Maybe the pig's still standing in front of the fire...?

Your mouth did nothing but warn the designer before a certain rejection. Text is text is text is not allowed this derby, as stated in the rules. ^_~

Thanks for the comment. This one is a sequel to my other submission Hula Pig so that is why it looks like it does. You're right that a version all in that style would be cool.

Yeah... I just couldn't stop thinking of the Polynesian fishhook necklaces when this derby was announced, so I just decided to throw this one in.

I'd have to agree that this is extremely masculine in form. It's still great, but I have to agree it's also extremely phallic, despite the flower.

Re: The Pig Fights Back



Is this shirt six colors? It seems like it's got at least seven in it... but I'm sure I'm counting wrong.

I've bought many shirts and incouraged people to submit in the start, but I have no idea what to do if I really would like a shirt as a the perfect gift, but it's not picked. So what can I do, ethics permit me from doing anything other than pleading? Wear can I get it if it never finds it way to the front of the pack?

After 60 days a designer can take it somewhere else to get it printed. Otherwise, you can't.

Keep up the good work! I'm happy to see this is in third place... I hope it stays there (or moves higher of course!) because I want to buy one!!!

Thank you, now how to contact designer to find out if they do so, as they are the resub maori birds? Which if it wasn't the fact that it would make such a good gift I'd just keep waiting.

Re: Maori Love Birds V2 (RESUB)



Earthart, let me know if you plan on doing a limitied print elsewhere if it doesn't get printed. This would make a great gift for someone and I'd really like to get a copy by the end of the year if possible. Great luck, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for at least a runner up print. Thank you!

Re: Luau Angel



I dunno, toe. Did you even consider that the line-work and stylization on this illustration would be way too well-rendered, visually stunning, and not even close to generic enough to have a decent chance at the fog? Just my two cents. Voted anyway.

No, I don't know if that's my dad. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's a trace of Peter Griffin from Family Guy . . .

Well, how do you think? ^_~

See that little [send message] underneath everyone's name on the left side of the page? Try there. Or you could just post that request here. I promise people usually read their own design threads.

EDIT: I see you posted a reply. Just so. ^_^

Yeah, it's six colors. Burgundy, Olive, Orange, Lt. Yellow, Peach, and a very very dark brown (basically black.)

sweet. that would be terrible to get this far and have it be more than six! I figured I was counting wrong, but also figured better to bring it up and have a chance to fix it than miss it and get dq'd!

This one is just incredible AnnaJo... seriously fantastic job on the fire, I'm really glad you posted that image of how you layered it, I'm sure it will be helpful for a lot of us. Great placement, too. I really think this will look great on a shirt.

Re: TREEmendously Original



I wanted to let everyone know that I did notice that I messed up my layering between the bottom blue tree and the bottom left (from the viewer) white tree. I will fix this in my print ready and send it to woot if it wins, so noone worry. Just wanted to make sure that people weren't just not voting for it because of that glaring error.

Re: Honu- spirit of Hawaii



very cool skek! glad I checked the derby page and saw it in the hotness. The mosaic gives it a really unique feel, very different from the other designs this week and from your other designs. Plus it's nice to see a design from someone who has actually been to hawaii! ;)

Indeed! It keeps flip-flopping within the 3-5 spots.

Re: Luau Dream



Awesome drawing/design.

Be careful with placement though. Some parts look like they're out of the printable area. I hope it doesn't get rejected for that. Seems like an easy fix, but it would be a shame to have to resub after coming this far.

BTW, congrats on making the hotness! GMV!

Hello Groowalla, thank you for making your premiere post such wonderful feedback. It is very much appreciated. It's a bit too late for this to get to the fog, but I am very happy with how it has done and truly appreciate the sentiment. Thanks again and take care.

Good luck!



Thanks kls. It appears you have done well with your kls/toe collaborations as well with them both currently in the top 20. Hard to tell which of my two designs would have done best since I pulled the other, but I'm happy with the results regardless. A few of my coworkers thought as you did and preferred the initial design, but an equal number preferred the latter. Thanks again for all of your feedback and assistance. Best of luck with your designs. Take care.
