Motion! Without it, we'd never be able to walk down the street and get a sandwich. Show us movement, action, motion, things starting off in one place and ending up in another. Move! Move! Move!

We hate to have to keep saying stuff like this, but: your design should deal with motion in a meaningful way, not just show things that happen to be capable of movement. A unicorn majestically poised on a mountaintop? No. A unicorn in full gallop? Maybe. A unicorn in full gallop, stylized in a way that conveys motion? Exactly.

But: use gradients, extra-fine lines, or extra-tiny dots at your own risk. We may not be able to print them.

Also, no text.

And finally, no asphalt shirts this week. It's time to move on from the color of stagnation.

I love that there is a color limitation.

Motion creates emotion. I remember one time I had this guy call me up, wanted to pitch me, right? Wanted to sell me stock. So I let him....

Does this mean we CAN use gradients? You MAY be able to print them, if you mean it when you say "We may not be able to print them". otherwise, why mention them?

Probably because a lot of people might use these to convey motion? I'm thinking gradients are still a firm no-no, while fine lines and tiny dots have been printed before; perhaps be careful with them when conveying motion, hard to print some of the thinner/finer ones.

This is an awesome theme woot! I'm excited! Also, kudos on banning asphalt tees! Personally, I've been dying to get another orange shirt. That isn't a common color on here for some reason, but it is my favorite so someone please design something awesome on orange!

There are 10 types of people: those who know binary, and those who don't.

I have NO idea if y'all are going to like my idea this week, but it's going to be FUN to do.... I'm really excited about designing this one... I just hope I can make the result match up to what's in my head...


.. I'm giddy just thinking about this! :-)

Speaking of orange, I'm doing my design on orange.

I'm going to design.. get this.. a skate boarder face-planting onto the ground at the bottom of a set of stairs/railing.

Complete with legs arching backward over the back, pants falling down (actually, it'd be UP)

I hope people aren't going to be confused by this...so many people who enter the derby can't follow rules as it is. They'll see "use gradients" and off they'll go. Why read the end of the sentence? I feel for Joel, having to delete all those entries that break the fules.

On another note, maybe I'll just resub Evel Knievel with some motion lines. I mean, it went over so well the first time. heh

A flying penguin being shot down by a turquoise duck wearing orange plaid!

Well you know, just a thought.

Bummer on the "no text" I have a great idea but it won't work without text...

I guess I'll just have to do two shirts this week... one for woot and one for my website...

Originally when I did it, I had done another layer with a stick figure hanging on the paper as it folded itself, then he was riding in it at the end.

What about on blue or baby blue to avoid any printing issues/give it a sky effect/appeal to more voters?

I.e., I think this is exactly what woot wants, so let's get it printed!

I like this a lot! I like the colors too, but after Fable's Zelda shirt this week, you may want to consider a different tone-on-tone look, like maybe light blue on navy? or white on light blue? just thinkin...

7 different ideas, zero time :/
Hopefully I can squeeze one of them out.
More than likely I'll be halfway done with one and move on to the next, then the next, etc until all are perfectly NOT done and the week is over.
