Tesla was the Jimi Hendrix of his time.

Looks good on red, but CRANBERRY would be even better!

I'm this tee's designer - someone care to enlighten me about the issue with using a public domain photo in the creation of this design?

To be specific, to recreate the look of a psychedelic 60's gig poster I created a completely hand drawn repeating pattern (took 4 and a half hours alone)containing elements reflecting Tesla - A tesla tower, lightning bolts, transmission rays, etc - which I then merged using Linear Dodge (Add) on a slightly modified version of the photo (heavily compressed the tonal range using Levels, hand tweaked his hair, emphasised the moustace and chin and ear and changed his collar).

If all this goes against woot's rules, or *spirit*, then admins can happily remove my design from the derby, because I wouldn't want people getting all upset over my work.

Welcome!

There are "general rules" that are not published weekly, along with rules for the specific derby. Here is one url, I believe there are several:
http://shirt.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=1946963

Woot has a "no photo use" policy.
Also, under Plagiarism: If a shirt appears to be a direct trace of a picture found online without significant modification, then rejection is likely.

Good luck.

Thanks for the link, Tomspc. Shall bookmark it. It looks like I haven't broken any rules then

It's hit or miss. Lyonscc didn't get rejected for this traced Poe image:

I don't know how much solace I'd take in my non-rejection for that design. I sent in a question about it, and the use of photographs in general, and the response I got back was "no use of photographs, at all" (aside from scans/photos of your own drawings for conversion to AI/Photoshop.

The Poe design I had submitted late in the derby, and I don't think the rejectionator made any rounds after the issue was raised, so I wouldn't take its non-rejection as tacit approval.

EDIT: I recall one or two designs being rejected last year because clouds in the background were from Photoshop brushes that used photos in them, so they've been somewhat draconian in the past when it comes to photos.

Please tell me that you are reworking this, because I really want this shirt or one that is similar to it!

Thanks chrispen - definitely going to rework it, but not in time to resub for this derby unfortunately. Client deadlines must come first. Don't know where it will go, but if you join me at fb.com/vincent.carrozza you can find out when I do. And thanks, I appreciate your comment. Getting rejected was a bummer man.

I loved this shirt for my daughter who is a chemistry major. Couldn't wait to buy it even complained that they pulled yours and didn't reject fosters the friends which is from cartoon network so whats the deal. Hope to see it again.

Thanks bolis - really glad you liked, and I'm sorry it didn't work out too. It will definitely turn up somewhere eventually, even if just on redbubble because I really want one myself!
