Thanks James! I actually have 5 entries this week, but they all kind of faltered. I really liked the Basquiat one, but apparently only a handful of people agree with me.

There is no context to what shirt you are asking this about.

To that end, when are people going to get tired of generic puns and memes? Wootie woo for lame pun or meme entry 4217 in every single derby.

From the entry under my design, it would appear that he's talking about mine.
As I said in defense of Alvin's design, this type of design may not sit well with you, but there is obviously a voting contingent that likes this more contemporary style. If this was an art contest, I can understand why you would be upset with this sort of entry. But, this is a design contest and this sort of design is very popular for tshirts for a contemporary urban crowd.

In my defense, (check shirtderbystats.com), I have always offered a 100% hand-drawn entry in each of the derbies in which I have participated in addition to an abstract entry. Granted, my art ones have either been rejected for being off-topic, or failed to click with the voters, but I do attempt to show a range of styles each week in the hope that something appeals to the voting crowd.

Hey All- Thanks for the recent votes on this one! I appreciate it. I'd love to earn a top 10 spot and sticker from cwarrington this week, but I like everyone ahead of me, so unless there's a wave of rejections, I'm content with my position this week.

Good luck to all the contenders. Fable, I'd love to see your entry in the fog. Wish I could do more!

Beautiful job kls... I missed out on picking up the davinci shirt (crazy last minute work trip) but will definitely be on the look out for this one... GMV (x2 ;) ).

p.s. blocked at work now so you won't be seeing me around as much.

Hey Alex- I wondered where you were this week. I was sipping my Wintry Blend coffee and realized that I hadn't seen or heard from you this derby.

The DaVinci shirt was short-lived, but it was great fun! I ordered a couple of extra shirts for family members in Spain. (Let me know if you want one!)

Every time I check, you're always in the hotness! Good job

Also, Anthony's entry seems to be making its way into the fog, which is awesome! I like that one a lot too

your "sipping wintry blend coffee" made me think of it, did a quick search on youtube for international coffees and voila! there's a bunch of those ads on there...and they're all hilarious

The sad thing is I remember those commercials!!! They are hysterical Man, my grandmother was so fond of the international coffees. She had cupboards full of different flavors. I honestly don't remember the last time I had a cup of one of those powdery coffees.

A few derbies back, I mentioned the Trader Joe's Wintry Blend. Alex tried it. That's why I mentioned it. We have that connection. It's a fabulous whole bean coffee with actual green and red peppercorns and chunks of cinnamon. You grind it all up and have the most incredible tasting spicy coffee. If you're into that sort of thing!

Thanks for posting the commerical. Brought a smile!

Ah, another great contemporary design from KLS. While I can generally tell your designs, sometimes I which you'd stick say...your best two in your sig. :P

Anyhow, poopoo on those who say they're sick of these designs, I love them, and personally I'm more stick of ninjas than actually good designs...these contests need every good design they can get :P
