Daedalus, way to keep your neck up and learn from your mistakes/misinterpretations. It's difficult not to get frustrated and discouraged in these situations, but you have handled this well, and I'm sure we will see more top-notch work from you in the coming derbies.

In actual life, she was something of a sadist and freely associated herself and her "charity" with theives, murderers, and despots. But nobody's got the orbs to criticize her except Christopher Hitchens.



I think what I like about her is that she lived in poverty and freely gave everything she ever got to anyone she saw in need - no matter what kind of life they were living. And associating herself with thieves and murderers? Reminds me a bit of Jesus. Criticize all you want (seriously - I'm not especially attached to her). I still think she wins hands down against any of us normal people in the "charity" department.

well said, ansharp. My first response was sadness and "say it ain't so, joe!" (dated quote of disillusionment)

but thank you, dk, for taking responsibility. I really look forward to your next entry - I've loved your work, and hope to get a print of one of your designs someday!

Nooooo - knocked out of the fog at the end.

I'll look forward to seeing it again in 60 days - it'll still be summery and appropriate weather for a yellow shirt!

That's okay. I know everyone was rooting for Edgar. (Heck...I'm one of his biggest fans!) I was hoping we might both make it to the top 4, but it wasn't meant to be.

Thanks guys! I don't think we'll see any surprises with the derby 3 this week. I think Cwarrington's predictions are probably right based on what I saw happening with the hotness. Edgar's amoeba did get a surge right before the end, but I don't think it was enough to overtake the suicide one.

I think the Dragon took a commanding lead this week.

My ideal would have been yours, Edgar's and Radiomode or sokowa's. Yours and Edgar's were easily my favorites.
Don't care for the mass suicide design.
Been staying away from the derbies for a while. I think it may be time for another break from caring. This was far too close and far too disappointing at the very end.

Best of luck to all who got their favorites this week. I realize I am often in the minority.

I just added the music entry to my cafepress store. I changed it slightly. Let me know what you think. It's listed under art-based designs.



I really like the 2-color version (lower half of the page) and especially on the off-white shown on the framed tile. Thanks for posting the link. I'll come back for something -- somehow the design just really works for me.

Why would the chicken be saying "Mom?" to the egg? If the egg came first, the egg would be itself, not its mother! I wish the joke worked, because it's a cute shirt.

Noooooo, I was going to get the nature shirt for my mom for mothers day, such a great design, and she loves yellow. I'm glad edgar got back in there but as far as the other designs go...well they were pretty meh to say the least. I'm really sorry this didn't make it, it was the best by far.

Thanks RG! The tiles print beautifully. I bought several framed tiles as gifts and they turned out great. I haven't purchased the music one yet, but I would imagine that it would print well.

Glad you like the design. Thanks for taking a look at the new shop.

Thanks for the support of "Her Motherly Nature". After 60 days, I am free to use the design elsewhere. I'll probably add it to my cafepress store if you are still interested. Would have loved getting it for myself and a few other mom's this holiday, but didn't work out this time around.

I know that I for one voted for this shirt and will look for it in your store later.
WOOT should print it for Mother's Day.

Interesting that it was rejected--it's two words, "Mom Spit" versus the trademarked "MomSpit' and while copyright of graphics covers instances of linetracing and closeness, the difference in the text is enough that it is not a trademark issue--the space would be considered a different spelling. I've noticed that woot goes with the "better safe than sorry" philosophy, though.

The credit for funny and wicked creative should go to Diablo Cody, screenwriter of Juno. If not for inventing the phrase, then for making it popular.

This is the shirt my wife wanted for Mother's Day. Rat's maybe I should have added my sad story to help you stay in the fog. Well guess I will go to Hallmark with my 10 bucks instead.

I am just devastated this didn't win. This is so representative of my 2 beasties, without the scaly skin though. Even the destruction on the background seems to go along with them. It was wonderfully done. I really wanted this one for Mother's day.
