Re: Midas Goldfinger



I like it but (in a very vulgar sense) it looks like someone put their finger somewhere and found the wrong fluid when they got there.

According to Shirt Derby Stats:
Derby 20: Take your penguin to work day (twice to vote, plus removals/rejects)
Derby 20: Kick the Habit Day
Derby 28: Kick the Habit
Derby Now: May I Have Some More

So technically 5, though only four "different" ones. I must have just seen it so many damn times during Create Your Own Holiday that it registered as more often. Not to mention the same, other penguin in Travel, Winter, Invention, and Dreams

I disagree. I come here to buy original shirts that have some artistic ability to them. There are many artists here that fit in to that criteria. This is not one of them.

Well there is always next year....

Re: The World Is Mine (Resub)



Resubbed cause design was a tad small on the shirt, as many people pointed out.

Sorry to those that voted before, but i do hope you continue to support this design.

Thanks!

I like it a lot, I just don't see how it relates to greed, and am afraid it might get rejected. Its not like the frog can bite the spider in half and share with the other one.

I agree... BP's not as bad as others...

Sadly, I also agree that the parody claim is kind of pushing it here, the logo looks pretty straight up stolen.

EDIT: Oops, hadn't read the tread far enough... the whole image is stolen?!? geez

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!

That one. It's someone about to assassinate someone, so it's in questionable taste to start. It's pretty iconic, so it's obvious pandering through recognition. It's still under copyright, I'm certain, so if the photographer ever decided to sue, he'd likely win and win hard. And it's combined with a corporate logo... an oil company's, no less... so potential double lawsuit. There's too much infringement to fall under parody, and to top it all off, the whole juxtaposition of turning it into execution by gas (complete with gas logo) appears to have existed before this shirt did.

ETA: Not to mention the shirt itself and the thumbnail differ largely. This is so full of reject that it might as well go on celebrity survivor.

I meant the message the design conveys. I only care about what people who don't know the title would see.

Besides its tons better than any of the shirts I've seen lately from woot. Really says alot in a small little design. Echos alot of peoples sentiments and speaks volumes to us all I think.



You might not care if the image is copyrighted, but woot does:

Generally, yes. Unless:

Re: The New Highway Robbery



I really hope this gets rejected. Not only is it a stolen image, but it's on heather grey. Must we ALWAYS have some sort of grey shirt be in the fog? It seems like every week a grey shirts places. How about some color already. It's spring. Who wants to wear a dull grey right now?

nyadolla, you might want to simplify the apple, take the text around the barcode off, and try resubmitting.



Definitely not gradients, but I can't count the colours... looks like too many, but it might not be.

I just wish people could let things go instead of trying to get others designs rejected. If you dont like it dont buy it if it wins. No need to keep trashing it because of this or that.
I cant stand all those well designed shirts that looked as if they were some design program that exploded from the bottom corner of the shirt. Its almost all i see anymore on shirt designs from woot.
I also dont like many of the well intentioned but poorly done designs but i dont call for them to be rejected. If I like it I buy it. Easy. I dont like alot of things or people but i dont call for them to be done in.
SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE IS CALLING FOR A JIHAD ON THIS DESIGN AND I THINK THATS WRONG. DONT BUY IT IF YOU DONT LIKE IT. OR MAYBE DESIGN A BETTER SHIRT... OR JUST SHUT UP ABOUT IT ALREADY.

This design would be perfect I think without the smaller frog and whatever that is behind it... I can't really tell what is going on there but I really liked the design I saw in the forums with just the bigger frog eyeing the fly...
