Re: Four More Years!




February 29th may not be eligible for the summer Olympics, but he's always in time for presidential primaries and caucuses, and hasn't yet grown tired of running (and losing). If elected, he plans to promote equal rights for all, including the right for each and every day to be on the calendar each and every year.

And since it looks like I did not quite make the preview image big enough for the text to be entirely legible...
The text at the top reads, "No day left behind."

Kind of John Deere-esque, no? I tried a variety of colors, and as a male engineer, I have no idea what schemes look good to most. My wife approved of these colors, though, so they're probably better than my original pink on yellow.

I'm shocked the "3D shirt" on DBH that looks like a water-soaked ink stain wasn't submitted here.



Exactly, we need to learn from the votes; this is the voice of our potential customer. Personally, I enjoy cleverness as much as great art, and I'm glad others do too. We're here to buy and make c.ool t-shirts, not art for art's sake, though that may coincide with what people want to wear. I know you're speaking tongue-in-cheek Adder, but us submitters should recognize that this about one's skill in creating as broad appeal as possible, not about telling people that their taste is wrong. Btw, great work on "Annexing"; you gmv.

Re: Annexing February



Fantastic idea. Hits the derby theme right on without a printed word. I'd like to see this on a real leap year calendar; you could do a whole stick figure calendar theme with the holiday squares being decorated by workers.

how could both 1582 and 1584 have been leap years... its only 2 years apart.

EDIT.. and i'm a Rat, btw



I started the design, and then halfway through the process, I panicked and had to make a color coded chart to assure myself that they did always fall on the ame ones. It's pretty cool for the rats, dragons, and monkeys; a little less for those other 9 years. I'm a rat too. It's our year.

You know Sayah, there have been cute entries that have won here time and time again (Fablefire's entries come to mind) and I like her entries (so do many others if she's still selling her Scurvy shirt). I also like Edgar's entries which have a wonderful simplicity to his designs and he's got a great following. I honestly don't care for your attempt to rip on my design nor do I care for the lame attempt at sarcasm. If you insist on being negative, take it elsewhere. I don't have time for negativity like that.

When you arch the text, it will warp the letters a bit. The L can only bend one way to get across the leaping idea. I tried it a few different ways, This has the letter spacing much closer than normal just to keep it from looking so detached like it did with the original leading.

Re: Til leap year gives her one day more.



This shirt (and all the others like it) make me think that I could put some words in a circle with some swirly crap radiating from it and all of you people would vote for it. And for the record, I bought a nearly identical shirt on final clearance at Old Navy for 99 cents 2 years ago and never wore it.

Re: Februarium- The Bissextile Element



A new element has just been discovered! It has a half life of four years, is found in high quantities in frogs, kangaroos, and rabbits. It is Februarium! With an atomic weight of 365.25, it is the heaviest yet bounciest element yet discovered. Surprisingly, noone has done a design like this yet!

Kls, I love this shirt, but the text seems a bit forced. The colors, however, are perfect, and I for one would love to see a similar design in another derby without the text.

the sad truth is that this derby, by definition, will not get a purchase out of me, and the sadder truth is that I don't know if this is a fog entry. It's still total gold, though, whether it does well or not. It's only fair you know, especially as unforgiving as I was on Imaginary Day

As boring as it is to wear a clearly-leap-year-themed shirt, there's got to be a more obvious way of getting the theme across than this. Three little pandas and one big panda does not mean leap year to anyone, touching paragraph of explanation or not.

You that are voting for it and just doing so because you want to wear a cute panda shirt, and you know it.

Re: Take the Leap on Feb. 29



Something old.
Something new.
Something borrowed.
Something blue.

Leap day (Feb. 29) is supposedly the day that women may propose to men for marriage. This tradition is believed to have begun in 5th century Ireland as per an agreement made between St. Bridget and St. Patrick.)

The 3 people in the design are adapted in a sketch style drawing from an 1888 leap year marriage comic. Sisters or cousins competing for the same man's attention on Leap Day.

"Take the Leap" is written below the design and the numbers 2 29 adorn either side of the lower scroll.

The roses are from my own photographs and were also drawn in a sketch style to give the look of a freehand illustration which I thought looked nice with the antique feel of the overall design.

Thank you for your votes.
