The Clash's "This is Radio Clash" plays through my head whenever I see this. Very cool.

Oh, it hurt. Yes, it hurt very badly, and I foresee that your attempted parody does not re-contextualize the subject enough to escape the rejexecutioner's blade....



Oh man, that embrangles about your csupo shirt, that's a really sweet shirt! I would be so devistated... heck, woot constantly lets me down, so I don't know why I keep coming back here? My second purchase I got from them didn't even work!

I submitted this mostly because of Databit's blog on how Art Deco needs to be from France.

All that being said, if you don't like it, don't vote for it.



and you obviously misunderstood the validity of my question

I hope this doesn't get rejected. It deserves to win.

treebirdoctopus wrote:It's interesting because this is very cute. You say you don't normally go for cutesy, but this is the only one in the top that is "cutesy". It's just funny how people read very differently into shirts. Personally I think many of the others on top have much more depth to them. I'm not saying you're wrong, just that it's funny how different we all are in how we perceive art. Personally I think this shirt (if I could ignore the phallic veggies) would look adorable on a little kid, but that's about it. Obviously many people feel otherwise or it wouldn't be doing so well.



The one entitled 'sunshine' is cutesy, I don't know, when I see arrows pointing at a rabbit, I think, ohh someones hunting lol. I think the arrows look like 'kill me' hence why the eyes are so enlarged, so I guess thats why I didn't really pen it as cutesy loll. I think I'm one of like ten people who LOVED the shirt on todays woot too; I think I just have a weird taste.

I'm not a big fan of squids, but I really like the design detail in the background and the use of colors on this design. Great job.

Re: The Mechanical Penguin (resub)



This may not scream art deco at all to me, but I love it! First, I love a good heather grey shirt (even if everyone else hates that color...it's soft and comfy). Second, that penguin makes me laugh every time I see the thumbnail so GMV.

I think I like this one better than your other design. The colors really pop on the shirt. Nice work.

I'm in Miami...

Rejectees Unite!!



wooohooo rejectees! I was going to also resubmit mine, but mine really is probably not deco enough [I don't think woot expecting us to just google stuff, and then saying we didn't do it right is BS] I voted for this though! I regret not waiting to start my design until I had peaked (or mooched off as others do) other designs to get a better feel for what art deco is, but I still don't get it, or at least I stil don't see where the line is drawn between some being on topic and others getting rejected. Like 80s deco = bad, futuristic deco = good, bonnie and clyde deco = bad, and grunge deco = good, seahorse deco = bad, and 40s deco = good? Like dubya tee eff woot. lol.

Re: Dec'd Out Racing (resubmission)



Good to see you found time to resubmit with the shirt template and without the text... I like the design but not so sure about the placement. For me it´s maybe too big and a little low. Nice work, anyway!!

The bunny doesn't really look all that cute to me.

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

Thanks for that comment... In the middle of so many submissons is very easy to go unnoticed. I beleive that a lot of the people that vote in these derbys don´t take the time to really go trough all the submissions. So if you don´t manage to get on the top places or are not one of the "big names" that usually submit to the derby, you´ll need a bit of luck to do well. But I´m happy with the votes and feedback I got so far.

I'm not at all saying it's a bad design, but did I miss something? Why is everyone so obsessed with squid designs?

Awesome design. this derby was my first woot as well. i also had a pretty late sub. it embrangles that if you don't get your entry in within the first day or so you may not even stand a chance.

For me it's hard to tell. This one really does pop. Almost like a fresh breeze in Hawaii. The other one is more woot friendly if you know what I mean.. Thanks anyhow..
