Re: Canadian Periodic Table
Great idea... but it would be nicer on a different colour shirt... and how about adding the title of Canadian Periodic Table across the top to complete the look.
Re: O CANADA!
I have no idea what the equivalent of this design would be if a Canadian did a similar concept on American icons, but I'd like to see it.
Regardless, I hope my shirt is funny--in honor of SCTV. Either way, I've taken into account lots of feedback from woot-ers and almost matched my previous entry's votes already, so I'm as happy as a lumberjack. Thanks...
Re: Get Busy
Great shirt, looks awesome! You definitely have some skills and are putting them to good use. Keep it up!

Re: Wild animals of Canada
This is probably my favorite design so far in this derby. It's different and intelligent and aesthetically appealing (good choice with the small text).
Re: What'd you say?
Well, it was exciting while it lasted. Thanks for all the votes, comments, and the short time in the fog, everyone! Bit of a rollercoaster, these woot derbies.
This is very intricate. Nice work!

Wow - how'd my detail JPG get so blurry?

Thanks Narkus. Coming from the Ostriches artist, that means a lot!
A word of explanation to those of you who have not yet met any "Canadians" abroad. This shirt is dedicated to American tourists who pose as Canadians through the used of shirts or more commonly Canadian flag patches on there backpacks in order to avoid foreigners disdain.
Do real Canadians wear shirts with Canadian flags on them?
Props of course go to the fish pocket shirt for inspiring me not only in the design of this shirt but in my entire participation at shirt.woot

Re: ON TOP
This was obviously going to be censored.
But it is quite neat. I really like the role reversal as I think I have seen shirts before joking about Canada being on top.
Re: Posers Eh!
Cute shirt... I live in Washington state. I've had some great times in Vancouver, B.C., and I don't know if you know this, but among its charms is the fact that it's considered to be the city with the very best Chinese restaurants in this part of the world. It's impossible to get bad food in Vancouver!
I've never disguised myself as a Canadian! ;-)

We have had problems with dark colors on dark shirts before, and Id be afraid that the dark red wouldn't show well on the black. I really like the design. Its like a really nice tattoo design for someone who loves Canada. I have a friend who will probably be moving there soon and she would love this as a funky tattoo. I hope it does well for you though. Nice to see more interest in the derbies
I was thinking the same thing about the dark red. If that becomes an issue, I was thinking of changing the darker red to cherry red and the foreground to white.
Re: Royal Anthem
I love the Sex Pistols!!! Great design. Nice touch with the earrings.
Re: Lake Ontario Sunset
C'mon, Lake Ontario Sunset. Stay in the fog, stay in the fog... waving my magic wand, doing my best sorcerer's apprentice imitation. Stay in the fog... stay in the fog...
Obviously, I want this shirt.

Re: Canada: It's What's For Breakfast
Mmmmm... You can't go wrong with pancakes!
Good luck~ O:
If I buy ten of these shirts at $10 a piece and than mail them back claiming that they are one dollar bills woot will send me another shirt? cuz that would be pretty cool.

That's so funny to me, because when I had family in Detroit, they used to take us across to Windsor to get Chinese food.
The Bridge between Detroit and Windsor has the distinction of being the one place where you can cross into Canada going south (and of course cross into the US going north).

I appreciate that you are calling it the Canada goose as opposed to the Canadian goose (which is not its name). I once heard a rumor that Canadian geese are not named for the country but instead for a naturalist of the same name. Can anyone confirm or deny that? Wikipedia says no but I have little faith in it.

Re: Rating Canada
Woo hoo! First time in the Hotness!
Re: Traveling Abroad
"Don't shoot I'm Canadian, Eh!" I love it.
My shirt was thinking along similar lines. Now I guess I am the hoser.

It is not mean to point out facts. The fact is that there are enough shirts on the market that say "EH?" and have a maple leaf that this is not at all unique. It's not hatred for you. I would say that for anyone who had posted this.

Wow--thanks for all the positive comments and the votes everyone! I honestly thought that only a couple of people I know would vote for this, but I guess I was wrong... This is awesome!

Re: National Flag of Canada
I am very glad to see that Joel showed up. Now I don't have to worry about my husband buying this shirt and upsetting the neighbors.
It also cleaned up the shirt pool so I can concentrate on what is really available.
Congrats to everyone who moved up.

Shigwarm won with a pac-man parody during halloween. If this gets rejected, woot's got a hell of a double standard.

Congrats on your win btw ;-)
Ya, I was going for something "different". Guess I went a little too "strange" on the colors. EH well. I don't mind sitting out this derby, the last one was crazy as it is. My vote is for THIS!
Cool Leaf scribble!
that's in the fog atm. I so want one.
Re: Glowing Polar Bear
I hope the designer comes back to answer the previous questions. Can't tell how many color were actually used to make this bear, or if half-tones were used.
bethebike wrote:For all of the negative comments about how simple the "Grow" design is, I could comment that this design probably took you less than 5 minutes, but I won't be that presumptuous.
And unlike the designer of grow, I wouldn't deny it!
The difference is that the other shirt took second in a derby which, by definition, was full of well thought out and well put together and time-consuming work. This is 15th in a derby about Canada. I've never claimed to be against simple design. Woot's just unable to read between the lines.
