Yes, it should say, "Le fromage est français pour awesome". I think it's a great idea, but if the "le" was in the wrong spot, I wouldn't vote for it/buy it. I'd also want to see the correct ç.

I think this might be the first derby I enter. Been a lurker up until now.

So, I know that cream is not a favorite around here, so what do people think of this image on silver?



The image gets lost on silver, definitely looks better on creme. I actually liked the "outside the lines" coloring style of your rough draft incidentally, but this looks good, too.

Those may have been the fogged entries/winners, but I for one am glad for the current exclusions. We've seen a ton of Star Wars, Dr. Who, and Mario entries in the past several weeks (when rules didn't prevent them).

As much as I love cats, I do think we need a "no cats" derby soon for some balance.

If DERBY cats were a problem, I'd agree. I'm not capping DERBY cats because WOOT desided to do a Side sale cat. Next week when the derby comes around, there won't be nearly so many cats.

I do agree though that we're about at Saturation Point for Whovians and sith-JE-dis. Marios, now I could do with a good Mario Design, but I don't need 1000 Mushroom shirts and 200 Yoshi eats an 'X' shirts.

Hey yall! Its been a while since i've been posting images, but since I had this idea a couple weeks ago, and it fit the theme, i figured I'd toss my hat in the ring and watch it sink like a stone

So Im having more fun drawing number 1, rather than 3, so I've decided to go with that.

This is looking like my final version now, better and more tidily drawn with a slightly different style of art.

What do you think?

Although I completely agree that there's way too many Dr. Who shirts out there... I would've totally loved a fish fingers and custard shirt. haha!

I agree with your comment about the silver - it got washed out or something. SO I went with cream. I also think that there was something kind of charming about the outside the lines as well, but in the end I decided to make it cleaner. We will see whether I made the right choice I guess :P

On topic-ness seems questionable for many entries this week.

Sigh. I really hope I actually have time to finish this week's submission.

IMHO, I like the no mario, no star wars, and no dr. who rules. Why? Well, the derbies get dominated with what feels like a million entries with these 3 topics. There are some pretty amazing artists on this site that I would like to see something other than those. With excluding those topics, it will allow the artists to explore other options for the derby, which I think is great.

Ummm. That artist are ALWAYS free to explore other options. Many choose not to because they want to cash in on the recognition factor of popular themes.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

QFT. I don't think restrictions 'allow' artists to take other paths, it forces them down them, willing or no.

I also think the recognition factor runs both ways. With the exception of the blanket Text or blanket pop culture Ban I don't think there's ever been a 'banned item' that accounted for more than 5% of ANY derby EVER.

You have to remember too, Shirt.Woot isn't running the Derbies out of the generosity of thier hearts.. they have a business to run, and are counting on 3 shirts a week (weekend shirts at that) to come from the derby. Not everyone purchasing the shirt cares about the derby or voting in it, and if they have a run of one meme over and over again, they are going to lose customer base.

Woot needs to keep it fresh!

By which you mean they're running the Star Wars, Doctor Who and Monty Python shirts as Dailies.
