Here's another look at the greedy king, if you're on the fence I'd really appreciate the vote...



This is the best drawing in the derby this week, and if it doesn't win I am going to be deeply disappointed in the voters. More than usual, even! ;)

And you'll get some good coin to help pay for tuition.



I'm not so sure any more, the pengiun is what people seem to like (which somewhat confuses me) and the king has been in the fog from the beginning (which I think it is definitely deserving). out of those in the fog I think I'll be the one to go at this rate.

Re: The Tycoon of ICE




This is a great shirt. I have been waiting for a while to see a good penguin shirt to get my penguin loving brother. (And he is 21, but still would wear this shirt.) I guess you could say the penguin wasn't greedy unless you noticed his completely unnecessary cane with the diamond on top.

Annnyway, I really hope this shirt gets printed. You've got a great cartooning style. Do you have a portfolio website by any chance? I'd love to see more work.

so, if you like this better than the thief design and voted for both, take back your other vote



I want that hermit crab so much, I actually did this. Who am I kidding, I've done it before...

Please vote for this shirt!!

And I'm not even including the ones that were gifts!

Re: Shell Competition



Thanks everyone for the kind words! I feel bad if you're taking away votes from the other guys. I've voted for 3 of the shirts in the fog and I'm hoping to buy some.

If only the hermit crab didn't have so many shells on his back, maybe he could climb the ranks a little faster... greedy little bugger.

Honestly....the first shirt I've seen in this derby that I'd actually wear. I like a lot of the other art, but not to parade about in. Thanks for the hard work!!!!

I love the steady, resolute, uphill crawl into the fog. Here's hoping that crab makes you some serious clams, and by clams I mean money.

And by crab I mean skill as an artist.

Re: The New Highway Robbery



Not that anyone cares at this point but I feel the need to clear my name or worsen the situation....whichever it may be.

First, I did borrow the idea from someone. Robert Amsterdam is not the artist. Nick Turner is and he is a close personal friend of mine. He has allowed me to use it on a blog I write but I did not ask to modify it and use it for a derby entry. I never expected to win or garner as much attention as I did in such a short amount of time, but it is what it is. I just loved the design and the statement it makes and I never forgot the way it impacted me when I first saw it. I also felt it was spot on target for the theme. Anyhow, my bad and I apologize.

To my defense ever so slightly, it was only my 3rd entry and I was not entirely clear what would be considered acceptable because I saw that old Starbucks Tshirt on here and it looked exactly like the real logo to me. I did modify this quite a bit if anyone cares to compare the two in detail, as his design would have been considered incomplete and Rejected for using gradients. Regardless - I just messed up and I assure you that I will not make that mistake again. I am going to tell Nick about this and you will all be sorry because then he will start entering the derby and everyone would have to wear a shirt designed by him, Tgentry, Jimyo, KlsWoot, or Cho.

What fun would that be? =D
Sorry again. I will hop off my pedestal now.

rres, I took the liberty to shorten your post, because I wanted to respond to the parts I left. This is not because the rest of your post is not important, but simply for brevity.

First, woot is an open forum with a lot of opinionated people. You sometimes need a very thick skin just to post here, but I assure you, the majority of the people here are looking to keep the level of shirt entries as high as possible. So if you saw negative comments, it was meant as constructive criticism. Some people could use more charm when making their criticism, but it is what it is.

Second, the group does not do the rejecting, the people who work for woot do. Judging from the statement about why your entry was rejected, I'd say it was not because of the BP logo, but because of the photo from Vietnam you used. When that was published on Time magazine years ago, it was a total shock to the system to look at it. For some people, it still carries that power. You have to be careful with violent visual images, since it can upset people. If this week's theme was aggression or class struggle, this might have been appropriate. But since it was greed this week, I am guessing that woot thought it was too strong a message.

Last, please tell your friend Nick that new talent is ALWAYS welcome. Competition is a wonderful thing when dealing with creativity, since it stretches everyone to greater heights. And as a tshirt buyer, I am always interested in new styles.
