramble over.

I get that, but their staffer said that they'd refer to wikipedia. Wikipedia lists this as a fairy tale. I'd just like some clarification.

As would I. I love this design, it would be an instant buy for me.

It seems as if all Alice in Wonderland shirts were rejected. Oh well. Thanks for the support anyway.
