Re: Liquid Hibiscus
1. Boni, you can't leave! The stats you've put together have been awesome and no matter what site you find, there are always disagreements and rudeness. Something about the internet makes the "rude" come out of people. And much of the time, you've (and designers and buyers) just have to let that go. Woot is here to sell shirts. Designers are here to sell shirts - yes it is creative process to but in the end, the thing they all want, is to sell a shirt.
2. Shirts like this do well because people do want them. And Woot is not Threadless or DBH or any other shirt site out there, it is Woot. And they seem to be doing pretty well - Today's shirt sold out, last week the two derby winners sold out. If you want wild and fills the whole shirt, you go to DBH. If you don't want derby rules you go to Threadless. I think that most people that are t-shirt addicts shop everywhere because each site offers something different. Which really is what art is all about - personal interpretation. If the artist and enough voters on Woot want this shirt it prints, and those who don’t like, won’t have to buy it.
3. I don't know if the artist was going for a crystal look or not with the flowers but that is what they look like to me and on the asphalt makes it very different. I won't vote for it as all asphalt shirts are no no for me but I think the colors look great.
hahaha... I think this is my longest post ever on Woot.
