I hope everyone revotes. I had this picked out for my daughter's birthday on Nov 5. It came along with perfect timing.

Of the pop culture ones that have been axed, I think your previous design was probably the best. But the tiny little fix is no different than ramy's in my opinion. I don't see how this is any less rejectable.

Woot may let it pass but with how strict they've been (finally), I doubt it. And from a design level I think you've really detracted from the piece by allowing a few too many cooks into the process.

I'm aware that I'm just one more voice but the design is much too small and if it did print woot makes the women's designs much smaller as well. I also think removing the word bubble was probably a mistake. It gave the shirt some character and added to the joke. In it's absence I doubt anyone would look close enough to see the map is upside-down.

Sometimes it's good to listen to critiques, but I think in this case you should have stuck with your intuition.

A lost guy searching a map in Waldo, WI. A real place. How is that off topic? Adding the name of the city on the map it is pretty clear he's lost (and the map is upside-down). You are just one voice, many asked for the speech bubble to be removed. I liked the speech bubble and wasn't planning a resub but I think the tie in with the city name is pretty funny as well.

P.S. This classic character is ALWAYS small... The design was a little large on the first *rejected* shirt but you can never please everyone.

Thanks for the comments and feedback.

Clever way to get this design back in. I was sorry to see the original rejected. I know that they had to to be fair to everyone, but I thought this shirt was terribly clever.

I didn't see the previous one but I like this one. One of the first things I noticed was the upside down map. Very cool design. Waldo is perfect for a map themed derby. Now I just wonder if Carmen is around. Definitely got my vote.
