Re: Wishful Thinking (Thoughtless Edition)


There was interest in seeing the original Wishful Thinking design without the thought bubble. It worked nicely as a bonus joke, but I understand conveying something in it's simplest form works well on shirts.
Feel free to vote as you please on either and thanks for all the helpful feedback.

I'm extremely torn because I was thinking this same thing, but now looking at it I think the other might look better on the shirt. The thought bubble aesthetically kind of rounds the design out and adds nice contrast. I also think it does actually add a little contrast and character to the design even though I thought it was unnecessary when I saw the first design.

Anyway, I like them both and wish you the best of luck on a print!

Thanks mwednesday. They both work for me. This one for the core joke, and the original because I find the muscle-rex quite funny as well. You could argue that the thought bubble is the punchline for another shirt where the t-rex is pumping iron or something. (Can I call dibs on my own idea so I can make a sequel?)
We are now in a situation where there are three audiences choosing designs; voters, editors and the guest judge. There was nothing lost in giving them another choice.

Don't worry, the bubble one will win the top votes.

I know. Not that I've posted it anywhere for proof, but I called to two winners so far with the new format. I'm sure a lot of other people including yourself have as well. It's been pretty easy I think partially because, for whatever reason, the voters are making really good decisions. My question is would woot print both if for example Drakxxx thought this one should print after the thought bubble had already taken Summer's Over!

edit:

I have no idea why I typed "the Drakxxx" he doesn't even go by that (unless he wants to).

Yeah, I think I called the last two derbies across the board, though I got the order wrong last week, and I still think it's because EC stole GE's choice and he had to pick again.
I think the easy pickin's for top spot is because the standouts have been rather obvious in the last two derbies.

I don't think so. This one is dangerously close to "T-Rex hates pushups"

I didn't see the version with the bubble, but I can't imagine it being anything other than tacky and pop quiz. This? This I love!

-edit- this in reference to Wishful Thinking http://shirt.woot.com/derby/entry/65265/wishful-thinking-thoughtless-edition

(and I've now seen the bubble-version. I was expecting words, so the bubble's not so bad, but this is still much better)
