Re: Peregrination



NOTICE: This has been resubmitted with corrected art. Please vote for my new shirt HERE!







When I was a kid, my family picked up and moved from New York to New Jersey. I had to leave all my friends behind and start a new life. It was a journey in more than just the physical sense. I had to leave the gentle, protected world of my youth and enter a place both strange and unfamiliar. It took many years, but I survived and grew. I coped with my losses and built up new gains. Eventually I even returned to New York, where I feel at home once again.

The American peregrine falcon used to be seen all over the eastern United States. About forty years ago, though, they nearly became extinct because of pesticides like DDT. They were nearly gone forever because of adversity... less than 100 of them were to be found in all of North America. But because of conservation efforts and a breeding project organized at Cornell University, the falcons have returned. Today peregrines are known to exist in the thousands, and some peregrines thrive where you might least expect them... New York City.

They nest on bridges, skyscrapers and other structures similar to the cliffs where peregrines normally reside. New York has become a haven for the peregrine, a home they have returned to after much adversity. Ever since I heard their story I have always kept an eye out for my spiritual bird siblings. They spin and swoop, bank and dive in the air... truly poetry in motion. Even their name comes from a Latin word related to movement from one place to another. I could not help but think of them when I heard this derby’s topic.

For more information about peregrines in New York, click here.

From Encarta’s dictionary:

peregrination: ( pèrrəgri náysh'n ) (n) a journey or voyage

Thanks for your vote!

This dog's on the move....beachbound in a hurry. Ears, towel and tail flowing in the wind and the wheels in rapid motion. This dog wants to get to the beach quickly!

Re: The Force diagram



Rest assured, that block is in motion. I should also mention that wearing this gives you both +5 nerdiness and +5 geekdom, so make sure that works with your character class and party.

Re: Speed Graph



Hopefully the graph looks like motion enough to convey that they are moving and that they are also a graph...

Remember days out in the yard with this plastic sheet with water on it? Remember how you slid into the mess at the end? It seems she went a little far on this run! (Complete with aquasox L O L)

Re: The Occasional Stretch



The Occasional Stretch

Up for voting!

This design is about giving motion to an object that never moves. It’s also a motion (stretching and yawning) that comments on the fact that statue is in one place all of the time and would likely be bored. There’s no contrails or repeating images, but the entire design revolves around the statue in mid-motion.

Re: The Cow Jumps Over The Moon...



Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such fun,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Just a heads up, but they frequently do not like resubs from another derby without noticable changes... it does work for the motion thing though! I enjoyed your side-by-side comparison in your signature too. :-D

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!
...a number of shirts on teetrade.com

So is the green in the rainbow just the shirt showing through? Because if it's not, I see more than 6 colors.

Re: Thriller Dance



Rehashed my previous design, changed placement slightly, and changed the color. Take it for what it is

Re: Pinwheel


A spinning pinwheel. I don't think this requires any more explanation. ^_^

EDIT: Except maybe that there's no gradients here. Four colors on a grass shirt.

Re: Bullets Move Really Fast



Bullets move when shot from guns...or you could just throw them.
but this design portrays a bullet flying from a guns barrel.
The bullets trail leaves swirling PRETTY COLORS.
Just like in real life.
