You don't like the olive one? It'll print much better than the brown. The AA olive is a nice green.

Re: Hummingbird



great idea, and I like the placement... you didn't feel like you had to make it overly large like some people do.
I wondered if anyone would do a hummingbird. in my mind it would've had a blurr of the wings, but yours is very nice!

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!

Instead of going around each other quickly you both awkwardly quick step from side to side until both of you are nearly face to face, finally spinning around each other as if it was choreographed. This shirt quickly lets any advancing pedestrian know which direction you will be taking.



I really like this explanation. I can't wear this shirt to work, but I will consider it for people who do this often.

gah! this is awesome... just a serene daysail on the bay or wherever :-D (obviously gmv!)
I've been slowly working on a boat one, but it's a trimaran with some wicked wake behind it from it's speed, oh and a wakeboarder (yes, it's actually been done in real life!)
anyway, working on my 7 year-old laptop is not helping my gaining experience... but hope to enter eventually this week just to finally get one under my belt!

Well, seeing as you've never uploaded a design; EVER. (According to shirt derby stats) I'm not buying the excuses. I don't buy that you've been drunk/modeling/getting married every day since July 07. =D Good try, though..

If Cho submitted this it would be fogged right now. Cho's monopoly of the Derbies has gotten ridiculous.

This deserves to be printed, as did the last couple of TGentry's work.

It's a shame how this place works.

Thanks for the comments everybody. This entry was made for you sailstud! Looking forward to seeing your entry.

MJC- Thanks for the nice words. I appreciate it!

Webfoot - I know someone else asked woot to combine accounts. I think it was Josephus. Don't know if it was a big hassle, or if it was done right away. In any event, I appreciate your vote under your other name.

I honestly thought woot didn't appreciate resubs from previous derbies... yes, people liked this shirt; unfortunately just not quite enough. it had its chance, and if woot staff liked it, you would probably have its chance again in another second chance derby or whatever. I'm sorry, but I just don't appreciate when an obviously talented artist does so well while seemingly unhappy with only one design in the fog and throwing up another popular piece they've already done. Thank goodness he submitted the third one (actually awesome, cho quality shirt), or I'd think he just took this week easy. If he were to sweep the top three of this derby it'd be rediculous!

I don't know about your college, but as I understand it, the problem with resubmitting your work is getting credit for it twice. i.e. if I had to write a paper for, say, a history class (unlikely given that I'm in Engineering) and handed it in for a grade, I could not hand it into another class to try to get a mark for it. That's just being lazy and trying to do half the work.

In that context, I would not call this plagiarism of oneself. =P


I did that twice in college. One paper was an art critique...although I only turned it in once; the "first draft" was actually a paper I wrote for my boyfriend at the time (I owed him for some help he'd given me). The second was my thesis paper, which normally is done in a class. I used a final paper from a different class for it. That paper was 19 pages when the thesis was only supposed to be around 10. I also told my advisor about it so it's not like I was being dishonest. The first one was though, llo.

Re: Go Dog Go



My wife and I have 11 greyhounds and probably 20 different greyhound shirts. This is not one we would add to the collection because that picture doesn't represent greyhound motion at all. The ears are wrong, the tuck is wrong, and the legs are in walking motion and not running. Honestly, it looks like you took a photo of a greyhound walking, reduced it to a single color, and then had problems separating it from the background.

i wanted to make this as minimalist as possible so the viewer had to take a moment to identify what it was he/she was looking at. once the mind identified it, i think the mind would carry forward to visualize the motion before really thinking about it. i hope this makes it more of a "concept" shirt and less of an "object" shirt, the goal being to make the mind think "motion"

Re: Army in my Pocket Version 2



not to be judgemental, just curious... is the pocket on the printed version a realistic size to look like a real pocket? I guess some pockets on polos now days are smaller than in the past, but it just looks kind of small on the shirt template image :-/

Here is a link to a photo set in my flickr pool from a lure coursing event that my wife went to - it shows what a greyhound in motion is all about.

This shirt IS very good. I think that's why it's doing well.

You are probably much younger than me, but your coments about someone else having an unfair advantage sound very familiar to me. Do you think Einstein had it easy as a Jew in Germany? Do you think Barbara Jordan had it easy as a black woman in the south in a career dominated by very well connected white men? And do you think that Lech Walesa had an easy time asking for changes for working people in communist Poland? Well, none of them did. They all faced incredible barriers but kept on, not because they thought they were better, but because they loved their work.

If you love designing, it won't matter in the long run what your challenges are. You will just want to design. And things will either click here or wherever you are meant to design.

I'm 25, so I'm not quite sure how much younger I am than you, but Cho's shirts have an advantage because they're Cho shirts.

If anyone else submitted the Cow Tipping shirt, it wouldn't be fogged right now, but he submits it and it's fogged within a few hours. His talent aside, he has an unfair advantage, end of story.

You're probably right - and that's why we have had some real stinkers win the derby. I'm just sick of these threads being little more than "great shirt. gmv." Are we all so sensitive that we can't take criticism? *sigh* ;)

I think the design has somewhat of a juxtaposition joke between the little Dachshund running with all his might and the Greyhound just walking to keep up...

Others have argued that this is not the case, so I won't repeat them.
But if it is, then it is something you will just have to deal with. No sense complaining about it, because people are tired of those comments. Just keep working at your designs and eventually you will find something that works for you and the voters.

And everyone will be bitching about your designs instead.
