Re: Resist



Resistance is futile! (if less than 1 ohm)


Great job, sir, especially because it makes sense to just use the one line.

The dragon looks so sad.

Re: SkyLine



Heh... this is awesome but I have to confess every time I see a skyline in this style it reminds me of "Frasier".

I agree, for this derby at least. This entry really makes use of the one-line restriction as part of the concept.

Re: I love Noodles



Very cool design. Hope you don't get the same treatment as the last guy who had a bowl and chopsticks in his design... people got all freaked out and accused him of being racist.

Re: Here They be Monsters



Good design, but I just think it looks too similar to Less is More (http://shirt.woot.com/Friends.aspx?k=7327) to be win-worthy.

Re: Winter Solace



Very beautiful. You wouldn't know from just looking at it that it was restricted to a single line. Great job!

If this one loses, the derbies will continue as they have in the past few weeks, with absolute-must winners being deprived of the title.

Re: Apollo



First derby attempt, eh? Well, let me be the first to tell you that yours is an excellent design! You have my vote!

What? I'm not the first? Well then, let me be the first to criticize your concept, design, colors, placement...

Just kidding... love the whole thing.

Re: Cosmic Energy


I recommend you withdraw this, and resumbit without the spaces filled in. It looks like you have a design done with one line, the theme for the week.

Re: String Quartet



I think this is my favourite design in the derby. It looks great and the fact that it's made with one line actually adds to the concept. Wonderful!

The placement of this design might discourage some women from wearing it.

Re: love notes



This is very cute, but the blurriness of the larger image worries me. It looks like it might be due to resizing the image up. Did you make sure to create the image at a higher resolution first? If it makes it to print, you need to be ready to submit a 16"x20" 300 dpi print ready file.

I quite like the design though.

Something much brighter to give the the full effect. I understand the name of the piece and why it's dark, but I saw you were possibly considering a resub... that's why I'm suggesting this.
It is really good though.



Ditto... lemon yellow ink on the asphalt shirt would be teh awesome

Re: beeline



I really like the concept and the artwork is great in general, except for one thing - the hive (I think it's a hive?) looks a little like...

Sorry! I think it would work better if the hive was in an overall diamond shape rather than a triangle.

Re: rise again




I could be wrong, but looks like you just ran LiveTrace on this photo:


Heheh... seriously, very awesome work. And I personally think it's cool that you used the pencil- really brings out the single line theme (and the monster effort you put into it).

Not seeing the "other birds" you mention. Just looks like fire to me (which is not a bad thing).
