Also, the sharktopus from the TV movie was shaped completely differently, just using the head of a Great White Shark on an octopus' body (which is different than this).

Also, this was meant to be paired with my other design, a dragon, which isn't exactly "pop culture". You might also look up the Lusca, a mythological sea monster that is a shark/octopus combination.



sorry but the first thing i thought of when i saw this design was sharktopus, and even after reading your first post and even this last one i still see sharktopus which is funny because i have never even seen the movie

I know what you mean. My closet is full of blue and black shirts. I think it would look nice w/ a navy option. I know the women in my office wanted to order this one too. A deep purple would contrast well with the yellow for the ladies too.

Re: Man o' War



I'd had an idea of combining a Man of War ship with Man o' War jellyfish floating in my head for a while. This derby gave me an excuse to render it in Da Vinci style.

Slightly bigger picture of it:

I hope it wins.
If it wins, I will buy two of these (one for myself and one for my daughter).

However, is this design--as it appears now--in danger of being Rejected for being outside of the standard print area? (I'm specifically thinking of the Illustrator template, in which the Print Box doesn't go nearly this far...)
Or is Woot allowing more wiggle-room?

I also have to say this: if one were to wear this shirt tucked in, would it look kind of odd? Having those two large pencils seemingly sticking up out of your pants like some giant marsupial member?



I tend to push the edges when it comes to the limits of the print area. I do this because I use a flat shirt mockup (as opposed to one that has a person in it) so things are going to look larger when you put them on and closer to what I'm showing you here. Woot has never freaked out about this.

As for tucking in t-shirts, I'm strongly opposed to that from a fashion standpoint. If you choose to do so, I can't be responsible for the consequences.

Navy could have been nice and purple would have been great. Unfortunately, purple is not a regularly-offered option.

Canary
Creme
Cranberry
Baby Blue
Grass
Silver
Brown - though that's almost as over-used as asphalt
It's not that it looks bad on asphalt, it's just that's the go-to color every time a design isn't color-dependent. I think it's a sad shame that artists always opt for neutral in those instances instead of taking advantage of the opportunity to do something more unique.
It's a great design, and I wish you luck with it, but I don't need any more asphalt tees, whereas I would give it serious consideration in almost any other color.

What is the connection to the renaissance theme? The Celtic symbolism!?

Re: Here Be Dragons



In particular, I was referencing the inclusion of dragons on maps from this period, in addition to the rise of the use of dragons in art during this period (see St George and the Dragon) because art was no longer constrained to Biblical subjects. I chose the Celtic style, because it was during the early Renaissance that this style moved out of Ireland and moved eastward.

See here for more on its use on maps

I don't want to give you the idea I don't TRY other colors. Out of the colors you mentioned the only other one that looked nice was silver. I think an additional reason I tend toward a limited palette is I use desaturated colors almost exclusively for the design and the bright shirt colors don't work as well with that.

Re: The divine recipe



Initially, I didn't look at the full view, because I thought "Those avocados are adorable but I don't think I would wear avocados." Then I did, and saw the recipe is in Spanish and the other stuff is even MORE adorable. Suddenly I am voting for this shirt. What happened???

It occurs to me maybe I should make the recipe before buying though. I can't go around advertising til I try the product! ;)

Yeah, when I read that, I kept thinking, "Who tucks t-shirts in anymore?" Maybe it's a requirement for office/school faculty in some places or something. In which case, such fascist practices should be resolved immediately! :P

All designs submitted on the derby page are put in the current week's derby which always has a theme. There's a different submission page somewhere for non-derby entries. Also, I think you're required to show the design on a shirt template somewhere in your entry.

Is it possible to just remove it and submit it later?
