This is awesome. I always feel bad for deleting a character piece. It just stares back at me with sad eyes... XD

It's funny, I didn't have that in mind when I designed this - but it is a similar idea. My stick figures are a little more substantial, though. ;^)

This is GREAT! I've spent the last thirty minutes trying to figure out how to vote for it. DONE!

Your effort has been rewarded by getting a dozen gold stars next to your name in my Book Of Awesome. I really appreciate it. The Book Of Awesome has hundreds of pages left to be filled, people! Keep voting!

(And to the two other people that voted for my other design, could you please just shift them to this one? I need to consolidate my votes. Thanks.)

:^)

Uhm.....I love the design but I REALLY hope that it's not a gradient behind the selection box. That could get it disqualified just as it's doing well.

Gargrazz - I always love your entries! This is fantastic. Another great blend of off-beat humor and artistic appeal. Great job!

I think it's only a matter of time for Garg before he gets a printing.

I normally don't love when you use the sketchy guys (you seem to have two styles as far as that goes), but this is really unabashedly clever. I am rooting for it

Gargazz hasn't had a shirt printed? That surprises me!

edit: edit: WOw! I just went to shirtderbystats. You're right Adder. No Gargrazz win, but lots of close ones:

So Close: Consumerism

Topten: Patterns

Guess it's time to create a "Vote for Gargrazz" clique too.

I think it'll happen naturally given time. Edgar has a very "controversial" style, and I think those of us who appreciate him realize he's at a disadvantage for it. Gargrazz, however, has a good blend of cleverness, skill, and marketability. Edgar is an underdog... Gargrazz is a sleeper.

Gradients are so 4 steps back in the histogram. All the cool kids are using single color halftones.

The sketchy guys are a stopgap until my tablet finally shows up and I learn how to use illustrator. I got a tablet for Christmas, but it was PC only. I had to exchange it for a mac-compatible tablet. That should be on its way. In a few derbies my style should expand.

Not to say I won't use the sketchy style any more - but it'll be for more specific purposes. I'm using it too much right now. But it's pretty easy to do quickly, so is handy for those early Friday submissions.

Thanks for everyone's support. I have come close in the past. I'm ready to win one - but I want it to be for a design people generally like. I'm a big fan of Edgar's stuff and it would be nice to see either one of us get some top 3 love.

I like being a sleeper. I'm the Jack Cust of the Woot derby. Eternally AAAA, up and down in the top 10, never quite making the bigs, maybe one breakout season some day after I dabble in performance enhancing drugs. Poor Jack Cust. Poor Gargrazz. :^)

looks awesome, but if there were no transparency checkers in the background, it would be bar-wearable and street worthy.

i think the "save-don't save box" is enough, the checkers in the background sort of ruin it as shirt worthy for me.

voted!

just a lil man that loves to draw and look at people's drawings...

Interesting. I thought about making the checkers just barely different in color from the shirt BG. In the end, I figured what's the point? I'm doing checkers or I'm not. :^)

Thanks, but do you mean around Woot or the interwebs in general? I'm still trying to figure out MySpace. What's up with that? I am to understand you visit other people's Geo-cities style "webpage" and then throw... er, fruit at them?

Slip-sliding away... if this design was a presidential candidate, it would be raiding the supply closet at the delegation HQ for office supplies right now.
