I love this design a ton. Colonialism/Imperialism: The ultimate definition of Greed! I also love how the king is inching his hand closer to Africa... A sign of bad things to come.

It's late in the game now, but this could still work if you used two circles--one nearly shaded in and one with either no shading or a small sliver at the bottom.

What is unmentioned is that behind the slaves and the giant ice quarry is the Tycoon's personal jet made of solid ice. Slave penguins being driven to exhaustion, worked to the point where they fall dead on the ground, so one tycoon penguin can fly around in his iced-out-jetliner? This penguin doesn't fly for me!!!!!

Not that it matters at this point, but you might want to put this shirt on Cranberry to get rid of the box.

I don't believe this is a public domain image. Google search greed and it comes up pretty soon.

This seems like the time in the derby in the past few weeks where there's a rash of odd entries. I think someone's trying to make a point or just keep the woot judges busy or something.

not sure this has much to do with greed but, this is a sick design that I would use for my line, fantastic colors on a black shirt kudos you got my vote!

Wow, I wasn't able to check in for a day or two, so I just found this little thread and REALLY enjoyed it. Neat, to see some of your process.
Great job! Deserves more votes than it's getting.

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!

Thank you. This is my first Woot entry ever. And I had no idea about the timetables of the contest. You can be sure I'll be entering pieces sooner in the future

Man, sadness for the rejection. Ever read the Redwall series? This design brings back fond memories of those stories.

Well, unless I get about a 1000 more votes, it won't be up for sale. However, here's a detail pic if you want it. I'm glad you like it!

In self defence so that their designs don't get rejected... A conspiracy, not as far reaching as the moonwalk, but equally as cunning...

1) Please explain how "Greed for Power" is off the topic of "Greed" ?

2) Where is there a rule that says that they can't print the same sort of thing twice? How many tree shirts have been printed? What about birds? What about Ravens?

the beauty of that is that when the plane is getting ready to take off, they don't mind if there's ice on the wings.

He just might be a rich, entrepreneurial penguin instead of a greedy robber-baron penguin.

I mean, this is the 00's. And those diamonds might be moissanite. You never know. Just because el jefe doesn't dress like Bill Gates or other latter day fortune 100 guys, doesn't mean he's a greedy guy. He just has sartorial exuberance.

egg-actly. It's interesting that so many have associated the depiction of a typical business structure with "greed".

Re: DANGER! cupcake



no resub on a color woot actually does offer??

that is awfully sad.

and I think it's very on topic. no one <i>needs</i> cupcakes. and to try and get a cupcake that has the ability to physically harm you, is greedy.

but really, who cares? it's a great tshirt, and that's what woot is all about.

yeah that's exactly why I won't vote for this. The cute thing, it's just too cute. I know there are guys here saying "they are all man" and would wear this. I'm not really sure of the crowd you hang around with, but I can tell you if I wore this shirt out, being a man I would be the subject of ridicule. I'm not saying this isn't a good design...it is, for the ladies. Good luck wearing this shirt out if you're a guy.

Re: Shell Competition



Based on the current voting momentum it looks like this derby will finish tomorrow at: 1st- penguin, 2nd- pig, 3rd/4th- thief or hermit crab
so, if you like this better than the thief design and voted for both, take back your other vote

Yes, vote Shell Competition hermit crab - it is a very creative and well done , and an excellent statement on greed.

I can't vote yet, so help me out people!

Isn't the coin slot usually on the piggy's back?
I haven't studied piggy banks, but can't think of ever seeing one with the slot on the head... good job with its facial expression though.

Or everyone could take back the votes from the penguins. Sorry cho, but you've won so much and we've had penguins, share the wealth. Let the crab get some love.
